I have a Samsung Galaxy S4. I used to use a software called Kies3 to transfer photos to my computer. When I use it I get a pop up that it has been replaced with something new that transfers to other android devices.
I use an Otterbox case which is great but a pain to take on/off to get the sim card out. Is there an easier way to trasnfer photos to the computer? Both devices are bluetooth.
You pictures shouldn't be stored on your SIM card, Sherri. They're either on internal flash storage or some form of SD card.
Install Dropbox on your phone and computer. Images should transfer immediately after you've taken them over the air without cables.
There will be a 2GB limit on storage, but all you need to do is copy the images from the Dropbox folder (on computer) to your normal picture storage location then delete them from the Dropbox folder.

I also use Samsung and I prefer to use 3rd party Android tools to help me manage my phones on Windows. Here are some recommended tools: Assistant for Android, Android Manager for PC. Just need launch the program and connect device via USB or wifi. Then I can transfer all the files including SMS, contacts and media files.
