What's this BS about paying to download pics directly to PC?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by unixzip@yahoo.com, Jun 17, 2005.

  1. Verizon sales rep told me that I can't download pics from my phone
    directly to PC and have to pay .25c each time I do this. What the f---
    is she talking about? I'm getting a Motorola V265. There is no cable
    that I can connect and download directly ??????

    When I bought my Verizon LG VX6100 they told me at the store that the
    only way to get photos onto the computer was through pix messages, but
    there are actually cables for the VX6100. I think they just want you
    to use pix messages cuz they make money off it.

    Around $50. takes 53 640x480 PC-sized pictures at a load. Plug into a USB
    port and it downloads to the PC and recharges its Lithium-ion battery,
    ready for 53 more pictures. The battery will take about 14 loads of 53
    pictures before it really needs to be recharged. It's the size of a credit
    card and about 1/8" thick. Fits right in your shirt pocket and is made of
    aluminum, not plastic. It slides apart for pictures and closes to protect
    the lens which also shuts it off. It shuts itself off if you leave it open
    and don't do anything, requiring you to cycle it closed then open to turn
    it back on...battery saver.

    Just like the phonecam, it's point and click. It is so fast it will stop a
    waterfall, freezing the action of the water without blurring. It has no
    flash so you need lights to take pictures indoors or at night.

    Look over on alt.binaries.pictures.sports.ocean at the three pictures I
    just posted taken with this $50 camera. The picture of the gear in the
    sailboat was taken with just the light coming in the hatch, no flash. The
    waterfall is stopped dead at a local minigolf course. There's some kind of
    special automatic light setting it does when you press the button.

    Works great. No need to be a slave to some cellphone company hacks. If
    you want to send pix to someone, at only 89KB/pix, you can simply email it
    to them easy. Phoning pictures is a gimmick!....

    You know you've had a rough night when you wake up and your outlined in
    chalk.
     
  4. Get a cable for $8 shipped off of ebay and download free software at
    http://www.bitpim.org/, which should download pics. A bunch of info
    about it can be googled.

    BitPim for OS X seems to be buggy...i got it to work eventually but it
    works some times and not others
