A few factors could cause this. Does anything come through when a message is sent. Do you get any error messages from this. Are you able to send picture messages?

I cant figure out how to send or receive mms on my blackberry pearl 8100


To send, When you select from sending an email, scroll down to MMS. To receive, your email server has to be programmed to your phone. Takes just a minute.

Blackberry pearl 8100 wont let me email pics


Assuming you have an 8100 pearl I believe for some reason this phone does not do mms. either that or the following is true.

With certain wireless providers a BB data plan may be required for MMS to function. For example, T-Mobile has a $0.00 feature that can be added to a persons account to enable MMS (which is included in messaging packages) without enabling full data capabilities. I believe Alltel offers a similiar feature. Contrastingly, ATT BB's cannot send or receive MMS without the $30, minimum, BB data feature being on the account. I'm waiting for a class action suit against ATT for taking subscribers money for messaging packages, that include picture messaging, but not providing all of the services being paid for by some PDA phone users.

I can mms or email


You don't need to e-mail to your computer. Install Blackberry Desktop to your computer. The current version can be downloaded at blackberry.com. Using the enclosed usb cable or if your computer has a bluetooth transmitter, Your computer will asign a drive letter to the Pearl and you can drag and drop photos from your phone into your computer.

With Media Sync, you can transfer playlists from Itunes to your phone.

With Media Manager, you can transfer videos to your phone.

The latter two will work if your phone has a ultra sd card installed into it.

Here is a link to check the features, download the software, or to get a manual.

Photo messages


On most phones, the problem usually is with settings. You should contact your provider and ask them to go through the MMS settings with you to make sure that the phone is correctly receiving and sending the MMS signals.

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.

  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.

    • 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.

Blackberry Pearl and View my Message


that is because you have mms settings not working, call the phone provider tech support phone and get assistance in setting mms server on your phone, so that you do not need using the tedious viewmymessage.com website anymore.
