Question wav Attachments

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All,

I did a search looking to see if my 7100 would support the playback of .wav files sent to my email. The only thing I found was an Aug 2004 thread re: a different BlackBerry model that said it didnt support .wav.

Does anyone know, can the 7100 (with or withour 3rd party software) can support playback of .wav files?

In case your wondering, I ask because my VOIP service sends emails to my Berry with VoiceMails as .wav files.

Thanks in advance if anyone has some additional wisdom on the subject.

No, I am sure that it wont. Its a real nice idea, Yet somewhere some how possibly a third party .wav program will turn up...

Have a look under the section for ringtunes for MP3 Ringtones if that sparkls your intrest.

the OS does not support wav files. i believe 3rd party applications that have audio in them calls to the API that supports various audio file types (ADPCM, MIDI, etc) for the 7100 rather than creating new file type possibilities via their own API (if that would even be possible). i personally do not see there being a limitation of the hardware besides the software.

but i'm curious... how large are these wav file attachments? i would think they would be rather large, but i'm not really sure. we have something at work that does this for our Tech Support group's ticket system, but i've never bothered looking at the file size associated with the wav files. i don't really see the benefit of being able to play extremely large wav files via email attachment.

jibi - our Cisco VoIP voice mail system sends a wav file to our email address each time a person leaves a message. I just tested and I would say 125-200kb is the average size of the wav file.

You mention your organization is looking at creating an app? for this? Any more information you could share. Would it require the BES?

This is really becoming an issue for us.

THANKS!

we aren't looking at creating an app. we just have some sort of voicemail app that does the same thing as you're talking about (i don't think its cisco voip, since i would have been involved if that had been added). our parent company does use a fairly large rollout of cisco voip, so i can feel your pain (well, one day, i could, atleast) concerning this issue.

i would recommend bombarding RIM with the feature. it would atleast let you know the base of whether or not it would one day be possible, not to mention letting them know that it is a needed/wanted feature.

We receive our voice mails in Outlook, similiar to your situation. The only time we use a phone for voice mail is if on the road. I was disappointed to find that the blackberry could not play wav files, this seems like basic functionality in today's world.

Thumbs up Retrieving WAV file voicemail from your BlackBerry

See this site http://www.itrezzo.com/BlackBerry_Paging_services.htm and check out the Full Featured Voicemail description: "From a BlackBerry using the itrezzo Applet, you can click on the .wav attachment and have it call your cell phone and play you the message."
