Default Problems Sending Pictures And Videos Between Blackberries Continents Away

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry Bold 9000 on an unlimited Blackberry internet plan with AT&T, and my girlfriend is all the way in Ukraine on business. To avoid excessive roaming charges, she is using their local Blackberry provider MTS, on their Blackberry internet data plan, which is the same plan as here in America (contract required, monthly fee for voice, and flat fee for unlimited internet). Her device is the Blackberry 8900, and for now we are trying to send each others pictures and videos but with little success. Email works perfectly fine, but attaching pictures and videos doesn't seem to work.

This is what I know so far. When I send pictures and videos to her desktop computer in her office in Kiev, she can see them without problem. However, when I try to send her a video clip to her Blackberry device, she cannot see it. On her end, when she tries to send me a picture to my Blackberry address (...@att.blackberry.net), she cannot send the picture. I will have her try to send pictures and video to my desktop computer and see if that will work.

Emails work perfectly well, but so far I think that is all we can do. I know that Blackberry to desktop when I send pictures and video from my Bold 9000 to her office computer works, but so far that is all we can do. Am I mistaken to assume that we can exchange pictures and videos from Blackberry to Blackberry?

No, you can send pictures from BlackBerry to BlackBerry, but MTS may block attachments in order to save bandwidth. This is not unusual for developing countries.

Absolutely! I send them all the time via e-mail, MMS, and BBM.

I've sent video, audio, and images from the US to the UK and India via BBM.

Default Make your day

Try this free app (beats MMS, BBM and email). It allows you to send BIG BIG media files from bb to bb with push technology or from your bb to regular email account. To download the app, point your bb browser to m.youcast.net/blackberry.html

Good Luck!
