Hooray for forums...I too
have been trying to solve the apparently unsolvable. I recently got a BB 8700 to keep up with work on the road. (I'm on BIS). One of my needs is to be able to transfer emailed attachments to my laptop (The Cingular guy told me this works 'just fine'). I LOVE the BB but have been driving myself crazy trying to figure out how to transfer attachments to my laptop when I'm not in a wi-fi zone. USB doesn't work so I got a Bluetooth/USB dongle...no joy there either. So, now I KNOW
, it can't be done.. RIM tech support suggested tethering (using BB as modem) ..extra $70/month with Cingular..no thanks! I hate to give up the BB. Is there ANY
device out there that does this?
