    You can view several file attachment types on your BlackBerry® device, including .zip, .htm, .html, .doc, .dot, .ppt, .pdf, .wpd, .txt, .vcf, and .xls files. You can also view .bmp, .gif, .jpg, .png, .tif, and .wmf files, and play .wav files.

    Re: Text Files???

    Word and text are 2 different things


    4 example. Text files end with extensions such as ".txt"

    And word extensions are ".doc"


    I use dynoplex to view "MS Office" files

    But 4 the text files..... Multiplay Prof. Edition let's me save ascii text files ".txt" and I can open those on any pc- or a really cool thing is ability to import/export to the native BB "Memo" program


    I don't recall the Dynoplex web address offhand

    But the MultiPlay site which rocks as an alternative Media player is www.dollars5.com

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Thanks for all the help. None if it really helped though. How do you get the files on the BB?

    download VPN http://www.accessanywhere.net/ms/SignUp.html (it's only a 14-day free trial now ) and load it onto your BB and PC then follow the simple instructions

    you can move files onto the BB simply by attaching your BB via USB to the PC...enable mass storage mode...then drag and drop files into the new drive created by windows
