I have an iPhone 5s, an old laptop running Windows XP a Tesco Hudl, and a Samsung Galaxy 3. How can i easily move files and photos to and from the iPhone without using my limited data allowance?

The only version of iTunes I found to download will not run on Windows XP. The iPhone Bluetooth will not talk to the Samsung Bluetooth or the Hudl.

Is there a way of doing it using the Wi-Fi bearing in mind I rarely have access to a separate Wi-Fi network/router?

The phone signal is usually very poor. The USB stick that works in the Hudl, the Samsung and the laptop will not work in the iPhone even with an adaptor. I have taken to calling it the idiot phone.

  • I don't know much about the Galaxy 3 or the Hudl, but couldn't you use an cloud storage service like Dropbox or OneDrive to centralize all your data then pull it down using the same client for iOS (iPhone)? – Allan Aug 23 '16 at 10:22
  • That would kind of blow the "limited data allowance" part;-) – Tetsujin Aug 23 '16 at 10:46

You can get photos from the phone using Windows Photo Gallery - assuming you can still find a version that will run on XP.
To the phone will require you to find an equally ageing iTunes.

Your problem really isn't the iPhone, it's still being on a version of Windows that hasn't been supported in years.
