    Does WP 8.1 finally allow file types beyond photos and docs to be downloaded? A real world example for me deals with AutoCAD drawings when I am at remote job sites. Thanks to Verizon, I can generally count on having at least 3G available at these jobsites. Back in my Windows Mobile 6.5 days using the HTC TouchPro2, I could download AutoCAD .DWG drawings and save them to my phone. From there I could transfer them with a USB cable or via Bluetooth, edit them, copy back to my phone, and e-mail revisions. WP7 and WP8 eliminated that ability. Please note, I understand that I could pay to use my phone as a mobile hotspot, I just don't want to give Verizon any MORE money.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    WP 8.1 now has a native downloads folder, so files with unrecognized extensions would go to the downloads folder. We do not know exactly how the functionality would work, but it may the way you are describing it.

    Speaking of emails, I hope they've added the ability to inline edit emails for replies and forwards.
