Default 8700G - Backup or Copy Pictures to Mac or PC

Please Login to Remove!

Hello
This is not a post without searching and trying. I have spent about 3 days doing everything people suggested in the forums.
I changed my desktop manager from 4.2 to 4.1. I tried eFile, I tried SplashPhoto. I did all that fun stuff.

I get images from my family onto my Blackberry 8700g via BB Messenger cause they are formatted for size and great for quick viewing in Pictures. I must have over 30-40 in there. I have tried to back it up to my Macbook using Missing Sync for Blackberry and that didn't work. So finally moved to Windoze and tried everything but it just doesn't show up anywhere.

I want to upgrade my OS from 4.1 to 4.2 using Bharti Airtel upgrade (that's my provider) and I want this done before I do that. Will upgrading mess up my Pictures folder btw?

Any, absolutely any ideas to do this would be phenomenally helpful.
Thank you.

On OS 4.1 the only way to move your pictures from the BB to your PC is to email them to yourself. However, if you upgrade from 4.1 to 4.2 then you can use the Media Manager in Desktop Manager to transfer the pictures. Your pictures will be backed up and restored during the upgrade.

Hey
Thanks. I can't email from my bb unless I upgrade to 4.2.

And you think that for sure my Pictures will get backed up when I upgrade right now?
