You can also choose how camera uploads work on your phone:
- What to upload: choose if you want to upload photos only, or both photos and videos into the Camera Uploads folder.
- How to upload: choose if camera uploads work when you’re using your data plan, or only on Wi-Fi.
- Use data plan: if you choose to upload using your data plan and Wi-Fi, you can choose if camera uploads use your data plan for all files, or only for files under 25 MB.
