    Sending a picture in an SMS

    Advertisement



    Is it possible to send a picture text with the Pearl? I can't seem to find out how, other than through email which I don't pay for, yet.

    Try to send one to yourself. That should answer your question. But make sure to send to your phone number. and let us know how it goes.

    Hmm, yeah there is no option for MMS. When I bring up options in Messages there is only "Compose E-Mail, Compose PIN, Compose SMS, and Place Call." When I compose an SMS there are no options to add pictures or anything.

    After snapping a picture there is an option to send the picture and it brings up a list of contacts, but since I don't have the data service yet (I might change my plan this afternoon, still deciding) it doesn't show anyone in my contacts and I don't think I can even make any.

    After you save the pic, go to it and click your trackwheel or ball. And choose send as MMS. This should take you to your address book. Then chose your own number or chose the "use once" option. And see if it works that way.

    You should be able to goto the picture you wish to send by going to media and then pictures. The picture menu has a send via mms option.

    I think you should be able to send mms without internet (you can even send and receive voice thru mms)

    It looks like I don't get MMS. When I go to my pictures and open the options the only send option it gives is Bluetooth and Messanger Contacts.

    This wouldn't be something that was updated in the new OS would it? I have it downloaded but haven't been able to successfully update yet.

    Also, thanks for all the help. Might be another good reason to shell out a couple more bucks for the data service.

    Open the picture under "Media" first. Once the picture is open the "Send As MMS) option is in the menu.

    I'm betting without the data plan the service book hasn't been pushed Down to your pearl.
    Try going to the t-zones on your phone and send your service books to yourself. Without a data plan you might have to call your provider but try this first.

    I actually went in to a T-Mobile outlet on my lunch break and they helped me out, I had the option hidden somehow and they fixed me up. Thanks much for all the replies.

    MMS service books only appear AFTER registering with a BB Data Plan.

    If not BDP, then it may be possible for your carrier to push those, but they are definitely NOT automatic without a data plan.
