Nokia Lumia 900 File Transfer

Does anybody know how to transfer office files into Nokia Lumia 900 directly without going through the Microsoft skydrive / sharepoint. Zune doesn't allow transfer of office documents.

Hi Perdana,

 

Thanks for your question and welcome!

 

You can open Office files on your Lumia Windows Phone by attaching them to a mail and opening these on the phone or copying them to your SkyDrive from where they also can be opened. Also Office 356 files should be available instantly as they are stored in the cloud by default.

You could also try emailing the files to your phone or other dropbox type apps. Office 365 may be worth considering if you ise it regularly. There are other ways which will result in the invalidation of your warranty so not recommended.

If you use Dropbox, you can use BoxFiles. There is a free version and a paid version.

I think the OP is really asking how to transfer document files DIRECTLY from his PC to his phone without going through a Cloud service or emailing to himself. It is not possible with WP7.5.

No.. There is no direct way to transfer 'non-multimedia' files from PC to windows phone.

Exactly this is coming in Windows Phone 8.

Re: Nokia Lumia 900 File Transfer

Thats a pity for this phone - i have confidential information docs that i dont want to be uploaded to microsoft cloud nor over network - thats why needing the direct transfer.

Is there any 3rd party apps that can do this in the market place?

Also, will nokia provide firmware upgrade to windows 8 for this phone.

Not all multimedia files on the PC can be transferred to windows phone via Zune.

As already announced back in June and discussed to death in this very section of the forum - no, it will not.
