    I have been lurking around this forum for a while now and have enjoyed all the posts about the iPhone. It has been a wealth of info.

    I have one question that i have not seen an answer for yet.

    Is there anyway to print from the iPhone?

    I need to print ms word attachments that are emailed to me and if this is possible it will save me having to lug around a wireless enabled laptop.

    thanks in advance.

    not possible at this point - you'd need to forward the email to a computer with a printer, that's currently the only way

    That's what I thought the answer would be. I did read somewhere that you could print pictures straight from the iPhone so I thought there was a glimmer of hope for printing docs. What do you think the chances are that this will be enabled in a future update. I do realize that there are a lot of things that are higher on Apples "need to fix" list than this.

    If you have an unlocked iPhone someone might be able to get it to pront via Bluetooth. I know Nokia smartphones have that PictShare (or whatever it's called) thing which is the standard for printing via Bluetooth, I'll bet it's not too hard to put it on the iPhone.

    Since you can hook it up to your Airport at home, then, theoretically, yes. If someone creates an app with a print function.

    I miss being able to print through Bluetooth. My old Nokia had this feature long ago.
