    I want my pictures from my old phone!

      I just recently got a Kin Two m and i cant figure out how to get the pictures from my old phone's micro SD card to my Kin! Is there a way to move them? i really want them back.

          Yes, if fact I just did this myself this morning. There are a couple of things you can do, depending on your specific situation.

           

          You might be able to just connect your old phone to your computer via USB and simply copy all the picture files to your computer. Then you can use the Zune software to transfer them to your new phone.

           

          I had a microSD adapter. I think it came with the microSD card when I first bought it a couple of phones ago. It looks just like a hollow SD card, and you insert the microSD card into it. Then you plug it into an SD card slot if your computer has one. (Mine is built into my printer, but it works the same way.)  Then I copied all the image files from the card onto my computer and used the Zune software to transfer them to the Kin Twom. It was really pretty easy -- just like transferring from a regular digital camera.

           

          Now I have a nice selection of images I can use for the lock screen wallpaper.

           

          One thing to note is that if you were using one of your own pictures as the wallpaper on your old phone, it will probably be in the phone's memory, not on the card. So you'll need to dig into your old phone's settings to move it to the card if you want to include it in the move.

           

          Good Luck!

            I want to take the pictures from Kin Two and put them on the laptop computer.  I was able to do this with Zune up until today.  When I tried it today, it said the Kin Two device is not supported.  Only Windows 7 phone (???).  Now what?
