    Hey guys! You were so great at answering my lst question, I thought I would ask another. I have tried sending some emails and I get a message saying it the email message exceeds the size limit. Same thing for some emails that I receive with attatchments. I guess I misunderstood when I thought I could send and receive emails on my bold just the same as I would on my PC. Am I not doing something right or am I really just limited?

    There is a size limited put on by RIM. I can't remember right off the top of my head what it is, but I want to say around 3mb. I know you can use opera mini to downloaded larger files from the web but don't think it helps with email.

    Thanks cowboy. I have to say that is disappointing. I guess I was asking too much from my 600$ phone. Lol.

    Its not the phone, it is the infrastructure (both fixed and wireless) that make the need for some limitations. Check blackberry.com knowledge base for exact limits.

    I believe the exact limit is 2.9mb... This is imposed on both receiving and sending emails / attachments...

    If you're using a personal account like gmail or hotmail, you can open that particular mail through opera mini like moderncowboy uuggested and download the attachment from there... Its a hassle, but its an easy workaround...

    Hope that helps...

    Yes, it does! Where can I get operamini? Is it an app I have to pay for or can I download it for free?

    Actually I was shocked how fast you did post it.

    Do like I do add an app or two play around with them and only keep the ones you really like. I agree it would be sweet if we could save more to the memory cards.
