    I have an Issue I would like to solve.
    I currently have an iPhone 5 with IOS 6.
    I have been taking some pictures and videos with the phone and currently have around 750 photos on the camera roll.
    The camera roll is the only album and all pictures are sorted by date taken.
    This is all good.
    Befora having the iPhone, I had a Galaxy Nexus, and before that a Galaxy Note.
    I have the pictures and videos I took with those phones and I would like to add them to the iPhone camera roll and also have them sorted by date taken.
    Because I had the Gnex before the iPhone, the Gnex photos should appear before the iphone ones and all them sorted by date taken.
    The same with the Note I had before the Gnex.

    Anyway, I have no idea how to do this in IOS.
    If I use iTunes to sync the folders with the pictures of the other phones, it will just create new albums and a photo library. That is not what I want.

    Can anyone please help me out.

    Thank you!

    I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure your problem doesn't really have a solution.

    The Camera Roll is only for pictures you either take with that phone, screenshots, or pictures you save... all have to be made on that phone though.

    The only way your other phones' pictures could be on your iPhone is through other albums.

    Sorry I stopped reading at the part that you wanted add those photos to the camera roll but reread it and you wanted it in date taken order. iOS 7 will fix this.
