If you connect your iPhone to your PC it shows up as a drive and you can browse your images in the DCIM\100Apple folder.

Is there any way to copy video to the phone without using iTunes?

  • Good point. Hrm. I guess if that's the only way... I have no idea why I haven't jailbroken yet. Seems like a no brainer. – Michael Pryor Oct 7 '09 at 18:20

There's a genre of iPhone app that allows you to move files to and from the iPhone/Touch. I happen use one called 'Air Sharing' which allows viewing of videos and other doc types within it.

They connect very easily assuming you have access to a Computer using Wi-Fi


Jailbreaking might be the best solution. There are some other tricky ways that don't require a jailbreak however.

If you have a DropBox account, you can download the FREE iPhone App. Drop some movies in your box, and you'll have access to them without iTunes.
