    Thumbs down Have a 1GB SD but still no OTA MP3???

    Advertisement



    Oops, I originally posted this in the wrong (87xx) forum. Hopefully I'll get a response here.

    I know this is not a new topic, but I've been searching the archives for a while and none of the previous threads seems to have answered my question.

    I have a T-Mobile Pearl with a 1GB Micro SD card that is working great. I've been able to load mp3's on the card and play them, and I have a stereo headset on the way from eBay. I don't have mass storage mode enabled and have had no problems with the media player as long as I load mp3s on my device thru the desktop manager.

    Here's the deal--I'm a serious music junkie and download a dozen or so new mp3's a week from various indie music blogs. I would love to be able to do this OTA on my pearl. However, even though I have more than 900MB left on my sd card, I can't seem to download mp3s that are bigger than ringtone size. I don't know about you all, but one can only download so many JT ringtones before the novelty wears off.

    I recall reading something about file download limit sizes. Any way to disable or edit this? Any other way around this issue, like a 3rd party app or something?

    Thanks in advance,
    Timbo

    Its probably cause, when u download mp3s OTA it saves em on your phone instead of an SD Card. I aitn sure how to fix that cause I dont download music OTA. Lets see what others have to say

    I wondered if that was the case, but I also have enough room in my phone mem for several mp3's...maybe it's a ram issue? (Do these things have ram, even?)

    Well u might have some room on your phone but the limit is set to 2.8MB and even if u have alot of room as long as its on your phone u can only download 2.8MBs.

    The reason is that the BB limits the download file size for MP3s as a bandwidth issue I think. Your not going to be able to do it for now.

    OK, thanks folks. Do you think that an OS update in the future might resolve this, or is it a hardware or wireless service issue?
