iPhone is the most popular phone on Flickr
Statistic published by Flickr reveals that most of the snapshots on their website have been taken and shared over the service using the iPhone. The handset seems to have outpaced other high-end cell phones like the Nokia N95 and digital cameras such as the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi and Nikon D80. As hard to believe as it is, there is a logical explanation here. First, all iPhone models count as one and the same device. Second, the Apple´s handset is incredibly functional when it comes to uploading content on Flickr directly. Given the unfaltering popularity of the iPhone in the US and the fact that most registered users are located there, the statistics seems credible indeed. It appears the option to instantaneously share snapshots taken with cell phones is more appealing than the other, i.e. waiting until later to publish professionally looking content captured with digital cameras. We just hope the next iPhone sports a better camera.

I am thinking you forgot the main reason why iphone users upload their pictures so much... No other option. It's not like they can just send the picutre to a friend cuz AT&T won't support it. They have no choice but to upload it to a site like flickr

there's no connection at all. I don't really see how uplodading files to flickr is a substitute for MMS. how can not having the option to send a picture from one phone to another cause someone to want to store their pictures online straight from their phone? When the iPhone gets MMS, the same people who were uploading their files online will continue to do so. That's like saying when the iPhone gets MMS the people who upload to YouTube won't do that anymore because they will be able to send videos.
