With technology taking a step forward every year, nowadays we have ways to carry out file transfer between our computer and cell phone. Cell phones can now be connected to the personal computer, laptops, etc. with the help of a USB cord (one like that of a printer) or via Bluetooth (for which your computer needs to have a Bluetooth software installed in it).

If you have a “PC Suite” CD Rom that comes with the handset, you have to install the software for enabling faster and compatible file transfer between your computer and cell phone. Otherwise, you can always select the “mass storage” mode from your cell phone, after connecting the device with an USB cord and then exchange files between the cell phone and the computer. This process of using the USB mass storage method is more like using a flash drive or better known as the pen drive. By simple copy-paste method you can transfer all sorts of media files, software, games etc. to your cell phone.
