    There's three ways for pictures. None for video except email.
    1. Take picture> menu> send to messenger contact.
    2. Open conversation> menu> send file> locate said file and select it.
    3. Open media> pictures> select wanted picture> menu> send to messenger contact.

    As far as videos the easiest way would be to do it via bluetooth. Unless they're farther than 50 feet from you, then that's where the email comes in. If your email provider let's you send large size data files.

    Hope that hels a little.

    Thank you, but I seem to still have a problem. Once the send to messenger contact was selected a box comes up select a contact *EMPTY* but It doesnt let me select a contact; I can only select cancel. How can I select a contact from here this point? You are absolutely correct on sending videos with only email but the sending pictures from contact messenger driving me crazy!

    If you are trying to use bbm, do you have any contacts? That would be my only thought as to why they wouldn't show up. If you're trying to sebd them to your phone contacts it won't work like how I explained.

    Well then that's something different. Do you have MMS capability? And does the recipient have MMS? If not the only way to do it will be bluetooth or email.

    Ok, does the person you want to send it to have it also? If so there shouldn't be a problem. Compose MMS attach file and send. If they don't have it, then the message won't arrive. It'll look like you sent it, because you have but it won't make it to the other side.

    Ok, this is what you have to do. Forget what I said in my first post, LOL. That was something completely different.

    Now when you're sending MMS messages, you should still be able to select a picture and hit menu and you should have an option that says Send MMS. I think. I don't have it on this phone but I've seen it on the Pearl I had.

    You should also be able to go into your contacts and select the person and hit menu and click compose MMS if I'm not mistaken. But again, they HAVE to have MMS also.

    You shouldn't be selecting a messenger contact. It should be a regular contact.

    If you start from your contacts list you'll be able to select how to send it to them. Select your contact, hit menu and select MMS contact. That's the only way I can think of how to do it.

    I figured it out I thought because I had contacts in my addresse book that would do. I needed to go to blackberry messenger and add contacts because that list was completely empty that explained the yellow box EMPTY............Thanks for all of your help..........I think that is what you were sayn somewhere in this forum.........thanks again!
