Default MMS on 7100t w/ 4.0.2

Please Login to Remove!

I *may* be getting a little too excited right now, but here goes... For quite some time, we've known the 7100 to have MMS support, although no one has ever quite found out how to enable it. There has always been a COD file loaded the the handheld for MMS, but I personally never saw any options for MMS and a BlackBerry aside from the BES option to disable the functionality.

With that said, I completely wiped my handheld and reinstalled OS 4.0.2 w/o restoring any data (see below for instructions).

- Verify in Add/Remove Programs that 'BlackBerry v4.0.2 for the 7100 Series Wireless Handheld' is installed on your machine
- Connect your handheld to your Desktop/Laptop
- Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager
* Double-click on Backup and Restore
* Click on Backup and save the file to a safe location
* Click on Close
- Double-click on Application Loader
- Click on Next
- Click on Next (the selected applications should be what you have now; leave these, as the loader will use these same options to reload the OS software)
- Click on Advanced
- Select 'Erase all currently installed applications'; click Next
- Select 'Do not automatically back up and restore the handheld application data during the loading process'; click Next
- Click Finish

This will obviously remove ALL settings, data and 3rd party applications, so be careful of this.

After it came back online, I went into Settings/Options and I now have MMS as an option. I do not remember that option there before.

The options are as follows:

Code:
Multimedia Reception:  Always
Automatic Retrieval:  Home Only
Automatic Retrieval Limit:  No Limit

Notifications:
Allow Delivery Notification (selected)
Allow Read Notification (selected)
Request Delivery Notification
Request Read Notification

Message Filtering:
Reject Anonymous Messages
Reject Advertisements
I now also have the option for Compose MMS in Messages. Very nice!

Anyone else seeing this, or am I just lucky to have stumbled on it? I'm thinking there are some issues with upgrading versus a completely fresh installation of 4.0 to 4.0.2.

Well, now a drawback. When I try to send an MMS, it says "No MMS Service Record, message cannot be sent. You will only be able to Save Draft."

Oh well. Its a start.

Default MMS on 7100t

I did a "register now" thru the host routing table setting a got an MMS service book updated into my list of service books.
I went into my picture album and found that I could send the pictures that I had downloaded onto it to other people. i get the "send as mms" option in the drop down menu.
I tried it and sent a picture to my wife's phone and it work!!!! YEAH!!!!!!

Default MMS on 7100t

i don't see any reason that your roger's bberry can't do the same. Although the MMS service book might be carrier dependent. I'm on T-Mo USA and it's working

I'm guessing they just enabled the service book tonight, then...? I don't know. Oh well, good to hear others are getting it as well.



*Edit: I just rebooted my handheld and now everything is gone... hmm.

Cool this worked. I was able to email myself a MIDI file, and it gave me the option of saving as ringtone. I'm going to try an ADP file soon.

All right, I have the MMS working after a new register, but I was wondering where the MMS charges would apply? Would they be purely data, or would they apply as something else?

okay, someone post up which HRT they are registering to in order to get the MMS on there. I have registered and registered, but I'm not getting the option anymore (since it went away)... :-/

Nevermind. I think my IT Policy screwed with it. I disabled it and now I've got the option.

It is an option, but we also have a service book. My service book says
MMS Config [WAP]

That's what it should say because MMS is data and runs through your carriers WAP Tunnel. Also it doesn't matter which HRT you select it's just a tower, register now re-downloads your carriers PLMN (Tower Listing)...
