    Can I receive picture messages on this phone??

    Advertisement



    I can't seem to open them. It asks if I want to retrieve the message, but the picture won't come up. It seems weird (and frustrating) to me that this phone has a camera but I can't receive picture messages... any help would be appreciated!

    I have the BB data plan... I think... I pay extra every month to have unlimited email and internet...

    PS- I tried IM'ing you on yahoo, in case that's quicker... are you on right now?

    I have tmo and can't receive or send mms messages to sprint only.. Is that what you're trying to do? There's a firmware update coming out on the 13th that will hopefully fix it.

    Re: Can I receive picture messages on this phone??

    Hi, I have the same problem. I'm on t-mobile & get a message to logon onto t-mobilepictures.com to view the picture. When I bring up that website (on the BB), it has a message about using the site, but doesn't have any way to logon. I have to go to my laptop to actually logon & see the picture. I have the BB data plan. Do I need to set some option to allow the pictures to be received in the message itself?
    Thanks!

    try re-sending your service books, or sending a picture to yourself.

    If you need directions on re-sending your service books go here

    usually sending a mms to yurself re-registers you to the network to send and recieve with no issues. also try sending the mms with the 1before the number, sometimes that does the trick.
    the new .103 software for t-mobile will definately do the trick but it has been taken down from t-mobile's site due to some gliches but once it's posted again you can download it.

    You must have the blackberry voice add on that allows you to do thatwithout the days plan. Or you've upgraded to the .103 software

    He saying that you need a BB data plan, or you need to get the Blackberry Enabler. Call 611 and ask for the Enabler feature. It's free and then you can send MMS. Or just get a data plan.
