What happens that stops you?

 

MP3 files will transfer over BBM.

You're getting the "cannnot save file" or your friend?

 

I know this works, just tested today with a friend.

But, IF you are sending the file, it won't be asking YOU to save the file.. that happens on the recipient's end.

 

So, please give me the sequence of events as you are in a BBM chat with a buddy, and you decide to send him an MP3 file... what do you?

You're trying to send the file, but you're getting the message that YOU can't save the file?

 

That is what confuses me, and why I ask would you please just post the exact steps you go through in the sending the file.

 

You can post screen shots here in this forum. You might need ten posts in the forum in order to post pictures (if you need more posts, go to the welcome section and say hi and welcome to a few new members).

Re: is mp3 file sending automatically disabled for bbm?

Hi jsanders,
That's the error msg during my chat with a bbm buddy: cannot save the file. It autodeclines it. He is using a bold 97xx.

Anyways I have more or less figured it out earlier,thanks for the enlightenment. I will have other topics for you soon:smileyhappy:
