    Unlimited text is different then sending or receiving MMS. Alltel requires a separate fee for MMS.

    emilyanna,
    Do you know what operating system you are running. Unlimited data on Alltel includes the MMS. So it may be you are still running 4.3. Go to options about and check the 3rd line down to check your Operating system version.

    Don't see why it would be different in different regions but I am also on Alltel and it is included in the data package...that's strange.

    I have alltel and the unlimited mms is included in my plan, no separate charge. Maybe depends on your plan and market. Smart choice plans include unlimited MMS/Text/Data

    It depends on where you are I'm in ND and all my messages are in one bundle .... Now back to your question the only way to get MMS is to install the 4.5 OS that's when Alltel enabled MMS on the pearl after that it should send all the info from the servers to your phone ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Well text messaging can be a separate plan but if you have the "All Axcess Pass" plan, that includes MMS. I should have said that the first time and was just making sure the OP didn't just have text messaging only.

    So I'll have to call alltel myself and have them update my version? There isn't something I just have to activate on my phone?

    You can take it to Alltel to update or you can go here and do it yourself online. All I would suggest is that you remove your media card before you start the process. Also another option would be to go here and downloading the update to your PC and using desktop manager to install it. If you have never done this before the first option is the best.
