    if you cannot find the "get plain text" option, you are most likely in your generic "messages" folder. To access the "get plain text" you have to be in a specific E-mail folder. ex: ****@vzw.blackberry.net

    Sorry, I was in a specific email folder and I couldn't find it. I did see it pop up later when I was in an email with no links.

    Plain text URL issue resolved. Temporarily at least

    Turned off my radio, then did a battery pull. Once powered back on they worked.

    it only works for about 20 mins, but if you turn off the radio then do a battery pull seems to do the trick. temporarily at least...

    A work around (at least for me) is to use the free app called forwardreplyedit. Once installed if you open an email and the links don't work just press menu > reply & edit or forward & edit either one works. Then just close the keyboard and the links work.

    well it works when you're in the composing field of an email, just doesn't work for an email that's sent to you and is in your inbox...so that goes along with what you're saying....

    idk why it recognizes the links for awhile then after like 20 mins it stops? that's ********....i'm doing some serious troubleshooting today...like removing all 3rd party apps and user info, wiping this piece clean, and then just resending service books...see if it works then. if not then it's an OS issue

    strange because i can open an email and hit the link and nothing happens like you said after 20 minutes or so. But while the email is still open if i hit menu > reply & edit and close the keyboard (just to get it out of the way) the links are active.

    It has been working for me since yesterday idk.

    Edit: To be clear these are emails that were sent to my inbox not ones i am composing...

    I had this issue when i first loaded .230..but then it started working all on it's own.

    After loading .323 ive had no issues. so long story short i dnt have this problem, but i have come across it.

    One other thing i noticed is that if you put the link in the subject line it seems to always work unlike when the link is in the body of the email. this at least allows you to send a link to your phone.

    In the time since I last posted in spontaneously stopped working in plain text messages. Since a bat pull, it is back up...

    This isn't the issue at all. You can't "get plain text" regardless of the folder when it is already a plain text message.

    exactly....you only get that menu option when it's an HTML email....

    the emails are already plain text, and the phone isn't recognizing the text as a URL that needs a link option to open the link in the browser...

    Good luck figuring this out...any chance it is a permissions thing (doesn't explain why it dies after 20 minutes or so...)?

    Right now mine when I view it through the email. I'm not getting links in messages.
    Yep, read the whole thing. I just needed a working phone for the next few days, 230 works OK for me. Little white screen while playing video poker but that was all.

    RIM and verizon are working on these things, so the next time a leak comes out I will see if it "works for me". All in all 320 was ok but I did not feel it was for me.

    Maybe you ought to give .323 a try.

    Just kidding. I totally hear you, the OS that's right for you is the one you're comfortable with.

    Like Hook, I don't get that option either ... sounds like it may appear only if the message is html?
    If you see HTML clickon it, it will then say "get plain text" . I 'm still on .148 and looked to see what options where there and mine read get HTML. When I clicked that it switched and then said Get plain text.

    another interesting thing i noticed

    when i updated my OS, my yahoo email icons aren't displaying the yahoo image, it just shows the generic envelope with the globe on it...the issue started when that happened...maybe the two things are related somehow?

    Doesn't work on my gmail either. Its definitely a device specific issue. Not able to duplicate on my friend's storm so he can't report it.

    Has anyone here had any luck yet? I'm desperately trying to figure this out. I like the 5.0 OS overall, but this issue is a complete showstopper for me. I get a number of forum listings each day to keep up with and right now I can't do anything with them. I saw the issue posted on the BlackBerry board too, but no answers there.

    I've seen several ideas to fix it but I don't think anybody really knows what exactly fixes it. I don't really know how mine got fixed. I just hit select when I was in an email and then all of a sudden it started working. Others say battery pull.

    Sounds like you've read the thread. Try them all. Good luck.

    While it's not really a "fix" I have found the suggestion of using "Forward Reply and Edit" to be an acceptable workaround until this gets a real fix. It's a free app, so it makes a lot easier to accept to accept an extra step to get my links. I'm still not happy, but it's better than having to go backwards on the OS.

    Unbelievable. Suddenly I'm not getting email links again!! I feel a trip to Verizon coming on.

    I didn't have a problem getting threads when sent from Crackberry so I'll subscribe to this thread again.

    Google. But so far these threadless emails are coming from one forum.
