    Dowload an attachment from BB to a laptop?

    Advertisement



    Is it possible to download an attachment from a Blackberry to a computer? I'm going on vacation and won't have access to email. Is there a way to download a spreadsheet to my laptop so I can view it easier?

    Thanks.

    Are you talking about spreadsheets that are currently on your Blackberry? Or having your Blackberry email forwarded to a laptop email?

    Spreadsheets that are currently on your blackberry. I won't be able to read emails except through my bb but wanted to copy a spreadsheet from my blackberry to my laptop to read or edit.

    Check out the eoffice programs from dynoplex:

    http://dynoplex.com/downloads_v40.shtml

    You can get the entire eoffice suite that you can edit and do all that stuff on the BB itself, or get efile so that you can transfer documents back and forth...

    Re: Dowload an attachment from BB to a laptop?

    Is there a cheaper alternative?

    Can I sync my blackberry to outlook even if my outlook is only available offline? Will the sync mess up what's in my outlook currently (will it override what's in there?) I hope I'm explaining this ok....if my laptop isn't wired so my outlook is currently available to receive my new messages, can I sync my blackberry to my outlook and then open the attachments through my outlook?

    Good question...I would assume that you could, however I don't sync anything with my computers email (I use Thunderbird and haven't been able to get it to work yet).

    I believe that the Efile program is free?

    Another option you could do, depending on how quick and how many steps you want to make, would be to use your BB as a modem...Then whenever an email came to your Blackberry, you could forward it to the email address that is on your Laptop and it would deliver it through there...Don't know how many steps you want to take though...

    How do you make it a modem? is there a forum that discusses this?

    Have you used Efile program before?

    I currently use Efile and I like it...I haven't had any problems with it what so ever...

    As far as the modem, it depends on which carrier is the way you set it up...let me find out how exactly you do it with Cingular...Supposedly you will need to get an add on feature that allows you to teather on your plan, but lets see if there is a way around that, because if you don't utilize it that often, then it probably wouldn't be worth it to add it on...

    Let me finish some paperwork that I have to do and I will see what we can do...

    In the meantime, what version of Desktop Manager do you have? Do you happen to have 4.1.1.12?

    Thanks a bunch. Yes, the efile was free. Will try and see if I can get that to work.

    I'm currently using version 4.1.0.8. Do I need to update the version?

    Re: Dowload an attachment from BB to a laptop?

    The reason I was asking about Desktop Manager was that if you were wanting to set up as a modem, its actually easier and less steps to set up as a modem if you are using the latest version of DM because of some updates that they did...

    I am still doing these files, and I am able to browse between calls (hence me being able to write these responses), but as soon as I get done with them I will be able to dedicate more time to helping you get an answer...

    Just follow the instructions on how to set up efile (going thru the Desktop Manager and extensions and all that) and it should work just fine for you...Let me know how it works for you...

    Hey Keith, you here? I am caught up on work now. If you have time, we can try and get that laptop set up as a modem...

    How did Efile work for ya? You still want to try and set up a modem?

    Gimme a minute because in a fit of boredom I deleted all my certificates off my handheld and want to make sure I didn't screw it up.
