    Hey guys.

    Is there any option to automatically upload pics to skydrive but ONLY on WIFI?
    I don't want it to take up data from my plan.

    I believe if you select to upload the highest quality photo, it will only use WiFi and should say so under the option.

    I want the opposite - to be able to upload all photo's using data regardless of size, used to be able to do this on my Titan.
    It sucks having to wait for wifi.

    Don't you see it right there? Good quality (May use data plan) and Best Quality (Needs Wi-Fi)

    Found the option, by the way :)
    When you go to the main pictures app, there's "..." and "skydrive settings", there you shall find it, and not anywhere else (at least in my device)

    @miki20021 thanks for the instructions, however, I end up with the same two options.

    See this link for a screenshot. http://sdrv.ms/10WTD2n Any other ideas?

    A guy from support I talked to said it's a setting relative to your region, in some regions it doesn't exist. Totally disappointing, what's the difference if I'm from Australia or the Netherlands, can't I just backup my photos the way I like?!
