on models with the 4.2 api yes as they have a filesystem, ie. the pearl and 8800.

do you need a txt file or just somewhere to store offline data? if you just need offline storage look into using the PersistentObject

try something like this:

FileConnection filecon = (FileConnection)Connector.open("file:///SDCard/" + filename);

if(!filecon.exists()) {
filecon.create();
OutputStream out = filecon.openOutputStream();
out.write("mytextString");
out.close();
filecon.close();
}

if you need this in your project send me a pm and i'll email you the source code for this app: link>> txt notes app
