I do a pretty darn good Brando godfather impersonation!

Have I ever mentioned way back when I was actually a Theatre major (sets, props & lights) for many years? I have more theatre classes buried in my college transcripts than most people think healthy. (yes, even took makeup and costuming classes...)

Working in computer tech was a complete accident - one day a guy offered me a good paying job, the rest is history.

Hi guys,
There's a notepad application in eFile. It works for me when I need to read a txt file. And it's free.

I have eFile. That notepad is horrible. It's too limited and clumsy. Besides, it freezes the phone in almost every time I try to open any text file with it.

I've commented on that one. It takes too long to open large files and there is no font selection. The one font it uses is arguably ugly and certainly too small/narrow/cramped.

Not really large, it handled files up to approximately 100 kb for me.

Unhappy Help needed for Mobipocket problem

I installed Mobipocket reader on my bb, and I have the 6 beta on the desktop. My ebooks will not trasfer to my memory card. I can transfer by explorer, but MP does not find them.

When I start MR on bb, I get message: "The application mobireader has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT policy."

I contacted bb support, and they assured me that my bb has no IT policy. I purchased it from TMO for my personal use.

I have read most of the relevant posts from various forums, but I am yet to find a solution.

Any and all help with the mobireader problem will be appreciated.

bbman... look at this:
Go to Options > Security > General Settings > scroll to the bottom of the screen, under "services". What is under "services"?

I'm unable to get anything but what appears to be the trial version of eFile Pro.

ePad is there, when you open eFile you may see the icon on the low ribbon. Scroll the TB or the wheel to see it.

If anyone here is still interested in plain text viewers as much as I am, check this page at BerryReview.com

Rove Mobile File Manager is a very interesting application that not only supports FTP transfers (I couldn't make it work at all with my BIS connection), but also has a very nice file manager and it opens plain text files. It is not very good: there are no "features" whatsoever in this text editor other than open, edit and save, and it can't open large txt files. Or maybe it can, but it takes forever. I tried a 450Kb file and ended up doing a battery pull after a few minutes. But, well, it's something for us to get by until we get a decent text viewer/editor - if we ever get one. Provided your text files aren't too big, it's very convenient for reading and/or editing those files in your media card.

This is a limitation of BIS, BIS blocks all ports below 1024, so if you are using BIS you cannot use the standard FTP port 21, you must use a higher port on your FTP server. The other option is if you change your connection method to TCP or BES then FTP will work over the standard port.

That is why we put a warning in the product when you open a file larger than 50kb. The BlackBerry does not have a lot of memory for applications to use, so opening a half a meg text file is not easy on the BlackBerry until the devices get more application memory to use.

Thanks for the reply, Paul. I didn't get any "warning" so far, except sometimes Rove will tell me "No viewer found for selected file type". It happens more often with big text files, but with small files too. They are all plain text files, I'm sure. I wonder if there could be any issue with Unix-style line breaks. That's the only thing that I can think of, although all of my text files are Unix-style text files and most of them are opening correctly.

I passed it on to our developer and he says that's it's probably a bug with unicode or extended ascii characters, since we did notice you are in brazil. We will put it down as a bug we need to look at in the future releases.

I haven't tried your two released products yet, in part because using BIS for Mobile Desktop has been a pain. I suspect the issue is with Sprint and the fact that there is no APN to specify. Anybody having better luck with these products from the Sprint/CDMA side of the world?

And Paul, FYI I'm not griping -- trying to get something to work with all the different flavors out there has to be a royal PITA.

To use Mobile Desktop you can simply set the connection method to "BIS - Internet Browser" under Options, this does not require any kind of APN settings, and should work fine on Sprint assuming you have a BIS Data plan. As well BIS will only work if the computer you are trying to connect to has a public IP address on the internet.

Another option is to use our PCMobilizr product, as it simplifies a lot of the configuration pains people have with Mobile Desktop and is much easier to get up and running with:
PCMobilizr - Access your PC from anywhere

I highly recommend that you contact our support team, and they can ask specific questions about your configuration and they can get you up and running in no time:

Paul,

Thanks for the response -- I wasn't terribly precise.

I have Mobile Desktop working, it is just painfully slow over BIS. Your support staff was quite helpful in getting it working. I think that the issue is the BIS model. I have thought about installing the free BES to get around this issue, but I suspect (haven't researched it completely) that MDS is not enabled on BB Professional.

And I've also considered using PCMobilizr (your announcement of that looked quite good), but I've debated some security-related issues involved in getting an intermediary involved like that requires.

Hopefully that explains why I haven't been pestering your tech support with questions, and also why I'm not completely bent out of shape.

Yes there is, you can use Mobile File Manager to edit plain text files located on your device or on remote servers, it's free too:
