Blackberry Bridge

Is it necessary to have a mobile network connection (e.g.. 3G/Data) for the Bridge APS to work?


I was on the subway this am and tried the bb bridge apps - the software works but there is no data when you look at your calendar or contacts. Mail has headers, but you cant get details.


I assumed all that would be required for the apps to work would be a blue tooth connection - is there another setting or should I try airplane mode?

Re: Blackberry Bridge

No, since the Blackberry itself and through the Bridge requires data to download the email, I suspect that you must have a current connection to view mail and contacts.

I will test it by turning off my mobile network/WiFi on the handheld and see.
