Problem uploading pics to twitter.

A while ago I could upload pictures to twitter with my blackberry 8900, but later I couldn't, I also can upload photos to facebook, send it by e-mail, etc... But twitter always says: "Twitter services are currently unavailable Do you want to retry?" And if I retry appears the same message. It just happens when I want to upload a picture, because I can still post tweets.

 

Thanks

Re: Problem uploading pics to twitter.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!!

I suggest the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 1 and 2 each should result in a message coming to your BB...please wait for that before proceeding to the next step):

1) Register HRT

  • KB00510 How to register a BlackBerry smartphone with the wireless network
  • Please wait for one "registration" message to arrive to your Messages app

2) Resend Service Books

  • KB02830 Send the service books for the BlackBerry Internet Service
  • Please wait for "Activation" Messages, one per already configured email account, to arrive in your Messages. If you have no already configured email accounts, please wait 1 hour.

3) Batt Pull Reboot

  • Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.

Hopefully that will get things going again for you! If not, then you should contact your mobile service provider for formal support.

Good luck!

Re: Problem uploading pics to twitter.

Hello from Italy.

 

Blackberry 8900, firmware 5.0.0.1067, "official" Twitter 3.1.0.20

Same problem: I can tweet "plain text" but no pictures.

I bypassed this issue via PicMix, however.

 

I've tried suggestions 1) 2) and 3) (the problem is present even with firmware 5.0.0.1036, BTW).
