To connect via USB:

1. Connect your phone to your computer using your USB to microUSB cable

2. Connect your phone as a mass storage device

3. Download the Atlas software

4. Touch and hold the top (gray) area of your phone where notifications are until something drops down...pull this down

5. When your notifications drop down, touch the USB icon (it's the thing that has three prongs on one side and one on the other)

6. Press Mount when the pop-up menu comes up on your phone (this will connect your phone to your computer)

7. When a pop-up menu appears on your computer saying Removable Disk (and some drive letter), select Open folder to view files

8. Now, you'll need to find your file.  If it's a photo/video, it will be located (if it's your photo/video) in DCIM \ Camera

9. Find the file you want and copy it to your computer.

 

To connect via Bluetooth:

1. Make sure your computer has Bluetooth capabilities because without it, you will have to connect it via USB

2. Turn both devices' Bluetooth on

3. Set one of these devices to visible (on your phone, this is done by going into Settings \ Wireless & networks \ Bluetooth settings and checking Visible

4. Use your other device to scan for available Bluetooth devices (if using your computer, you should find something called SCH-I500)

5. Proceed to pair these devices

6. After pairing, then you will want to find your photo/video that you want to transfer using Gallery (and selecting Camera)

7. Check what you want to transfer (by long pressing the images until a green check appears), then tap Share \ Bluetooth

8. When your phone switches screens to ask you what device to scan to, select your computer (whatever the name is)

9. Your computer will likely ask you if it's okay to accept some file being sent to you via Bluetooth, you'll want to select the option to accept

10. After the file completely transfers, go to My Documents \ Bluetooth to find the file

 

11. IF your video file will not play, you will need to change the extension from .mp4 to .3gp by going into the menu of an open folder under Tools \ Folder Options....  There you will need to select the View tab, and uncheck the Hide extensions of known file types and click OK

12. Then you can click on your file's name and when it highlights, change the extension from .mp4 to 3gp

(If you use steps 11 and 12, I would strongly encourage you to go back into your folder options to check the hide extensions again, especially if you're not tech savvy as you stated.)
