Photobucket and Sprint Announce One-Click Upload to Photobucket

Posted by on Sep 8, 2008 in Feature Updates, Mobile, Press Releases | 7 Comments
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.
More information on Sprint Picture Mail is available at www.sprint.com/picturemail.  Additional details on Photobucket are available at http://blog.photobucket.com.

    Hello! I want to leave a comment.
    Before yesterday, pictures uploaded to photobucket still could post directly on my blog by html code. However, from today this action was banned by photobucket. It’s no longer to show the pictures on my blog. I feel very disappointed. It used to be the reason why I chose to upload pictures to photobucket rather than other photoalbum servers. From now, I think I should search for another photoalbum server for uploading my pictures.
    Thank you for kind attentions.

    I have a suggestion for Photobucket.com, but I can not find anywhere to submit it.
    I believe there should be a way to take albums, and turn them into sub-albums for another album.
    I want to organize my albums but have no way of doing this without deleting images and uploading them again into a sub-album.
    Please take this into consideration.
