Wirelessly Sync 1000 Photos from my iPhone

How do I wirelessly sync hundreds of photos from my iPhone? Without hundreds of clicks.

I have an old iPhone. Connection via the cable no longer works, and I'm running Linux anyway. So what's the best way to wirelessly sync up the more than 1000 photos I have on the device?

I've looked at a few apps, including PhotoSync, Wifi Photo, and Dropbox. None of them let me just upload the whole camera roll.

It would be best if I didn't have to jailbreak the phone, or use a for-pay 3rd party service, but I'm willing to consider those options too.

I don't have an answer that doesn't involve a photo publishing service like Flickr, etc. but if your connection cable doesn't work, you're probably not going to be able to jailbreak the phone.

Try Air Sharing, YMMV

email them to yourself.

but emailing them would take thousands of 'clicks'?

Response by poster: Air Sharing is a cool app, but it doesn't seem to have access to my iPhoto camera roll; all it sees are its own directories.

I also looked at some of the FTP apps, but again I can't find one that'll slurp everything up in one batch.

you can batch select photos to email from the camera roll. on the bottom left, you have a rectangle icon with an arrow in it. select that and then click on a bunch of photos. I think you can email 5 at a time, but you can copy a bunch more than that.

copy as many as it will allow and then paste in an email.

unfortunately, I think this is your only option without jailbreaking. And since your wire doesn't work anyway, I think you wouldn't be able jailbreak.
