    I have a basic question, I have like three email accounts on my BH 2 but if I receive an attachment I get the download screen but then less than second later I have a message that shows "Cannot download. The content is not supported on the phone". So does mean I can't download files to my SD card, I'm tried to download two file types, PDF and a zip file. I was just wondering if there was something I needed to do first. Thanks

    Anyone have a good solution to downloading wav sound files?

    My Magicjack sends me VM via a wav file.

    Have you just tried to download it? If the music player doesn't play it, which would be weird, look in market for another player.

    Sorry, I meant playing downloaded wav files. I can download, but Android doesn't natively support wavs (probably a licensing issue) and I only could find one DJ'ing app that didn't really work for me.

    So I'm looking for a simple wav player.

    I receive an attachment I get the download screen but then when I press "save" button I have a message that shows "unable to save attachment to SD card". I'm talking about picture file about 250kb. This is my wife's phone and this is first time I tryed to download picture. She has AOL email account, regular 1.6 OS. Called Tmob no help .
    Any solutions? Thank you

    I often have problems opening attachments in the Gmail app.

    My work around is to open Gmail (or your web mail host of choice) in the browser and download the file from there.
