It wouldn't make sense for your phone to be part of a P2P network. It's only connected to your radio tower, and not really anything else.

Also, you could define a maximum file limit size, and at that point your phone would be considered backed up, and then if no other route is found, the transfer is cancelled after a certain timeout.

That is only a software bug.


I’ve been thinking about a Pi Zero W w LoRa acting as a wifi bridge between the smartphone and the Pi and the Pi uses LoRa for the P2P portion.


Well, these days a lot of phones are part of P2P networks such as BitTorrent, so that's not a blocker.
