Re: Playing music file attachments from emails
So when you open the email and click on the attachment it opens and the first time asked you what program to use and you defaulted to the stock player, or something along those lines correct? Now when the file plays it opens a mini player or the full player? I ask this because with the full player I've not heard the sound only come out as it would if you were talking on the phone, it should come out as music would. Now you could lower the volume and listen that way but even so you should be able to press the power button to disable the screen and listen that way. With the mini player I'm not sure if you can put the screen to sleep without stopping the playback, but I would imagine that you could. There is no way that I can think of to have the stock player act as the phone would when you are on a call and use the sensor to put the screen to sleep.
Alternately I'm wondering if you could maybe use Google Voice instead? Google Voice once setup will transcribe your voicemail and will send you an email and if you have the app installed on your device will also put a notification on your device. With that you can usually read the message, which is sometimes much funnier than autocorrect, and/or listen to the message. Using the Voice app it will cause the screen to react just as it would if you were on a call or you can play it through speakers.
