    Hi Everyone, so I just bought a bb pearl off ebay last week and in the last two days have become addicted to it my problem is though i can't send picture messages or figure out how to send picture messages on my pearl. I don't have a data plan for my bb i use it as a regular phone because i share the plan with my boyfriend and its expensive but can i still send and recieve picture messages without the bb data plan? I was able to do it on my razr with our unlimited messaging plan. Please help!!!!!!! very frustrated. Thanks!

    It should say Compose MMS. For instance, if I go to my messages folder, press menu, then I can choose Compose MMS. If you don't see this, you should take it up with AT&T.

    AT&T may not support MMS, Sprint doesn't.

    AT&T does have MMS. Sprint, Alltel, and Telus completely block MMS. Verizon only allows MMS on BBs that have a camera.

    hey jna0121 when i had my motorola krzr i could do any kind of message even go on messenger without having a data plan but now that i have the blackberry you have to have the data plan to use messenger. T-Mobile has a free blackberry add on so that you can send and recives pic's (MMS) if you dont want to pay 20 bucks for the data plan. you might wanna call cingular and ask them about that add on.

    This is really frustrating i have a feeling it won't be that easy though because when i switched to my boyfriends plan thre months ago from t-mobile I wanted to get the blackberry but at&t said i had to buy the data plan with it no exceptions and i didn't really want all that so i bought it off ebay figuring i could use it the same as i do my razor with no problems but i am learning now its not that easy. I have a feeling at&t is going to tell me i need to add a data plan and i don't want to do that 1 because i don't need all those features and 2 because its his plan. This stinks

    Did you call AT&T regarding the issue yet? You might have to ask for the BB feature enabler.

    No MMS, rofl. That is some crazy stuff. I'm glad I'm with AT&T!
