    Re: Not receiving picture messages

    try sending one to your self.
    that always works for me.

    also when you going to send it, do it in this format ...
    (1) (area code) (number)

    do you have the internet ftr? without it you will not be able to send or recieve. If you do see if you are able to access the web. post back and let us know what happens.

    Yea kids Eddie is right you need a data plan. If your with at&t your out of luck if you don't have one. With TMO give them a call and ask about the blackberry enabler.

    Re: Not receiving picture messages

    I'm with t-mobile and what it basiclly comes down to is that you have to call them and they have to switch something on the computer to say that your phone is able to recieve mms, if you don't call you can't recieve it, the best way to do this is ( if you're with t-mobile) is when the automated thing asks you what it can help you with, just say Blackberry and when the guy comes on tell him you need to enable recieving of picture messages, you'd think this kind of thing would be automatic but unfourtunatly it's not. I hope this helps

    on new activations it is now but kinda hard to automaticallly update 25 million peoples accounts at the same time. But yeah call TMO and they can add the enabler free of charge.

    Re: Not receiving picture messages

    I do not have a media package through AT&T but I could access the interent if I wanted but it would just cost for every kilobyte. When I had my RAZR I could send and receive pictures and I didnt have the internet package either. Unless I'm missing something, the only way I can send a picture on my pearl is through bluetoth?

    yes, you can send pics thru bt - and that is about it without a data plan. blackberry works differently than a razr. you need service books to tell your phone what 'provisions' it has...without the data plan, there is no way to receive the service books, hence, no MMS service book...sorry.
