    Is picture messaging free with the Blackberry plan?

    Advertisement



    I m currently with T mobile and I was wondering if the picture messaging was free.
    I currently pay 20bucks for the blackberry plan plus my minute plan.
    I use 29.99plan with 20extra for blackberry.
    IS picture messaging included with this?

    Kevin, I'm not so sure picture messaging is included. Whenever I send pictures via MMS, I get charged and I have the $89/month enterprise email and minutes plan. You might want to check w/TMO just to be sure otherwise the costs can add up quickly (especially with a camera phone).

    Hmmm, oyu've got my attention man. This is a little strange, because I've been using my phone for sometime and sending pics back and forth and I have never been charged aditional cost other than 19.99

    I hope you're right Pete. Maybe TMO was just messing up my charges a few months ago. Never hurts to make the call just to be sure.

    Pete, have you been sending the pics via email or MMS? If via email = free all the way. My 8700 doesn't allow me to send via email with our current OS.

    I checked with Tmo awhile back on the plan I have, BlackBerry Minutes and Mail. It includes unlimited email, data, and SMS messages. Picture messages or MMS were not included and incur a per message charge.

    However, if you email the pictures you are in the clear...

    There are a couple of plans the Blackberry Unlimited with Mail has unlimited SMS and MMS.

    If you have a voice plan and then the $20 Blackberry unlimited add-on then you have to have a SMS and MMS add-on.

    So if you have:
    MyFavs or Get More with XXX amount of minutes you need the add-on texts and BB unlimited add-on.

    Blackberry Plan you have XXX amount of minutes you have unlimited data and texts.

    It gets real confusing with all the different plans out there. I hope this helps everyone.

    I would check again as I have this same plan and pics ARE included. Just check your online billing and see for yourself. Pics and txt are lumped under the unlimited free txt section.
