    Unable to open mp3 attachments

    Advertisement



    I email myself an mp3 for a ringtone, and I can see the attachment but when I scroll through the list of options on the email, "open attachment" isn't there. I was able to open a word doc, though.

    Any suggestions?

    your profile does not state which phone you have, however the fact that you posted this under 87xx area I will venture the 87xx that you are using does not have an mp3 player. first one was the pearl if I remember right.

    I have an 8703e for Verizon, and the clerk at the store was using mp3 ringtones on his. Do I need a seperate application in order to use these?

    Very simple, download the ringer from the net, since you cant email it to yourself as the BB wont handle the attachment.

    Also try www.mobile41.com for many ringers.

    Visit the link provided from your BB and scroll through all the ringers till you find one you like, then click the link and the tune will play on your BB. Then all the way at the right icon click it and you will see an option for save.

    The MP3 needs to be hosted on a site somewhere for you to download.

    That's a problem. I have a bunch of ringers that I created myself. None of the standard web uploaders work with the BB. I've read several places that you can email them to yourself and save them on the BB, but have had no luck doing it that way.

    I saw the website you posted. I checked it and found a few I liked. Would still like to get mine on the BB though..

    Try any of these... They all work for me, and have on all BB's I have tried...
    Thanks. Tried the first 2 on the list. Can't get either of them to work with the Sprint 8703. The 2nd one gives me an Error 406: Not acceptable. The page you are trying to load is not supported by the browser.

    Yes, mp3. 20~30 sec clips. File size is under 400k.. I appreciate the help. This is my first BB. I've never had these kind of issues with any of my previous phones.

    Thanks..
