Connect the phone to your PC with a data cable which should have been supplied with your phone.

With some newer smartphones, the data cable is the same cable you use for phone charging (USB). Plug that in to USB port on your PC.

Alternatively, if the pictures are on a memory card, remove it and put it in to a card reader which is often built-in to some laptops, or you can buy an external one.

You can also buy a usb stub is a bluetooth adapter. They vary in price but aren't usually expensive.

Simply plug it in. Possibly (but not always) you may have to install drivers (which if needed will usually be supplied with the stub). Other than that it's plug and go.

And then of course your computer is bluetooth enabled for all other bluetooth devices too.

Thank you very much for replying to me. I don't have a memory card and my cell phone is a ZTE in the back of my cell phone there is a card I pull it out on the card one side has gold red and in big letters this is what its printed UICC on the other side there is all kinds of numbers on the left and on the right side inf for rogers and its all white that all its placed under a grey metal then its the battery and that is it.....no memory card and no adapters. I will never again take pics with this cell phone NEVER!


P.S. Also I was told to send my pics to someone then they'll send it back to you in your computer from there you can take it back on the stick.

What's the big deal? Everyone takes pics with their cell! If you don't want to (for whatever reason), just don't do it anymore. Delete the pics & you're done!

If you have a froend who has bluetooth on his/her computer already, ask themto access the photos and copy them to a dvd. You can also copy them to a usb stick, but don't rely on that as long term storage. Similarly even a hard drive isn't totally safe from loss of data (photos included); so again make a dvd copy (ideally two sets) as well.

If your phone can send emails, and you know how to email photos from it... you "could" email them to yourself; and thus download and save themto your computer.

This method is a bit cumbersome if you have lots of photos. Phil's advice is the simplest approach, then my suugestion using a bluetooth adapter in your computer etc. I would be cautious about sending one's photos or any other information to just "anyone". If you can send them to someonelse, you can send them to yourself, your own email account?

The extremely basic cell phone I have lacks the ability to transfer
data to/from a computer via USB cable, so I have to send photos
I take with it to my e-mail. A bit clumsy, but it works fine.

I was able to get the phone and a tablet computer with bluetooth
to connect with each other, but I couldn't figure out how to use it
to send photos from the phone to the tablet.

Using bluetooth with even some of the current more "advanced" cell/mobile phones isn't always straightforward...

I know of one make/model where it's easier to use a usb cable to connect to a computer and transfer content that way; it being well nigh impossible effect a bluetooth transfer.

" My pics are PRECIOUS is that good enough for YOU!"

Of course they are, that's why we all take pictures. But if you don't know how to use your phone, why did you take pictures with it?

How do you charge your phone? Does the charger look like this or like THIS?

If it looks like the 1st one, all you need to do is connect the cable to your phone & the other end to a USB port on your computer. It will be seen as an external drive & you'll be able to copy the pics to your computer. If your charger looks like the 2nd one, you'll have to buy a USB cable. The dollar stores have them....for $1!

EDIT: another thing you can do is email them to yourself. Or text to email? Do you know how to do that with your phone?

The very basic cell phone I have cannot communicate with a
computer via USB. It can plug into the USB port of a computer
to charge, only.

I wonder if it would help if the OP were to tell us the make and model of the phone?

This is the support/download link for ZTE phones...

http://www.ztedevices.co.uk/support/

Page 52 in the manual for the top of the list model (ZTE Blade 56) discuses using usb to transfer content to a computer... And presumably all the other models have similar info in their respective manuals...?
