    Question Uploading mp3's to the 8703e

    Advertisement



    Hi all, I am completely new to the blackberry and I have found a couple of mp3's I would like to use for notifications etc and I installed the desktop software but see no area to upload the mp3's, only applications. Do I have to browse to the location of the mp3 on the web and download it to the BB that way or is there an app to install on the PC to upload direct??

    Thanks in advance all

    Not sure if anything has changed since I had my 8700, but the only way I could do it was d/l from the web. I usually put the file in my yahoo briefcase and d/l that way

    ican is correct, you can't copy them directly from the PC to the BB, you have to download them OTA. One of the drawbacks of the 8700.

    If you put version 4.2 OS on your blackberry uploading .mp3s is easy, just use the media manager.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~you can put it on your 8703e. You have to download the newest desktop manager from bb website it comes with roxio software that allows you to do it. I did it on my 8703e.

    Re: Uploading mp3's to the 8703e

    I am hoping that one of you can help me out, I tried to get the verizon 4.2 but you need a verizon number to start the DL... I am up in Canada and hence no verizon number :P Can anyone find me a DL link to 4.2OS as I have tried a few links and they all come up dead or need to be a customer of said vendor :P

    Thanks a bunch

    Well as posted, if you do the upgrade to OS 4.2 you can upload them yourself with the new desktop software... I can provide you with the link to the working DL for OS 4.2 and desktop software 4.2 if you'd like
