Default Maximum attachment size

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB Bold and I have discovered that I cannot download attachment of the e-mails over 2,9 MB. If the attachment is bigger than 2,9 MB it appears a message saying that the attachment is too big.
Is there any way I can modify this?

Nope, that is the attachment size limit, there is not a setting to change.

I heard that was the limit using the BB browser.
People are saying they use mini opra or download it to your media card.
My bold is on the way so I can not test this out.

I can understend a limit for the attachments while using the data plan but as long as I'm connected to my home wireless network I should be able to download bigger attachments.

Attachment size is a combination of a RIM and a Carrier limit due to available bandwidth. Nothing one can do about it AFAIK.
