Default From a Mac

I found the easiest way is to e-mail them to your gmail account. Open and save them from the BB browser. MP3 works the best.

With my 8700 I'd upload them to the web and download them to my BlackBerry. With my 8100 I send them from my Mac to my BlackBerry via USB. It recognizes my 8100 as a mass storage device so it's quite simple, just drag and drop.

Does the mass storage deal require a microSD card?

awesome thanks, ill try that as soon as the browser appears I got the 8700G from T-Mobile yesterday around 4:00 and they said it would take about 24 Hours and its 3:20 now and still no globe icon...getting antsy!! I read a review saying the browser looks really ugly

"The BlackBerry's web browser can only be described as a travesty. It's vaguely reminiscent of the Blazer web browser for Palm OS, but even more limited and ugly. It's not rendering web pages so much as it's rending them, piece by piece, and jamming the result together like a particularly bad crossword puzzle. I can only suspect that it's really only intended to be used on mobile device-oriented websites, which admittedly look much better on it.

I will say this for the browser, it's fast. You can grab a page with relative ease, although that's less impressive when the result doesn't look much of anything like what the page was originally designed to."

I hope their wrong!!!

edit: ok, pictures work, but not MP3's... its fine, i just uploaded to a website and retrieved but i think it is odd that sounds had no Save option from the menu when i accessed through gmail (client or web).
