Default Anyone Else Annoyed That You Cant Open Mp3's When They Come In As Attchments?

Please Login to Remove!

Am I the only one who is really pissed that you can play mp3 files but you cant open them if they are emailed to you? has anyone else contacted BB about this? they told me if enough people complain that maybe they will do something in the next upgrade!

It's not pretty, but here's a workaround: (1) forward the email to your gmail account, (2) open the gmail in the web browser (make sure it's the html-version of gmail, not the mobile version), (3) download attachment.

Hope this helps.

mp3 are suppose to work with bis 2.3. If the BIS cant open something it wont even allow you to try to open it. Wav files work fine... I still think that the bis upgrade was partial.....

btw the mp3 need to be under 500kb

No, I really don't mind....its a phone not a real Mp3 Player. Regardless of its capability, I am not likely to take any real pictures, listen to any real music etc.
