    I believe the answer to that question is "NO". That would involve Wi-Fi if i am correct. If you are at home, just download or view what you want to look at on your computer. You can then use the download manager to transfer anything you want to the phone.

    someone correct me if i am wrong. Thanks

    For now no device can use wifi but the 8800 that comes soon will have it
    there's suppose to be 2 versions with or without camera and it will be a qwerty device

    Hopw this helps
    I'm french canadian so I can also help you in french, just PM me
    UNLESS it is for a BETA OS, it's at your own risk and I won't support it

    Yes, Wi-Fi would allow for this... but BB pearl does not come equipped with Wi-Fi. Maybe in the future ?

    The question was when the device is attached to your computer. The only phone devices that allow you to access your internet through you pc are the smartphone devices like Blackjack, Cingulars 3135 or any device that uses Microsoft's Mobile5 when conected to Activesync it uses the broad band PC's conection. Another solution is to have blutooth router or have a laptop with a blutooth card and enable shared internet conection. Have not tried it but it's a thought.

    Do you have a limited BB data plan? Mine is unlimited so i use it with no worries. I think it would be cool to take a BB without a data plan and connect to wifi.

    Yeah you need wifi which would improve the pearl but the 8800 is going to be a cool device just too big for me. I like the size of the pearl. Get a notebook to use your wifi.
