I am on telus here in Edmonton and ya what they say is true. The ... BlackBerry Pearl forum
I am on telus here in Edmonton and ya what they say is true. The MMS option is not even on the phone. When you go into messaging and hit the menu button unlike other pearls the menu reads only:compose email, compose PIN, Place a call, compose SMS, Blackberry Messanger.
I know according to even the online Blackberry 8130 interactive guide it shows "compose MMS" in that menu.
however on my TELUS 8130 it is noticeably absent. This may be a software upgrade at some point with telus but I am unsure.
at this time I use the Blackberry messenger and e mail only to send pictures.
sucks but "it is what it is!"
yea mms is a carrier function. if they want to disable it then they can do that. it is crappy but its the way it works
I bought the Fave 35 which specifically includes "unlimited picture and video messaging" If they have disabled MMS then what am I getting with this feature?? Sending to an email address only is not what this is supposed to mean - correct me if I'm wrong.

I have no problems with my pearl 8130 from Telus , I have the unlimited email 15$ and unlimited data 15 $ so there is your 30$ there , just signed up with Telus and no problems with MMS but keep in mind that SMS is an old technology and email is a better replacement due to you will always get the mail whereas SMS you can never retrieve it from any provider service . / unless you get a court order \ and email you can send bigger files , so if your running into issues with mms tell the person on the receiving end they need a more up to date phone
I hope this helps

Thats interesting - I assume your $15 unlimited email and $15 unlimited data refers to one of the two $30 data plans ('Add-ons') for the smartphones. If thats the case, the only thing different is unlimited browsing and applications between you plan and mine.
However, I think I must still have to tweak a setting somewhere, because I dont even get the 'Compose MMS' menu selection either in the messaging application or the media application.
Like I said - I would prefer to be able and receive MMS directly from cell to cell but I only get the URL to go to to pick up the MMS message for receiving and have to go through the MMS email gateway on sending. Kludgy.
Thank you very much for your assistance - so it does appear the MMS is supported by Telus.
Yeah man ill ask my friend what you can do , he works at a Telus support centre in toronto

if you actually sign into my telus mobility you will see at the bottom of the page check photo messages. then click preferences forward messages, check enable forwarding messages. forward location. then type in ur email and add it to the list
And it automatically forwards your image to you in the form of an email. no snap site to go to.
Hope this helps
Contacted e-Care regaridng this
Got a message back from their Customer Care dept to my inquiry about this
Thank you for your e-mail regarding the Multi Media Messaging feature. We are pleased to assist you.
TELUS PDA and Blackberry devices are not compatible with our SPARK services, such as My Inbox, picture messaging (MMS), ringtones, images, games, and Mobile TV/Radio/Music, as they do not have a compatible web browser. Instead, PDA and Blackberry devices have an internet browser, similar to one
found on a PC.
Whatever they mean by "compatible browser" ??
Hope this helps
It is the same way on sprint. They just don't enable mms messaging on their pda's I think its just a cmda thing =\ ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
its actually a service book thing. i used to have bell and none of their blackberries would do MMS then one day i had a new icon on my screen for downloads and mms worked after that. i had to manually resend my service books to enable it. on carriers like rogers because gsm has had the picture enabled blackberries for longer, they already had service books that would charge you according to your plan. for now u could send it as an email to telus phones its (ten digit $)@mms.telusmobility.com. For CDMA providers u just need to be patient for your service books to be available which will enable the compose mms option onto your phones.
when I'm goog I'm good so very good but when I'm bad I'm even better!
