Default 3G + MP3s

Please Login to Remove!

I am big fan of podcasts. On my laptop I can click on a podcast link and pull up the mp3 file directly.

Question- will I be able to do this on either the new 3G BOLD or on the 3G iPhone?

Your collective wisdom is tremendous. Thank you for it!

You can download mp3s directly over EDGE, WiFi, or EvDO. The limit is usually around 3mb. This may/may not change with 3G

I believe this is what I'm asking- most of the podcasts that I listen to are probably over 5mb.

Thank you Sith!

If you are on a BES this can be changed to up to 10mb. BIS is up to the carrier, so its kind of hit or miss. It is likely with the iPhone2 out and that 3G that ATT will open it up.
