How to enable MMS on unlocked phone
Hey guys, I kinda have a situation. I bought an unlocked t-mobile 8100 but I have my ATT sim card in it. Today I upgraded to have data internet use so I can send and recieve MMS. The only problem is I can't find how to do it on the t-mobile phone. I ended up going to ATT and looked at the help guides, but nowhere on my phone I can find MMS enable or anything. I would deeply appreciate it if someone could help me with this problem.
Also If I have a t-mobile phone unlocked with ATT sim, what software download should I install on my phone, ATT or T-mobile?
Hi Moslikk< You need the Service books form AT&T, do you have a data plan with them? if you don't you neeed one to get the Service books. Also on TMO the MMS uses a portion of the Data NW, it wasn't till last quarter of last year that you could do MMS for free on a BB on TMO. ( Other then Standard MMS charges)
THe SW for the hand set is not as critical, I have used TIM Italy Software, And Cingular Software on My TMO Pearl. SO it is up to you.

Spelling doesn’t determine your I.Q.
If you dont have the service books and you are using a 8100 on AT&T I have the service books on my phone. If you would like to try my books then drop me a line on private message with your email addy. I'll send a backup of my service books to you.
Since they have the service books issue covered...make sure you send yourself a picture TWICE before sending to other people.
I sent you a pm kolosus but I forgot to include my email. Now it's not letting me send you another one because I don't have 10 post, so I'll just put it here.
Since he has a data plan there is no need. He can send his own.

Well then if you don't have a Blackberry Plan then there is no way you can send yourself the Service books.
You can get them from where ever, but if you loose them you're going to have to go search for them all over again.
Aren't service books unique to every sim card/phone?
I tried switching sim cards from two different 8100's and send myself the service books then switch back the sim card/phone. After a while the service books revert back to the original numbers!
They are unique to your account. Depending on the services of your carrier and the provisions that are tied to your account every one will have it a bit different. Especially if you have different carriers.
There isn't really any point in loading some one else's books, since at anytime your books could go missing and then you're SOL and searching for them again. While if you have a data plan, you can just sign into your BIS account and send them.
