    New phone, attachments worked, now don't!

    After fighting with my phone and not being able to get it to open Word or Excel attachments, I brought it back to Verizon and got a new one.

    In the store, I was able to receive an e-mail and open a Word doc.

    I got back to my office and installed Lyrics latest hybrid. Before installing, I backed up the phone. After installing I dialled *228 1 and *228 2. I sent the service books over the Internet and registered the phone.

    I opened docs to go (Word), accepted the EULA, and upgraded to the latest version.

    I sent myself an e-mail with a .doc file and it doesn't recognize it!

    I restored the phone and it still doesn't work.

    What the heck is going on???

    I would uninstall the hybrid and install straight .151 and check to see if you can. If so then there is something with the hybrid that is causing you this issue.

    Wiped the phone, installed straight .151 downloaded from ealvnv's post - no Shrink-A-Os. Dialed *228 and sent service books.

    The phone does not recognize attachments.

    Attachment service is listed under applications with Allow as all permissions.

    Now what?

    Does it recognize any attachment type?

    I have tried .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, and .wav -- Nothing is recognized.

    what .jpg files?

    The only think I can think of is the following

    1-wipe the phone and install .75 then install .151 on top of that without wiping

    2- or try the official .148 and see if it still happens
