I have a Voyager cell phone and do not know how to use my MicroSD card. I can put it in the designated slot and attach my phone to computer with cable, but don't know what to do then. I need some detailed instructions. Thanks for any help!

What do you want to do? Detailed instructions for what?

If you took pictures, you can plug in the SD card into the USB port. It should be recognized as a drive and you can copy pics to your hard drive - just one example.

If you plug the phone in, then I suppose you want to synchronize address book or something like that?
When it's plugged in, does Windows recognize it? Do you need to install Voyager drivers? What is Voyager?

And how is all this related to Email and Web Browsing?

Sorry, guess I am in the wrong category. I want to transfer pictures from my computer to my cell phone, which is an LG Voyager.

Before you use the card for anything, you'll have to format it. Put the card into the phone, then refer to the user manual for instructions. If you don't have the manual, you can do a search for lg voyager user manual OR take it to a Verizon outlet and they can show you how to format it.

Hook your phone up to your computer, wait for the computer to recognize the device.
If you get the box asking what you want to do, choose Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer. Click OK.
(I don't hook my phone up to my computer, so I don't know if you will get the above dialog box. I use an adaptor which came with my card)
Look at the top to find out what drive letter is assigned to the card. Next find out the name of the folder assigned for pictures. On my card, it's my pix.
If you don't have the what do you want to do open, click on My Computer from your desktop or start menu. Look for removable drive with a letter next to it. Open the drive to find out if it is the one for the phone. You'll know if it is from the folder listings.

Go to the folder containing the pictures you want to put on the card. Highlight the pictures, then on the left side of the page under File and Folder Tasks click on COPY this file. A dialog box will open-click on the drive letter for the card, then highlight the pix folder. Click Copy. Your pictures will copy to the card.

You will then be able to view the pictures on your cell phone from your phones menu. If your phone has a Media setting, that is where they will probably be.

To add multiple photos at one time, hold down the ctrl key while highlighting the photos.

I did everything that you said. I wanted to transfer only one picture to my cell phone and it did transfer. However, when I looked under My Pictures in the Media Center on the cell phone, instead of the picture there was what looked like a flower with an exclamation point in it. Do you know why the real picture didn't transfer? I am getting frustrated!

What format was the picture you transferred? Is it compatable with your phone.

Unfortunately I don't know why you don't see the picture. I can totally understand your frustration.
Maybe someone else will be able to help you with this issue.

I don't often do this, but we are not real strong with all of the cell phone gizmos. These people are:
