I know from my experience (I am a T-Mobile user) MMS can be very erratic especially when sending to other networks in particular Verizon. There is not much you can do about it. I have people who send me MMS messages send it to my Blackberryxxx8217;s email address instead and that seems to work great. As for sending I usually send via email to my friends devices. I have experienced delays up to 36 hours with MMS but that has been with sending to other carriers. For the most part it does work.

The addon costs nothing and allows your phone to function like a normal device with regard to sending and receiving MMS and accessing t-zones.

I was at the T-Mobile store just right now.. and surprise, it worked while I was there. How dumb. I guess it's more of an on and off problem. I'm trying to do a warranty replacement for my door latch.

I'll call them if I have the problem again, thanks!

Try sending smaller files, say <30K. I know from experience that the bigger the files, the flakier the results.
