    I've been fiddling around with this for 20 minutes. Have NO idea how to get pictures off my phone. Want to upload them on my computer. Anyone? TIA!

    I have enabled syncing of photos but I believe that only puts photos into the phone?

    On a PC, you can simply plug your phone in and it should be recognized as a storage device. Open up my computer and you should see it listed. The rest should be self-explanatory.

    "Download into the phone"?? As in PC to iPhone or from the internet to iPhone?

    1. Put the wallpapers in a folder of your choosing.
    2. Open up iTunes w/ your phone plugged in.
    3. Click on your phone in iTunes.
    4. Then click the Photos tab near the top of the window.
    5. Check: Sync Photos from... and then select: Choose Folders from the drop down menu
    6. Browse to the folder you put your wallpapers in.
    7. Sync your phone.

    Yeah, iTunes is kinda funky. You'd think you could copy photos on the phone the same way you copy them off. But sadly that isn't the case. Maybe there's a better technique but this is what's always worked for me.

    Trying to incorporate essentially a Mac based program into windows would make anything funky lol

    I had this same question! Thanks for answering. It's been such a pain as I only had 16 GB and I didn't know how to get the video off my phone w/o compressing it. I think that my smugshot app sends pics to SmugMug uncompressed, but video gets compressed everywhere. I feel so stupid for not trying to just navigate to the phone!

    Don't feel stupid Emily. In fact Itunes cumbersome interface was one big reason I left the original iphone years ago and was a Blackberry fanboy for the last 2 years. Maybe just needed some friendly and helpful folks to help me get comfortable in how Apple does things is all.

    @Guru - Thanks! I really, really dislike the iTunes interface and try to use it as little as possible. Thanks for helping me find the answer! I'm up to over a gig free, which will have to do until I can get a 32 GB one! Much, much better than the 20 MB free, though!

    I usually just email them to myself and save them to camera roll. Much easier!

    No worries Emily. People are very helpful here I am finding. Just like Crackberry (which was a great board and I'll miss).
    Thanks Cleveland. Yep now that the iphone finally has many of the features I just couldn't live without I am back. I do wish gmail push was faster and I STILL am cumbersome as my first make out session with the cut and paste on this thing.

    Cut and paste on my storm 2 was a HEADACHE... this is so much easier by far and it's the same concept except it actually works on the iPhone lol and I'm still a member of Crackberry, I just hang out in the iPhone forum there, some good peeps in there

    Any tips on the cut and paste on this phone? My Bold 9000/9700 were awesome. Just hold a button down and scroll to the end of the text you want to copy.

    Just touch the word you want to select, then tap the choice you want in the option bubble that follows - select/select all. After you've dragged the corners of the selection tool a few times, you'll find it easy.
