pic transfer

Do I have to have internet access from BB to transfer pics from BB to PC?  What driver do I need on my PC and how do I get it?

Re: pic transfer



No...your BB can interface with your PC without any carrier plan at all. You simply need to download and install the Desktop Software from here:

And then activate Mass Storage Mode:
