Getting pictures off your camera phone

The least labour-intensive way to rescue your pictures from being trapped on your phone is to send them to an e-mail address in a multimedia message. But as you know, Bret, this costs money, so you'll be pleased to hear there are alternatives.

If your phone accepts a memory card, you can save your pictures to the card, then use the card to transfer the images. Most mobile phones use smaller memory cards in either the Mini SD or the TransFlash format, so if you don't have an adapter, the cards won't fit in most readers.

If you don't have a memory card slot, you can use Bluetooth or an infrared port to send shots to another capable device. Still another method is to use a USB cable that connects your mobile phone with your computer. Not all phones have USB capability, so check to see if yours does. Also, USB transfers on some phones requires software from the manufacturer.

If your phone doesn't come with any of the above features, don't despair, as you're not out of luck. A final method is to invest in phone-syncing software. Although these products require an initial investment, it's not an ongoing one, and you'll be able to not only transfer photos but also sync your calendar, your contacts list and your messages.
