    I have an iPhone and want to upload a photo. No, I don't want to use photobucket or any other URL to link to. I just wanna upload it when I choose the photo icon. What is the glitch? This has got to be more user friendly....I don't understand. :(

    The only way I have found to upload photos from iPhone or iPad is by using the Tapatalk App. It is free, but you need to pay $1.99 for the photo hosting. Works great! The only thing it won't do us allow me to view or create PM's. I use Tapatalk whenever I travel anywhere to keep up to date on BYC.

    Have you scrolled down to the bottom of the page on this site to make sure you are clicked on "mobile" not "desktop".
    Makes all the difference on an iPad.
    Good luck!

    We're looking into this, but we need more info:

    When reporting a problem, please make sure you provide each of the following:

    • Specific device (iPhone 4G, Drod Razr Maxx, etc.)
    • OS version (see Finding your phone's software version)
    • Carrier (Sprint, AT&T, etc.)
    • What apps are you currently running - if you're using anything that limits ads or scripts, this is especially important.
    • A screenshot, if possible. This is pretty simple on iOS, but on Android 2.3 there's no way to do this, unfortunately. android 4 is generally holding power + volume up for 3 seconds, but may vary by device.
    • Reproduction Steps for Bug - be as specific as possible!
    • Check the quick start guide also.

    Hi, I have an iphone4s running ios5.1.1, carrier is verizon, 3g data network, and no limiting apps. I don't get the option to upload from my phone, I have screen shots but can't upload them w/o going somewhere else to get online w/my laptop..... Any update on this... And/or, do you need the screenshots? I can verify I am on the mobile version.

    Thanks :)

    I'm using an iPhone 4S. iOS 6.1.3. Verizon 3G. No apps that should limit ads/scripts. The comment box has the photo icon. Will let me walk through the whole thing. Shows that's it's uploading. Then when it's done, no picture. Again, I can take a screen shot, but can't upload it....
