Questions about Canon Pixma MX492

User Avatar
I don't have wifi or dsl or satellite internet at home. We only have internet on our phones. I want to be able to print things off of my phone occasionally. Which printer will work well for me? Would I have to save anything I want to print and then Bluetooth it? Would a wireless printer have any benefit? Which budget printer is the best fit?

I was just told by technician that my 6830 is not up to date and my printhead issue cannot be solved so they are sending me a 4650 model. Am I getting a better version or just more trouble?
