    If you don't have a smartphone, you could attach the pictures (if they're not too many) to an email in Gmail, and then send the email to your phone using this article to get an idea of the email address for your phone. Your phone would receive the email as a multimedia message (MMS) so it works preferably if you have a messaging plan.

    The methods I use is:

    1. Connect my phone via a cable and transfer them across
    2. Use blutooth or infrared to send them accross
    3. Email the picture to a email account that is setup on my phone
    4. Or, upload the image to the internet, and download it on to your phone through a web browser

    You could try using Dropbox. Install Dropbox on your computer and move all your photos to the Dropbox folder. Then install the Dropbox app for your mobile and link your mobile to get all your files. Simple, and quick.

    Hi Dee - the easiest solution is to use a service that has a mobile app. One service covered here on MUO was PixDrop: //

    Then, you've got services like Picasa which I believe you can access with your mobile as well (and it has the option where you can email photos to your account).


    Basically - just look for any online image hosting service that has both the email submit feature and mobile upload/download access - there should be lots of them available. Good luck!
