    Hi,

    Is it possible to download an attachment say Word Doc from IE and then download it somewhere on my Win 7 phone? I can see the attachment, but does not make sense for me to redownload each time i want to view the file. Any ideas?

    I'm going off memory here, but once you view an attachment, there should be ellipses at the bottom right corner, that will reveal extra options when tapped. If not, then try a long tap anywhere on the screen, while viewing the attachment. Most times, you can get more options that way. Similar to a right-click on a PC.

    If i register a email account on my phone, then yes i can save the picture, etc. I think this might be a limitation of Gmail Mobile. I will need to look into that definitely, thanks again!

    I am just wondering if i save a document or picture, where does these files go to as i can't specify where to save them to?

    Pictures will be stored under Pictures Hub and documents will be stored under Office Hub.
