Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 Smartphone

Can't send pictures in MMS

Everytime I try to send an MMS picture I get a Red "X" AT&T has now sent me 4 replacement phones. They say the problem is with my phone, and not on their end. I have tried the solutions listed above, but no luck. They are now offering to replace my Blackberry for a different style phone. Basically, they've given up. Does anyone have any ideas???

Thanks,
Roger

    Thank you, I just install a new sims card and had it activated. After 6 hours on the phone with AT&T over the last 3 weeks & 4 different Blackberry phones replaced under warranty, that solved the problem. Thank you so much!

Ok so this really sounds alot like your providers problem, abd despite what you think blackberry's really DONT ****. they are just very difficult to use.

ok first i would like to say that blackberry curve is on of the very first blackberrys capable of sending a mms, also its one of the very first with a camera. so these to places will be kinda patchy at first. and if you search a forum for bb camera wont work believe me you have our hands full.

now to YOUR problem, i want to ask how old your sim card is? people very rarely think of there sim as technology but it is quite the advanced piece acting like an sd card with all kinds of space and security purposes. if your card has been through more than a few phones its time to replace it, also if the card does not have a 3G symbol on it, it will malfunction in selveral ways (mms included).

Second i would like to state that while blocking your "DATA PLAN" or "MEDIA NET" abilities to keep from running up a bill from the net is not a BAD idea it will however limit you from using ANY type of data, (mms included).

these are the main cause of error message upon sending! when you go to replace your card. spell it out to the clerk at a CERTIFIED at&t store and they can take the price of the new sim off of your bill! meaning you pay them upfront but they deduct the amount from your bill, so you pay nothing!

Can get pxt but cant send


1.Take a picture with your cell phone. You can do this by finding the photo function on your cell phone, angling the photo in the manner you would like and pressing down on the "Photo Shoot" button.
2. Find the function on your phone that allows you to send an MMS message. Go to the main menu on your cell phone and tap the MMS button. Follow that by tapping "New." You are now ready to send your MMS picture text message.
3. Type in the email address or telephone number of the person that you want to send the picture text message to. Use your phone's keypad just as you would for a regular text message.
4. Tap the "Add Photo" button on your phone's keypad. You'll find this button as an icon on the main screen of your phone. Another way to add a photo to your phone is to navigate your way to the name of the person you want to send an MMS message to and click on "Add Photo."
5. Click on "Send Message." Your message is then sent and you'll see a receipt on your screen that shows your message has been sent.

this is not really a problem but understanding should be clear:
Multimedia Messaging Service(MMS)

MMS is a descendant of SMS (Short Messaging Service). MMS extends text messaging to include longer text, graphics, photos, audio clips, video clips, or any combination of the above, within certain size limits.

MMS is frequently used to send photos and videos from camera phones to other MMS phones or email accounts. Most camera phones have MMS, but many non-camera phones have it as well.

if it has a photo, video or audio it will automatically be categorize as MMS
While SMS stands for short message service. SMS is also often referred to as texting, sending text messages or text messaging. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. purely text:

When ever am sending a picture message, It says the message queue is full.Try removing items from your pending folder.


Hi, please delete the unsent or sent Pictures messages stored in the Sent items of your phone in order to send more picture messages. When the phone Memory becomes full the phone cannot store anymore picture messages to send. Hence please delete the pictures messages (MMS) in the sent items of Multimedia Message Sent items.

Can't send text w/pictures or open texts with pictures


Hi,

If you want to send message with a picture attached, it means you are sending MMS..To send or recieve MMS you should should have a MMS SETTINGS, think you dont hace MMS setting in your phone.

My advice is ask the operator to send the MMS settings, they may send it through air and save it to your mobile, restart your mobile and you should able to MMS after then...

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance
