    Your phone isnt being recognised as an MMS capable phone no your wireless network. Usually sending yourself a picture message will resolve this issue

    the website is an online picture album for non MMS capable phones. Sending yourself an MMS usually works. Your next option would be to call Tmobile and have them reset your network settings and try again.

    resend your service books then do a batt pull when you reboot go to options mobile network turn network off save and exit wait about 60 sec turn network back on register on TMO network, send MMS/picture msg to yourself...see if that works! if it still does not work try loading Tzones whether it works or not call TMO they have to set you up it might be something on their end!

    work for orange, its because you don't have mms provisioned on your account speak to your network operator who can add it for you, you'll just receive a network message, no amount of service books or battery pulls will make it work

    This happened to me as well. Yet changing your email and SMS/mms inboxes to separate not combined and then send TWO pictures to your self. It worked for me. Good luck.

    Sending yourself first picture message told the network that your phone is MMS capable. Send yourself another picture message and you should receive it right this time.

    Call your provider, ask them to enable MMS. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN MMS PLAN.

    Maybe your APN settings need to be changed, check out the list here and find the right ones for your carrier

    You're on PAYG, but do they have the data plan available too with your carrier? If not, then you won't be able to send or receive email or go on the internet unless you're on a Wi-Fi connection, which would allow you to surf the net. If you do, then I'd try to resend the service books as this seems to be affecting connectivity and MMS. Options > Advanced > Host Routing Table and tell it to re-register. Follow Azstar's advice too and check under Options > Advanced > TCP/IP and check your APN settings.
