Is it possible to copy my Gedcom - tree from Ancestry website - over to this site with my iPhone?

I don't think it is possible at the moment in time to do as you propose. I've just tried downloading a tree off ancestry but cannot get on to the tree setting page to initiate the GEDCOM to try and download it. So I've been stumped at the first hurdle.
