Sorry, what you are describing is not possible. There is no MMS on the VZW 8830. SMS doesn't support attachments, and that is the only way for you communicate with another phone unless that phone has email.

Well, in theory, the 8830 can do MMS messages, but Verizon has chosen to not allow MMS messages on devices that don't have a camera (send or receive). I'm not sure if this is true for Bell or Sprint versions of the 8830?

no need to ridicule anyone, should we go back and search your posts?

How are you able to send MMS messages? I have been trying to do it for the longest time. I have the latest Sprint OS, but I still do not have the option to send MMS messages. I can send e-mails with picture attachments only.

From what I read, Verizon disabled this feature on the 8830. To date, I have been unable to find a thread or further information that explains how to enable MMS. It's not a huge problem to not have MMS, but I was just curious and it would be a nice feature to enable.

thanks...i appreciate the support. It seems like everyone I know can send pictures in their text messages. When they do this, its considered MMS? Or is it still SMS?

TIA

d5coupe--a SMS (text) message with a picture attached, becomes a MMS message.

If it were another BB device you were sending to, you could send it via BBMessenger.

And, you can attach to an email from the BB. Compose email, attach file, select and send. You can send to another cell phone if you know that carrier's extension, such as TMobile becomes [email address]. You just need to know the carrier's mail suffix.

when my friend text messages a pic to my email address it comes up [email address]

but when i reply, he never gets my response. So what would the email address be for a verizon phone#?

Thanks!

Have you searched for that? Google?

I only suggest that, since you've been around here quite a long time...
