Help, My Daughter's Lost in Cyberspace!

Well, that's not quite true. She's not lost, exactly, more like being held hostage in my phone. You see, when we got these new phones, Adam was all excited about the camera feature. We've never had camera phones before, and, frankly, I didn't really see the point, since we have a perfectly good digital camera that does a fine job of taking pictures. But the phones were free, so I shrugged and said, "Why not?"

Apparently, I should have stuck to my guns, because now I can't seem to figure out how to get the pictures OFF the phone and onto my computer. I looked up directions on the Motorola website, but their instructions only covered how to send myself a picture message. That option is moot because we had the service blocked to keep little fingers from ... ahem ... accidentally sending such messages. The FAQ recommended the optional program "Motorola Phone Tools" to download (upload? I really need to figure out which is which!) with a USB cable. The software is $35.00 from the Motorola store. Oh, and our cell phone model (VU204) isn't on the list of supported hardware. Grrrrr.

We've got about half a dozen pictures trapped in our phones that we can't get out! Anybody have another idea? Or is she just stuck forever in the handsets?
