Not difficult at all.
Not difficult, however I get really frustrated when the carriers (mainly Sprint and Alltel) say "there's no MMS, but you can just send a picture via email. Same thing!" Well, on Alltel, at least, it's not the same thing. One of the great things about MMS is that you can send a pic or video to a phone. But if I try to send it to a phone via the @message.alltel.com address, Alltel's servers strip the pic or video out of the message.
My point is - I agree with the OP because sending pics via email is not a replacement for MMS. Why providers like Cingy and Verizon can manage to make it happen and Sprint and Alltel can't is beyond me. Actually, Alltel just put out its first smartphone with MMS - the HTC 6800 - so I assumed the Pearl, which comes out in a couple weeks, would have it too. No go, unfortunately.
