Default Can anyone send MMS messages with Sprint 8330?

Please Login to Remove!

I am thinking about going out a get the sprint BB 8330. I wanted to make sure I am still able to take pictures and send them out as MMS to other people. I currently have the Sprint/Nextel IC902. Can anyone verify this?

Um...... I cannot do MMS messaging with either of my Sprint devices..... Sprint doesn't support MMS on a BlackBerry device - unless this changed with the 8330.

Juwaack, it doesn't load to the Sprint photo site and you send from there?

I thought I had read of users sending MMS and it actually sends the link from the Sprint site? If I am wrong, certainly correct me.

From the Sprint site, maybe (I believe there is a workaround here somewhere).

But I have no option from the device for Send MMS. Only Send SMS Text.

Talking yes you can send MMS

you can send mms messages through sprint blackberry's to other phone the only thing you need is there picture mail email address and it will send it their phone. so when you are sending a picture from your phone to theirs as an email just write their adress in this format [email address] i think thats the correct format...its either sprintpcs or just sprint, if thats not it then tell me and i will get the correct answer......i work at a store
