    Now I saw that and I don't know how that works. Do you type in the IP on your computer, and that connects to your iphone and you transfer the files like that? I assume that finds your iPhone via the phone network, as because if you have to be on the same wireless network it would be just as pointless!

    it just uses whatever wireless network im using, when im at home it broadcasts to the home network and at work automatically switches onto my work wireless. Any yes just simply enter the ip adress into your web browser and up it comes.

    What sort of transfer speed do you get? I know it won't compare with USB...

    Also, just to clarify, when I say on the same wireless network, what I mean is could say I have my iPhone at home (god forbid!) and type in the IP address on my PC at work, and I can access the files?

    THis is not what I want it for, (dropBox is better than that!) but I want to ensure I don't have to be connected via wireless on the same network as the PC I want to download onto... so for example if I go to a company and they don't have wireless say...

    Works the same as AirSharing - you need to have the iPhone on the same wireless network as the computer you want to transfer to

    no i dont think that will work, they would need a ton of IP addresses to do that sort of thing id of thought? it would have to be with you, like when u transfer files from home to work or sormthing like that. When you plug your iphone into your pc, it appears in my computer, can you not copy it into that iphone folder? and then wherever you plug in your iphone does it not appear in my computer.

    Thanks, that helps.

    I does appear, but you only have access to limited folders, such as the Photos folder. I have also tried to copy files to here and it does not work.

    @Domino, thank for that too

    VMware are working with LG on a virtualization solution for Android smartphones. The link below has a video of it in action on a Nexus One.
