I currently DO NOT have the interenet hooked up on my phone. HOWEVER back in the day when i used to have a RAZOR i didnt need internet to send picture through texts or upload them onto my computer.
The ONLY thing i can think of is maybe the USB cord. I have already tried 2 so far, i wonder if BB require you to use their specific USB cord?
Your Pearl is not like the old day phones and carriers [like Sprint] that requires you to have a PC online connection to get pics from the Pearl to your PC. [which Sprint used to charge $10 monthly
But like others said, you need to install Desktop Manager on to your PC, that is, the program that is on the blue CD that came with the phone. Then connect the Pearl to the PC with the supplied USB cord, that also came with the Pearl.
Open up DM and transfer to your heart's content.
Bonus Comment: Since genuine MicroSD cards are a low as $15 nowadays, get a 1GB card. Then read the threads in here on how to install the chip, setup the Pearl and use the card.
