Default Bridge to Where? 9630-Playbook

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 9630 Tour on VZN, no enterprise, just my gmail, and an unopened 32GB Playbook. Having my doubts about keeping it (a) because latest business reports indicate it might be a Betamax and (b) I am not sure Bridge will do what I want.

1. If I am checking my email, and on my tour the email comes up with text plus some trash where images didn't download, if I look at the email on the Playbook, will the images be there?
2. If I have the option to "click here to display images" in the email, will the images display without tether?
3. And, if someone sends me an email with a link in it, when I click the link, will it open the referenced page, or would i need tether for that?

Thanks so much for any info. I hate looking at this box with the tape unbroken, but even at $300.00 I need to be sure I will use it.

Dang it, I asked a compound question. For # 3, did you mean, the link will open with no tether?

You cannot do anything with the bridge email except while bridged. Nothing with regard to email remains on the PlayBook when not bridged.

It should open within the bridged browser.

As Zombie said.

If you click a link in an email, it will open in the Bridge Brower, so "no, you won't" need tether for that.
