Default Cant receive pic in text message

Please Login to Remove!

I can receive a text just fine from my wifes Razr to my Pearl. When she adds a attachment w/picture into it, it never goes through to my BB for some reason. Can you send pics from a razr to a BB via text message? I dont have the net, so I cant email it. We can BT ringtones & pics to and from each other just fine. Any suggestions?

Um... a text message is only text. Hence the name text message.

A message with a picture or audio attached is MMS (Multi-Media) or email. If she's composing a txt msg and attaching an image, it's an MMS. Often MMS msgs are incompatible between carriers and phones. Has she tried sending the picture via MMS instead of text?

You should also be able to transfer via bluetooth. Enable BT. Go to media, pictures, and do Menu->Receive using bluetooth.

P.S. Welcome to the forums!
