    Remote File Access

    For those who are unaware of this hidden gem. Remote File Access is activated in BB LINK, and on your device - Settings/BlackBerry Link switch on and tick Download Files Over Mobile Network.
    What it does is allow you to connect up to 10 PC's that have Link installed and associated with your BID. From there you can access files on your PC, stream video and music, albeit one track at a time. View and edit documents, and share all files via email, BBM, NFC, or download the file to your device.
    Im so surprised Blackberry have not made a big issue of this feature

    Cool would be an understatement. I just set it up this weekend. I had a comment from an iPhone user this morning who was dissing my Z. He asked what could it do that his iPhone 5 couldn't. Showed him a few things, including transferring a contact via NFC with an S4 user. He wasn't impressed. Then, I showed him how I could access all of my PC files from it... The Androids user was joyfully impressed. The iPhone user walked away scowling...

    I am curious. Could this work with more that one computer on the same network?

    I thinks so, but only if the target storage location was mapped as a drive to the PC with Link installed on it. And both would have to be left on, of course.

    I'll try to remember to try it when I get back to town.
