    Here's a link to the instructions to put MMS on your Sprint 8830. I have only tested this on my Sprint device, and I am unaware if it will work on any other carrier. Feel free to try it, but you do so at your own risk!

    Thanks for the cleanup. Anyone know how to get SMS messaging for the 8350i ? That would be a great help.

    Thanks for that sr.

    You can send MMS but when you receive them they still get routed through Sprint's stupid Picture Mail service. C'est la vie.

    Aero, SR...

    Since this has apparently worked for Sprint, could this also work for Verizon given that it seems that the only thing holding it back is the gateway address? Example, if the MMS books were taken from an 8330 and loaded onto an 8830

    Possibly, but not necessarily. You would have to test with the appropriate Verizon service book records.

    .... I don't think that having the MMS service books are enough, because in general, carrier provisioning is also required to enable additional features.

    Aero, SR...

    It looks like SR may be right. I have the books on my phone, but none of my MMS messages are going through. Whether it be to an email address or another phone...any other ideas

    please excuse my ignorance but what is MMS as opposed to sms?
    04-22-09 04:40 PM
  15. snison's Avatar
    sms = short message service
    mms = media message service or some say multi-media service

    Anyways, if you have 8830WE v4.5.0.101 or above you don't need the above.

    Umm 8330 like the curve or 8830 World Edition? With the 8830, it doesnt have a camera built in so im pretty sure no MMS
