We’ve had some people emailing us asking when Verizon Wireless support will be fixed. Unfortunately, things are not looking so good and it looks like we’re still having issues with Verizon blocking our servers from sending messages to their customers phones.
However, we’ve made a work around for this problem by releasing our new beta picture uploader! By uploading your pics from your computer you can easily access them from the web onÂ your phone! We also send you a text message for free with the link to the picture to download. This actually works with ALL carriers as long as your phone has a mobile web browser!

Tonight we released not one, not two, but THREE new picture messaging articles! We’ve been hard at work trying to think of ideas for compelling new articles and researching/writing. The three new picture messaging articles we’re releasing today are:
U.S. Wireless Carriers’ Picture Messaging Rates
The iPhone And MMS: Corporate Oversight Or Savvy Strategy?
Blackberry MMS Support: Lost In Translation
We hope you find these picture messaging articles informative and as always you can find our complete list of free MMS picture messaging articles at http://www.pixdrop.com/articles/.

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 http://pixdrop.com/m 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 http://www.pixdrop.com/uploader.php! Enjoy!

Unfortunately PixDrop is experiencing problems sending picture messages to Verizon Wireless customers at this time. Messages may not be delivered. We are working to find a workaround and get it into place as soon as possible. We apologize for the downtime!
