Simple way to copy files from BlackBerry phone to Playbook?

Hello again,

 

If I open a picture through my phone on my Playbook, I should be able to save it then on the tablet, right? But it seems it's not possible. I have to send it or copy it with the file manager. Or am I missing something?

This goes for other kind of files too.

 

Thanx for your answer :smileyhappy:

If your smartphone is connected to a BlackBerry Enterprise server then you cannot save that content to your PlayBook.

Is there a way to transfer files from phone to tablet or vice versa?

Hello,

 

Nope, my phone is not conneted to an Enterprise solution. I have pictures on my phone, I open them through the bridge on my Playbook, but I cannot then save them on the Playbook, no option available.

There's currently not a method to transfer files.

Right you can only open on for viewing purposes.  Suggest approach is to send yourself the file.

For viewing purposes only is not very convincing.

 

Additionally, I cannot scroll between picture from my phone on the PB.

Something needs to be done please!
