Question about Samsung BlackJack II Smartphone

Can't send or receive MMS messages

Phone Info:
Samsung Blackjack II
Phone/PDA version: i617UCGK2
H/W version: REV0.3
Windows Mobile 6 Std. CE OS 5.2.1620 (Build 18125.0.4.2)
Service: AT&T/Cingular

Unable to send MMS (pictures). Text messages work OK. When sending a picture as MMS getting "ERROR: Unable to connect". I have verified all profile settings are correct from the AT&T web site. However, I have other settings such as "Proxy, AT&T WAP" that I'm not entirely certain of.

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

    That's interesting. I have the phone configured for Google email and have been getting around by sending/receiving the pictures as attachments. I thought I already had the PDA data package in order to do this.

    false, i also work for att. i change these features everyday and customer does not have to have the pda package. with blackjacks, this is a major problem and a system issue. a few windows based phones that we carry have this problem. the blackjack 2 is one of the main phones with this issue and even i cant figure this out. and im the techy of the store. im not saying im the professional here but i know this fact.

    I have an original blackjack and I am having problems sending picture messages as well. The only thing I have changed is that I recently added unlimited texts family plan.

I work in TSD for ATT , and from multiple cases like this , customer do not know that ATT requires that all PDA phones do require a PDA data package , without this you will not be allowed to send or receive MMS messages.

My sgh -i607 wont send or recieve mms messages. what do i do?

you need to set it up with the MMS settings. What service do you use? The settings are different depending on T-Mobile, AT&T, etc.

You can call your provider directly, or, you can try to get them done the good way, go to

follow through the prompts, select your carrier, phone model, etc.

then you put in your phone number and the update comes to your phone over the air as a text message.

Good luck! You may want to even program twice, once for MMS or picture messaging, the second for WAP or Internet.

Cant download mms

The settings depend on the network provider of your sim card and whether you are on contract or pay as you go,

Once you have the settings you can input them manually and be sure to activate them as the default profile

AT&T SMS Settings for Unlocked Samsung Blackjack 2

ATT tech support & several web forums confirm that sending a SMS from your computer via an IM, (like Yahoo Messenger,etc.) to a PDA cellular is web based and requires a data plan. However, you can send a text message via email to cellular phones and receive replies. It is easy and just as fast. You have to know the recipients carrier to obtain the proper email address. For instance, to an ATT phone the address is: Remember that most carriers have a character limit (ATT is 160).

See this link for a complete list of other carriers & email addresses-

Samsung Blackjack II Screen Stays Black

I have a solution. Call at&t. they will send you a new one. I have had my phone for 5 months and it happened to me also. There's a warranty on the phone itself that covers it from the day "you" started using it. I bought mine from a friend. Cool!! It should be here in 5 days free shipping.
