How to access, Add, Edit or Delete Files of Android Phone on FTP over WiFi

Recently, I bought a new Android Phone (Samsung Galaxy S i9000) and a regular problem was of sending files from Laptop to Mobile SD card or Internal Memory using USB Data Cable. But now, the pain of attaching a Data cable is relieved because you can access Files on SD card or Internal memory of your Android Phone over WLAN or WiFi.

  1. Many thanks to you for making this site a great one to stay up-to-date with. It seems that I cannot get enough Android-related news lately. I don’t know if it’s because it’s really an exciting time to own an Android phone or I’m heading downhill. Might be a bit of both now that I think about it. Either way, I’ll keep reading what you’re posting, so keep doing a good job of it 😉
