Default Links Not Recognized in Email

Please Login to Remove!

A day ago, when I received emails on my BlackBerry 8703e, I could scroll down and click a link in the message. It was blue and underlined. Now, for some strange reason... it's just plain text. The links are still in the http://www.thingadoodle.com/folder/folder/page.htm format, they're not embedded, and they never were.

I want to click on links in my emails, but now I can't! I've searched and searched for some setting or filter or something. Nobody else seems to have this problem. The official BB help says, "Links in messages are recognized automatically." I have the Gmail software (separate) installed, and it handles the links just fine. Am I missing something painfully obvious?

It's probably unrelated, but I did hook my BB up to my laptop via USB and delete all my messages once. The email links stopped being recognized some time after that.

I still haven't found a solution. I wonder if it has to do with the upgrade to BIS 2.3? I honestly have no idea whether that would affect links in emails. Are you still able to click hyperlinks in plain text messages?

Well, the problem magically fixed itself. I suspect the problem was Verizon, perhaps the upgrade to the new BIS version had a bug. Anyway, thanks for your help everyone.

I had this happen to me as well a few months ago on my 8703e, and just like with you it righted itself after some point. I may have been a verizon issue b/c the only links I would get on my device were the vzwpix.com SMS mesaages and they stopped being clickable.
