So is anyone getting any closer to finding out how to do this? I'd pay for this hack lol.
it's been real quiet in this thread so my guess is no... honestly i wasn't expecting good news.
oh well that sucks
I have the ArcSoft software installed on my Q, and I have the failure mode where when I select new pix, and it'll crash the UI and create a blank message in drafts.
there's a way to create a custom UI, but its been pretty hard finding documentation to that end. im sure theres a SDK for the software, and with that i'm confident (read: really hopeful) that we may have a snowball's chance in hell to get MMS working on the Q and Q9c.
MMS Additions on Sprint
I called them about that when I realized the Q9C wouldn't send picture mail (I seem to receive it just fine though, what's that about)... Sprint told me that with the Windows-based phones, Windows doesn't have access to the MMS applications - but then again if Verizon can make it work why can't Sprint.
(Just a rant, I'm not terribly tech savvy so I don't really have a work-around. The one thing I did try was to email myself a picture (from my verizon acct to the sprint mail using the string firstname.lastname@example.org or whatever the hell it is... What happens is that I then receive a picture mail, when I open the full link I have access (via internet) to forward it to other people. I think it works but I'm not totally sure)
When you pay this much for a phone, however, it shouldn't be this hard.
Until this is figured out here is a "ghetto" work around I saw in another thread. You will have to know the other person's phone carrier and set this up maybe as an email address in contacts for faster texting:
Replace Carrier name with person's phone number and add rest. Send via text. 1 issue with Sprint and maybe other carriers, text comes as Unknown sender.
(I.e. Bob is 555-555-4444
for Sprint: email@example.com - send text)
Verizon @vtext.com (text)
Verizon @vzwpix.com (pictures)
US Cellular @email.uscc.net (text)
US Cellular @mms.uscc.net (pictures)
yup been posted here a few months back :wink:
but how would you insert the picture in the text message? on sprint q9c, the option is greyed out which is why a workout around was needed.
its an email not a text
ah, i get it now.
looks like for sprint picture mail, the address is @pm.sprint.com.
I just tried this and it works! from the gmail account i have set up on my q9, i sent an email to 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. the recipient (me in this particular case) received a text from "Unknown sender". the body was
This brings up the page with the picture itself and details of sender and time sent. Good stuff!
(@messaging.sprint.com did now work for sending picture)
*edit* this does still involve having a data plan but it's a start and something you can use in a pinch.
I know AT&T's message email is: email@example.com
