    Do you have a messaging plan? You need to have a messaging plan from your carrier to receive MMS (pictures, ringtones).

    Oh okay then. Well the file your friend was sending you, is it an actually ringtone? Or some music file such as an mp3 that he is using as one? Its important because actual ringtones are very very small in size, and most mp3s and such are usually larger than 1 megabyte. I don't know the exact limit but mms messaging has a very small attachment limit.

    Do you also have unlimited data AND text or just unlimited data? Cause you can send/recieve ringtones via MMS only if you have Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) on your cell phone, but if you don't have BIS... you can't send or receive ringtones.

    Dedda55, To use bluetooth you must be with in so many feet of your friend, and you have to set up your phones to pair and trust each other, then set one phone to recieve and then tell the other phone to send.

    Bluetooth setup can all be found from the bluetooth icon on your app screen.

    Detailed instructions can be found here http://forums.pinstack.com/f112/transfer_file_using_bluetooth_two_blackberry_pearl-14130/

    Bluetooth has nothing to do with text or data plans
