    How do I do that with a cable from the phone to the computer?
    Windows 7 Home edition & LG VX5500 and VX8100 phones. No ability to text or e-mail from the phones.
    Thanks,

    You will need software that will interface with the phone and a USB/Connector/Adapter cable between the phone and the computer.

    You might start with the phone manufacturer's web site.
    Create a new drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    If your phone uses a microSD card to hold the photos you can remove it from the phone and using an adapter and a card reader attach it to your computer for file transfer.

    Unfortunately these are pretty basic phones and do not have an SD card slot. At a minimum you will need a USB cable with an end that fits your phone. You should be able to pick one up pretty cheap at any Best Buy or similar store. The driver for the 5500 can be found here: http://www.lgmobilephones.com/phone.aspx?id=10136, and for the 8100, here: http://www.lgmobilephones.com/phone.aspx?id=1118. However, you may want to give BitPim (http://www.bitpim.org/) a shot. It's Open Source software that allows you to get to the file systems on many popular phones. The 5500 does not appear to be supported, the 8100 is. Some people have tried other similar phone types within BitPim and were able to get into their phones that are not listed. Its something you would have to experiment with.
