    Okay, I searched the posts...all are more than a year old, so here's the deal. I download DocumentsToGo from the app market. After a while I decided to buy the full version. Had trouble with the developer's web page on my Atrix, so I used my computer and paid for the unlock code. Unlock code was sent to me as a file--an attachment to an email. Which I now can't open on my phone since it came from an untrusted source. The developer isn't much help--I explained the problem and they responded by sending me another email with another attachment--which I can't open. Any help?

    Google - "Sideload Wonder Machine" from Android central. Find the version for your PC operating system (Windows, Mac or Linux).

    The page there will give you the link to download the right tool, and give you instructions on how to enable Debug mode and "Sideload" this onto your phone without having to Root it.

    Your choices are either to root your phone, which enables sideloading...or use the Sideload Wonder Machine that was mentioned above me. AT&T has the Atrix locked down from installing non-market apps.
