    How to get Service books for MMS on blackberry?

    Advertisement



    Long story short for now I won't any BES service from Cingular, I want to have MMS/data working on my phone, it says "Data Connection Refused" where "Cingular" usually is supposed to be on the Alpha Tag in the front screen.

    I have an unlocked white 8801 Pearl from T-Mobile with the latest .73 OS from Cingular.

    There are no service books, i tried online at mycingular.blackberry.com to register but it doesnt work it gives me an error I can't even sign up for an account.......

    What other options do I have to get service books on the blackberry? Data Cable? Bluetooth from another phone? etc? Any other options? MMS / Data is controlled from the service book area and I can't edit manually???

    Kayos72 is right. Unless you sign up for a data plan you won't be able to get the service books. There's no hack or work around on this either. Everything is controlled by your carrier.

    If you want the "Data connection refused" to go away, just turn off the data services. It disappears after that.

    Yea, sorry man. I know it's a crock of Sh*t. The sales reps should be telling you this when you purchase the BB. Some reps just don't even know. But MMS requires a data plan.

    Hey I have a Blackberry Plan with TMO that includes data and unlimited texts, yet it doesn't include MMS. So i have to add it for 5 bucks. UGH!!!

    Sorry for the bad news.
