    It's too bad. I heard it was because they couldn't get the BBs to work with their pictures online service. I don't really care about that. Standalone MMS would be just fine by me.

    Here are the ways many of our users send pictures.

    1) Attach it to an email
    2) Attach it to an email and send it to the persons phone email address
    3) Send it using BB Messenger
    4) Send it using Yahoo Messenger
    5) Send it using AOL Instant Messenger
    6) Bluetooth directly to the recipient
    7) Bluetooth to another phone and mms it to the recipient
    8) Send the image to a photo uploading site and send the link to the recipient
    9) Plug in the BB to a pc using mass mode and do the same as above from your pc
    10) Print the picture and put it in an envelope and send it via USPS, DHL, FedEx or UPS to the recipient

    You can clearly see sprint is not stopping you from sending pics, they are just not giving you the option you want, however are giving you many, many, many other options.

    Re: Will 8130 receive MMS option?

    I'm actually a Sprint in-store technician & I just ordered the 8130 for myself. Now I have not seen 1 person come in complaining about not having MMS because I think most people just assume when they get a bb thru SprintNextel, they don't expect to be able to do MMS. Most people I have come in with bb's or to buy bb's are businessmen/women. I rarely see a teenager or any1 for that matter get a bb for multimedia reasons. Most go for the Windows Mobile devices or Treo's. I personally would LOVE to see a MMS hack for the Pearl though, cuz I got 1 on my Mogul & I know I'm gonna miss it.

    It never occured to me that it *wouldn't* have MMS. The Pearl is a more consumer oriented device... and I do know that the device itself supports it.

    Pardonnez mon français - what the f**k is the point of having this amazing 2.0 MP camera and video recording capabilities if you can't MMS ? I am soooooo mad at sprint about this and the inability of my Pearl to play . avi vids or any video format other than 3GP or mp4

    None of the Sprint pda phones come with mms out of the box, Ive always wondered why. My pearl plays avi, just needs to be converted correctly using superc, my favorite converter.
