    Texting Help?

    My 8700c is only accepting text messages that are plain text. If someone sends me a text picture, I will not receive the text all together. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to the Stacks aputty. Do you have MMS (multimedia messaging service) enabled on your device? Pictures can not be sent via Text, only MMS.

    He has a 8700c so that means that it will NOT recieve a MMS.... It's a cingular thing.

    They should be able to send the picture mail to your email address so you can see it on your blackberry. You will get an email stating that such and such sent you a picture mail with a link to go see it online.

    Maybe Cingular doesn't work like that naymore though, I can't remember.

    aputty, Welcome to PinStack.

    Limitation of Cingular and the 8700. Don't know if they will ever take care of their problem in implementing MMS for the 8700.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Well... You "could" get it as an attachment through e-mail... That's what I usually do myself...
