    Would it help if you bought a media card?

    bb8100(Pearl) can only play MPEG4 Part 2 Simple Profile encoded video. There are several third party converters that can convert a wide variety of video formats to blackberry compatible video

    I just read several similar threads on other Blackberry related sites and most claim that mms messaging is not possible on the curve. On Blackberry's company site however, they state that the 8130 is capable of taking video and should therefor be completely mms capable.


    not sure if this is the same for the 8100...

    Re: How can I play videos on my bb8100?

    this is from one of the threads i was reading:
    Can't receive video messages, or can't view the video? The Curve is capable of playing videos, but they have to be the correct format. According to RIM;

    The following Video formats are supported:

    MPEG-4 Part 2 - Simple Profile + bvops (including DivX files in this format)
    H.263 Profile 0 and Profile 3
    WMV 9 Simple Profile Video Decoder

    The following Video file extensions are also supported:

    .avi containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
    .mov containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
    .3gp containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
    .mp4 containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
    .m4v containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
    .mpg containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263

    If you can't receive the MMS, do you have a data plan? A data plan is required for MMS.
    hope it helps
