Camera phones are a nice way to snap pictures on the fly since most of us have cell phones on us at all times these days. The problem is that it is difficult to get photos from the camera to a computer for editing or printing.

Alltel and Ontela has announced a new service today that costs $2.99 per month and provides customers with unlimited picture transfer to their PC, email, and web photo albums. The software automatically saves every image taken on the phone without the user having to even press a button.

"It doesn't even feel like software," said Dan Shapiro, CEO of Ontela. "You just take the pictures and as if by magic, they appear on your computer in your 'My Pictures' folder. This is the end of the 'photo graveyard,' where people take pictures and then leave them on the phone until they're deleted. Instead, we've given a new life to these memories by saving them to the places users care about most."
