    have you tried to send one to yourself, from your pearl?

    i read a few days ago that is the way some of the tmo people got their mms to work...by first sending one to themselves...

    ::edit::
    yes it is true that you need mms service books to be able to send mms and without the data plan, you can't send them yourself. you *might* be able to get a tmo employee to send the mms service books alone. i really can't be for sure, as i am cing/att.

    I think that you should try out what Cherri suggested first, it sound interesting although I've never heard of people doing that.

    If that doesn't work then yes, you would need the data plan in order to send/recieve MMS.

    even with a pic msging plan, you need BIS or BES for data to work on blackberry. basically without a data plan you just have a smart texting device.

    -edit-

    cherri's edit gives the further details.

    My husband is a manager for T-Mobile. He said that it is true that you need the blackberry internet service. When you send a picture message through a blacberry, it sends through the web service.
