CJM, thanks, we must have posted at the same time. I'm gonna give it a try. I have Astro already so will try that file manager.
CJM. I figured it out thanks to your help. Kinda a pain though. Way to many steps. Don't think the wife will be able to figure it out. We need something that will just do it for you. looking more into Vaulty.
Vaulty works well with one exception. If you go into files and then open the dcim folder you can still view the Vaulty photos without entering a password. Not too easy to find if you don't know your way around the phone but they are still there.
DO NOT use this method any more. Astro has a known bug right now that will cause all the files you put in that folder to be deleted. Unfortunately this happened with the last upgrade.
