After substantial time, and some money spent (a USB cable and a Bluetooth adapter), I have found that it is impossible to upload photos directly to your computer from the Virgin Mobile version of the Samsung Mantra, either by USB or Bluetooth.

I have confirmed this through Virgin Mobile customer service.

The only way to upload photos is to the web, at 25 cents each. Very disappointing, because considering the $20 price tag, this is otherwise a great phone.
