    gamorrisiii, If I haven't already done so, let me welcome you to the Stacks. I haven't heard anything recently about their plans for this. I know a lot of BB users are waiting. You might want to call Cingular CS and ask, just to log your desires. The more calls they get, the higher it might get on the "To Do" list, but I doubt it.

    Again, Welcome

    Thanks for the welcome. I have talked to cingular cs about this they told me they are working on it for the 8700 but if I would like to trade in I could get the 7290C that supports MMS but I lose the keyboard. They are stull working on the service books for the 8700

    I think they meant the 7130, not the 7290. THe 7290 has a similar keyboard to the 8700, and I'm pretty sure it is not MMS capable due to memory/processor capabililties.

    hope this helps.

    Cut to the chase and "bite the bullet". Just go to TMobile and get the 8700g with the unlimited data plan $14.95/single and $19.95 for the family.......I did and I am LOVING IT!! Also better reception at least in the Atlanta area!!

    Am I reading you right. This must be an extremely new BB data plan pricing structure. I've never seen a price for an unlimited family Data Plan?

    And it includes SMS/MMS for that price?

    Color me confused. I have a 7130c with Cingular and the $45.00 BES/unlimited plan. I can send and receive MMS no problem. I think I pay a few extra bucks each month for the MMS, but it's nothing outrageous. I'd be shocked if there was MMS for the 7130 and not the 8700. Is this true?

    Erica, read his post again,
    with the unlimited data plan $14.95/single and $19.95 for the family
    The plan you linked to is an unlimited message plan. I was trying to prevent misconceptions, due to terminology error.

    Spamdumpster, It is true the Cingular 8700 doesn't have the MMS option for some reason, maybe the OS as they haven't updated since the original. It was originally reported to be due to problems integrating the MMS into the Billing with BBs. I imagine it was a little of both and for the 7130 the got the billing correct and the New OS is capable so the activated MMS on those accounts.

    Garrison, The BB Data Plan on Cingular, Does Not include SMS messages, you will need to add a separate SMS feature, or pay the $0.10 per message fee.

    Hope this helps

    I have a former cingular plan, since Digicel has taken over their plans (here in the caribbean and have to say it not bad, except the signal strength is not as good
