Default MMS just doesn't send attachments !!!

Please Login to Remove!


The MMS via Orange UK is not working on both of my handsets!!! Why???

I have tried to send numerous MMS messages with attachments all to no avail.
The tech guys have had me downsize my image size from large-medium-small. They have checked the security firewall. We have battery pulled both 8900's. And still NADA!!! This has been through GPRS with good signal. I am however able to send text messages via mms though? Just not with attachments for some reason?

This evening with UMA via wi-fi i was able to send 2 MMS messages with attachments and then it went kaput again.

A 2nd tier tech guy from Orange phoned me and notified me that BB are aware of a problem and have issued a simple statement saying as much with regards MMS and my problems experienced.

He is escalting it further with RIM themselves for an answer soon.

Anyone else experience this or is it only my 2 8900's??

BTW im on OS .101 and the other is on OS .168 ...

Of course I'm not on Orange but from what you say they know it's the network. It's almost always the network when MMS fails to send pix especially if you could do it at some point and now you can't. It's happened to Tmobile. I called the tech and he was having me swap the sim cards in my 2 BBs and do all kinds of stuff and then I found out Tmob had a problem all over, in fact my friend called when I did and they told her that right away.
