    I guess my phone is unlocked, I can use it for everything but sending and receiving pic messages. I am with At&t and they tell me that my phone is defective and that I should get another one sent to me. I think they are just trying to not deal with me. After having a computer programmer who works for my company mess with it, I can finally access the internet but i still cannot get or send pic messages. Please help. thank you

Welcome to Fixya. The reason why you can't use the internet or receive a picture message is because you need to save the GPRS and MMS settings of T-mobile on your phone. For the settings you need to contact the so that they can provide you the right settings like the APN the HTTP link and other settings. after you have save the settings you will be able to use the internet on your phone and will be able to send and receive MMS.

Picture messaging

what kind of sim card are you using in it now? in order to receive send pictures (other than bluetooth) you need a sim card. and if you have an att sim card in it and it is not letting you send receive picture mail, your internet is off. (we call this WAP in the industry). The easy fix:

Call ATT if you are using it on the ATT network and tell them to have the internet pay per use turned on. Then you will be able to receive MMS messages.
