    mms

    I am lost with this MMS I don't see this on my phone I see SMS but to send pictures I need the MMS? what do I do about this is this something I have to call sprint about [

    quote=SDMahan;5326]Here are 3 ways that I have found to send MMS messages:

    Option 1:
    Go into contacts, highlight a contact with a mobile phone number, press the right softkey (menu), and you should see an option to Send MMS.

    Option 2:
    Open messaging, select the MMS account, press the left softkey (new), fill in the necessary fields and press the left softkey (send).

    Option 3:
    Open Pictures & Videos, highlight the picture you want to send, press the right softkey (menu), choose send, select the MMS account, fill in the necessary fields and press the left softkey (send).[/quote]

    so does that mean, sprint & alltel customers (with no MMS capabilities) are out of luck when it comes to sending pictures???
    there's gotta be another way...

    I have verizon and was told by customer service that with my phone, if I was to receive a picture message, the phone would use the internet to access it. Since I don't have any internet plan, it would cost around a dollar every time I got a picture message. Not sure if its the same thing when sending them. I haven't sent one yet because of this. I'll probably end up getting the $25 plan though.

    I wonder how it would work with the recent "unlimited text/IM/PIX/FLIX" plan.
