| | Can't send High Resolution picture as MMS!!!
Please Login to Remove!
I have been to 3 Cardinals games in the past 2 weeks (go Cards!). At each one I tried to send pictures I took via on the camera using MMS. I have the resolution set to 'Large' and the Quality set to 'Superfine'.
When I try to send the picture, either from the camera screen right after I take it or by actually finding it in 'Media' and sending it from there the BlackBerry shows the 'hourglass' and just sits there. The 'send/receive' arrows don't show up and I waited 10 minutes a couple times with no results. The screen doesn't even dim or anything, but the hourglass spins, so I know it's not completely dead. I can't switch applications (shift+back) or soft power down. The only thing that gets it out of this mode is pulling the battery!!!
Once, I tried decreasing the quality and it did something different, I don't remember what the difference was (couple or so beers at the game), but it still didn't send. I think I was able to back out this way, though. Also, I think it did randomly work one time with the high settings. It was MUCH MUCH more reliable at a lower setting, but I had some problems with that, too.
Anyone else having this problem? More information? Or, dare I ask, a solution???
It is extremely frustrating because I couldn't send these pictures and they were 'once in a lifetime' shots. If there were a way to resize on the fly, that might have worked, too.
Anyway, stay away from this situation if you can. Use lower resolution if you plan on MMSing.
Thanks guys and gals,
