My elderly mother lives in Arizona with her husband, in a remote area near Yuma, where they do have reliable cell signals, but no internet. I would like to buy her a digital photo frame that I can upload photos to remotely, but would need it to be a photo frame that can connect via cellular service. Is there such an animal? She does have a smart phone (an iPhone), but is barely able to understand and use it, so an app that links her phone to the frame wouldn’t be ideal. I doubt I could walk her through installing and using such an app anyway (I’m in Montana, and have no iPhone skills).
Thanks for the reply! I looked at the Starlink option and wow – that’s expensive. So no-go on that, unfortunately. I looked at kiosk mode with a tablet, and it looks like that might be too challenging. How about this – back to the digital picture frame and maybe linking it to a cell phone app for her iPhone – is there an app for iPhone where I could send pictures to her phone (that she would receive via cellular signal) that would automatically transfer over to a digital picture frame using bluetooth or direct transfer of some sort? Maybe I could connect to her iPhone using teamviewer or a similar app to set up the app for her?
