Photobucket Just in time for back-to-school, Sprint and Photobucket have teamed up to allow Sprint customers to send digital photos straight from their phones to Photobucket, the leading stand-alone photo and video sharing site, in just one simple step.

It’s as easy as snapping a picture of the kids on their first day of school using your Sprint phone, then selecting Photobucket from the list of “Post to Service” options that pop up.  The photo automatically uploads to the customer’s Photobucket account, so family and friends can view it online anytime, no matter where they are.

The Photobucket feature is available on more than 30 Sprint phones, including the popular Samsung Instinct, LG Rumor, Motorola RAZR2, Sanyo Katana DLX, and more. 

Unlimited use of the service is included at no additional cost for all Sprint Picture Mail subscribers, including customers on Simply Everything plans and Talk/Message/Data Share plans.

As the first U.S. carrier to launch a mobile photo sharing service, Sprint has always given its customers more ways to use their digital photos – from sending to other phones and email addresses in one simple step, to organizing and editing their pictures in online albums, to sending directly from the phone to be printed at one of 9000+ retail locations, including 5300 Walgreens stores.

Photobucket has more than 46 million users worldwide and more than 10 million personal photos,  images and videos are uploaded to Photobucket every day for sharing with family, friends and the online world.
