    8707G WAV files

    Advertisement



    Hi

    I have an 8707G (v4.1.0.347) and receive my office voicemails as WAV email attachments sent to me via a VOIP provider (Engin)

    I understand that the BB model I have doesn't handle WAV files.

    Naturally it is frustrating having the message on my phone but not being able to listen to it.

    What are my options??

    I have heard there may be an update that allows wav ringtones, but I cant verify that, maybe someone else can.

    Re: 8707G WAV files

    Thanks for your response

    Browsing elsewhere on pinstack, it seems o/s.4.2.1 is my starting point.

    Can I upgrade my 8707 to a later o/s? Soon maybe???

    If so, can I get myself into deep water or is it painless???

    Cheers

    Andy

    Re: 8707G WAV files

    Sorry to pester but I'm sure the answer I need is on someone's fingertips.

    My problem is that my wav attachments can't be opened and that is probably due to the operating system version I am running.

    I downloaded Audiopop and checked with tech. support and they said my bb won't run wav attachments.

    As the wav attachments are missed voice mails, the content is important.

    Being lateral minded, I can see a variety of alternatives

    • upgrade O/S - is this possible?
    • find a voip provider that generates MP3 attachments - is this practical?
    • install a utility on the bb that converts wav to mp3 and process the attachment as an MP3 file - is this technically achievable?
    I am not really technically minded and just need to know what is the best way forward.

    Perhaps none of the above are practical!!!

    All contributions gratefully received

    Andy
