Default Forward Locked

Please Login to Remove!

I had a text sent to me today that had a great pic attached to it so I wanted to save it and transfer it to my PC. Now that I am trying to do this the phone will not allow me to transfer, e-mail, or MMS this pic. I found that it was locked in the "properties" of the pic. No encryption is set on my phone. Nor is passwords either.

can anyone help me how to remove forward locked

Default Re: Forward Locked

One issue is DRM. You indicated it was a picture you were trying to forward.
Email, SMS, MMS with any content that indicates DRM is "locked"
This is not a blackberry issue. Many different electronic devices now implement DRM.

This may help.

BlackBerry smartphones are capable of supporting Open Mobile Alliancexxx8482; (OMA) Digital Rights Management (DRM) 1.0 forward locked content, as per the OMA specifications. This type of DRM content is delivered using Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) or Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) methods.

When OMA DRM 1.0 forward locked content is displayed in the BlackBerry® Browser, the BlackBerry smartphone user can save or view a full image within the inline content similar to the way non-DRM inline content is displayed.

When the content is linked directly and not displayed inline, the BlackBerry smartphone user receives a message indicating that the content can only be saved. If the BlackBerry smartphone user clicks the Cancel button or presses the Escape key while this message is displayed, the content is opened automatically. The BlackBerry smartphone user can save the content after it has been opened.
If someone helps, tell them by clicking the Thanks buttonî

If you can display the picture on your BlackBerry, you might try do an screenshot with CaptureIt or ZonaSnap and then sending that picture to your computer.
