    Texting a pic

    Advertisement



    A friend is trying to text me a pic to my BB8703e Verizon, I can get his text message but not the pic? Does he need to do something to send this to me?
    Thanks,
    Don

    first question that needs to be answered, do you have a blackberry data plan?

    Re: Texting a pic

    'Texting' with pictures is also known as, MMS, or MultiMedia Message. In order to be able to send/receive MMS, you must have a DATA plan. If you do not have a DATA plan, the MMS will look like a normal SMS text.

    in addition to my last post, if you DO have data, then hook up your blackberry and run apploader in desktop manager. make sure you have blackberry attachments installed

    I do have a daya plan and just tested and cannot view images that are emailed to me either. I am on the Verizon network. I have never recieved any text /pic messages before via texting, not email.
    Thanks

    ok then the problem has to be you do not have blackberry attachments installed. plug in your bb, open desktop manager. run the apploader and check off the box for blackberry attachments

    I ran app loader and nothing is in the list. How do I get the attachment software to load?

    Yes it is plugged in :-)
    The list does populate on my work PC, I am trying to get this working with desktop manager on my home laptop. Is there a seperate .alx I could use to add this?
    Thanks,Don

    Re: Texting a pic

    they see nothing in app loader because they do not have the OS installed on that computer
    as for MMS, I am pretty sure Verizon disables MMS on non-camera phones. The BB 8830 also does not do picture messages, but the 8130 can.
