    There is a known issue with MMS between T-Mobile and other carriers. I don't know for sure, but I think it is something on their side. There isn't any "fix" that you can do yourself. There is a work around though. MMS can be sent like an email. Have them send it to your BB email address, and are if that doesn't work. That's how I got around the problem.

    Try sending a picture from your BB to your self (BB)
    I have to do that every once in a while to my wifes BB in order to get pix.

    I used to have this problem and for some reason I wasn't ever able to get mms when I was running IM+. But when I signed out and closed that program , I had no problems.I guess try closing some apps . Not sure but I know someone here can help you or direct you in the right direction so just sit tight my friend.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I'm on T-mobile and haven't had any problem getting pictures on my 8700, and I've had them sent as both an attachment to an email and through the BB messenger. Must be either the model or the OS that's causing the problem?

    Tell your friends to send mms to your email that is connected to your pearl. if you are in tmobile you should be able to open the picture drom your email. works for me on TMO.

    She's having problems via MMS (text) which is different than both Email (data) and BBM (pin.)

    i have a question concering bb email. i haven't done the personal email setup, how many email accounts can you have at one time? also, is it secure and safe? i imagine it is but i just worry about stuff like that. i hope the problem gets resolved, ya nasSsty, is there an upgrade to your OS? Maybe thatll solve some problems?

    I know this but I had the same problem and went around it by asking my friends to put my email address in the send to field instead of my phone number. It will arrive as an email with attachment. You can get around the problem for sending and avoid MMS charges if you only have a data plan by sending emails to phonenumber@vtext.com as well and it will send the file via email from your phone but arrive as MMS on other phones.

    Try it or not, no loss to me just a suggestion to get around MMS problems from other vendors.

    Re: About to throw my phone against the wall.........!!!!!!!

    i had this and thought it was annoying. it only happened when i was on the rogers os. i went back to the tmobile .64 and it did not do that anymore. that one had a lot of droped calls though so i changed os to the cingular .73 and have yet to have any issues.

    just my thoughts!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~sometimes I receive pics perfectly fine. If I receive a blank one I just simply ask the person to resend the picture. 95 percent of the time the picture shows up for me I know everyone has their own little trick but I figured I'd throw mine in
