    Problem receiving pics through SMS

    Advertisement



    Ok, running the new 4.5 on my curve 8300 (att). Well, when my sis texts me a picture, it comes through as a red X in a box and reads...text attachment missing or invalid.

    What does this mean and how do I fix it? I am not sure if the problem is coming from my end either. I could receive them all without a problem before I upgraded my OS.

    Any ideas?

    You are correct. Any media other than text is MMS. Ask her how she is sending you the pics. It may just be a problem on her end.

    MMS is how you have to send messages with attachments. Do you have a data plan with your carrier? ATT requires (per their blackberry customer service) some sort of data plan to get MMS messages. SMS goes over the voice network (which is why when you send someone a SMS on new years eve at midnight, it can take hours for them to get it, but if you do a BBM (data) it goes through instantly.)

    FYI, yes I have data plans and everything you can get for the Blackberry and such like I said everything has been fine until I upgraded my OS. WEIRD!
