Three ways to get photos into your computer from your MY501C:

1 Buy a USB A to mini-USB B cable (under £2 at Amazon); switch on your phone; connect phone to computer with cable. You should now see your phone's internal memory and removable microSD card (if fitted) pop up on your computer and you can copy the photos you want. You may have to go to your phone's connectivity menu to configure the USB mode to 'USB key' first.

2 If your phone has Bluetooth (I think all MY501Cs have) then use Bluetooth to send your photos to another phone or to your computer (if your computer has Bluetooth--if not you can buy a Bluetooth USB dongle for a couple of pounds).

3 If your photos are on a removable microSD card in your phone (fits under the battery near the SIM card), then remove card, fit it to micro-to-full-size SD adaptor, plug it into your computer and copy. If your computer doesn't have an SD card slot, you will also need an adaptor to allow you to plug an SD card into your USB socket.

I find option 1 simple and reliable.

Good luck.

> In reply to celticeddie @ 2013-04-08 23:51 from pp0b - click to readDear Celticeddie--I also still use a MY501C (and bought a cheap second-hand one recently as a backup), mainly with 2MB SD cards as a cheap and cheerful MP3 player and spare phone. I'm pretty sure that the MY501C can't be unlocked via the USB cable or with unlock codes (I did some research into this a couple of years ago). I got mine unlocked at a small independent mobile phone shop for around £10. I believe that they had to use a special test fixture and cable. Please leave a further comment if you find another way.

Hello everybody! I am getting rid of this phone because it doesn't work anymore. After 3 years of lagging and slow motion, I finally am throwing it in the bin. If any of you could help me by telling me which option is the COPY all, to copy all of my Phonebook contacts from my phone to my card, I would really appreciate it. Because I can't read my screen, I can't do that myself.
Thank you!

I have had this phone for a couple of years, and it is pretty good. It stores quite a few photos, I struggled with the Bluetooth at first but I've got the hang of it now.
But the pictures and videos aren't the best quality and it only has one RUBBISH game (!) I am a teenager after all.
I'm bored of it now, and have chosen a new phone for my birthday in exactly a month's time :D.
Oh, and the vibration is REALLY loud and you can't turn it off - I used to leave it on my desk turned on overnight and I got texts and it irritated my sister no end.
But overall, a great phone, sturdy if you drop it now and again. It can slip out of your pocket sometimes but an otherwise brilliant phone!!

its the worst phone seriously, i had it for about 9 months and it stuffed up.. Don't worry, i was gentle with it and looked after it well, it's just a really crappy quality phone.

i replaced it with a samsing j700

i have this mobile in pink
i have had it for 2 years, it is a good phone and is still in perfect condition. But, it sometimes stcks and turns off for no reason. The music player is ok, but is not very loud. The camera is ok too, shame it dosent have flash though. The video was a big disapointment, it only lasts about 10 seconds and is very blurry and the sound dosent work all the time. I am getting a new mobile for my bday in 19 days! YAY!
Overall this phone is long lasting, but not the best quality phone. xox

I don't realy like this phone much.
it does have quite alot on it but ive had it for a yea and a half and its is brakeing asit turns itself off when i flip the lid down.
it doesn't have a very good camera either and doesn't have a light on it so at night you cant take pictures.
if you want all the latest things on your phone then i wouldn't realy recomend this phone but if you don't realy care about features then this phone is good for you!
