    Can't get there from here! Transferring files

    Posted this same request on the Thrive forum but haven't found a way to get the suggestions to communicate yet.

    I have the AtrixHD and a Toshiba Thrive tablet and am trying to figure out how to communicate between the two easily. I also have AT&T for phone service.

    All I want to do is transfer files between the 2 without having to do the "place phone files on micro SD card, eject and pull the SD card, mount it in an adapter, plug it into the Tablet, transfer the info, eject the SD card, remove it from the adapter, reinstall it in the phone,", or vice-versa to transfer files from the tablet to the phone.

    Any suggestion without having to sign up for tethering for something I may do occasionally? (Don't want to root a week old phone.)

    Thanks for the assists.

    Try Dropbox...

    Drop box syncs files between devices. I use it on all of my phones and my MacBookPro.

    Where do I get info for properly setting up bluetooth so they communicate. Tried the Bluetooth in GooglePlay but couldn't get the phone and tablet to connect. I need "basic" instructions for the beginner. Stuff like "Hit install and apply proper settings" doesn't work on directions. Need step-by-step.

    On your device settings there should be options to turn the Bluetooth on. Once you have it on on both of them, set one to be discovered or visible and do a search with the other one. Once the device sees it click on it and it will ask you if you want to pair with that device. Just click yes or OK. Now you will be able to send files from one device to the other.

    Thanks RobKort

    Had it paired but couldn't find step-by-steps on tranferring. Spent a little time playing with and figured out how it worked regarding selecting file, doing transfer, accepting transfer on HD, then working with the file. Really simple once you get it, and, after making a few more transfers and getting it easy to remember what to do, I'll post back here what I find. Maybe this can help others that get hung up like I did.

    When it comes to "computers" I'm like a 40 watt bulb in a 5 watt outlet!

    Thanks again.

    Similar issue...

    I have an SD card reader that connects to my mini USB. It used to recognize camera photos in the file manager, but now it won't. They show up in the gallery, but I can't copy them to my phone to save them to google+ like I used to before the update. Any suggestions appreciated...
