    Had the phone now two weeks. Got the upgrade to 2.2 from sprint succesfully. Enjoying the power of this machine for sure. I lurk here a lot and have learned tons for sure from reading, reading, reading sometimes till the wee hours!

    Three things I still can't seem to figure out.

    1. Opening an attachment in an email: When a pic or doc file comes in I can't seem to view it. I click "view attachment" it shows the name of the file and the size but does not open the file or download it for me to see. What am I doing wrong? Some kind of settings issue maybe?

    2. Deleting a file: I downloaded a pdf file off the internet and now I wish to delete it. Menu does not show an option to delete when I am viewing thde file with pdf viewer. Any ideas?

    3. Voice email: I love the voice texting, voice emailing, etc but when I open an email to compose new and use the speak option to speak the name of a current contact (who has an email as part of his contact info) it does not try to auto fill that like it would if I hand texted it in. In other words, say I begin a new email and in the TO box I click the microphone and speak john smith. It types his name in but does not recognize him from contacts and fill in his email address like it does if I start to type j o h n s m....... by hand. I must be doing something wrong here too maybe?

    Thanks for your help.

    For deleting a downloaded file, download Astro from the Market. You can use it to browse your download directory, and delete the file or move it somewhere else if desired. You can also use it to reopen files you have downloaded previously.

    I can't really offer any tips on the voice question. I type or use my groups to find my contacts.

    When you open the email you will see the file icon in left corner. Put your finger on it it will ask you what you want do with file. After it downloads hold your finger on it again.
