RIM Posts First Document About OS 4.5 Feature Support

Josep has a sharp eye and noticed the first support document on RIM’s knowledge base about OS 4.5. It lets you know how to how to download and save an email message attachment in its native file format.

The caveat with this feature is that it is only available on BES and the size limit is set by the BES admin.


You will be able to save the following file formats in their native format on your media card. It even has a progress bar!

  • Microsoft® Word (.doc)
  • Microsoft® Excel® (.xls)
  • Microsoft® PowerPoint® (.ppt)
  • Adobe® PDF (.pdf)
  • WordPerfect® (.wpd)
  • ASCII (.txt)
  • Rich Text Format (.rtf)
  • HTML (.html)
  • Zip (.zip)
  • Graphic
  • Audio

  1. What I need to know more is when I can get OS 4.5 for my T-Mo 8320??

  2. So.. If this is in fact true then the seeded version of RIM SUPPOSEDLY provided to its people is not the final release i think because I am running that on my 8320 and no way I have found can you open PDF, XLS or ZIP (the ones i’ve tried opening). I don’t know if that has anything to do with the server update that will be needed for the 4.5 OS release, but I wouldn’t think so. I hope this is attachment service-Independent and device-driven :/

    just my 2 cents 🙂

  3. Probably requires BES 4.1 SP5 or SP6

  4. I would Like took know Myself when Will I be able too Upgrade too RIM OS 4.5? I am Currently Running OS 4.3. Also I would like too know if there will a release for the Blackberry Unite Software here in the US?

  5. Is this 5 (or at least 1) year too late? With Office2007 the default extensions to save without losing some file fidelity are docx, xlsx, pptx, etc. So RIM is finally getting up to speed with Office 2003 but leaving thos of us who have moved beyond a 5 year old office suite out in the dark. Gee thanks RIM, you guys are just SO with the times. 🙁
