Default MMS not working for blackberry torch 9800

Please Login to Remove!

I have a blackberry torch 9800, and everytime i try and send an attachment (picture) The paper clip icon is blanked out. I've tried going to text message optons, but it says i can only send a picture through "facebook,bluetooth,Ext." It says nothing about MMS. So my question is, how can i send a picture to one of my friends?

Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan?
Are your other data features working properly?

You didn't answer the question. Do you have a BlackBerry data plan?

Text is a phone and carrier thing, totally separate from BB data. MMS requires BB data by most carriers, hence dc's question.

You can send pictures via email or Bluetooth as well.

Not true push e-mail (BIS or BES). You may be able to do some web e-mail. But that's it.
