Default Unzipping on the BB 8830?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a program or a way to unzip a file on the BB or do I have to get it to the desktop and proceed from there?

I did a search, but didn't turn up anything.

Thanks

I don't know of an unzip application for the BB--there really is no reason to place zipped files on your BB. What are the circumstances you in which you are needing to do so?

When you get a zip file on your blackberry in an email you can actually view the files in the zip file if they are supported attachments. Just thought that might help... If you have the file on the SD card you can just attach the file to an email and email it to yourself to view the contents

Sometimes I will try to download a program to try and it comes down in a zip format. To be honest, it may be meant to be installed via desktop then, I was not sure.

Zipped files of an application installation are meant for the desktop, and should be installed from there. Although you can view the contents of the zip file as mentioned, you won't be able to do much with them.

Is there a good file explorer or something like the resco product for the ppc platform, for the bb?
Right now I am just. Using the explore option with the media player.

Ok that is what I thought. Thanks for the info.
The mobile versions of this forum are amazing. So easy to navigate, respond, and quote to.
