    Hey Fellow CrackBerry users,
    I just bought a 8830 WE blackberry and I've figured most things out from all the helpful people on this forum
    A couple of questions:
    How do i send an MMS message on Verizon on the 8830 We, since its not a camera phone it makes me go to VZWpix.com to recieve them correct?

    Also, I need to be able to use accented characters in SMS messages. I know how to roll the trackwheel for and the other french characters in an email, but that doesnt work for SMS messages. Is there something i am doing wrong?

    Thanks
    Rick

    I got the same phone and I never have problems sending or receiving mms msgs. I never went to VZW anything. For the accents I never use them for sms ppl can usually figure it out(with Spanish anyway)

    Verizon disabled MMS on the 8830 World edition. No camera no MMS. Everything goes to vzwpix. You can send pics in email & have everyone send you pics in email. Hope this helps.

    I think its such a load of bull for a carrier to restrict a customer from sending or receiving MMS just because a particular BB device does not have a camera. This should have been a customers decision as he or she's the one that's paying the bill at the end of the day.
