I can't find out how to upload photos from my Galaxy Y Pro to my computer, I have plugged it in with the USB cable supplied with my phone. Please can someone help. Many thanks. Chrissie

Have you installed Samsung Kies on your computer? If not download it from here and use it to transfer photos.

Thank you so much for that info, I have downloaded it and am just about to try the uploads, will be back to let you know how it goes. Chrissie

That was so helpful, many thanks. Wonder why they don't put anything in the Samsung manual telling you that. But it worked, thanks to you, Woolwell.

After you plug the phone into the pc, check the status bar of your phone. There should be a USB Connected link there to select which will give you the option to Mount the phone. Once you've done that your pc should see your phone ok. Don't forget to remove your phone from the pc using the tray icon before selecting Unmount from the phone. I hope it would help you. :)

Thank you too Eric, am going to copy and paste these helpful comments for the future! Have never had to do all this on my previous "non-smart" phones! Many thanks to you both, Chrissie

The instructions are on pages 94 and 95 of the full manual.

Ericwatson's instructions are slightly incorrect. According to the manual you can connect as a mass storage device but this only accesses the memory card. After you connect the usb cable you have to Open the notifications panel and select USB connected → Connect storage to PC → OK.

Here is a complete user experience review on Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos dual SIM phone. I’m using this phone for more than two months and recently the major bug was fixed on this model with the software update. Therefore, this is the correct time to share my experience and recommendation on this model. Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos – Model BT5521 is an entry level Android powered Dual SIM phone from Samsung. The price is very reasonable and features are good for the price. You are not going to miss anything important, at the same time not going to get anything extra from this phone for the price.

In Kies go to Tools>Preferences>General and tick the box to Auto-run when device is connected.

I have found this to be quite handy.
