Blackberry Help 1: Text file to MemoPad

Number 1 in this series of Blackberry How To**

How to get text files into your MemoPad when Sync doesn't work with Outlook 2010 and avoid having to retype...
  1. Turn Mass Storage Mode Support: On (Settings → Media Card)
  2. Connect your Blackberry via USB to your PC (Passwords etc)
  3. Copy the text files to your media card and disconnect when finished
  4. Open Media then Menu → Explore
  5. Select the text file - filename.txt
  6. Menu → Select Mode
  7. Menu → Select. Highlight the required text
  8. Menu → Copy
  9. Close Media
  10. Open MemoPad
  11. Menu → New
  12. Menu → Paste

Convoluted, but it works...

** More as a memory jogger for myself rather than for any greater noble purpose.

That is nice of you to show people how to do it.

It's be great if all these different products were standardized so they were simple to synch up. Yeah, I daydream a lot!

Hope that you are having a good week, YW:)
