Printer for printing photos from phone?

Post by dvds2000 »

My 80 year old Auntie has a Samsung and she's asked if theres any way she can print photos directly from it.

However, she doesn't have internet at home, therefore no router, so doubt it could be connected by wifi, but is there any way of connecting a phone and printer without a router? At a push I could put an old router in and connect them like that, however as its a 400 mile round trip it really is a last resort.

Any recommendations for how to do it and what printer?

Thanks :)

My printer allows me to e-mail stuff to it, it wouldn't really help but she could e-mail them to another printer elsewhere ... 7-pdt.html

This one has bluetooth?

I think some Samsung’s and other makes have WiFi direct and set up their own WiFi network without router - what model Samsung does she have
