Default So because the 8830 isn't a camera phone...

I can't receive MMS (i.e. pictures) messages, even from the same carrier (Alltel)? This is so retarted!

You should contact your carrier
My guess is it would be the same as activating a SIM card for use with MMS

it works for me on verizon, however, you have to access the mms from a verizon website. I hate having to do it mainly because you can't save any pictures sent to you.

What I did was download the GMail application, and have all my friends send the pictures to my GMail account so that I can view them that way.

Alltel might have MMS disabled for 8830s, Verizon disables MMS for all it's non-camera Blackberrys. It is only enabled for the 8130 and 8330. Same may be the case with Alltel.

On Sprint I get a text message with a clickable link to download the photo. Not as simple as just getting an email attachement, but it works for me.
