Hi

Which song (if you don't mind my asking)

Are you using a service to download tracks or another method?

WiFi or Mobile network download?

That's the problem. All SA carriers are restricting or blocking downloads from BlackBerry devices, though MTN is usually better than Vodacom.

The 9900 should be able to download in the 1-5 Mbps range depending on the network.

Probably not on a South African network... no offense to them. We have networks that slow too in the US, one's called Sprint :P

Agreed. My post was about networks outside of South Africa. Also, the 9900 does not operate on Sprint, so Sprint's 1X EV-DO network wouldn't count.
