Hi and Welcome to the Community!


IMHO, the best method to move files to your BB (from your computer) is via Mass Storage Mode:

  • KB11879 What is mass storage mode
  • KB23450 Copy documents to a BlackBerry smartphone using Mass Storage Mode


You may want to alter slightly from those instructions so as to place the photos into the proper folder(s) on your BB.


As for how to get your photos from your iPhone to your computer, well that's a function of your iPhone, so you need to seek help for that elsewhere.


Good luck!

To get your photos off the iPhone, you have a couple of options that I'm aware of.  First, get them off the iPhone:

1)  Using iTunes, sync the photos to your "Pictures" folder on your desktop.  Or,

2)  If you're on iOS 6.x, plug the iPhone into your desktop.  Go to My Computer after a few moments.  You should see the iPhone appear as a removeable drive.  You'll have to drill down through a couple of folder levels, but you'll find the photos there.


I recommend option 2 (if you're on iOS 6.x) as it's a lot easier.


Once you've found your photos, I'd copy them to a folder on your desktop, then copy to your BB media card, following the method listed here already by sdgardne.


Hope this helps. ~ecm
