Another undocumented iPhone 1.1.1 feature: Can play MP3/AAC/WAV audio email attachments

Another undocumented iPhone 1.1.1 feature: Can play MP3/AAC/WAV audio email attachments

iPhone Atlas reader Greg Seecof recently discovered:

"I can now play back audio attachments in email messages.  I only tried one, an AAC voicemail file sent from my PhoneValet software but for the first time since I got my iPhone, it played!  I was actually crafting a feedback message to Apple regarding this handicap when I discovered it worked now."

Sure enough, testing confirms that the iPhone's email client can now (after the 1.1.1 update) download and play audio files in all the QuickTime audio formats it supports, including MP3 AAC and WAV.

Other previously reported, undocumented new features include text message sound settings, international characters, and new options for video playback.
