My wife got the 8100 red on ATT. They have informed her that she can only send MMS as emails and essentially she needs a BB plan with them.
She can't just do a regular messaging package. These BB plans are expensive for just the purpose she wants, no internet, just SMS and MMS.
I have tried talking to multiple reps, etc. We're about to return the phone.
As I see it, the only option I haven't explored is running my own server for her to attach to.
Am I going down the wrong path? Can I do this? Can I run a BES from my home and have her attach to that to send her SMS/MMS? I think my logic is flawed and I'm uninformed hence why I came here, but if anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it as she really loves the phone and doesn't want to go back to a RAZR (sick of having the same style phone for 2 years).
