I understand the idea of carrying a thumb drive, with DM and your backup files on it, such that if you needed to reload the BB from a backup, and had access to a computer, it could be done. And I gather this works even if there were no BB service in the area. HOWEVER, if you have no access to a USB port on a computer, I assume there is no way to restore anything- correct? Ie there is no device that can connect directly to the BB itself - correct???
I am not as much concerned when I am 'in town' have access to my home/work PCs, backups, etc.....but would like to reduce risk while travelling (where I may not have access to a computer). In those cases, the thumb drive is a good idea I suppose, as long as one can get access to the USB port of someone elses computer - not always that easy...
