Default A couple of quick questions...

Please Login to Remove!

1. Whenever I receive a picture/other form of media in a text message, it tells me to go to Is there any way to keep it from doing that?

2. How do I send picture messages without using Bluetooth?

3. Is there a way to show someone's phone number on the address book without clicking their name, just like the sim phone book?

Thank you in advance.

1. That is an MMS message and that is how AT&T (and other carriers) handle them, by loading them to a server for your retrieval. You could ask the sending party to email you?

2. From the 8100, you should be able to MMS yourself (Message Folder > Menu > Compose MMS, or Compose Email and attach file.

3. I don't understand. The contact's phone numbers won't visible unless you click on. If you go to Phone Dial screen, you can type in the name and the numbers associated with that name should appear as you type the name.
