    Pictures > Select Picture > Menu > Beam thru the IR Port or Send Via Bluetooth.

    If you send a text message, press the right soft button > Insert > Picture.

    That should do it.

    Then you want to use MMS. It is a slight modification to Tom's procedure:

    Pictures > Select Picture > Menu > Send > MMS.

    If you go to Start > Messages > MMS > New, when you open it up there should be a box within the email that says "Insert Picture" and under that "Insert Audio". If you don't see either of these boxes, you may have an issue.

    I think there may be some confusion with the lingo. When you say "Text Message", do you mean SMS? If yes, then that is the problem. SMS (Short Message Servince) was only meant for sending text. MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) was created to add pictures and sound. While some phones and pda blur the lines between the two, the Q seems to be adhering to them.

    Picture via text??


    So if they don't support MMS, is there no way to send pics through text on the Q, then?

    Go to: start: messaging: you should see MMS there. click on that, and you should be good to go.

    But they can't. Sprint/Alltel doesn't allow pics to be attached to a text message. Bottom line is that sucks, but its the way it is.

    Yes, its different. Beaming is the function that it uses, and its just like the really really old palm pilots (i have the m100) so its not nearly as new as bluetooth.
