Most mobile handbooks sold today have a good camera. But what if you want to download photos from mobile phones to computers so you can print them, download them online or send them by email? While different mobile phones may have different methods for copying images to a computer, these are 2 basic methods that people use to download images from mobile phones.
Download images from your mobile device with USB or Bluetooth connection to the computer
Phones come with a USB cable that allows you to transfer files between mobile phone and computer, as well as other features like using the phone as a modem to connect to the internet or to update the phone software.
Some phones, like most Motorola and Samsung phones do not require special software to download images from mobile phones to the computer. All you have to do is connect the phone to the computer with a USB cable and Windows will recognize it as a "USB Mass Storage Device", similar to the external hard drive. It will then appear as a disk under "My Computer". You can then view the disk, your photos will usually be located in a folder called "Photos" or something similar.
In some other phones, you will need to install special software on your computer to download files from your phone. This will usually be included on the CD that came with your device. If not, or if you have lost the drive, you should be able to download the software from the network operator's website.
Some phones can send files wirelessly without cable using Bluetooth technology. Your computer also needs to be Bluetooth-compatible (most modern laptops are). To check if your mobile phone can transfer photos using Bluetooth, visit the manufacturer's website.
Uploading pictures from your mobile device with MMS (MMS)
If a wireless carrier supports sending images to email addresses directly from your phone, you should be able to send yourself the image you want and open it on your computer. However, keep in mind that messages or data transfer charges may occur in this case, so please contact your service provider to be on a secure side.
These are the basic methods that can be used to download images from mobile phones. Remember that the best source of information specific to the phone's features is its user guide. You should be able to download it from the phone manufacturer's website as well.
