Inserting anything other than a USB cable into the phone seems to be a no-go.
There is one slightly wider and thinner recess,
but no metal is in it.
It looks like a slightly less dumb model would use
the same outer case and a somewhat different inner case.

/dev/bus/usb/002/007: character special

I found my Service Guide.  My phone is a Samsung Gusto 2.
A link near http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/gusto-2/#Camera,%20Photos%20&%20Videos
tells me that Samsung Gusto SCH-u360's,
among others,
do not support picture transfer.

Anyone know better?

Anyone know for sure whether bitpim would work if I could make it go?
