Can't upload pics to web

I thought because of the camera & blue tooth in the phone I could upload pictures to the web? what a waste of money. If anyone has an app that does this put it out there , this is rediculous.The phone leads you to beleive it will work with the internet, RIGHT?

Hi Carolyn,

I don't think it says you can upload pictures to the web in their description or my review. However, you're right, I don't think you can directly upload photos to the web. Here are a couple of other ways below.

Facebook solution

Facebook lets you upload pictures directly to the site via email. They give you a private uploading email address (this is not your regular Facebook.com email address). Then you can send emails or MMS (picture) messages with photo attachments to the private email address and it should upload to your account.

Myspace solution
Similarly, you can upload your photos to Myspace.com by sending them via MMS to MYSPC (69772). Note you have to set it up first.

Twitter
There are services like Twitpic which let you upload pictures to Twitter via email. They also give you a unique email address for sending your pictures.

Flickr
Flickr also provide a unique email address and they will even send a Tweet from your Twitter account that you've uploaded a pic to Flickr.

Creating Email Contacts
Create a new contact, and use a first name like "Facebook", then click Options -> Add detail -> Email address. Enter the private email address for uploading photos to your site. Once that's set up, you can send picture messages (with photo attached) to that contact, and it should post on the account on your site.

I hope these workarounds are of some help.
