Tethering - using mail in the air

When in flighmode the bluetooth connection to the 'bridge' application is disabled severing the link to the email on the handset. Does anyone know if you can link the playbook the the handset using a micro usb to micro usb connection so that I can do mail in the air?

Thanks,

Craig

Nope, you can't use a cable to access mail that way.

Re: Tethering - using mail in the air

Ok, thanks Wolf.Although I can't think of one...... are you aware of any other way in which you can access your mail using the playbook without the bluetooth connection to the handset? My specific problem is that I want to access and use my mail on the playbook whilst in the air. Thanks.

Re: Tethering - using mail in the air

I'm wondering if you could setup the email account directly on the playbook and manage your messages in the air. Once the playbook is back online, the messages should sync up to what's on the handheld. Interesting question.
