I have an older phone a W755 if I use it to connect to my computer and transfer pictures will they charge me for the data. I have no data plan, and the phone is older than some on the board probably.

thanks Bruce

Verizon is not going to charge you for Bluetooth data transfer. They can't do they even if they wanted too. The data connection is going from your device to your computer directly.

The reason was because I had a hefty data charge on my phone this month and the only reason I could think of is that I transferred a few pictures to the computer and with it being an older phone I was unsure. thanks.

Thanks, I have no problem transferring. I had tried it, because I can not hook my phone up to the computer by cord. My computer came with Bluetooth which I had never really tried, so last month I used and was able to transfer the photo's I needed. When I received my statement their was a substantial charge for data which I did not know where it came from since I have a Motorola W755. They took it off my bill, but was not sure if it was the transferring the pictures because it was an older model. Still not sure where the data charge came from, since the phone is really old lol. Thanks Bruce
