    hi,

    To print from your phone you will need a printer with something called AirPrint. This is a special wireless protocol and therefore a printer may have wifi but not AirPrint so won't work with your iphone.

    You are best looking at a HP printer probably. We have the 5510 which is an all in one, wifi, scanner,printer etc, which you can also send an email to and it prints off the email and any attachments which is kinda cool.

    Hp website had the 5520 with dual side printing for £69. However, sometimes worth checking pc world or currys as they sometimes do promo like free ink or paper with a new printer.

    You don't need AirPrint, that's one of those not-widely-supported Apple protocols that they come up with on a regular basis but always fail to win over the industry with.

    I use this app:

    itunes.apple.com/gb/…t=8

    to print using my Dell printer. There are similar apps available for other manufacturers, and I'm sure there's some highly-rated generic apps too if your manufacturer doesn't have one specifically for their printers.

    The printer doesn't need to be wireless, either. As long as it's connected to your LAN and you connect your phone using WiFi you are fine.

    I have a hp 3050a printer which was very cheap. I can easily print things using my iphone and a free app. There is a hp app available too,I have downloaded it but haven't tried it out yet

    Cheers all

    With the HP printers you can't always buy cheap compatible cartridges and the colours on the printers I've looked at are combined so you would have to replace the colour cartridge if one of the 3 colours has ran out.

    That's great thank you I ran out of ink a couple of weeks ago so that's ideal

    No problem xxx

    i have an epson wireless printer,the clone inks are dirt cheap and the print app is free, you can also print from anywhere in the world by sending an email to the printer

    I have an Epson wireless printer XP710 and love it - and the compatible inks are cheap and work well

    I use a HP 5520 all in one wireless printer. Never had any problems. I used to buy Epson's and use cheap compatible ink, but the ink jets kept clogging. I only use originals in my HP ( approx £20 for all four cartridges) and haven't had a problem. I'm sure I paid around £50 for the printer. I would definitely recommend a HP ( and the 5520 is an air printer so no fiddling with apps etc).

    HP printers are good but the one I owned was too expensive for me to run as I could only use original ink cartridges in it. I have never had a problem with the epson and compatibles clogging the jets.
