    You might try using Desktop Manager 4.2 sp2 with Roxio media manager. It should convert your files to play on the pearl.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~that would probably depend on the settings you choose on that roxio program...but I know the dollars5 program will play it full screen

    Agreed - is your issue with the BB Media Player or the application you purchased?

    We would need a bit more info to trouble shoot your issues....

    Did someone send you an email that plays on a pearl? How was it sent? What "video thing" did you download?

    Actually I have not seen where anyone has had much luck emailing or messaging videos. I beleive it may have something to do with file size restrictions.

    Ok...br7...

    You're right. I tried to send a ringtone via MMS and I couldn't do it. I guess the file is too big.

    I tried to send a video via Bluetooth to my bf's Pearl when it was within arm's length and it sent it just fine. You'll have to do it that way.

    Hey, maybe the Pearl 2 will allow users to send videos via e-mail or MMS... I hope.

    br7,
    What OS are you running? The dollar5 web site indicates the mediaPlayer product requires v4.2.1.

    I also looked at the same product for the same reason (full screen video playback) and am now trying to find which OS upgrade is correct for my old Cingular (now ATT) Pearl. The latest "Cingular" OS I can find is v4.2.0.89/4.2.0.73. I did find an ATT OS v4.2.1.154/4.2.1.96.

    Does anyone know if I can use the ATT OS on the old Cingular device?
