    How do I play .wav files on the 8700g

    Advertisement



    Our VoIP system sends .wav files to my email account when I receive a phone message. I have tried opening this attachment but I get an unrecognized document error message. Does anyone know if and/or how I can play these files?

    Hi falcon, I dont think the 8700 will play wav files. I was under the impression it will only play mp3. I dont have the 8700 so I cant really confirm that though. A really good way to tell would be to go to this website and download a wav, mp3, etc and see if they play. www.mobile41.com

    Falcon, The 8700 can use wav files as ringtones, I use them all the time. But I'm pretty sure it won't play wav attachments in emails. There was some discussion about a certain configuration of BES that did allow certain voicemail wav files to be played but don't know what became of that.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for clarifying Rich. I really need to get my hands on an 8703e to play with it and learn its capabilities.

    Don't do it Chris, you'll end up loving it and then you'll be a qwerty convert

    Obviously I am doing something wrong cause I can' get .wav files to play on my 8703e. I copied a file to my website, opened the browser on the BB and when I attempt to get the .wav file link I get an error message saying that the format isn't acceptable/recognizable. I know the website works as I have transferred numerous mp3 files and various themes. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Re: How do I play .wav files on the 8700g

    I have vonage and use a nifty work around to listen to my .wav email messages.

    All of my corporate email is handled by a web based integrated application which for some reason is having difficulty working directly with BB so rather than have messages sent directly to BB I set it up to have messages first sent to Gmail and from gmail it is sent to BB.

    Having Gmail in the middle does 3 things:
    1. It provides an extra layer for spam protection so I get hardly any spam on my Pearl.

    2. I can pull up the gmail mobile app and see instantly who has sent me email - similar to my inbox on the BB but kind of nifty.

    3. When there is a .wav attachment in my BB inbox I now go to the gmail web site (not the mobile site) with my BB html browser, log in and listen to the .wav email attachment through the browser.

    It's an extra step and a pita but it works. Given the fact that only 1 or 2 messages end up in my email inbox when I'm away from the PC it's not that big of a deal.

    Another nice thing: All of your email goes to gmail so think of it as a back up system for all of your inbound email

    Best part is, it's free!

    Bearhill,

    I tried what you suggested.

    1. Setup Gmail
    2. forwarded email to gmail
    3. setup browser on the bb as Microsoft IE
    4. downloaded attachment onto bb from gmail
    ..............Same problem ............... device doesn't support wav files.

    I have an 8707G.... what am I doing wrong?

    Cheers

    Andy
