Okay Mark. When you have time could you give me the rundown on how to post a picture from my phone?

On the RAZR it's pretty simple. But you have to know your phone's email address, so do this first:

1) take a picture with the camera
2) click "Store" while looking at the picture
3) choose "Send in Message" on the next screen
4) type text if you want, or just hit "OK"
5) choose "One Time Entry" at the top
6) type in your email address here
7) choose "Send"

Now wait and it should send. Give it a few minutes and then it should show up in your email box. You just sent yourself a picture.

The point of this exercise is to figure out what email address your phone sends from. So, look at the email you got, and look at the From address. It should look something like 1231231234@blahblah.alltel.net or something like that - it should have your phone number and your provider in it.

Once you have that email address, go to this page:

http://www.livejournal.com/manage/emailpost.bml

Enter the email address of your phone in as an "Allowed sender address". Then make sure you have a PIN entered and just hit save.

Now, to actually post to your LJ with your phone, first you want to add LJ to your phone's address book. Just add a new entry, call it LiveJournal, and set the email address of the contact to be:

jedi_john+0000@post.livejournal.com

You want to replace the 0000 with whatever PIN you chose. Just set it to that exactly. Now, when you want to post a picture to LJ, you can do the following:

1) take a picture with the camera
2) click "Store" while looking at the picture
3) choose "Send in Message" on the next screen
4) type text if you want, or just hit "OK"
5) scroll down to LiveJournal and choose "Add"
6) choose "Done"
7) choose "Send"

These instructions work for my Cingular RAZR, yours might be slightly different but it should be just about the same. Let me know if you have any issues!
