Mobile to Mobile there are applications out there you can use for free, just drop in the Apps store and find one that you like:

for transferring between your mobile and computer i would create a share on the computer that you have access to and then pull down an app like such as ES File explorer and this will allow you to connect to a network location,

By far the easiest way would be to use Cloud Storage, like DropBox or m$ OneDrive, and just upload the files to there. Those CloudStorage places can be accessed directly via Web-Browser and don't need any special program to access your data. You can access them directly using PC's or gadgets like phones or tablets. You don't need to configure special network settings on PC's which can be a challenge for some users and OS's, and you can be at a different location.

Once the files have been downloaded from the Cloud, you can just delete it from there.

@rindi The OP doesn't specify what type of mobile and laptop, but BY FAR the easiest is if both devices are Apple products from the last 4-5 years, because they have AirDrop built in for quick discovery and file sharing with nearby Apple devices: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AirDrop

I use it all the time and it usually works very well. Since it creates a peer-to-peer wireless network (while maintaining the wireless link to the network), transfers can be very fast. I have regularly transferred 2 GB files between laptops in about 20 secs by just dragging and dropping.

The OP is probably not using Apple products, but since he/she didn't specify, that had to be added. For all the stuff Apple does poorly, AirDrop is a gem.

Answering the question without a specified device is tough, but taking it like that
Use a cloud storage service like Dropbox and e.t.c
Put the file in the public folder of your computer
Using SD card to transfer the data, assuming that it is a mobile phone
Use the Laptop to Mobile device USB cable

I tried using ES File Explorer. Although inside the LAN Tab my mobile discovered my laptop.
But when i click on it , it asks for username and password.
I tried giving my Mac username and password which i do for login into my Mac
But it doesnt accept it.. Just shows connecting to ....
I have enabled FileSharing on my Mac and Read permissions are there for Everyone.
