Hi,

It should work fine; this phone I think supports native usb storage, 
just connect the phone with a usb cable and go in Settings somewhere and 
activate the usb storage feature. That's how I use my Samsung ave II and 
my better half's Galaxy Mini, at least.
There's also Bluetooth if you're looking at transferring files. In 
addition to that you can install apps on the phone that can talk CIFS 
and FTP..

So no need to really mess with the SD card.
