    Hey guys,

    I know this sounds like a stupid question but I own a Nokia 2360 and want to transfer the pics stored on my mobile phone to my PC.

    How do I go about it?

    Any help appreciated. Thanks!

    you need the connection cable for the phone to be able to do that, unless your computer is bluetooth compatable.

    Unless your PC has bluetooth, you need a data transfer cable.

    Go to your wireless provider's store and pick one up. Might cost around $30.

    If your phone has a mini usb outlet, you can go to office depot or walmart, or somewhere and pick one up there. Look in the computer area.

    Not sure about PCs these days, but laptops now are pretty much standard with bluetooth. If yours has the capability, go into your control panel, turn on bluetooth, and make it visible to your phone. Then do the same for your phone, so it will read the PC. Then all you have to do is choose Send Pic Via Bluetooth, or whatever your phone says. Easy as that.

    It's really fast, this is how I take all my pics now. I can take a pic and have it on my laptop in under a minute.

    Wow! Where exactly on the Control Panel will the Bluetooth option be? (PC)

    Same here.

    Use that bluetooth crap if you want to send pics from your PC to your phone. Otherwise, just send a text/picturemail to your email address from your phone.

    When I try and send a pic it only gives the option of sending it to someone in my phone book (i.e to a phone number). Is there a way around this?

    Sorry for being so dumb :eek:

    But you must be able to type in a number rather than just select an existing contact. Try entering your email address instead of the phone number - that's all I need to do.
