Do you take pics with your phone?

What do you do with the pictures on your phone? Upload them to a website? E-mail them to your computer? Leave them on your phone to show your friends and family? At what point do you delete the pics from your phone, if ever? I've taken a couple pics with my phone already.. a few from today while my kids played in the snow. I sent them to Facebook, and then deleted them from my phone.

I usually take the memory card out of my cell phone every few weeks and upload the pictures to my computer and save them. Some times they get emailed, some times they get FaceBooked, some times I just keep them on my phone. All depends on what the picture is of.

I like take some picture with camera. Because it can take photo more better than cellphone camera. High resolution, focus, and etc. It's not difficult i think when we want to upload in Facebook, email, we just transfer the photo with USB data traveler and just sent it... But sometimes I use the cellphone camera when I don't bring my camera and there is fantastic event, and I want to make some file form that event...thanks have a good day...

I take pictures mostly of my cat Precious, or something that might strike my interest. Those photos are then saved to my memory card where I can attach my phone to my computer and import them. Since I use the photos I take with my phone's camera as my wallpaper, I keep them on my phone to use for that very reason. When I wasn't able to use a memory card, I would store only the best-looking ones on my phone and then delete the rest. My partner, George, saw the pictures I'd taken out in the truck the other day and says this is the best camera I've had on a phone yet.

My phone doesn't have that option but if I get one that did I would probably upload them to my computer so I can have them and maybe even upload them to myspace or facebook to share them with friends and family since basically all them them live out of state it is a way of keeping in touch to see how people have grown or changed..So the next time you see them nobody is shocked..lol

I only have 1 friend on my Facebook that is truly interested in looking for my pictures... which are typically of my kids of course. The rest of my FB friends probably never even bother to look.. but oh well. I love taking pics of my family and our outings, and whenever I get bored I will browse through all my old photos myself.

I used to take picture with my phone and I used to print them and put them in photo albums but recently I don't have enough time for taking pictures :(

Every once in a while I take pictures with my phone but not very often as the pictures are not as clear as on a digital camera. I prefer using my digital camera for photo taking but do not carry it around all the time. When I see a good picture, I will use my phone if I do not have my camera. I have uploaded pictures from my phone to my computer and to Facebook and emailed them. I delete pictures from my phone once I have them stored elsewhere.

I have a pretty good camera on my phone, it is 2.5 megapixel and I have as much as 16gb of space so I can take really lots of photos. At the moment I have about 300 pictures saved on my phone's memory, from time to time I backup them to my pc just to be sure to have them saved, then I delete the ones I don't need on my phone and keep the ones I like the most. It also happens that sometimes I upload them directly to facebook and so I don't need to save them on the memory of the phone.

Yes, I do use the phone camera to take pictures, but rarely. The reason why I'm not doing it because I don't like the quality of the pictures, but if I upload them to Facebook it isn't important because Facebook compresses pictures so the quality is lower no matter how good the pictures are. Nice discussion. Take care and happy mylotting!

I do use camera on my phone but most of the times, it's work related. I do translation job on a side & a lot of the times, I need to build a client profile. I usually upload it to an internet site & download them when I get to my office.

I can take pics with my landline phone? I have never owned a cell phone and don't plan on it anytime soon. My daughter sends me a lot of pics she takes with her phone though. As far as my digital camera, I delete all pics as soon as I upload them to my puter. As always..... HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

I do the same with my digital camera.. easier and less confusing. I only just got the cell phone, so still figuring things out!

I don't have a cell phone right now that takes pictures. It's really sad. I miss my old phone which was basically the same but it had a camera and a notification light that I looooved. But they don't make it anymore and I was in a jam and needed a phone so I got the closest phone to my old one that isn't a smart phone so that's what I got til I can justify a monthly bill.

A lot, yes. I love taking pictures on my phone and I think it's a lot convenient too. What I do with those pics? Well, I put some on facebook, others I just leave it on the phone for memories maybe? And also to show my friends and family.

I do take pics with my phone. Infact, i bought a camera phone recently for the very same purpose. Photography has always been one of my favourite hobbies.

Hi ma'am, My cellphone is Nokia 3310 and it has no multimedia option. But one year ago I had Nokia 6600 multimedia phone. I took some photos with it on various occasions. But later it started malfunctioning as it was a used phone. Then I had to discard it. But before that I transferred those pictures to my PC. Have a nice day.

Not much, because the resolution isn't enough, if we want to take pictures that you can remember later, is better to use the best camera you have at moment.

I am crazy about taking pictures from my phone just the other day I was out of statio and took a lot of snaps from my mobile. I download it on my laptop but do not like to post it anywhere else. I hope there is a site which pays us for posting pictures.

I just have a cheap tracfone that I don't even use that often so I can't take any pictures but I have viewed quite a few pictures from people that have taken pictures from their phones and in my opinion they hardly turn out that great(or atleast the ones I have seen) but in the same having a cell phone that takes pictures can be very convenient since almost everyone carries their phones with then you have it available for those "kodak" moments when you don't have your camera with you.
