With the sanyo 7400, the only way to get your photos and videos from your phone onto the computer without buying third party data cables is to send them as picture/video messages to an email address.

Anyone with this phone also knows then when you take photos/videos they get saved into the "In Camera" section, after which you can move them to the "Saved to Phone" section.

Now, anyone who took a really good picture or video and wants to keep it would naturally place it in the "Saved to Phone" section. So when it comes time to put them on the computer, obviously the folder you are most interested in is the "Saved to Phone" folder. But the idiots at sanyo (or whichever dumbasses designed the software) seemed to have decided that it would be a good idea to disallow access to the most likely folder one would want to send video/picture messages from. You can not transfer the pics/vids back into the "In Camera" folder once they are in saved to phone, which would get around this issue.

This is the most idiotic cell phone flaw ive ever heard of. Is there any way to work around this without buying data cables?

There is no workaround for this.
