If you share your??photos on Flickr, then perhaps you have come across a few photos that you like so much that you wish to set them as your mobile phone wallpaper? There is an Ajax based service that allows you to do just that. All you have to do is submit your query in the search box provided – it will then search through the database of Flickr.
If you like the image, you should proceed by selecting it, and then you will need to choose your phone model so that the size is customized according to your phone screen. Once you’re done, simply enter your phone number and wait. Sounds interesting? Then what are you waiting for? Go ahead to Send Me a Pic now. Unfortunately, it’s only available in the US at the moment, respectively Sprint , Cingular and T-Mobile networks have been tested to receive images from Send Me a Pic, although the results were not too spectacular.
They also claimed that Verizon phones will receive the messages containing the images but it seems to dissallow you to save an image as a wall paper. Too bad. Anyway, you might want to know how they’ve done it. I’ve managed to find out so that you can get the detailed information on Rock Star Apps blog.
Well, one more thing I’m interested in is that if I can’t receive the picture myself, I can send it out to my friends in the US. Not bad, isn’t it? But I still think it’s easier to use Photoshop or Irfanview to edit the photo and send them to my own phone via USB cable. Simple.
