Open Attachment function gone missing

The Open Attachment function in my email has somehow gone missing. I did two things which might have caused this.

 

1. I installed an app called MiuTunes and now when I click the menu key in an email MiuTunes is the top option. Could it somehow have overwritten it?

 

2. I did software update which somehow cleaned out my system app and forced me to reinstall all of them, vlingo, tellme, etc....

 

Is there a way to reinstall the Open Attachment function without wiping my BB clean? Thanks.

Re: Open Attachment function gone missing

I have the same program "MiuTunes" on my device.  I am still able to open attachments using the menu key.  First thing to try is a battery pull while the device is on, leave it out for 30 sec and reinstall.  Wait the 1-3 min reboot time and send an attachment to your email address.  Let us know how this works out.

I have not tried this, but will. However, to a novice like me it seems a little scary. What does "removing the battery with the device on" actually do? Thanks.

It's no big deal, really.  Just pull it out with the device on.  It's like rebooting your home computer.  You will not lose anything.

Thanks. I tried it, but no luck. I see this in the note:

 

[1. Attachment]

 

but nothing under Menu key that says Open Attachment

Re: Open Attachment function gone missing

Try rolling the trackball to the attachment, hit the menu key or just push the trackball....what happens?
