    MMS without data plan

    Advertisement



    hey i just got my phone yesterday and i noticed i can't send MMS with it because it's connected to the 'edge' and not the 'EDGE'
    is this becuase of service in my area or because i am not with the data plan?
    shoulnt there be a way for it to still work since my old phone sent mms over the regular GSM network?

    Re: MMS without data plan

    It is because u are not on a data plan. I called my provider yesterday about the same question. Apparently it doesnt matter if your previous phone had a browser. With a BB, u have to subscribe to a data plan or no internet.

    i *think* your mms doesn't work because you don't have internet and without internet you can't receive service books. you need the service books to send/rec mms. you may be able to call your provider and have them send the service books.

    you could call tmo and have them send you the service book...but not sure if it would work, since you don't have a data plan and i don't know how they send them...someone else will pipe in and let us know. that would be, i think, your only option right now....besides the BT thing...

    you need the blackberry add on i think it bullsh*t cause on my crappy phone i could do without it, so you need the text bundel and the data package with tmo to send mms. I send them email about that everyweek they could atleast give you umlimited text with the blackberry add on that data right? but they dont so i say keep givin them sh*t about it then they will change it

    Re: MMS without data plan

    Yea I agree Kuwest. I think if you have a data plan you should be getting unlimited texts to. Basically I'm paying 25 bucks for data and just 400 SMS and 400 MMS. Not real happy about that. If you need a data plan for MMS with a BB then MMS should be included with it. my 2 cents

    LadyRaider, SMS (Short Messaging Service) is used to send text only messages. MMS (Multi-Media Messaging Service) is used to send multi-media files (JPEG, etc.).

    yeah i'm paying 15 bucks for my unlimited message bundle so either they should give me a discount since im sending SMS only or give me unlimited messages bundled with the data plan
