ok this is a horrible setup with tmo/bb i jus cancelled data plan 2 days ago.. lost phone and jus got a new one.... sooo it was w/o data plan ... tried to mms text... no such option anywhere... figured after reading all the posts about mms and data plans... i decided to turn on the data plan and send service books... and tomorrow i will cancel the data plan again to see if this mms option will stay.. oh yea once i turned data plan on the mms option magically deliciously appeared... sooo ill report back tomorrow after i cancel data plan once again if the mms option stays or will vanish.... cross your fingures all that dont have/want/cant get data plan..............
i dont mean to be repeating a topic... but no one haS actually stepped out and confirmed that you have to have data plan for mms to work and maybe i jus need to hit the wall myself to know "wow its made out of brick" but yerp u HAVE to have data plan to mms and i think that is totally retarded i will definetly complain to where ever i can.... suppose to be a smartphone how can i not send photos w/o data plan meanwhile my dumbarse brothers razor can and no data plan period there.... backwards...... and hints on the best places for me to complain to that might get results? figure i goto blackberry.com and tmo.... and others ket me know please.... thx =*(
ok i got some kinda good news..... i cancelled the data plan today... sent a mms txt worked fine!!! they got it and all.... told them to send back.... thats the problem cant get it nothing comes thru... so i guess its half ok now... ima try to play with it some more to figure this out... maybe ill get it to recieve some how... cross your fingers all....
I'm a little "boggled" here.
Not trying to be rude or anything.
You're upset because you can't send "data" without having the "data" plan?
I mean, I know we could say "technically" texts are data as well but they are classified differently.
If you just want to text, why not use the "sms" text? you don't need data plan for that.
I'm just a little confused. Honestly not trying to start anything.
no not data... when u buy the txt msg plan it says text and picture msgs... my whole family plan can send pics but me... jus because the bbpearl uses data to send pics... how dumb does it look if my bros razr can send pics but my pearl which cost 150 more cant... we r all on same plan... now u get what im saying?
MMS will NOT work without a data plan. Blackberry model is just locked that way.
BB data plan does NOT include MSS messages. Sometimes they include a text messaging package, but will not include MMS.
I have the data plan for $19.99 AND have unlimited text/mss for another $14.99 (but for family plan $19.99 gets your entire family unlimited text/mms good deal). That appears to be the only way to solve the problem. Don't think you're going to get out of buying the data plan if you want mms, sorry. =\
