USB cable

When you use a USB cable to connect your device to your computer, you can access all of the features in BlackBerry Link. Certain actions, such as updating your device software and backing up and restoring device data, can only be completed when you connect your device to your computer using a USB cable.

Wi-Fi network

When your device is connected to the sme Wi-Fi network as your computer, and your device is also connected to a power source (such as an electrical outlet or a computer), you can sync your music, pictures, videos, and documents. For information about how to connect your device to a Wi-Fi network, tap the Help app on the home screen of your device.
