Default 9300 3g tuneTransfer

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all. I am trying to transfer a few songs to my phone, however i have no memory card and wont have one till Monday. I have been advised against filling your internal memory up as it can effect performance. But I only want one or two songs on till Monday to keep me going... I have around 150mb free so that's no problem, however when trying to transfer, the desktop manager thing says there is a limit of around 2.6mb... for some reason. How can I get around this please.

Thanks in advance

It is best to use a memory card but with limits and removal after you get the memory card you should be ok if the music is less than the 2.6 mb shown. The limit is as any computer based device. Without room to move data around when operating the device will lock up.

why dont you sing to yourself until Monday.

Media manager will not allow a file larger that 2.86mb. You have no other option except to use a memory card.

The BlackBerry smartphone memory has a file size limit of 2.86MB. Files larger than this limit cannot be transferred to the BlackBerry smartphone.

Itxxx8217;s not a Con, The processor needs space to move data around. Every computer has a swap space. All their doing is protecting that space.
