I've used a program called BitPim on MS Windows to copy stuff to/from 
'dumb' phones like that, it specifically supports Verizon phones.   I 
see there's a Linux version, but no idea what it takes to get working.   
In addition to letting you at the pictures, it will backup and restore 
and edit the address book on the phone.
