    Unlocked Pearl - still no MMS on Cingular

    Advertisement



    Any ideas folks? I've got a unlock Pearl on cingular. I gave up on it while we "waited" for Cingular to get their Pearl...now they have it but I still don't have MMS - just that blasted red x.

    I've got the right data plans and settings according to cingular. I've deleted and resent service books til I'm blue in the face.

    Ideas?

    I honestly am not sure but I like you also did not wait for cingular to crap out the ulgy brother to the pearl. I also have the data plan and cannot send MMS. From what I understand is you need MEdia net to send MMS. I do not understand why that is. I talked to a couple cingular representatives and they have yet to give me a definate answer. So I guess this is what we get for having crappy cingular ... D:

    Re: Unlocked Pearl - still no MMS on Cingular

    I have a unlocked TMobile Pearl running on Cingular. Initially MMS wasn't working but after inputting these settings under Options>Advanced Options>TCP lo and behold it works!
    APN: wap.cingular <--- lower case
    Username for APN: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM <--- ALL CAPS!
    Password for APN: CINGULAR1 <--- ALL CAPS!

    Let me know if it works for you!

    I was thinking that cingular doesn't support mms on the BIS plan because they want it to be paid for separately. I dunno. Doesn't work for me. I've had those settings. I tried again and still no. Maybe because I'm sending it to another bb? Will try to send to a non-bb user tomorrow and see if it works. I sent to hubbys cingular email and a different one to cell number. Both *X* out on me. Are you in message app and going >menu>compose new mms ? Just to make sure I'm in the right place? All the multi-media mess I've sent have all been bb mess.

    I have the BIS unlimited plan.
    Initially I couldn't rcv or send an mms to someone else nor could I send an mms to myself. After the changes I can now send an mms (text only or with a picture) to myself. Haven't tried to send to someone else but I assume it will work as well. And yes, from message app I access menu>compose mms.

    Re: Unlocked Pearl - still no MMS on Cingular

    lpvp, Welcome to PinStack.

    I just got my Pearl from Cingular yesterday. And the news is, although I don't have the MMS activated on my account (cheap me), I have the MMS service book and in the Options, I have settings for MMS. Cingular is now apparently provisioning the MMS for the Pearl. And I haven't even changed the TCP Settings. Haven't tried using MMS yet.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.

    Ok...so my question is - Does anyone have a Cingular Pearl that sends MMS? And if so, what is the damn difference?

    Mms On Cingular Pearl Confirmed

    Well, It cost me some money, but I can confirm that the Cingular MMS actually works. I just sent an MMS with a picture from my Pearl to my Pearl.

    Confirmed

    Re: Unlocked Pearl - still no MMS on Cingular

    Thank you! Send me the bill. No one at Cingular seems to be able to figure this out....so with your information, it seems that there must be some difference between even an unlocked Pearl and a Cingular Pearl.

    Re: Unlocked Pearl - still no MMS on Cingular

    It May have to do with the OS or with the Cingular BIS System recognizing the IMEI/PIN as being authorized the MMS service books. I don't know, but it kinda makes sense.

    Re: Unlocked Pearl - still no MMS on Cingular

    I also am having trouble sending/receiving MMS on my pearl. I just got it up and running after reloading the OS. I can send/rec sms, use the browser, media net, email everything BUT MMS.

    I have the proper wap settings... probably something small...

    Thanks...

    Re: Unlocked Pearl - still no MMS on Cingular

    MickPick, Do you have the MMS service books? Was this a TMO Pearl, or an Cingular Branded Pearl? I just noticed that my TCP settings were already set to the Cingular settings. This is different from the 8700, which were always Blank by default.

    Re: Unlocked Pearl - still no MMS on Cingular

    It is a Cingular pearl, I did however have to reload the os and I used Rogers since cw didn't have the file available. I can browse and send sms. I'm not sure where the MMS settings in the pearl are,

    Mine are under Options/MMS Also check Options/Advanced Options/Service Books to see if you have the MMS Service books.
