FWD:Mobile Upload Test!

just set up mobile upload via text messages on blogger. seeing if it works! oh and showing a cute picture of charlie!

This message has been sent using the picture and Video service from Verizon Wireless!

To learn how you can snap pictures and capture videos with your wireless phone visit www.verizonwireless.com/picture.

  1. YAY! I am technologically savvy!!

  2. Ooooh, I need to learn to blog from my phone. How cool, and time saving, would that be?!?!
    Go you.

  3. If you are interested here is what you do!

    *If you go into blogger where all the tabs are, click on the “settings” tab.
    *You will then click on the “Email & Mobile” tab.
    *Scroll down to “Posting Options”

    Now there are two options. I enabled both. If you want to send Picture messages you have to use the email option. If you just want to post a short blog post then you use the phone text option. (I actually haven’t tried the phone text option yet….just the email. But I have them both enabled!)

    To enable the email go to “Email Posting Address” and you will add a secret word in the box where you see part of your blog email address. It can be any word you like. Then you will check next to “Publish Emails Immediately”. Finally, save under your contacts that email address (I did BLOGGER EMAIL as the contact and saved it as an email under that contact) and you will use that email address when you want to send picture messages (or maybe any messages) to blogger to post on your blog! Click SAVE SETTINGS at the bottom before doing the next step below.

    To enable the “Mobile Devices” (Texting) feature which is under the email feature. Click on “Add New Device”. A box will pop up (pop up video style) that has the information you will need to send a text to blogger to register your phone. It will wait until you register that device. You will send a text to the # 256447 and in the body of the text include whatever code of letters they provide you. All this information appears in the pop up box. After you hit send just wait and it will be just a few seconds and it will tell you that you are registered! Save the number 256447 as a contact (I did BLOGGER) that way you can easily send texts. Click SAVE SETTINGS at the bottom. Like I said, haven’t tried this one yet but want to give it a try!

    If you click “Learn More About Mobile Devices” it gives you a tutorial about this stuff by a guy who smacks his lips. UGH! I watched as much as I could handle to get the idea and as I am not normally technologically savvy it helped….but his lip smacking was driving me nuts!

    Hope that helps and is not too confusing! Let me know if it works!!

  4. NICE! I LOVE mobile blogging. It is the best when you are not home or at work and you can still get your blogs in.
