Generally the software (and the cable) are available from your cell phone provider.

There was a program called BitPIM that would also do this - but it was limited as to what phone's it'd work with.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

This info is from the picasa help file: (free program)
Picasa finds most images/video files stored on your PC, including file types captured by many mobile camera phones. (See Systems Requirements for a list of file types). Simply transfer your photos to your PC per your device's normal transfer mechanism, like Bluetooth. (Note: Picasa has TWAIN and WIA support for importing from devices. Some mobile phones may have this support, which means that photos on these devices could be imported directly by clicking the "Import" button in Picasa. Check your mobile's owner manual.)

After storing the photos on your computer, open Picasa. Your images/video will automatically appear in the "Folders on Disk" collection in Picasa, under the name of the folder where they are stored on your computer. If the images/videos do not appear in Picasa, make sure that the folder where the mobile images/video reside is being "watched" in Tools > Folder Manager.
