Re: transfer photos

Hey ,

 

In order to get the pictures on to the BlackBerry PlayBook from your BlackBErry smartphone you would need to copy the pictures to your computer from your BlackBerry then connect your PlayBook and copy the pictures from your computer to the PlayBook. 

 

Hope this helps.

Re: transfer photos

Hi, if you want to transfer files (photos) from your blackberry device, then you can simply get the File Browser App by Aftab. This should allow you to access the sd card of your phone via the PlayBook. It works like magic for me (I have a Bold 9780).

Re: transfer photos

It's unbelievable that we have to pay for transferring a picture or a song from our phone to the playbook. That kind of things should be easy and friendly and, by the way, FREE! ! !
