Offline work...

I am going to take a plane trip.  I'd like to have my mail with me on the plane - so how do I do that?  If I do nothing, I will get the mail that is on my Bold via the bridge.  But I won't be able to retrieve attachements or press "more" on long notes.  Is there a way to force both of these things (more and attachment download) to be done for the entire inbasket to prepare for offline use?

Re: Offline work...

Hello mecrtp,

 

When the BlackBerry connections are disabled, the Bridge will no longer be accessible. You will be able to view the emails on your BlackBerry device and once mobile network is connected, you can then access the Bridge and the data from your BlackBerry.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Offline work...

I was assuming that if I left Bluetooth on, even though I had no 3g connection to my Bold that the Playbook could work in bridge mode with the Bold.  If this is the case, then my only real issue is that because there is no 3G connection, I couldn't download new attachments and More wouldn't work to see the end of longer emails. 

 

With that in mind, I am asking if there is a way that I can force my blackberry (preferably from the Playbook) to download all attachments and request "More" in a batch mode before I travel instead of note by note (if requested) as it works now.

You cant download all onto the BlackBerry smartphone. BlackBerry Smartphones only keep about 1-4 kilo bytes of info of an email and downloads the rest when needed. If you had a 1 gig mailbox, it would kill the smartphone since it only has about 250 (about) meg of memory that is free. (using my Torch as an example)

Re: Offline work...

The Bridge is an access point to view what your BlackBerry has. When the data is turned off, you will not be able to download attchments or more content from long messages. It will only be a view point to see what your BlackBerry has. You would have to request the desired information individually, as you would have to on your BlackBerry. 

 

Hope this helps.
