    How big an attachment are you trying to send? If it's a picture you took on your device, it's small enough, but if it's something you've uploaded, it could be too big.

    Yeah, what he ^ said! The picture (uploaded, of course) is too big to be sent over the airwaves. There is an app you can use to shrink them down called, you guessed it, ShrinkIt. Here's a direct OTA download link: http://berrycoder.com/shrinkit.jad

    I'm having the same problem. It doesn't matter what size the picture is, the message just sits at the message screen with a red clock image, and refuse to send. I can't receive and pictures either, they never reach my phone.

    Do you have a BlackBerry Data plan?

    I do not, but I do have unlimited SMS and MMS, and I used to be able to send and receive pictures just fine. I'm not sure what happened.

    All the carriers changed their plans, you might want to call them.

    I am kind of having the same problem. But mine will put a red X next to the message. I downloaded the app to shrink the size to whatever, but it still won't send. HELP please. And I do have an unlimited blackberry plan, so thats no issue

    I've tried pics that are small, medium and large. None go through.

    Seems to be a some what common issue with this phone but finding no fixes.

    The carrier has done an audit and noted your blackberry device did not have a data plan. They shut off the feature that controls mms and email, possible a full data block on the line. When you call, they will try to force you to buy a data plan under the "new rules." Do not waste your time and call them if you don't want to pay for data and can live without picture messaging.
