    Does anyone know if the verizon BB 8830 will support MMS? The cingular 8800 does but verizon always seems to cripple this feature.

    The 8830 comes with a camera, no? Then am sure it will work. But, on some devices (on T-Mobile) you have to send an MMS from the device first, before it becomes active, per se'...

    I am currently at a WES 2007 "Wireless Enteprise Symposium" put on by BlackBerry. I can verify for you tomorrow. A couple guys at the Verizon Booth have the 8830. Will see if they will let me check it out!

    I also work for VZW, however I have not seen one in person I know for a fact it doesnt have a camera (look at the pictures on the vzw website) but have read all the manuals on it...and it is capable of MMS....if you could just double verify...hey...even better!

    conan42 - when you activated it, did you have the Global GSM-SIM card inserted in the device?

    does it matter if you have the global SIM card installed in order for MMS to work?

    Absolutely not; the Global SIM card only allows one to access GSM voice/data overseas on Vodafone networks.

    I have the 8830 and it doesn't receive or send MMS messages. Is there anyway to get around Verizon disabling it?

    Re: verizon 8830 and MMS

    I'm having the same problem with not being able to view Pix Messages. In fact I don't even get a link to view them. Where the link should be it's just blank. I'm also unable to view HTML emails. When I open one I see all the page code. Anyone have any ideas?
