    Question Will 8130 receive MMS option?

    Advertisement



    What do you think? Will Sprint have an update that will allow MMS to work on the 8130? I've read a lot of back and forth from both sides.

    I would assume not. If they do they will charge for it. Although Sprint isnt known for crippling their phones like VZ.

    T- Mo: BB 9700, 8900, 8220
    Sprint: BB 8330, 8830, 8130, 8703, 7250

    But there's a beautiful view of the end of the world from the pier.....

    On all Sprint Windows phones they have a bin file you download that gives you mms, I would say it is very possible with the BB, only time will tell.

    I am so upset about them blocking this I have written a BBB complaint. This is so crazy. RIM builts it in their platform and silly Sprint can't make it work on their network.

    I'm confused. I have the 8130 on Verizon and I have MMS... Is it only blocked on the Sprint 8130?

    Thumbs down Re: Will 8130 receive MMS option?

    Correct, Sprint blocks this because it is not compatiable with there picturemail server. So instead of fixing the problem when they tested the phone a year ago, they ingored it and we are left with no MMS.

    Complaining to the BBB will do nothing at all because Sprint does not block you from sending pictures, they simply do not allow sending mms. There are many other options to send pictures.

    Then please explain the "many" ways to send pictures especially to phones without an internet plan.

    I spoke with a BB tech support mgr on Friday and you cannot send picturemail nor mms from the 8130. The 8130 will not even let you access the picturemail website. You have to use a desktop computer.

    not true....

    im not sure if it will work for all but i actually had this work with my friend and I. He is on att and i have the 8130 with sprint. i had BB support help me setup my sprintpcs.com email to my bb because i didn't know what the password was on that number. I asked my friend to send a picture to me but instead of using my number use my sprint email address (XXXXXX@sprintpcs.com) i was able to view his picture fine but there was a sprint picturemail that linked me to it.. in return i replied to him with an attachment (picture of my car) and he was able to see it fine with no problem... But when i tried to send it to him with out him starting the transaction he was not able to see it..

    Re: Will 8130 receive MMS option?

    I just tried it with a Verizon person and it doesn't work. They are not getting the picture even if I email it to there Verizon picture mail address

    This seems like a big headache. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    The only person I know with ATT has a blackberry. I don't want to test with another blackberry user.

    But the whole thing is crazy. I talked with Sprint Corp. office and they will NOT enable this feature. They don't have any Blackberries or Windows PDA with picturemail. They said if I wanted picturemail switch to the Palm Centro or switch carriers.
