RAZR V3M Photos to PC software

Does anyone know of a utility that will allow the PC to communicate with the RAZR V3m via the mini-USB to USB-A cable I have for my Palm? The RAZR's interface connector appears to be a standard mini-USB. I tried just plugging it in but the PC obviously needs a driver to recognize what's on the end of the cable. Motorola sells a couple of packages of PC software tools for their phones, but I'd like to try avoiding the $30-50 price which includes stuff I don't want, if possible.

The main reason I opted for a 1280 x 1024 camera phone is to use it for misc project photo documenting at work and home. This RAZR replaced the original Verizon phone upgrade to Nokia 6315. (see posting from 8/29/07 on this subject)Once I finally realized that Nokia completely fails to support it's microSD feature I traded the 6315 in for the RAZR V3m. The rub is that the microSD slot of the RAZR though it works perfectly, is in the battery compartment and requires battery removal to access it. That's not something I prefer to do every time I want to download the photos taken with the RAZR to a PC.

You are in for what may be a long process. Basicly you bought a Verizon Phone and that is a mistake if you want to get your photos off your phone without paying verizon for it. The place to start is, And look on ebay for motorola phone tools you will find it at a much reduced cost, however even once you get it verizon has made motorola lock out the features you want, so you still would have to use there airtime. If you are up for the chalenge you may consider swaping your User interface with the Altel ( the closest to stock motorola ). It takes some work but it will free your from verizons grip. There is a lot you can do with out the full UI swap though, start at Hacktherazr and go from there. Good luck...
