iPhone Recognizes Audio Email Attachments

Dan at UneasySilence points out that if you’ve upgraded your iPhone to the latest version (1.1.1) the email viewer application now supports wav and mp3 files in your email. This is surprising to me that it wasn’t inherently in the iPhone to begin with…

Dan points out that this is useful if you’re using a voicemail service such as CallWave, but also if you’re a Vonage user like myself where your home voicemails come to you in email/wav format. Of course I’d love to get your feedback as to how well this new functionality works on the iPhone – does it actually play the files? I ask because it didn’t work natively on my Windows Mobile BlackJack until I upgraded it to version 6 of the platform – something about the wav file encoding that the player didn’t recognize… I’d assume Apple wouldn’t fall into the same mistake, but would love to hear verification from iPhone and Vonage users…

EDIT: According to Chris, although voicemail wav files are recognized on the 1.1.1 iPhone, they aren’t playable. Thanks Chris!
