Choose a webcam/cell phone software (see Resource 1 and 2). These programs allow your cell phone to communicate via Bluetooth and effectively act as a webcam.
Download the software and install it by double-clicking on the file and following the instructions.
Open up the application on your computer and click on "Connection." Select "Bluetooth" or "USB." This will connect your laptop to your cell phone. Choose the option that you have available to you.
Connect your phone via Bluetooth by going to your "Menu" and clicking on "Add Bluetooth Device." If you don't have a Bluetooth phone, you will need a USB cable to connect your phone with your computer. Once they are connected, you will see a picture on your computer screen coming from your camera.
