    Not Able To Send Attachments In Emails

    Advertisement



    I have had my phone for about a week and a half and I absolutely love it! I am coming from a treo 700p and the only big difference has been nit having a camera and no touch screen. It has been frustrating though, because I can't send attachments when sending an email. Maybe because I'm new, I just don't know the right way to do it. If there is a way, can someone please share it with me. Thanks

    Hi jay. What kind of attachments are you trying to send? In an email you wont be able to send images or audio, for that you will use MMS. Let us know if we can help further.

    seems like verizon has blocked us from sending MMS as well unfortunately. you can send files to other blackberry users using the blackberry messenger

    What attachments are you trying to email? I think with most BBs you can forward an email with an attachment, but there really are no files, except possibly the saved pictures that could be attached to emails.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Adding to RC:

    Only the Pearl allows attachments on composed emails. All previous BBs can only forward attachments already received.

    This is likely a limitation of the 4.1 OS.

    And Sprint doesn't allow MMS? That seems a bit odd.

    But I do understand the desire for wanting to send emails with attachments instead of MMS. Emails are included in BlackBerry Data Plan but MMS has a separate charge.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Thanks for all the responses. I think it's so silly to have a device, that's made/known for its email capabilities, but not able to send attachments. I guess that's something that I miss about my treo and chatter email. Hopefully, with the new update, we will be able to do this. Still this is a great device!

    Re: Not Able To Send Attachments In Emails

    It's not a problem of not being able to send attachments, with just the stock apps it's that there are really no files to attach. As I asked before, what are you trying to attach to send?

    Going to butt in here, So other than the Pearl (and hopefully later modes..) it is not possible to forward attachments? - especially in their original form (not compressed by the attachment server)

    In the two years (Almost) since the last post, there have been several upgrades and I believe that now when you forward a message with attachments, they are forwarded also. At least the last time I tried it the attachment was received also.
