You had to sign up for a voice plan with Alltel so you can make phone calls from your phone, right?

Well, did you also sign up with a BlackBerry Data Plan from Alltel do you can use your BlackBerry for e-mail, internet, MMS, and all that other fun stuff?

If you didn't sign up for the data plan... then you won't be able to get MMS messages. BlackBerry devices work differently than other smartphones.

i can browse the wed, text, and all that other stuff but where you go to compose a text or so forth, it doesnt have an option on the phone to compose an MMS.

It's a BlackBerry Data Plan.... and not just a "regular" data plan that you used on your old phone, right?

Was the 8130 brand new, or did you purchase it second-hand?

Does Alltell support MMS on the 8130? (They may not, but I don't know for sure.)

Word on the forums is Alltell does not supprt MMS on the Pearl yet. Perhaps if the Verizon buyout goes through you will get it, but for now you don't have it. That's what I have read here from other Alltell subscribers.

hello,

question, on the 8700g, before my berry crashed i had an MMS option on my messages option even if i havnt yet requested an mms activation from my server... but when i loaded it with the 4.2.1 ver the mms option was gone. when i click the trackwheel, only compose sms,email,pin are the options.

what ver are loaded with mms options on the 8700g if i may ask and what DS ver. would be able to load it to my handheld device?
