Re: Switch from HTML to Text

Hi and welcome to the forums!

You have to change the option in Yahoo.

On the BB you can select Plan text while viewing the email, to read it, in the mean time.

Thanks,

The ability to read messages formatted in HTML will be available when you update your OS to 4.5. You can either wait till your carrier releases it, or follow these steps do install 4.5 onto your phone:

 

After you download and install the handheld software from a carrier's website that has the 4.5 OS, do a search on your computer to find and delete the vendor.xml file. The file is most likely in the following location: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. Afterwards just start the Desktop Manager and the software will be available for you to install.

**NOTE** - the handheld software you have must be for the same model as you have. You cannot install software for any other model.
