Thanks for previous advice but Wow its a minefield out there!
i have downloaded phoneminer which was a free trail with only a few bits shown and now they want money. the same with blackberry backup extractor (although slightly cheaper). Also magic berry which did not seem to do much.
I think paying to repair my blackberry might be easier. So for my possibly dumbest question... When my phone is attached to the desktop manager can i actually just move my photos to my desktop photo file or will i still need one of these converter programs to see em?

Oh! From your first post, I didn't think that was even an option! Further, don't depend on any data being left on the BB after the repair...from most reports I hear on this site, repair shops typically totally WIPE the BB anyway as part of their repairs. Or, their repair might actually involve replacing the memory chips, which of course means that none of your data is on the BB since it was on the old memory chips.

Assuming you did not have Encryption or Content Protection active when the photo file was created, you can simply move them from the BB (USB Drive) to some other drive on your computer. The files will be "normal" and completely readable and usable.
