However, you need to be sure that you can download a file from your Smart Phone before you can begin doing this to not become frustrated.

If you use Internet Explorer, you should see a window that comes up on your computer that allows you to browse to a specific site. On Firefox, you should see a particular file that you can select to download. However, if you are looking for one particular file that is not available through any of these browsers, you will need to use a search engine.
