Get picture off a cell phone

How can I get a picture off a cell phone that has no memory card and does not have "picture mail"?

Make and model of the phone would help as well as the cellular provider.
In some cases, you can simply use a USB cord designed for your phone to pull them off. In other cases, the cell phone company has locked down the phone so you can't do much with it without paying.

Well...I just looked at the user manual for yours from Sprint and they make no mention of a cabled connection...it's all about using the messaging options.

You may have to stop by a Sprint store......

Or just change your phone, there's a ton of new releases at reasonable prices
A new phone will not get the existing photos off the phone.

You're local Sprint store should be able to provide you with some options, either retrieve the photos for you, or provide a temporary data plan and instructions which will allow you to transfer the photos to your computer via wireless network.

A cable may also be an option, but would require a bit of time searching google.

I appreciate your comments. (It looks like spinister deleted the post)

But you are correct, the issue isn't having a phone with picture mail - it's how to get a picture off any existing phone...

That phone uses a standard micro-USB cable so it's real easy to find if you don't have one. Simply plug it into your computer and the phone storage area will show up in Windows as a Removable Drive. If it doesn't, some older Samsung phones need to have a setting changed in order for the USB to connect to the flash memory instead of the modem. It would be in Tools/Settings and look for USB Mode.. You want to set it to Mass Storage.
