i have the instinct, the first one that came out. I'm trying to have the pictures in my saved file to go into the camera file or in the SD card/computer. The pictures I'm trying to save are ones that people have sent and are now located on the internal memory of the phone (me not ones that i have taken).
On the Instinct all Pic's are saved on the SD Card, The ones you are referring to will be in the DCMI>Saved folder. Plug the phone into your PC and navigate to that folder, Or remove the SD card and plug it into a card reader and plug it into your PC.
I have done this, unfortunately i have misplaced the usb cable for my phone and i no longer count with that option. The SD solution only works with the pictures taken form the phone and stored there not the ones that have been sent to me and i have saved. Thanks for your help in i can find the cable i go ahead and try that option.
ALL pics are saved to the card, Even the ones sent to you. I have an Instinct and all the pics I recieved/saved thru messaging are on the card in the DCMI>Saved folder.
It's a similar software interface for most Sprint phones. I have the Katana Eclipse and same issue... if you go to the MY STUFF>MY PICTURES, there are images you may have "downloaded to phone" from a text message and you can't do anything but view these on your phone...
In fact, the options are...
2 Set As>Screensaver OR Contact ID
5 Delete All
6 Sort By
Sorry I don't have a suggestion to fix this but those files aren't in any tab on the micro SD
BTW - If you retype that entire funky email address you get for the photo in the email... it takes you to a webpage where you can view it... I believe data charges still apply for online viewing but at least then it is somewhere besides your phone!
???? If you need help getting your pics off your Katina Eclipse to your PC let me know and I will look for how to do it.
Sure, that would be great! The issue is with photos received in text messages (follow the link to get pictures). The pictures are saved and only appear in the MY STUFF>MY PICTURES category. I've looked everywhere else on the phone and SD and haven't found them elsewhere. I also don't have the usb cable for the phone.
All pics sent/received are also uploaded to your picmail account here; https://pictures.sprintpcs.com/publiclogin.do you can download them to your PC from the picmail website. If you want to save pics taken with your phone without having the USB cord just picmail them to your self then go to your picmail account on your PC to retrieve them.
I have a really old calling plan so maybe that's why I only get a My Places tab from picturemail. Nothing in the tab, just the option to set up a twiiter/facebook place. No big deal here, I get pics so rarely I'll just type in the direct url if I want to save one in the future. This phone is bizarre with all the seperate areas photos can wind up. Thanks for your help.
