Question Local text files xfer on BB 7730 and BB 7290

Please Login to Remove!

Transferring files locally via USB to use the BB as a very simple PDA:
I'd like to connect the BB 7730 model (or the BB 7290) to my PC in the morning, download a (ASCII, text) file of notes, add/edit on this file during the day, return it updated to my PC in the evening. In other words, use the BB as a PDA during the day, in a very simple form. The key here is, being able to shuffle that file back & forth using a USB cable. (Not interested in Outlook, etc.; only text files).
Does the BB desktop manager allow that and is it included in the OS on both the BB 7290 and the BB 7730? Does it xfer text files transparently, or is there a conversion needed to use it in the Memo application on the Blackberry? Any other text-editing application on the BB?
I only want to use the phone on the BB using cheap T-Mobilep-to-go service, like a regular cellphone, without web access, so I'm only interested in local, USB cable connectivity with the PC.
