This may be the wrong forum to post in but it's a question about my Blackberry 8100...does anyone know how to upload photos from my phone to the computer?

If you have a Micro-SD card you can transfer the photos to the card then use a card reader to read the photos into your computer, that's how I do it on my Blackberry 9000.

There is also a connector that goes from the Blackberry to USB and you can do a direct transfer

Yes, though that method hasn't worked on my 64 bit machine.

You might be able to do it wireless via bluetooth, that's how I did it.

Mrs colla, can you explain the bluetooth way? I haven't had any luck yet. My son says I need the blackberry software?? This is an older Blackberry Edge. I've got pictures on it I'd hate to lose.

If your computer has bluetooth, and your phone does too, enable it on both.
That way, the computer can 'see' the phone, and the other way around.

Pairing BlackBerry and Computer

On the BlackBerry
1. Manage Connections -> Bluetooth Options -> Add Device
2. Select your device from the list of available Bluetooth devices
3. Enter the passkey

On the Computer
1. Enter the passkey when the window pops up

Configure BlackBerry to Receive Files

On the BlackBerry
1. Manage Connections -> Bluetooth Options -> Press the menu key and select Options
2. Change the Discoverable setting to Yes

If you want to be able to transfer to your BlackBerry, this setting needs to be enabled. It is not necessary if all you want to do is send files from the BlackBerry.

Upload Photo from Computer to BlackBerry
Potential Usage: Transfer a picture to use as a background or for caller ID on the BlackBerry.

On the BlackBerry
1. Media -> Press the menu key and select Receive Using Bluetooth
2. You should see a message on the phone that says Waiting for Connection.

On the Computer
1. Launch a Bluetooth file transfer client. I used KDE's Bluetooth OBEX Client.
2. Click the Search button. With the Curve you should see an entry for a BlackBerry 8300 File Transfer Agent.
3. Drag files to transferred to the File to Send area then click Send
4. Press yes on the BlackBerry to allow the transfer
5. Select the folder to save to

Does that make sense?

Not sure if my computer is bluetooth compatible. Will dig into it and see. Thank you and I'll let you know what I find. My computer is pretty old too.

Another way for me if you have email is to attach the picture to an email and send it to an address where you have your computer and save the picture. I hope you have it figured out already.
