    I am not very familiar with my own mobile Nokia phone and therefore need some advice re. how to transfer images to my Ubuntu PC.

    No Bluetooth so I will need a USB data cable. What then ? Would I need to install special software like moto4lin but for Nokia ? ..doesn't seem to exist. Maybe Ubuntu already has the drivers ? Any advice appreciated.

    The Nokia btw is not internet enabled - no contracts just pre-paid. (I am aware that I could just send the images to my email address.)

    So I guess this phone doesn't have a removable memory card ? if not maybe the PC will see the phone as a storage device ?

    Well, only the SIM card of course. I will ask at the cell phone shop when I get into town next week. Apparently Motorola users can install moto4lin (similar function to Nokia's PC Suite for Windows) but there is nothing like that for Linux afaik.
    Due to very limited use I am a cell phone ignoramus :oops:

    I think I may have found the answer (thanks to Mrk's article) here:- http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/cellphone-sync.html :)

    Actually, I will probably require this either with, or to supplement wammu:-

    "gMobileMedia is a simple GTK+ application used to browse and handle a mobile
    phone filesystem. It can handle phones with more than one memory area (thanks
    to Gammu). It lets you easily upload and download images, ringtones, photos,
    and applications to/from your mobile phone. All you need is a data cable or
    any other connection method supported by Gammu."

    (From Synaptic)

    Will check next week when I will try to get a cable in town.
