All the photos are on the SD card for the Tbolt.

You can use the USB cable method. Choose mount as a disk drive for the default USB connection.

Another option is to turn off the phone. Remove the battery and SD card and used a SD (with adapter as needed) card reader on the computer to access the files on the SD card.

Not possible. Your computer MUST be activated.

Your phone, on the other hand, does not necessarily have to be activated. You should be able to connect it via the USB cable and  transfer the files.

What do you mean "Computer Activated"?

As long as your computer is turned on and you have any minimal operating system on it, you can hook that cell phone to it .

This phone does not have to be registered on any service. It needs only physical power and on.

Once connected you use the usb cable to transfer your photos etc. to your computer/tablet/laptop

The computer can be a bare box but some sort of unix system has to be loaded on it. But any flavor of windows will handle the task.

Good Luck

I think the OP means that the "phone" is not activated, but it didn't come out that way.

That as you can see in my reply was what confused me.

As you must be aware since you keep your old phones is able to be hooked to your computers. Even though they are not in service any longer. Cell phones today are mobile mini computers.
