How do I get pictures off this non working phone?

The phone is a Samsung sch-r430. It does not have service. Bluetooth is not an option.
I do have a usb cord but when I plug it in to my computer nothing happens.
What should I do?

 Try Samsung Mobile Pc Studio. software.

If you have a sim card from a phone with service, and this phone takes a sim chip, you could swap the sims to boot the phone, delete the photos or bluetooth them or whatever, then switch the sims back.

 If it can truly work over usb, you will need to find the samsung mobile pc studio. I didnt see this on the download page for your phone, which makes me wonder if it will work.

   I cannot find anything that says samsung mobile pc studio will work for this phone either.  I'm just not going to download something if I do not know if it will work or not due to my poor computer skills.
  I was told by a sales rep, "you can do that later" because that fit my situation and HIS SALE at the time.  I'm afraid if I go back to and find out I cannot do anything..........not good.

Is there any part of the phone that does work, did it work before or have you obtained it in this state?

Every aspect of the phone does work..........it does not have service.
Bluetooth was tries to transfer the photos but it did not work.
I was given a USB cord for the phone and was told to "just plug it in" and I could get the pictures off of it..........not

Ah well, you need the software application to transfer via USB.
Have a look around the manuf's site, see if that helps?

That is where I got the picture of the phone.
I seem to be looking through over 5000 files of things I do not understand.
What language will be used to title this software?....or,  What am I looking for?
Thank you

It'll be a software thing to manage your phone from the PC and transfer data. They don't behave like generic USB storage. (Well, I've not known a phone that does)
Ask Samsung or whoever you bought it from?

It appears you already have a picture of that phone. [/pedantry]

If you want to get photos off the phone, is there a memory card you can remove?
