Hey guys, as most pearl users realized quick, without a data plan you're out of luck with MMS. Well here's an easy way to have MMS without paying for a Data plan or downloading Mobilkom Austria [A1] 188.8.131.52 which includes the service books. Here goes:
Call your provider, go through all the stuff til you talk to a person. Tell them you want to turn on your pay per usage or go to the providers website and use the customer support chat and have them enable your pay per usage. This step doesn't take long.
Next: Go online and enable the Blackberry personal plan. It's like 30 dollars, it doesn't matter as long as you turn on a blackberry plan. Once you add this feature pull your battery for a few seconds and put it back in. Once your phone comes on you should have EDGE in the corner and all the icons for internet use will appear, you will also have a MMS option under SMS now. Once it's on, go back online and remove the Blackberry data plan feature.
You will now have the service books on the phone as well as the pay per usage to enable enough internet to send/receive msgs. If you have a messaging plan you should not be charged for any picture msgs. I never have. Hope this helps everyone. If you need farther help ask. I just did it again with my new Pearl so I know it works.
