Default Best carrier in N. CA for BB Curve WITH MMS messaging???

Please Login to Remove!

So, I made the mistake of purchasing a BB Curve with the Sprint nextwork with the assumtion that MMS would work. Much to my dismay, (as you already know) THEY DON'T OFFER IT FOR BB!!!!! GGRRRR!! Anyways, I am probably going to drop Sprint and go with another server IF I can find one that has good coverage/service record AND offers MMS with the BB Curve(along with an acceptable "everything" price plan). So, tell me people, in your opinions, what carriers do you consider competitive in this range? Thak you in advance for your knowledgable advice!!

Basically, you need to be the one to do some research as you are the only one who knows how and where you will use it. Look at where you live, work, play and travel and pcik the carrier with the best coverage in those places.

TMO has MMS issues. I would say Verizon or ATT. I am in Sacramento and get great coverage on ATT and my son has Verizon. No complaints

Good Luck!

I'm going to recommend either Verizon OR AT&T ... Verizon is known to be a little more pricier then other carriers but they have good reliable service.. haven't had AT&T in a WHILE so I don't know how good they are seem to be pretty competitive with Verizon.. I know Verizon offers an unlimted calling plan for $99.99 per/month... don't know what other features are included in with that besides the unlimited minutes (incoming and outgoing) I know I pay rouughly $147.00 per/month for 2 blackberries unlimited text/pic/video messinging, insurance on both phones, 700 minutes, free nights & weekends...

Thanks everyone... I checked out Verizon and AT&T and found that if I switch to onw of them I would be payin atleast $50/month more for the same services. MMS msging is not worth that much to me. Hopefully Sprint will get thier crap together soon and put out the service book for MMS!!!
