    I dont want to sync, because you cant delete them from the iPhpne, is there another way to do it?

    try emailing them to an email account that is set up on your iPhone.

    simply open the attachments and save them...that should work

    There was something called BUMP I believe in the App store. It allowed you to transfer files by way of bumping another phone? Dunno how it works but hey ... it's worth a shot.

    You have to copy/paste the images into the email one at a time.

    1. Start new email.
    2. Go to Photos
    3. Copy Pic
    4. return to email message
    5. Paste
    6. Repeat

    Rather than create a new thread, i though i would use this one to post a similar question. How many camera rolls can we have? Why is there so many "slots" in the pictures app? Thanks.

    dont listen to this, its wrong

    go to your photos app on your old phone and enter your camera roll

    tap the little arrow in the box icon on the bottom left

    this will let you select multiple photos to copy, simply hit copy when you've selected the photos you want to send

    then simply paste once into'll paste all of the pictures you selected

    Also, there's Mover for iPhone-iPhone transfers.

    you can have as many camera rolls as you want, you just have to simply do it in itunes under pictures when you sync it. You create a new folder, add the pictures you want and then have your iphone sync with that specific folder. Whenever you want new pictures, add to this folder or create another folder then repeat and sync

    That's what I do. I've got a folder on my desktop called "iPhone Image Collection," and within that folder I've got images in various subfolders. When I'm ready to sync the iPhone in this computer, I make sure that the folder is correctly designated in iTunes and I'm good to go. All the images are on my iPhone. When I want to add more images, I stick them into the folder and the next time the iPhone is synced they'll be on it.

    Another thing I do is to take advantage of MobileMe when I shoot images with the iPhone. I take the shot, then upload it to MobileMe. From there I can download to my computer and then do any post-processing that I might need to do (including resizing for sharing on forums), then I upload the processed image to my Zenfolio gallery. Voila! After that if I want I can leave the images on my camera roll or I can delete them.
