Default Alltel 8830 - Cant Send Picture Messages

Please Login to Remove!

I just picked up the 8830 through alltel, and I somewhat understand how the messaging works. I cant send picture messages unless they are in an email, and they send out to regular email address's just fine. My problem is that when I try to send them to another cell phone (example- [email address]) they get sent, but its just a bunch of garbage and the picture doesnt go through.

Am I doing something wrong?

Your not doing anything wrong, but alltel does not support picture messaging yet on smartphones. The only choice you have is to send them via email. I have heard that they will be changing this soon though.
