    johnnyh, The 8700 is not an MP3 player. I have heard rumors that you can finally load and play a complete song, but from what I hear it is really limited in how many and which songs play well. Remember, the Blackberry devices are designed to be communication tools first with anything else added on as an afterthought.

    Hope this Helps
    Rcbjr.

    This on Handango might work good....
    Berry Tunes

    Anytime I had a phone that would play mp3's but not store them I would just make ringtones of the whole song and play them that way. Like Rcb said it may slow down your BB, the song may not play well and you may take up lots of useful memory.

    I'd recommend and iPod... Even if the current gen of BB's could handle a complete mp3's the lack the needed storage.

    Militantmin, here's a thread that is for Tmo customers, not sure what carrier you have, but it's a basic idea anyway...

    johnnyh if you did get songs on the device would you listen to it via the loud speaker, or headset? I've for a few mp3's on my device, just because of this thread, but the quality is not brilliant, as compared to my Nokia 6682...

    I use software from simprit.com called MiniRingtone. If you are using the 8700 you can make ringtones as long as you like. As has already been pointed out though, (although the poncy Pearl kinda says different) BlackBerry is the ultimate comms device, not an entertainment centre. Want mp3>iPod want digicamera>Sony
