    Updating OS to get MMS Message Option.

    Advertisement



    Right now, I'm with Alltel and haven't loaded anything on my 8130. I've seen posts about loading a different carrier's OS onto any phone by deleting the vender file; but I'm more concerned with will it actually give me the option to send a MMS message, even though Alltel isn't supporting it right now. I've got the data plan and unlimited text and all that stuff. If this is possible, what carrier's OS should I go with? Thanks yall.

    Unfortunately the other poster is correct. If you carrier doesn't support it then you cannot send them. It comes down the the network level and what they have in place to transmit those messages. Even if you use another carriers OS you will still not have the option since Alltel doesn't support it.

    Ah, oh well. Thanks for telling me and not letting me waste about an hour and a half of my time.

    I have Alltel and was told that the next os upgrade should make mms work for BB users. I just spoke with them about this on Saturday.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Azstar! I remember you from another thread about the MMS problem. Did they happen to tell you when to expect the new OS?
