Old Cricket Flip Phone USB issue.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So basically I have an old Cricket Flip Phone from 2009 which has pictures on it which I would like to move to my PC. The info on the phone itself is "www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=2217". My issue with the phone is that I cannot get it to detect on either my Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 PC. The USB cable definitely works because it does provide a charge for the phone. When I connect the phone to the PC in the Device Manager I do see a new device under "Other Devices" which is named "Qualcomm". I have googled around and found two (not sure if official) drivers. However I can't get them to install. I did see a thread on XDA regarding some Qualcomm drivers but for whatever reason it was not allowing it to be trusted. And when I try to update the driver through "My Devices" it just says "Windows could not find drivers for that device". There are no USB options on this phone and I have already talked to Cricket's tech support.

Does anyone have any input on where I can find the correct Qualcomm driver I need for this phone? I would greatly appreciate it.

Install or Update Drivers in Windows 10
See "Compatibility Mode".

If that doesn't work you'll have to install a copy of Win XP, or whatever old OS the driver is for. Then you can get your pictures and then get rid of the old OS.

Do Not just install the old OS! You'll have to read about installing an older OS on top of a newer one though. It's not as simple as just installing the old OS.

The easiest way though would be to disconnect all your drives and plug in a blank, formatted drive and install to that. Then install your driver.
