    Thanks for your response and I asked a wireless rep. who told me since this is an AT&T phone and I have T Mobile then that is the problem. Something to do with AT&T not allowing it or some reason like that.

    If that's the problem, is that suppose to happen on all phones? because I had a Sony Ericsson and picture text messaging was fine.

Hi Brad,

I apologize for the delayed response - you may have already resolved this, but here's a quick update anyway.

Based on the issue that you're describing, it sounds like there's a fairly good chance that Text Messaging and/or Multimedia Messaging may not be properly provisioned on your wireless account.

To resolve this, you'll likely need to contact Customer Service and check to see whether you have SMS or MMS features listed on your account and what those features cover. (If the services are listed on your account, check to see whether the services are pay-per-use or bundled.)

Let us know whether or not you were able to resolve the issue!

    Interesting... thanks for the update Brad!

    SMS and MMS travel over a different range of frequency from standard voice communications, but it's not AT&T-specific bandwidth. One of my friends used an unlocked AT&T BlackJack II for a while with his T-Mobile SIM, and I'm pretty sure that he was able to using messaging functionality - I'll touch base and see what I can find.

    Out of curiosity, do you have a data plan? You might consider creating/configuring two connections in Settings > Connections > GPRS. Take a look at the connections outlined near the top of the page at

    After adding these connections, make sure that T-Mobile has you setup for a messaging plan and give it another shot. I'd be surprised if T-Mobile turned down a request for additional monthly charges just to keep you from using an AT&T phone, so at the very least they should be able to add a texting/multimedia package and let you give it a try.

    If you have the interest/time to complete the process above we'd definitely be interested to hear how things go!

    Thanks again,

Hi ! Every time I try to send a text message, it appears Memory full! Close some applications and try again.I did erase my pics as well as those file saved in my memory card, but it still hopeless. It's 3...

Go your message setting. There is option where you'll save your message and choose save to memory card.
Delete all message in inbox and outbox folder, delete all cache in your browser and close all active applications. Try to send text message.
If the notification "Memory full" still appear you must uninstall a one or more application (not just close it but uninstall it) to make some space in your phone memory. Choose application that you don't use the most.
If the problem persist, format your phone back to factory setting.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.
