If the data is on a microcard, the solution is a USB gadget which plugs into the computer and data can be moved/copied, as Animal said.

A program worth checking into is BitPim, you should be able to navigate to the list of supported phones
http://bitpim.sourceforge.net/

Problem might be the Samsung drivers which might or might not work.
Much of it also depends on the providers who lockout many features, or force you to pay for transfers by mail.

Reading howard forums also might get you an answer - here's one, but I'm not sure it's ok

I was sloppy in my writing. By a "USB gadget" I meant a USB card reader. That's a thing into which you plug the memory card (SD card for instance) from the phone. Then you plug this combo into a computer and it's recognized as a drive, so you can copy everything from the card. It's useful only of course if your phone permits saving all pictures on the little memory card.

Data cable is another thing. That's what can be used to connect the phone directly to the computer. And assuming you can find correct Samsung drivers (good luck!!) to work the USB port and a CDMA diagnostic COM port, then a program such as BitPim is used for data transfers. That's assuming the developers know that phone so that it is supported. When you got the data cable, did you also get the drivers that are supposed to work?

Outlook Sync No
WIFI No
AGPS No
TV-Output No
NFC No
PC Sync Application No

^ Your phone doesn't support PC Sync.

So your best bet would be to save the content onto a memory card and access the same using a memory card reader connected to your PC.

Alternatively, you can also purchase a bluetooth dongle for your PC and send files from/to your phone using Bluetooth.

The phone should come with the right software. My Samsung phone came with a CD of Samsung PC Studio.
USB cable cannot transfer the files inside the phone without the software. It can transfer files only on the SD Card without the software.

You can download Samsung PC Studio 3.2 from here for FREE : http://www.softpedia.com/get/Internet/Tele...PC-Studio.shtml
