Greetings to the forum! OK, this is driving me crazy, as supposedly it should be a simple operation--

I'll be on a road trip with my 4G iPhone and a PC running XP. In the car, I would like to transfer any PPT email attachments I receive on my iPhone to my PC via a USB cable (no wifi) in order to work on them, and then transfer them back to the iPhone and email them.

Is this possible? What is the easiest way to to it? On my old Android it was a breeze, but on the 4 it's driving me nuts. Thanks! ps, I'm not jailbroken

I'm sure there are other ways, but the only way I know of is through an app. So:

1) install an app like good reader or docs to go
2) in your email while looking at the PPT do the little box icon to "send to" the app
3) save the file in that app
4) launch iTunes
5) on the app tab under the application you're using (at the bottom of he page) you can copy the PPT to your hard drive.

Drink two shots and reverse the process to send.

Santa, you are a lifesaver, I'd buy you 2 shots for that help--thanks!
