Can't send pictures!!

I don't know why, but when I try to forward, send any text message or email to another email where it has an picture attached, it's not being sent, I received pictures, text messages, emails, but if I try to forward them or send any of my pictures to any email address, it doesn't send!! I just tested texting one picture to myself and it worked!!
Does anyone know why this is happening??

Thank you for all your attention!!

    I have a Blackberry 8310 and also can't sent pictures via email. I have done a hard reset, and re-registered on the network as suggested, and it still doesn't work. I have also made sure the browser push settings are enabled.

    Anyone have any other suggestions? It's a new phone, and it has not ever been able to send a picture via email.

First, try performing a hard reset: remove the battery from the BlackBerry while it is still powered on. Leave it out for 30 seconds, then reinsert.

If that doesn't work you might try re-registering on the network. Go to Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Table. Highlight a table, press the menu key, then select Register now.

Also, make sure that Browser Push is enabled. Go to Options > Advanced Options > Browser Push and make sure Enable Push, Enable MDS Push and Enable WAP Push are enabled.

it depends on what provider you have. ive heard that for sprint, if you have a data plan, you can get pic. mail. On the sending it, your sms is actually an email. if you text your email, it will give you your sms email address. you just have to send the picture text to the persons sms email

Have a blackberry 7520 and I am using it on boost mobile unlimited but I can't get web access or text message how do I get internet access?


yes there is a way.
download "opera mini" (you can google it for download sites) for internet access. however u cannot download anything OTA (over the air) from websites.

as far as texting... the device does not support texting with boost.
there are several ways around this..

you can try a free messaging program (one such as "RAMBLE IM" to use AOL IM).
i used to use this and just send messages to peoples phone numbers that i had saved on my buddylist. (EX: +15552223333)
-OR-
you can download "GMAIL" which is google email and send emails to peoples cell phone numbers. every cell phone number comes with an email.. for example to send a text to a VERIZON customer u would send the email to 5552223333@vtext.com and they would just reply to it and u would get it. however, they wont see ur phone number it would show up as ur email account u set up with google mail. another however is that gmail doesnt inform u on ur handset when u receive an email u have to manually check it and refresh it but if u go to ur google email account using a computer u can go to settings/options-> forwarding/pop tab-> and forward all emails to ur phone number@messaging.nextel.com (EX: 5552223333@messaging.nextel.com) now everytime u get an email it will send it to ur handset as well and it will vibrate or ring whatever u have it on and let u know u have a message.

you can google all these programs to download them and put them on ur blackberry thru desktop manager. good luck.

I cant receive picture messages


The problem is that supposedly before you can receive picture messages, you have to send one first. Tell a friend that you are going to test it out on them and send them a picture message. It will take a while for it to go through
Then all the texts that you receive before with the "download' button in them in the place of a picture automatically turn into pictures.
Unfortunately as it stands there is no functionality for saving your MMS pictures directly onto your phone, the only way it can be done is you have to forward the message to your Gmail account, which will then arrive on your phone and from there you should be able to open the email and download the picture. To do so follow these steps
From the Home screen, touch the Applications button.
Touch Messaging.
Touch the message that contains the picture or video.
Press and hold in an empty space in the message.
Touch Forward.
Type a space or other character in the forwarded message (in subject or body of message)
At To, type the e-mail address.
Press the Menu key and touch Send.
Once received in the email this can be saved but the problem is when saved it may save it without a file extension therefore making it unviewable later
This should help and do let me know

Picture Messaging


If your sympton is:

You see a red X with unknown error on your BlackBerry smartphone when sending picture attachments in an email message.
The service books for the email integration are corrupt
To resolve this issue, delete and resend the service books from the BlackBerry® Internet Service or BlackBerry® Enterprise Server.

or

Picture messaging allows the user to send and receive photos to and from their contacts.
Important: The Instant Messenger recipient must be online to send the picture.
To send pictures from your BlackBerry smartphone camera using <Instant Messenger>, complete the following steps:
  1. On the BlackBerry smartphone, preview a picture.
  2. Display the menu and select the Instant Messenger you want to use to send the picture.
  3. Complete the onscreen instructions.
To send a picture from within an Instant Messenger for BlackBerry smartphones application session, complete the following steps:
  1. Within the Instant Messenger session, display the menu and select Send Media. The Which Type dialog appears.
  2. Click Picture. The Pictures folder opens.
  3. Select the picture you want to send. A request is sent to the recipient indicating you sent a file and an option to Accept or Decline the file.
    • If the recipient clicks Accept, the Save File dialog opens. The recipient saves the file on the BlackBerry smartphone.
    • If the recipient clicks Decline, The sender receives a message indication the file transfer was declined.
or

The BlackBerry smartphone user is unable to send a picture as an email message from the Media application of the BlackBerry smartphone. The Send option is not present on the menu when the email message is sent using an email account that is associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Although the current BlackBerry Internet Service supports large attachments or attachments that are in their native format, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.0 does not.
A BlackBerry smartphone that is provisioned with the current BlackBerry Internet Service uses it as the default method for sending pictures from the camera. As a result, when attempting to send a picture attachment from an email account that is associated with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, the Send option will be missing from the menu as the image is in native format and size.

Upgrade the BlackBerry Enterprise Server to software version 4.1 Service Pack 2 or later, since support for large attachments or attachments that are in their native format has been introduced in that version.

Follow the steps below to send the picture attachment from the Messages application on the BlackBerry smartphone:
  1. Select Messages on the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone.
  2. Press the Menu key.
  3. Select the Compose Email option from the menu.
  4. In the To field, enter the contact address where the email message is to be sent.
  5. Press the Menu key again.
  6. Select the Attach File option from the menu.
  7. Browse to and select the picture to be attached to the email message.
  8. Send the email message.

That all depends on your service provider. Most Q's cannot send picture messages but you can send email with attachments. So if your service provider doesnt offer picture messages with the q then all you can do is email them to others.
