Printing From Blackberry Through PC?
Is there a way to print things that are stored on my blackberry through my PC using a printer that is hooked up to my PC? Like say I had my blackberry hooked up to my computer through the USB would I be able to go through the desktop manager or something to print?

well if you have a dataplan just email it to your email account accesible on the computer and print from there. i dont think there is any other way.

So you actually have to buy a special printer for a blackberry to be able to print anything from it?

If you have eOffice; within the eFile program you can apperently add a printer. This however will not print via your usb cable; it will do it OTA. I also belive you need BES along with whatever server software eOffice uses inorder to add a network printer.

I've tryed to add a printer here, but its always failed... So I dunno; it supports it but I can't get it to do anything.

I saw a faxing solution once. Eg, forward the email with attachment to "aroc_<you_specify_fax_number_at_client's_office>@" and the attachment will print at the fax machine you specify. I saw a school or a gov't office with a setup like that once.

Take a look at ActivePrint x5. Great service for printing. Has option to store if you send it to print and your computer is not on.

P.S. they have great customer service
