You need a wifi enabled memory card.

An eye-fi card will allow you to send pics from the camera to your phone, but that is it.

In order to view the camera screen you need a device with hdmi in port. If your phone has an hdmi port it is most likely hdmi out.

Something like this: : Lilliput 7-inch LCD monitor with HDMI, YPbPr interface, dedicated high-definition video camera : Vehicle Headrest Video : Car Electronics might work. Just an example, make sure it works before buying.

On the k-3 you can get a FLU card which allow you to view the camera screen wirelessly on some devices. But I don not think that it will work on the k-30

Jatrax is right: you need a camera that supports the flucard. Whatever replaces the K-50 should have that feature
