USB can be connected to a PC usb port, just need a adapter (such as the GE USB 2.o CABLE KIT, 10' sold at walmart). when connected, open the flip and select 'mass storage' and your PC will recognize the phone as 'removable storage' and you can xfer pics etc..hope this helps.

I have found the Motorola WX416 to be a very good cell phone. Many of the complaints listed are just down to learning to use the phone correctly. For example - those who complain of short battery life - make sure you have BlueTooth turned off if you don't use it. BlueTooth will use power by trying to link with other devices. This goes for ALL cell phones. To those who complain of not getting many bars - I find that I usually have about 2 bars, but I can make and receive calls in places where my old phone wouldn't even when it had more bars. I have never missed a call or text while showing 2 bars or so. The volume is more than adequate, you just have to find the settings to set it up properly. I use the built-in alarm function as my alarm clock each morning. The calendar/scheduler is easy to use. When texting, you have to find out which mode you like the best (predictive T9 or standard) and get comfortable with that method. It's a very good phone, but not a perfect phone. I would like to add voice dialing and a volume control on the side of the phone, but these are pretty minor and not a big deal for a $35.00 phone. I would recommend buying the black phone since the red paint may chip and I would also suggest a carrying case to protect the phone.I really have no complaints with the WX416. It is now the 3rd cellphone that I have owned and I like it. I did buy the accessory pack with the car charger (always good in an emergency) and the protective case. It's a good investment for a very good price.

Great little phone for the money. You get more than you pay for because you get Consumer Cellular's great plans and services. The small size of this little flip phone allows me to carry it in my pocket or even a small purse. I still can text, take photos, and go on the Internet to check my email with the data plan.

Great phone! We wanted a very basic phone just to keep in the car for emergencies, and that's exactly what we got. This phone is perfect for our needs. Despite its low cost, it is also the best cell phone we've ever had. The sound quality is excellent, even in places where signal strength is only one bar. This phone and the Consumer Cellular service far surpass the more expensive options that we've tried with two other major cell phone companies. This is our first experience with Consumer Cellular, and we're sold!
