    is there a way to download files even if the phone doesnt support the format? example.... i tried to download a .rar file and an .avi file but it says cannot resume download cause format not supported. is there a way around this and be able to download it anyway?

    In Astro's preferences there are two areas of interest:

    • Edit File Extensions should allow you to add a file type for what you're trying to download if it's a specific extension (or a small number of them) not being recognized
    • Enable Browser Downloader apparently lets you download any file type, but also apparently at the cost of not being able to view attachments in GMail so it's useful to know about so you can turn it on only when needed.
