The FileScout Dropbox Plugin

General

You need a FileScout RegistrationCode in order to connect to your Dropbox account. The Plugin will not work for the free FileScout Lite Version. There is no need to have anything additionally installed on your BlackBerry®.
WARNING: The FileScout Dropbox Plugin has the potential to transfer extremely large volumes of data using your carrier's network. Please be aware that this could result in large overage charges over the course of a month if you do not have an unlimited data plan. Regardless of your data plan, please consider configuring FileScout to use WiFi (FileScout Options/General Options/Preferred Network set to either Auto or WiFi) whenever available as an alternate to using your carrier's network.
