    Alltel 8130 pictures...

    Alltel still doesnt have mms working yet either, however if you would like an alternative way to send pictures without sending via email, you can download yahoo messenger on your blackberry and then you can select send media when talking to a friend and send picture to them through yahoo messenger. This dont help with trying to send to other cell phones, but does allow blackberry and other pda phone users that have yahoo messenger to be albe to send pictures back and forth to each other. Hope this helps some of you.

    As I posted in the other thread, no this does not help. We all know we have yahoo and email, but we want our mms. Are you an AllTel employee or something?

    You can also use BlackBerry Messenger to send pics.

    no im not an alltel employee, i am a alltel customer that is just as upset that my mms messages dont work, however complaining about the service not working doesnt solve anything, so i offered what i knew that others might not have known to help with sending media until they get it fixed, i thought this forum was about helping each other?

    I have an 8330 through Alltel and my mms messaging works perfectly. My sister has an 8130 thru Alltel and her picture messaging works as well, so maybe it is just a problem in your particular service area.

    You will only have to worry about this issue you are having for a few more months. Verizon has bought Alltel and Verizon has MMS for the BB so this problem will resolve itself when the official switch is made to the Alltel customers.

    I dont have the Alltel OS, i have ntelos os 4.3.0.127 platform 3.1.0.73, i have also ran verizon and us cellular 4.3.0.97 and dont have it as an option on any of those OS.. i decided to stay with the 4.3.0.127 for now, cause it gives me almost twice the free file amount.

    The new 8330 with Alltel does have MMS picture messaging, they just don't have it for the Pearl yet...so only half bullox



    And Jason, switching to another carriers OS will never give you the MMS capability because you also need to be provisioned for it by your carrier(I believe via service books)........so we just wait.......impatiently......come on Alltel

    Of course now that they are being bought out by Verizon, I hope they don't get a who cares, we're outa here kind of attitude when it comes to updates and customer service.....
