    Mine does that every so often. I called support and they cleared my error log and sent me new books. I forgot how to clear the log. I am sure someone here already knows and can pass that on.

    hyper - um, you got the red X because you can't send mms without the service books and without the data plan, you can't get the service books. therefore, you can't send mms.

    LOL how did I know you were gonna find me here? Ok, so I only need the service books to send MMS but not receive MMS? How does that make sense.

    are you talking about the logs ALT+LGLG ?

    as for the red X, it's the no valid data plan

    yes, they both give you data, but you don't need a DATA plan, you need a BLACKBERRY data plan...

    a regular data plan ONLY works for NON blackberry phones ...

    You tell me. BB personal max plan is $39.99 and that includes only 1500 messages. Im paying $19.99 for 5mb and 1500 messages plus M2M. So yeah, considering all my texts go through and I can get to my medianet without problems. Ill take the Red-X those maybe 5 times a year I send a pic for the $20 savings per month.

    Re: Weird MMS situation

    Hey all,

    Let me add my experience with MMS. If I take a low res pic (smaller in size), I can send it fine. However, if I try to send a larger (higher res) pic, it always fails with the infamous red X. AT&T states that there is a size limitation to what can be sent via MMS. Guess size does matter.
