Can I store files on my iPhone like I can on my iPod?

Can I store files on my iPhone like I can on my iPod?

For some reason, the iPod feature which allows you to drag and drop files to and from your iPod is not available on the iPhone. We're not sure why Apple chose to disable this or if they plan to keep it permanently unavailable.

In the meantime, there are a variety of ways to accomplish similar results. The more complicated way is to learn some basic iPhone hacking. Doing a simple search on Google for tips on how to access the iPhone filesystem will yield a bevy of results you'll likely not know what to do with.

The alternative method is using a software package called iPhoneDrive from Ecamm Networks. This is the only program we've found so far that allows easy drag and drop functionality moving files to and from the iPhone. Handy for those who need to move files back and forth between different machines via their iPhone (i.e. home and work), etc. We haven't tested iPhoneDrive, but third party reviews seem to indicate easy and effective use.

iPhone Drive retails for a reasonable $9.95.
