    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.

    just google "download astro manager" and find an http link from there... it's freeware, so not illegal

    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.
