Can I move/copy the wallet from my PC via USB transfer to the Android Phone?

When I'm away somewhere, I want to somehow continue to receive or send bitcoins. I can't bring the PC with me lol.

That isn't currently supported. In theory it could be possible by copying a wallet from a PC bitcoinj based wallet app, but MultiBit forked the format and Hive is Mac only. Also, these apps aren't currently designed to synchronise wallets between multiple apps ... once we finish HD wallets support this will get easier and you might start to see it being better supported.

The short answer is: Don't share your wallet between devices. Use different wallets instead and move Bitcoins between them. Just like you would do with traditional wallets for daily spending vs. bank accounts for savings.

That would be workable, if the wallets did not have problems which prevent you from sending your funds.  When Bitcoin Wallet will not allow me to send, I have to import my keys into my desktop.

It's rather absurd in general.  The data is in the blockchain.  Why do I have to have access to a particular device in order to use my keys?  That is a usability defect which, in practice, is causing people to lose access to their funds.



Give a man a fish and he eats for a day.  Give a man a Poisson distribution and he eats at random times independent of one another, at a constant known rate.

That would be a bug that needs to be fixed. Are you using the latest version?

this is great advice how to solve the problem but I agree with aminorex - that is inconvenient to have an access to your wallet only from particular device , that should be possible from different devices to get access to your wallet

Bitcoin rules!

If it is possible to make such transfers it would be maximally convenient
