My phone has infrared, and I want to transfer pics from my phone to pc via infrared, but I don't know if I have an infrared port on my pc. Excuse the blondeness of it all, but I've never mixed well with technology. So, what does an infrared port look like? And where will it be?

You usually get infrared ports on laptops, then you have to syncronyse the two and blah blah blah. Chances are you don't have IR on your PC, so best to get a bluetooth adaptor. I'm assuming you still have your SET610?

Get yourself a USB IR on Ebay

Get a USB Bluetooth on ebay.

It's faster and works up to 20Meters away.

You could put the pictures on the pc in your living room.

To state the obvious and maybe overlooked, not all mobiles have bluetooth.

The T610 does, and if I can remember, that's the one she has. Not too sure though, need confirmation.

Yes, and yes. I would have your phone, but I'm too attached to mine, unless you want to give it me for free :p

Pay for p&p then, I won't have any use for it!

Alternatively... some cases have IR built into them. The vast majority of motherboards have the connectors for IR sensors, but not many cases have them, so those connectors on the motherboard never get used most of the time.

In your case Alsieboo, the others are right - a USB IR is going to be less hassle technically. Bluetooth (if your phone has it) would be faster and probably less hassle to get working right.

Just posted this for other people browsing in the future.

The disk you got with the phone, white/green swirl has the sony photo transfer software on it, i forget what its called but its on there.

Now you only have to find the box.
