    How do I connect my phone to our wireless network in order to access the printer? Is there a way to do that without an app? Thank you for any help.

    I don't think so because you'll need printer drivers and I don't see them going after the android platform as a whole.

    I bought PrinterShare and it prints fairly well. definitely good for pictures but word docs and pdfs are hit or miss.

    It's not a wi-fi solution, but if you have a bluetooth-enabled printer, you can send a picture from the phone via Share/Bluetooth.

    I was only able to do this once, when I first got my phone. Since then, I can get the two to see each other via bluetooth, but I get an error saying that the printer is rejecting the file the phone is sending.

    If anyone knows how to fix that problem, I hope they post to the forum!

    Thanks for this. I wondered the same thing when I got a wifi printer recently. I will try the app mentioned.
