    Data plan ?'s for T-mo

    Advertisement



    Hey all,

    I know that w/o a data plan, the messenger programs that use data wont work, but if I take text messages off my plan, and add a data plan, is there a way to send MMS w/o being charged? (I'm thinking through BBmessenger there might be a way, but I'd rather know instead of just do it) Thanks!!

    I'm thinking you could attach the file to an email and use the providers gateway, or perhaps check Google for Email to MMS. Though I'm not sure if any of those Email to MMS sites are free to use.

    T-Mobile: phonenumber@tmomail.net
    Virgin Mobile: phonenumber@vmobl.com
    Cingular: phonenumber@cingularme.com
    Sprint: phonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com
    Verizon: phonenumber@vtext.com
    Nextel: phonenumber@messaging.nextel.com

    Welcome to the stacks!
    BBmessenger is a chat program (like aim, msn, icq..etc.) that only works on blackberries...although you can send files with it though (to other bb's). an mms is and mms so i believe you will need messages on your plan. I'm not sure how t-mobile is but my data plan includes something like 1500 sms/mms's. Someone that has t-mo will come around to help soon.

    you know you dont need a data plan for tmobile to recieve mms messages any more. you just have to call and ask them to put the free blackbery feature enabler on your plan. then you can get you sms/mms/ and access tzones free. (you wont get email or browser)

    Just to be clear --- Enabler will NOT allow you to receive SMS/MMS "FREE". It will allow you to use IM services such as AIM and YAHOO but if you do not want to pay for each message you need to add a text package. TMO is offering UNLIMTED SMS/MMS for $9.99 right now if you have a myfaves plan.
