How do I get pics from my Windows XP laptop to the "cloud" and then onto my iphone? Having some trouble figuring this part of MobileMe out...:confused:

I don't believe MobileMe actually does OTA photo syncing yet.

You can upload your photos from XP to the cloud, but they won't go from the cloud to the iPhone Photo App. To do that, you'll still have to sync with iTunes.

However, if you go to me.com with your iPhone's browser, you'll get an optimized version of your online photos.

That's weak tea, but the best they provide -- to my knowledge -- right now.

You can't find where to type in your username and password, or you can't find your username and password?

The first page for me.com is the login screen, unless you're already logged in.

If you don't have a login, are you signed up? Do you have a free trial or paid account?

Sorry...when I go to .me.com w/safari on the ihpone, the screen appears does not have a place to log in. It does say Already a member? You can access this inforamtion directly from the applications on your iphone or ipod touch.

I'm using the 60 day trial right now.

You would be correct sir. That is the only way to do it. Best way right now is to simply use iTunes. Use your online picture gallery for the occasional pictures you want friends and family to see.

It's not a solution to be able to download photos from the cloud to store on the phone, but I use Sugarsync to back up all my photos from my PC to the cloud and I can use their iPhone App to view my photos. I love it.

Rene,
This may seem simple to you and I hope it does. When I sync photos from a folder on my XP desktop, it works fine. The problem I'm having is when I try to add additional photos. Itunes replaces the current pics with the new pics. I can't seem to find a way to add more than one group of pics. I have plenty of room on the phone. Do you have a cure for this issue?
Thanks,
Frank

If I understand you correctly. I believe you need to go into iTunes and check of the folders with the pics you'd like sync with the iPhone.
