Do you have to have a phone that can take pictures to do a remote deposit?

I have thought of trying to do an online checking account to get ride of the requirements for our BOA checking in order to avoid a monthly fee, but I have an old fashion pay as you go phone. It does not have internet access. I have an old I pad 1 that does not take pictures. Could it be done by taking a picture and uploading the picture to the computer and sending it through the internet?
