other option is put a memory card in the tracphone, transfer pictures to it, take out the memory card, put it in either another phone or with an SD-card reader put it in your PC.

i read on MS help-forum comments about this phone that its software ((stupidly)) doesn't allow accessing files via USB, so that's probably a dead-end road. :(

but there's other ways, including bluetooth and an SD card. some phones & some carriers will work with an active sim card without you having to call the carrier to activate the phone in particular, too - i went through a pile of Sony's without ever calling ATT to tell them i was switching phones. just swap the sim into them and they work. that might be an option too, though most phones these days are using a different size, smaller sim card..

Late to the party here, but wanted to say I'm glad you got it all sorted. Tequila lives on in your computer's hard drive, now. :)

They came out pretty small, so I put them on Personalize for my screensaver, chose the tile option so I could see it better. This is my beautiful girl. :eek: She was about... 2 years old here. I did the pitchfork and horns on my tracfone.. lol

So the lesson I have learned is, never get a TracFone. Nope, nope, nope, nope, never ever ever...
