Default Does Pearl have a 'viewer'? and how do you move files?

Please Login to Remove!

1) Is there anyway to view .doc files or other word documents on the 8100? 2) Also, if i want to move an .mp3 song from 'ringtones' to 'music' folder..is this possible?

Thanks!

Hi,
1) Yes. Dynoplex eWord allows you to do this and also to edit the file and save it, email, check spelling. 2) eFile which works like Windows explorer with BB memory, either flash or memory card, should do this - copy/paste files. These applcations are at www.dynoplex.com

1) No add-in is needed as long as you have the Attachment service and the file is attached to an email, you can VIEW it (as long as the source email is still in your Inbox). You can NOT view .DOC files that you simply copy to an SD card (or the device for that matter). That does require a third party app as indicated above. The Attachment service is available in all versions of the OS as far as I know.

2) Yes. On the BlackBerry, you can simply highlight the file and select Move. Then navigate to the folder you want to put it in, hit the Menu button and select Move Here. It's a bit clunky, but it works. You can also do this with Desktop Manager's Media Manager, or if you set the SD card to connect in Mass Storage Mode when you plug into your computer, the SD card will show up as a Disk Drive in Windows Explorer.

ok..great. Did it. I was hoping I could copy a .doc file from my comp and view it on my pearl (without having to buy a 60 dollar eWord product). Anyway..now I know!

Thanks a lot.
