Things I learned the hard way: Transferring cel fone pix to computer

Phone: Samsung Alias. It has a micro SD card.

What I want to do: Move cel phone pictures from the internal memory to the memory card and then transfer to the computer

Problem: When I move all photos to card, take card out and then insert into USB card, connect to computer, do my file copying, then put back into phone, the phone’s desktop (background) images go away.

Solution: Power off phone before taking memory card out. Do all the transfer, re-insert memory card into phone, power on again. Voila!
