| | Metro PCS - two problems with SMS and MMS
Please Login to Remove!
I activated my Metro PCS Blackberry Curve 8330 today. Everything works, except I sent some pictures from my Virgin Mobile phone as MMS to my Blackberry's phone number, but it never received them.
I just sent an email with a picture attachment to the Blackberry from my Gmail address and the Blackberry received it successfully. I am thus forced to conclude that VM USA are once again being idiots and probably blocking me from sending pictures to a number not on their network.
I also tried to set the Blackberry up with my Twitter account. I went through the procedure on the site of adding my new phone number (with the +1 before it) and sent the verification code it generated to 40404. I just received a text back saying that 40404 is not supported or the user has not subscribed to SMS.
How can that be?
Thank you for any info.
