    Cant open .txt files on 8820's memory

    Advertisement



    Hey there I just switched from the BB 8100 to the 8820 and I love the phone but im having trouble opening docs:
    With my pearl, I COULD open .txt docs stored either inside the device local memory or in the attached media card.
    With the 8820 all i see when i open the file is a black screen, in a doc i could see the cursor moving, but the screen is totally black, i went to properties and I couldnt find anything to change to attempt a fix.
    This feels like a downgrade :/.
    Thanks.

    I'm not having any problem with my 8800. I open the Media app, then click the Menu button and select Explore, then browse to the file (ends in .txt), hit [Enter] and can veiw it and copy its contents.

    I even tried saving a text file as Unicode and UTF-8, and although the Unicode file formatted strangely I was able to view both.

    My only thought is to make sure you have the Attachment service installed. Good luck.

    Hmm... Brand new Verizon 8830 here. I have the same problem. I don't know if I have the attachment service. Can you tell me how to find out, and how to get it if I don't?

    I can tell you how to find it:
    Options/AdvancedOptions/Applications/
    Mine is the 7th down the list that loads there, it called:
    Blackberry 4.2 Attachment service 4.2.2


    I dont know how to reload it but probably by going to application load ?
    It may be one of the applications that come by default
