Default MMS on 9800 on T-Mobile

Please Login to Remove!

Are there any Torch users out there on T-Mobile USA that has MMS working? I cannot figure out how.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm wondering if its because T-Mobile MMS requires a data plan. I just noticed that Google Maps does not work on EDGE. Crap. Going to have to sell the Torch. I didn't think that it would be this crippled. I should have known better.

Google Maps works on EDGE but you do need a BB data plan

Yes, MMS on any BlackBerry requires the BlackBerry Data Plan.

So I just got off the phone with T-Mobile and everything is fully provisioned with a Blackberry Data Plan. I am NOT able to Facebook (EDGE or Wifi), MMS or Browse (on EDGE).

Anyone have any suggestions?

You should be able too! Could be a service book issue

Since the 9800 is on OS 6, TMO may not have the correct/compatible ones.

It works, I have my 9800 unlocked and running everything except VVM. Follow the steps below.

Oh and one more thing, I was able to load the service books using DM6. Worked.

Once you are done, send the phone an MMS, this seemed to be required for the service to become active on the phone. Then reply away, and click on the paper clip to attach. You MUST be on the reply field for the paperclip to appear.
