    Question can't receive mms messages

    Advertisement



    Hi all, I'm a new member to pinstack. Lately I have been unable to receive MMS messages on my pearl. In its place, i receive a text message saying "could not retieve content. try again later". It tells me the estimated download size, i.e. size=26k, and gives me an expiry date which is usually 3 days later. I have called Vodafone and they say its a known fault and that blackberry are supposedly creating a fix for this. Does anyone know about this?

    Re: can't receive mms messages

    maybe one of the experts could better explain how to do this but, I was having this same problem not too long ago and it was because I didn't have the MMS servicebook.

    to get it I had to re-register my blackberry on the network by pressing menu>options>advanced options>host routing table and highlighting the entry that was bold and pressing menu and told it to 'Register Now'

    I got a sms message from my provider saying my bb was registered with the network and I went to check my service books by pressing menu>options>advanced options>service book and saw that there were a lot more entries in there now.

    That's what solved my MMS issue.

    I don't know if anyone is still having this problem, but I just spoke with T-Mobile and they said they had to add some package called a Blackberry Data Enabler or something like that. This should allow us to receive MMS messages.

    Justin, can you go into any further detail about your experience with this issue? I too am a T-Mobile customer and my MMS's have been giving me hell! I get empty messages that just say "Class: Personal", messages fail to send. When I delete the service book and resend it that usually only works for a day. Tell me more about your troubles and how you resolved it.

    t-mobile has something called a (blackberry feature enabler) if you dont want to pay for a data plan. the feature is free but you have to call to get it enabled.this will let you send and receive mms.hope this helps.

    What if you are out of the state? Is there any downloadable solution for receiving mms?

    This may not help you, but with Optus in Australia - you need to physically send an MMS message from your BB before MMS is enabled properly. From there on, you can receive MMS messages.

    You could try giving that a go.

    Yeah, with T-mobile, you can get the enabler for free.
    But it doesnt completely guarantee youll always be able to recieve pictures.
    there are more than a handful of times where I get the "class: personal" blank picture message.
    its really annoying!

    I have ATT and can't get SMS or MMS and haven't for quite awhile. I do have PTT for free though. I can't send or receive anything other than BB messenger.

    I have ATT and there is no option to Compose MMS text. I purchased this phone assuming MMS would come standard, since this is a new phone.

    You won't be able to get MMS messages without a Blackberry Plan and the cheapest one that Cingular offers is 39.99...their ripping their customers off. I was really upset about this mishap too.
