What is "waiting for faster network" message in Dropbox camera uploads?

Dropbox camera upload feature is a handy and useful feature when it comes to uploading your phone or SD cards photos automatically. Sometimes while working around with Dropbox camera upload feature, you may encounter a message that reads "waiting for faster network". There are three possibilities why you may see this message. 


Camera uploads display the "waiting for a faster network" message when your device is:
  • Waiting for a 3G or faster connection (4G, WiFi, etc.)

  1. Open the Dropbox app.
  2. Tap Recents.
  3. Tap the gear icon.

Dave testimonial PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant. - Dave
