    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~first of all. What version OS are you running. Try a couple of things. Format the card see if that helps. If not then maybe an upgrade of both dm and OS may be needed! Good luck! Let us know of your progress or questions!

    The reformat didn't work either it won't even open up files such as preloaded ringtones! what is the dm? on my pearl it says i am running 4.2 as OS. It was locked to cingular is it possible to get Tmobile Os to work on this phone. I have it unlocked already it works great just a little frustrated with no music. Its so weird that the mp3's play as ringtones when i receive calls, almost like they forgot to put media player on this phone!! thanks

    how are you trying to open the files? Sounds like you might be trying to do it by like a file manager approach.
    just go Media, Music, it should list the mp3's to play

    one thing to remember, be patient. There is a part of the OS install that it will seem it is doing nothing... just a blank screen with a spinning hour-glass. Just let it think (could take 20 minutes for that part). You shouldn't have any issues if you follow the instruction page.
