    Thanks N8! Signed up! Question does the Pearl allow you to play the videos? Of course the 8700g only shows pictures and text.

    FYI, depending on how you choose to receive your alerts, most will be sent into your Messages box with the icon being the globe.

    Just in case you start wondering why your phone is buzzing but you can't find the reason why.

    * Do not appear on your messages folder when a pushed message is received FYI.

    I am saying, when you get a pushed alert, such as this alert or say the pushed weather from BBMobile, a globe will appear on your home screen.

    Now when a message is usually received, the mailbox icon in which it was received, a red star will show up on.

    With pushed messages, that red star does not appear, but the message is there.

    This has caused people in the past to wonder why their device buzzed and why the light is still flashing red.

    Make sense?

    Ditto...You beat me to it...Just tried it (because they finally sent an alert that was video), clicked on the link, it loaded and played in the media player! WOOT!

    So to answer your question MsBrenda, YES the Pearl WILL play the video alerts that these send...SWEET!

    I will try and make a video later showing...

    I cant receive news alerts either...
    Do they come as an email or are they an IM?
    Do I have to log on to MSN or Yahoo IM to sign up?
    Is there a setting in options I need to open and run the video podcasts?
    Help!
    Thanks

    They come to you actually as a PUSHED Multimedia Message...
