    Re: MMS & picture text

    So I sent a picture as MMS to my mom's phone (also tmobile) and it tells her to go to her tmobile pictures, like it does when I receive a picture text. That's not a problem.
    Now what if it's someone that doesn't have tmobile... say they have Cricket.
    How are they supposed to get that picture text?

    Can I send an MMS picture message and the person will actually receive the picture to their phone without having to go online?

    Yes you can, as long as you have a data plan if you're with AT&T.

    If you are with TMO you don't need a plan, but you do need the Blackberry Enabler.

    IF TMO is your carrier then just call them up and request to add the blackberry enabler. If you are with AT&T you are out of luck. Because you need to buy a data plan.

    Re: MMS & picture text

    I just called 611 to talk to tmobile and the rep told me I must buy the data plan at $19.95 to be able to receive MMS picture messages.

    Has anybody heard or gotten different?

    they are lying! Try and get to a blackberry tech. I'll find you a link to that thread give me a second.

    EDIT here's the thread : http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...b_users_w.html

    I would just call again and get a smarter CSR. Remember they are just everyday people like you and me doing their jobs. Half of them barely know what a BB is.

    Thumbs up Re: MMS & picture text

    Dude, thanks a million. I justed called 611 again and the girl knew exactly what I was talking about. She added the BB enabler for FREE and said I should be able to send and receive picture messages within an hour or two.

    She said it's a relatively new fix and that alot of people still at tmobile aren't aware of it (although it seems by this time they should be).

    So to anybody who was told you'd need the data plan, just ask for another operator or a manager, and you'll get the add on for free.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Re: MMS & picture text

    I can receive MMS messages, Cingular or AT&T now, but the audio is very low. Even with the volume at its highest I can not hear the audio without using an earphone. Any suggestions?
