Problems With Verizon Fixed

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

We’ve been having some behind-the-scenes troubles with picture messages getting through to Verizon users this month. It appeared as if we were inadvertently being blocked by Verizon, but we’ve figured out a workaround, and quickly put it into place tonight.

We’re extremely sorry for any problems you might have experienced with the site or the iPhone app this month when trying to send picture messages to Verizon. If you have any further problems, feel free to comment in this post or contact us through our contact page.

Two Years And Going Strong

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Two years ago today PixDrop was launched from a tiny room with the idea that people around the United States would love to be able to send pictures from their computer to their cell phone or their friends cell phone. While smartphones like the BlackBerry and the iPhone have made it easier to save images onto your phone from the web, there is still a growing need and desire to send picture messages for free and avoid carrier fees, or web data fees.

We’re proud of the love all you users have shown us. We’re also proud of all of the love that Google has shown us over the past two years – almost 75% of our traffic comes from the big G now!

Be sure to check back later this summer as AT&T rolls out its picture messaging service for iPhone users, so you can finally send all those iPhone users a free picture message from the web!

Thanks for another great year!

Alternative Method For Sending Free Picture Messages Is Now Available! Works Worldwide With Any Carrier!

Monday, February 18th, 2008

Tonight we’re proud to release our free picture uploader (beta) that can be used to get pictures from your computer to your cell phone for free! Our new picture uploader offers users another way to get pictures from their computer to their phone if you don’t have Verizon Wireless, Sprint, or AT&T formerly Cingular. This method should work with all cell phone carriers around the world and on all mobile phones that have an internet enabled web browser!

How’s it work? You upload your picture with our new picture upload tool and you’ll receive an image ID with instructions on how to finish transferring the picture to your handset from our website. We’ll also send you a text message for free with the instructions plus the direct link to your picture. From your phone, you just click the link in the text message, or open your mobile web browser and go to where you’ll be asked for your five digit image ID. Then your image will be displayed and you can save it to your phone for free! Keep in mind that this works on all phones with a web browser, so you can send yourself pictures to your Apple iPhone or iPod Touch with our new upload tool!

Images aren’t resized or reformatted, so make sure to resize your images before attempting to upload. You do not need to send yourself a text message to be able to transfer your pictures, so you can use this method anywhere in the world, as long as your phone has a web browser! Keep in mind that you may be charged a small amount for data transfer if you don’t have a data plan. Also, note that this works great for sending pictures to your iPhone or iPod Touch over the internet!

The new free picture messaging uploader tool can be found at! Enjoy!
