This phone is set up by default by the manufacturer to transfer only Music files via a USB cable to a computer. This makes it awkward to use for photos which is a bit of a let down as there is no memory card either that you can use to do this.

There are however two ways around this;

1) You can email the photo to your email address and then open it with your computer from there.

2) If you intend to use the phone regularly to transfer photos to your computer you will need to download software to manipulate the default settings on the phone to allow you to use the USB cable.

There is a freeware program called BitPim which you can use to do this - however I would stress that you use this program at your own risk. You need to follow the instructions with this program very carefully and you may also have to download Samsung drivers to get it to work.

The link to this program is here

If it is the case that this is a one off photo you want on your computer the simplest method is to email it to your own email. The BitPim program is very good and its also free but is a more complicated process and is only worth it if you want to transfer photos from this phone on a regular basis.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many thanks for using FixYa.

Samsung does not offer a Data Kit software package, for the purpose of transferring data between the handset and a personal computer or for using a Verizon Handset handset as a modem for a personal computer. However, depending on the model, there may be a media card slot located on the side of handset or in the battery compartment that allows information to be transferred to a personal computer with the use of a media card reader. For information on selecting the correct media card reader, please visit the Samsung Accessory website or check with a local computer store to purchase a media card reader compatible with both your computer and the media card type.You can download Samsung juke SCH-U470 drivers from samsung official site. Download Device(Install),USB Driver (ver.4.23 v3.4) compatible with Windows 98/XP/VISTA from visit this link thanks

I have the lg rumor 260 from sprint and it is connected to metro but i dont have text or internet how can i get it

As long as you have Metro as carrier (instead of Sprint which is the carrier that the chip was originally designed for) you won't be able to fully use all the features in your phone. When you switch to a carrier like Metro PCS, they allow you to take the phone that you used with a previous carrier (most of the times, AT&T phones as for I know do not work), by doing what is called a "light flash". They delete certain programming from the phone but do not delete the main "BIOS" software due to legal issues. Companies like Sprint among others are not happy with this Metro PCS initiative, but Metro itself hasn't broken no rule yet.
In other words, what you are trying to do is feasable, there's people that can do it (not in regular cellphone stores) but even if you get it done, Metro won't accept the phone because then they can get in trouble for what I mentioned before. Hope my explanation helps, good luck.

If you had your SD card set to store the pictures, then you can remove it from the phone and use a card reader to transfer your pictures. Walmart sells a Vivitar card reader that will take the SD card without the need for an adapter.
