Default Playlist Support on Curve?

Please Login to Remove!

Blackberry.com features tab on the 8300 regarding the "next generation media player" says "enjoy your favorite playlists". I have a new 8300, but don't see how to get a playlist onto my device.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.....Jeff.

Playlists are supposed to be supported in the new 4.3 OS release.

Here are some screenshots that show the playlist option:

You have to import the music into the device and set up the playlist from the BB. Please note that the feature is not available in the current OS. It's available on the 4.3.

You can do playlists without the 4.3 OS. Here's what I did:
- I cleared my library on Media Monkey (Winamp will work too)
- Next I connected my BB in mass storage mode to my PC then added all the songs from my BB's memory card to my library in Media Monkey
- Then I created a new playlist and added whatever songs I wanted to it and saved the playlist .m3u file to the music folder.
- Now when I open the Music player on the 8300 I have a listing for playlists exactly like the screenshots from the 4.3 thread. When I select "playlists" it shows me the playlist name. I select that and it shows all the songs in the playlist.
Hopefully that makes some sense.

Cool! So basically the current OS already supports .m3u playlists? Do they have to be in a certain folder on the storage card?

I'm using the old O2 OS so I would assume any OS that came after that would support this as well.
I keep songs in the Music folder, and then each Artist has its own folder.

How does one obtain the 4.3 OS? (I'm on AT&T and it doesn't seem to be available on their download site.)

I tried creating a playlist using Windows Media Player and I am able to create one and save it to my card on my BB and it shows up, but when I open the playlist it says there are no songs in it...
