    Picture Messaging

    Advertisement



    So ive already gone through THREE 8100's for different reasons. Im determined not to give up on this phone, the last time i exchanged my phone was because i could not Send OR Receive Picture Messages. the guy at Tmobile said that even though my Plan says i can send and receive pics...THIS PITICULAR phone just doesnt have that feature unless your signed up for internet use. any truth to that being the reason why i cant send an MMS?

    Do you have a data plan? I've heard, that if you don't have a data plan, there is no MMS...

    No BlackBerry comes out-of-box provisioned with all or most of the service books it requires to provide the user with services.

    Unfortunately for MMS, this service book is not native to the BlackBerry. The only way to get the MMS service book is to register with a BIS and have the service book for MMS pushed upon activation.

    But for that to happen, you MUST have a BlackBerry Data Plan.

    I would suggest getting the Plan, activating and therefore getting the required service book, then cancel the Plan immediately.

    However, I have a feeling that won't work either. MMS on ANY wireless device uses GPRS/EDGE to send the message, whereas SMS uses only GSM.

    On a BlackBerry, without a BlackBerry Data Plan, the network will refuse your device any & all data connections. Thereby rendering MMS inuseable, even if it does have the BlackBerry Data Plan.

    Up until the Pearl, this has never been a problem: A - because BlackBerry didn't really have anything useful to do with MMS (no camera, no voice recorder, etc.); B - just about anyone who used a BlackBerry has a BlackBerry Data Plan.

    The way the MMS / GSM / BlackBerry / carrier data system works, I really wouldn't hope for any solution to this grey phenomenon, likely ever.

    Correction:

    Without a BlackBerry Data Plan MMS won't work even if the BlackBerry has the required MMS Service Books (I mistakenly wrote BlackBerry Data Plan instead of Service Books above).

    Re: Picture Messaging

    Your phone has to make a gprs data connection everytime an mms message is sent or recieved, as soon as you cancel a data service it then cancels your ability to do that.

    I have an unlocked 8100 and use Cingular. I have the BlackBerry personal data plan and am unable to send or receive MMS. It sounds like this is a big issue for many BlackBerry users.

    Crowley777, Welcome to PinStack.

    In your case, it's more like a big issue for Cingular users. Cingular does not support MMS or allow MMS messaging on any BB device except possibly the 7130c. Don't know why, but they just haven't implememted it yet.

    Re: Picture Messaging

    I still cant recieve picture messages, it says "cannot recive content now try later" and then it never comes through. I called Tmobile and they say it is my roaming company although with my Nokia 6133 and my other pearl I could recieve messages fine.
