    Sprint and MMS?

    Advertisement



    New user here~ I have recently found out...that my BB 8130 cannot send MMS pictures to anyone other than by email, because Sprint (*#?!!) does not support MMS!! Does anyone know if or when Sprint may finally get on board with this technology? It does not make sense that my older phone with almost no options could at least send picture mail...lol...and now that I have this power phone, I cannot send picture mail...

    Also, is there a way to silence the keypad when dialing phone numbers? I don't like the beeps each time I press the numbers, and have not figured this out yet. There are no sounds when I text.

    Thanks to all who reply

    Im sure you noticed that you can remove the sound in screen\keyboard under options. But it doesnt remove the sound when you dial. I have never taken a look at the before, sorry I can be any help.

    yeah sprint sucks with not having mms. found out after i switched over.
    i know mobile 6 users can use a program called sMMS to send and receive pictures directly to the phone.

    others have said that sprint is going to have that soon. but who knows...

    Not too sure about when Sprint will get MMS. There are a couple of other carriers that don't support MMS yet either.

    I think the beeps you are talking about are only silenced when you put your phone on vibrate or quiet.

    The scoop is that Sprint will have MMS when OS4.5 comes out. Possibly Nov. 2nd. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    You can email the pic to yourself. Your10digitphonenumber@pm.sprint.com. When you receive the link to view your picture. There is an option under the pic to forward. Then you can forward to the phone number of your choice. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
