The application will launch exclusively for Verizon Wireless customers, and is available for download from the Verizon Wireless mobile storefront. To use it, Verizon Wireless subscribers sign up for a Photobucket account and enter their log-in information to link their Verizon Wireless account to their Photobucket online photo album.
Once the accounts are connected, the application instantly uploads photos already saved on the phone to the user's Photobucket account. The Photobucket Mobile Uploader then automatically sends any future photos directly to the same Photobucket account.
Verizon is the first carrier in the United States to be offering the Photobucket Mobile Uploader, the company says, and the application will be
available initially on 13 handsets. --Nina M. Lentini
