If the Podcast app could let me play files that I get through methods other than by letting the Podcast app manage the download, then that would be a good solution as well.
Is both the podcasts and music used on the blackberry stored on the device itself or being pulled from the internet?
I figured the podcasts are pulled from the internet and are downloaded on as "as needed" or "as playing" basis? While your music is on your device?
That being said, I theorize that since you have data encryption on, the music files saved on your device are encrypted upon lock (thus losing it's position on the player application), while your Podcasts are on an as needed basis so it will only download the portions it's currently using (like if you watch a YouTube video on your Browser and close it during playback, when you go back to your browser the playback is still there).
Take that with a grain of salt, I'm just guessing and theorizing here.
