Depends a bit on your phone, and on the Operating System you're using on your computer.

Most phones come with a CD full of device drivers - and if you install that on the computer before you plug the phone in, everything should be straightforward.

Having said that, if you're using Windows XP, or anything more recent, you may get away with just plugging the phone in and seeing what happens. Look on the screen of the phone, and if anything comes up asking you if you want to connect to PC, OK it. Either way, give the whole thing a minute or two to sort its life out, then on the computer, open "Windows Explorer". Have a look under "My Computer" and see if a new disk drive has appeared. Assuming it has, have a flip through the folders in that. Look for a folder called "DCIM". The pictures are usually a couple of layers further down beneath that, and can be dragged and dropped to any other folder on the pc from there.

Transfer pictures from old new phone


Your computer won't recognize your phone until it's drivers are installed. Google the model of your phone + the operating system +driver. Install the driver and then hook the phone to the computer by the usb that comes with the phone.

For example. If I had a Samsung Galaxy phone and Windows 7, I would type "Samsung Galaxy Windows 7 Drivers" into google. Download and install.

Another easier way to do it would be to simply Email the pictures to yourself and save them on the computer that way.

Good Luck

How do I download pictures from my AT&T z221 phone using usb sync and charge cable to my PC


The ATT Z221 has a micro USB port for charging. IF you attach it to your computer it will charge the phone. There is no way to move the images off you phone unless you send them via email to your account. Even then, you must activate you Internet connection and email. It would be cheaper to buy a camera.

Transfering pics from phone to computer


Normally you must download and install some type of software onto your computer first. That software should then recognize the phone when you connect it to your computer and allow you ot download your pictures. Either check your manufacturers website or call the support center for your cell carrier and ask them where to get your software.

DOWNLOADING PICTURES TO COMPUTER


Usually your camera comes with a software program for processing pics on your computer. Some of them come with a SD card that can be removed from the camera and put on the computer with a sd card reader (very easy). You can try these, you may also be able to find a free software package that you may be able to download to transfer your pics from your camera (you will need a usb cable for this, cost about $10) Your user manual should have info about this too. Good luck.
