    I have video messages sent to me from a couple friends on verizon wireless. When they are sent to my email, they are done so in at .3g2 file extension. If I am on my PC viewing this file, it opens and plays just fine using Quicktime. If I check my mail via my iPhone I can download the attachment, touch it to play it, Quicktime will open but I am met with the error message of "This movie could not be played"


    Is there any way to play these files direct out of my email? I have vlc4iphone installed, but I cannot see any way to save the file out of my email to my phone to play anywhere.

    Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    So you want to be able to play then movie not from your email and from i.e. your ipod app?

    I Want to be able to view the attachment in my email as I would say, a picture, or pdf file. If i'm on my laptop and I get my mail, this is obviously no problem, but if I am in a position where I get it on my iPhone, I would like to view it directly from there. Problem is, I see no option to save the attachment (I.E if you touch a picture you have the option to save it, can't do that with this type of attachment)
