Storing text files on your SD Card.

Made an interesting discovery today.


I created  a folder on the sd card and called it data. Call it what you like. In it, I placed a .rtf file.


I  attached the .rtf file and sent an email to myself. I then opened the attachment and read the text file on my berry.


An easy way have to manuals, help files, lists or whatever on your berry without using the internal memory.

Re: Storing text files on your SD Card.

hello, I don't understand, can you provide more information ?
From what I know, when you send the email, the two messages (the one sent to you and the one received by you) have to include entirely the atachment. Meaning you'reusing the internal memory (Options >> Status >> Database sizes). what's the point ?

Are you talking about BES or BIS ?
