Uploading Photos from Phone to PC

by pofarm / November 28, 2007 6:01 PM PST

My wife has a Samsung a670 cell phone and is wanting to upload her photos via USB cable to her PC. We do not have internet access on our phones to email them to her address. Our carrier is US Cellular. I have been looking on the internet trying to find a cable/software package for her. Everything I have found has software for other carriers. What gives? Is there really a difference? I have found the cables without software also. Does she need software to upload pictures to her PC or will the PC just recognize the phone as a USB device? She is using WinXP Pro, if that makes any difference. Thanks!

I ran into the same problem at Samsung's site. There is information for Verizon, but none for US Cellular???

I could download the program and use it in Holland. Are you sure the GSM version of the phone needs other software to communicate with a PC than the Verizon version. Why not try?

The verizon software has features disabled for any carrier but them. I have sent off emails to US Cellular and some online vendors but haven't heard back from anyone yet.

I finally found out that US Cellular doesn't support uploading from this phone. The only way to do it is to sign up for a picture package and then they can be emailed to the computer. Figures they would set it up like this so you have to pay to transfer the pics. Sad
Thanks, all, for the help anyway.

I don't have your phone, your carrier, or this software. But a google search will get you posts of people who do who use this free open-source software to do what you want to do.

I searched all over and didn't find this. I'll look it over and see what I can figure out.
