Hi All Again

I'm playing and getting to know my 8700C. I notice some pictures <jpgs> that are sent to me on my mycingular.blackberry address I'm unable to view. Yet, I was able to view other pics. All were sent to me taken by my husbands Razr. To the view the pics I was unable to view at that addressd I forwarded them to my gmail account.

Is there something I'm doing wrong not being able to view these graphics?

Also, does anyone have a favorite tool to edit MP3's to be used as ringtones?

Also, since I've already asked 2 dumb questions, I might as well go all the way with 3. What do the pin numbers attached to other addresses mean. Is that an individual business? Or do we all have a pin #?

We all have a PIN number. If you use PIN to send an e-mail to another BlackBerry's PIN number, you get a "D" in the checkmark when it's delivered.

Can only really help out with the question i quoted from you. To edit mp3s a very easy and free program to use is mptrim at mptrim.com. You can edit them using that app and then host it on ripway.com. I have used these to put many ringtones on my phone and it has worked flawlessly.

All Blackberry's have a PIN. You do too. Go to Options --> Status for yours.
It's a way to send a message directly to another BB.

are the only advantages that you get a "D" when it is delivered?

PIN messages are device to device. They are not sent through your e-mail client or server. That means that if you have any sensitive data that you don't want to send over your e-mail because it might be exposed then you can use your PIN. From my understanding it works a bit better than SMS as well since it provides more funcionality. Finally, the little D stands for delivered so you can be sure that when you send a PIN that the person has received the information so they don't have an excuse to not act on the message that you have sent.

The old BlackBerry 950 had not just a D, but also an R.
Iow, PIN to PIN would show you it was delivered...and that is was opened.
I loved that feature, but now it's just a D.
Anyone know why? Anyway we can get that back?
