Hi. I'm looking for a way to back up my Android phone's images to my desktop. I was told that I have to connect the phone to my computer through a USB cord. I did so, using a USB cord that came with a my wireless headset (that allows it to charge). However, while the phone's battery started to charge (meaning that there WAS some connection between the phone and the computer), I didn't see anything show up in the My Computer window. That is, there was no way to get into the phone's contents, copy the images, and then paste them into a file on my computer. What am I doing wrong here? Thanks.

Call you phone service provider. They'll give you step by step instructions.

Isn't that more phone-specific than service-specific?

A lot of cables that come with rechargeable devices are NOT full USB cables, but USB power only.

Ditto on what Wizmo said. Instead use the USB cable that came with your phone.

The problem is that I don't believe that a USB cable did come with the phone. Sure, it came with a cord for charging, but the kind that gets plugged into a wall, not a USB cord.
