T-Mobile smart phones allow you to download pictures from your device to your computer using the Media Manager software, located on the memory card of your device. Once the smart phone is connected to your computer using a USB cord, the operating system automatically installs the drivers of the smart phone and the Media Manager software needed to manage the device. The T-Mobile smart phone will appear as a disk drive on your computer, and files can be transferred between the smart phone and computer using the Media Manager software.

The sync option allows for automatic downloading of pictures from your smart phone to your computer and vice versa. You will not have to manually download the pictures to and from your smart phone.
  • The automatic sync option can cause duplicate entries in your smart phone. To prevent duplicate entries, only sync the device when new pictures are stored in your smart phone or your computer.
