    Advertisement



    So i have tha blackberry with the unlimited txt message thing..

    and it says that i get unlimited any type of messages which be theory should include MMS

    but it seems that i cant send or receive MMS... i used the same plan with my old tmo Dash and it worked fine.

    why wont it allow me to send or receive MMS??

    well it wasnt workin..

    Untill i added the plan..

    but see i didnt get tha $20 one

    i found a way to use the $5.99 web plan to work with it.

    but i have TMOBILE... iono if your provider offers one like that


    I THINK ITS DUMB how they make u get tha plan when u already have unlimited MESSAGIN which includes SMS and MMS

    It's just the way BBs work. Blackberrys need service books to provision what they can and can't do. Fortunately TMO allows you to use MMS without a data plan.

    AT&T does not. With them you need a data plan.

    i really hate it when they FORCE you into something you dont wanna pay for. just to be able to send pictures. wish i was told this when i was buying the phone. but no, i got some guy that didnt know anything and told me that the MMS would work with the unlimated text plan. this sucks. sorry to complain. if anyone knows of a way around this....please let me know. thanks in advance.

    sorry you were mislead by the represenitive. Unfortunately it's true with AT&T you need a data plan. I'm not sure about you, but a blackberry without one is only using about 1/3 of it's potential. It's much better with a data plan. I understand sometimes it's not possible, but there really is no work around if you have AT&T.

    Re: Help!! Mms Problem..

    thanks for the info reddog. i honestly dont need everything the BBPEARL has to offer. im off work on comp right now and do not need the exspensive data package that cingular offers since i am next to my laptop all day. got the pearl cause i thought it was a cool phone until i found out that it does next to nothing without the data plan. im actually considering trading it for another cingular phone. i love the phone, just not using it to its full capacity. thanks again for the help.

    yea, Blackberrys aren't for everyone. Sorry for the bad news. If you stick with BBs you will have a home here.

    Re: Help!! Mms Problem..

    I am also having messaging issues. I have sent out test messages through SMS and they've not been received. People have also texted me and I have not received them. We have the data plan and the texting plan.

    Come to think of it, none of my emails have shown up either. I have just sent an email from desktop to Pearl-nothing's coming.

    Suggestions?
