Problems with picture messaging
I just changed from an 8830 to a Curve 8330, I love it but here is my problem.
When someone sends me a picture message I get this message:
Could not retrieve message content. Try again later.

What is this all about, I have a txt and Pix plan on Verizon. HELP!
Looks like there is no real fix to this
here is a link with some STACKERS with similar problems
“There's nothing that cleanses your soul like getting the hell kicked out of you.”
So what is the point of having a phone capable of receiving pix messages if you can"t get them. Was on the phone with Verizon for an hour and then they wanted me to do a wipe of my system and I declined! There has to be a solution to this!
I would def try to these few things
1. Register your Host Routing Table
Options>Advanced Options>Host Routing Table>BB Menu Key>Register Now
Options>Mobile Network>BB Menu Key>Start Provisioning
3. Battery Pull -
4. Wait an hour or so and see if you can Download the Pics then, could all just be a carrier issue not a phone issue.

Similar prob w/ pics
I'm having a similar problem w/ picture messaging. I have a Pearl 8100, & ATT told me that it didn't automatically come w/ the mms software preloaded on the phone. They said the only way to get it would be to pay an extra $30 a month to get the unlimited web browsing, and the software would then download to my phone. Has anybody found a way around this w/out getting the web package?
Also, when I bluetooth pics to other nonblackberry phones, it says file too big to open. Any advice?
I'm on Verizon and I have web browsing and it still does NOT work.
