Kind of a bummer....
Verizon doesn't enable the MMS feature of the Blackberry.
Right now, if a VZW customer (non BB) sends a "Picture Message" to anyone in the network they will recieve it unless the recipient is a BB user. BB users get an SMS (text) message that tells you to go to the VZW website and view the picture that was sent to you. We CAN recieve pictures sent via email (as attachemt) or via BB messinger (from pictures gallery only).
It's totally rediculous!!
But true none the less.
If VZW were to ever offer a Pearl or Curve, it will have to re-think that policy. I honestly don't know why they've done this.
