    Is it possible to install .apk from the SD card without a file manager?

    Pretty much says it all. Im without a connection or a file browser, but have an app Id like to install it from the SD card.

    Anyone have a solution for this?

    If you have adb, lol. I don't see the purpose here though, filemanagers are numerous, great and free.

    Exactly. Im an overseas contractor and still want to play with my phone. But because of a lack of forsight, I didnt install a file manager before I left. And as we're all aware, DROID, as awesome as it is, isnt a world phone.

    relocated to naz from south florida, teaching heli students in NJ and doing the NYC thing.

    That sucks! Even when I had the pleasure of Deigo Garcia in the NAV, we had wifi

    When you get back we'll hook up.
