It was slow sending just two photos, but they did eventually end up on Flickr. The upload seemed to stall many times, just sitting there, giving me a "upload was interrupted error." It tried several times, and eventually completed the task. I was leaving my camera on the entire time. I'm not sure why the interruption, but I figured I will also have to make sure my phone doesn't go to sleep. This all involves a lot of work and battery power on my part. I was hoping when I bought the card, I could just take the photos, and a short time later, they just ended up on Flickr. But it appears I have to walk it through each step and make sure it happens.
Also, I must have gotten 6 text messages on my phone from Eye-Fi along the way. They are cryptic as to why, but each one said something about photos being received, and are being transferred to whatever service you chose. So I wasn't sure if it sends one when it starts to upload, when the phone receives it, and when it starts to upload to Flickr. Each time I wasn't sure if I could shut my camera down now or not. Overall, the process was very clumsy.
