    Get this http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/mediasync.jsp

    And then connect the phone to your computer.

    And done!

    What BB is it? If the pics are stored on a microSD, you can just connect it directly to computer and copy them in hard drive. No need to install anything. If not, BlackBerry Desktop Manager should be able to do this as well - using the USB cable for the phone (also used as power adapter).

    Wow... thats one old BB :)

    If there is no mem card, photos are stored in the built in flash. Like mentioned before, get blackberry desktop manager. Rather, you can just download BlackBerry Media Sync if your latest desktop manager didn't come with it automatically. From there the process is very straightforward:

    1. Connect via USB
    2. Launch Media Sync
    3. Select Pics to Copy
    4. Select destination
    5. Hit Start or w.e the key is now

    a somewhat clunky, but still possible option would be to go into the BB and either email/MMS the pics to another source, and use that to then transfer back to the iPhone...worth thinking about at least

    It shouldn't matter.

    Use the desktop manager to sync your pictures.


    And no CDMA phones have SIM cards. SIM card is a technology of GSM-based phones.

    CDMA Blackberrys often have SIM slots because they are world phones...
    but yes, I agree in this case, being a CDMA phone, my original idea won't work

    That's not a CDMA phone though. That's a CDMA/GSM phone.

    The SIM slot is based on GSM technology.

    Blackberry Sync/Media manager is the best option, definitely.

    Even if the phone was activated and you could MMS/e-mail the photos out, you probably don't want to do that. MMS will likely downsample the images to lower resolutions, and the same reformatting might happen for e-mail.

    If you want the photos as they were taken, you need to sync to get them out.
