You can only view pics if they are saved as attachments on emails. most blackberry's (Actually i think all) do not accept MMS.

the new 8700's support mms, but other than that you can only view them with your browser or in email.

Thanks for clarifying. I kinda left that unclear. Cy is correct. you cannot view a mms picture directly on your device that is sent from say...a razr.

maybe if the person sending the picture sent it to your email address, as opposed to entering your phone number, not sure though

Nah. It has to be saved as .jpg or some compatible format. My GF tried to send me a pic the other day by MMS to my email address. I couldnt open it.

Now I am confused, RIM states that the 7130e can handle mms messaging, but you guys are saying that it doesn't work? I've never tried it before, but now I am determined to find out...

MMS is a carrier-dependent allowance on the device.

my T-Mo 7105t and its predecessor, the 7100t, both allowed MMS (via Service Books) following the 4.0 upgrade. this feature is still available using the HKCSL4.1 as well.

i can receive MMS-sent pics from any handset using Cing and T-Mo, being sent directly to my MIN. i can even send an MMS directly from my handset, from within the PhotoAlbum or even the straightforward "Compose MMS" menu option within Messages.

the limitations are, again, imposed by your carrier. SprintPCS and VZW traditionally use a very awkward messaging system (separate from voice technologies) that may not translate well onto BB services. i don't have many friends that avail themselves of CDMA wireless services, so my penkberry has yet to attempt MMS acceptance by yellow or red.

as for what RIM may state as handset capabilities, carriers historically limit full functionality, most notably Cing and VZW.

call your carrier's Care line for support.
