I ve looking for a while for a free place where I can upload stuff to your phone but they all somehow try to get you to either pay or want your phone number and we all know what that leads too.

Finally I tracked down this site http://www.meomo.com. It’s free and they don’t bother you with ads etc. Have a look and if you like it the let other know about it too.

I built my own little site for my own use about a year ago - that hooks into flickr, and lets you download as a wallpaper - but only works for nokia cdmas (cos that's what i had at the time - now i have bluetooth so the site is unused)

How is works it - you get your self an account at http://www.flickr.com (free account is okay) and upload the wallpaper you want.
make sure it's an image you have the rights to, as per the flickr terms and conds - i recommend it's a photo or artwork that you made yourself.

Then you add that image to his group:
https://flickr.com/groups/gadgetwallpaper/

Then point your wap browser here:
http://brenda.wallace.net.nz/flickr/mob/group.php

You'll also need to have an appropiate CreateiveCommons license on your photo - "All right reserved" photos can't be downloaded.

please note - your telco will probably charge you traffic for anything you download, that include previews of wallpapers.

I have found that www.zedge.no is a great site, the majority of it is free (see public gallery on the left hand side of the homepage). And everything is uploaded by users of the site

If you had had a decent look around the website, you would have realised that there is a daily limit on downloads straight to your computer. therefore via bluetooth, infrared ... etc you can get free ringtones, wallpapers etc. FREE of charge.
