I want to buy a new phone, how do I transfer the photos from my old phone on to it if it's possible?

Thanks Kez, I think I have to buy a USB lead which links phone to laptop, I wondered if the photos could all be moved at once
 
Mine phone is with Orange

Don't mention it  ;D
we have USB leads for £1, surely they wouldn't be much us - so looks like I'll have to ask which is the correct lead for my phone

ive pmed you

but

just been thinking

generally theres different style usb cables for different phones (the phone connector can be different)
if you use orange does it come with a cloud picture upload service?
if its android you can download and install dropbox on youre pc it auto syncs with whichever of your devices is online and you can access the same pics from it on whichever device you want, pc, phone, tablet etc

ive started using dropbox to share the odd file with online friends

Smart phones should come with the warning,This device can be a money pit,if you don't know what you're doing.
We bought 2 a couple of weeks ago, both pay/go. We are both frugal with calls, more a lifeline. We are on Wifi and CALLS MADE 2,a couple of minutes at most. Cost so far£12.
I plugged mine into computer to store a couple of pic's,It transferred all the phones preloaded images, and lots of computer stuff crossed over to the phone.

Money is still trickling out of our phone without making calls.  We have Wi Fi on, should we turn it off??.

Thanks mel, thought it might be that. All family are on contracts and all their advice is not pertinent
