When my Internet went AWOL earlier today before I got the latest BOL episode I thought no problem, I'll download it to my new Storm.
Yeah right *seethe*
I kept getting an error (403) that suggested the file was too large and was blocked by Vodafone. However, when I contacted them I was told that the Blackberry did not advertise itself as being able to download podcasts specifically over the internet and that it was not a supported feature.
Basically I was told I was out of luck.
I asked if it was to do with the size of the file and I was told that Vodafone do not restrict the size of any download although the Vodafone support guy suggested a file of podcast size would probably take up too much bandwidth and the fact that it copuld not download would be becaues 'the bandwidth' wouldn't be there' to handle it.
I really wish I had bought an iPhone and can only suggest that those thinking of getting a Storm as an alternative to the iPhone think again and stay away from this phone and carrier.
