Default Can't Receive Pictures - 7105t, T-Mobile

Please Login to Remove!

I don't have a data plan from T-mobile, just voice and SMS and the regular cell stuff. Whenever someone sends me a picture I never get it. It can be an SMS message with a picture in it or an email sent to the mobile email address (number@tmomail.net). All text messages and emails come through just fine, but if there is a picture it's like it was never sent. Even if there is text with the picture, nothing at all comes through. If I swap the SIM card into my Motorola cell phone all of the pending pictures come right through.

Can anybody tell me why my little Blackberry doesn't get these? I'm a total BB newbie, so any input is appreciated!

Thanks,
Ryan

I know if you get the BB internet plan from Tmobile you get a tmail account aht lets you get MMS photos and such.Tmomail doesnt allow you to get them.

You must have a data plan to get MMS to BlackBerries with T-mobile.

Also the address will be @tmo.blackberry.net you can choose a username when you sign into email for the first time.

I also have the same problem.. When someone sends me a picture to my blackberry via SMS...It gives me a link to tmobilepictures or something of that sort... They must use MMS? in order to send me a picture directly to my Berry?

I do have the unlimited BB plan.

You can receive pictures with tmomail...like I said if I plug the SIM into my Motorola handset I right away get all of the picture messages that were sent to me (to @tmomail.net) that never came through on the Blackberry.

Any other thoughts? Seems very weird, but maybe a simple setting...

Thanks!

That's because the blackberry address is tmo.blackberry.net not tmomail.net.

Here's a breakdown of all tmobile email addresses:

@tmomail.net-regular phones
@tmail.com (don't know why LOL)-Sidekick 2
@tmo.blackberry.net-BlackBerry devices
