    8700 media playback problems

    Advertisement



    A friend owns a 8700 and wants to upload MP3 files on it. She lives faraway so I haven't handle her device.

    Apparently she hasn't been able to copy mp3 file on he BB. And she also doesn't know how to play the file or if its supported.

    Is media playback supported on the 8700? If so, how can she copy the files to the device n play them?

    It depends on the 8700s Operating System. If your friend has version 4.1, then the answer's no -- if version 4.2, yes. If the 8700 has 4.2, then you can use the Media Manager option in Desktop Manager to transfer multimedia files from the computer.

    Through the dm you'll be limited in the size of file you can transfer. I think 2.8mb is the limit.

    What do you mean by "...all the downloads from her carrier site"? Do you mean the DM and OS?, or that she has to do the transfer through the carrier site?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I believe that's exactly what rjs87 is saying. I have VZW & they have all the supported software upgrades on their site.
