I think (IINM) if you plug it in and grant permissions (input passcode on iPhone and the like) you can access a mass-storage device in Windows explorer to which you can drag and drop content.

Check how much space you  have on the phone in case that's the problem.

Use https://www.wesendit.com/ to upload the files (one at a time if necessary) and get a link to them.

Then, open the link on the phone and download.

(Click on the File option)


If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Why slower than justbeamit.com or any online method?

I prefer justbeamit.com
Just curious if there is a reason you like that more than other file sharing sites? any specific reason?

justbeamit.com doesn't have an upload and download separately and files aren't stored online, also no limits. It's working by started the upload while the download is starting, and it's like a direct link from upoader to downloader.

So you like it in regard to privacy/security? I hear that. And the no limits is definitely a big thing.

Also, the time is cut in half, since upload and download or done simultaneously.

(Privacy/security isn't really the case that much, since it isn't actually a peer to peer connection, but runs through their server and if they really want then can keep it...)
