The StarLink engineers did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit the other day:

There was a question about mobile:

Mobility options—including moving your Starlink to different service addresses (or places that don't even have addresses!)—is coming once we are able to increase our coverage by launching more satellites & rolling out new software.

On the run-up to the launch last night on the SpaceX Youtube livestream they talked about where the BETA test is now. They showed a place with coverage up in the northwest of the US and how small that spot of coverage is currently. That's why they are only inviting BETA testers with specific locations at this point. They also mentioned that BETA testing in Canada should start in the next couple of weeks.

They expect to have almost blanket coverage of the continental US by the middle of next year. Then they'll start looking at mobile use, maybe.

Sometimes pictures taken with phones, maybe other cameras, I don't remember will load sideways.
If you have photo editing software, resizing the photo and saving it will correct the problem. I don't remember the technical details, but it works.
