Default 8700c - How to send MMS on here.

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know how to compose and MMS on my BlackBerry 8700c?

https://cingular.atgnow.com/cng/tutorials/KB59365.html

The link shows you how to do it, but I don't have that application on my 8700c. Any ideas?

Cingular has not activiated MMS yet as they claim to not have the billing system in place for it. 8700 is capable but the carrier is not right now.

Well, I downloaded this and installed it into my BB without a problem. The device rebooted. A new menu item "SMS and MMS Messages" appeared. and an Xpress Messaging icon. I sent a picture attached via MMS to my girl's BB 7290 (with Xpress installed) and she got it no problem. I will be playing with this more today. My only concern with Cingular is the incursion of additional fees.

Actually this seems to be using the mobile email (or other email) to send the messages with attachments. The only useful thing I can see is the option to show delivery confirmatio as in PIN messaging.

Let us know if you can check your online bill and see fees. Are you Orange or Blue?

Xpress Messaging has nothing to do with MMS. It is a seperate application that requires an add-on feature with a monthly fee. It gives delivery and read receipts to other XM or Interactive Messaging Plus users (aka RIM 950/957 w/Cingular now Velocita Wireless).
