How do I hook up my Iphone to the printer. Do I have to use a blue tooth or can I use my charger/usb connector? I just got my selphy yesterday!! Thanks again.

You can only print from your iPhone on the Selphy cp900.

The manual said that you can. You have to use a canon bu-30 Bluetooth dongle.

Well maybe I'm wrong then. I was told you couldn't. From what I understand this is why everyone is upgrading to the cp900.

You can print from your Iphone but you need to purchase the blue tooth unit (BU30) from Canon. Did you buy that?

He can be yours too. Just ask. MT7:8

Did a little quick research and found this ...

I'm sorry you were mis-informed. The iPhone simply doesn't support this kind of printing. It does not support printing from the device through bluetooth, with any bluetooth device.

From this site: Printing from iphone to CP800

I would look further if you are planning to get a bluetooth dongle. Maybe also check the Apple community boards.

If you have a Mac computer, there is a program called Printopia that will allow you to print from any iDevice to the printer connected to the Mac computer. I used it successfully with my CP800 and other non-wireless printers.
