Re: sending pictures

Go to the camera and View Pictures. Go to the picture you want to send, open up the menu and press Send as MMS. It will then open up your address book and allow you to send it as an MMS.

On some CDMA BB's you can only send via email or messenger, so if the recipient has an email address great, do they?

Hmm.. alright. I dont have the 8130 or 4.3 so I cant guarentee any of this but try this:

 

Go to messages>Menu>Compose MMS

 

Is there that option for you? 

 

NOTE: If you have Telus or Sprint, they block MMS on the Blackberry 8130.

By email? Try this.
1) Open your Pictures in your Media folder, then open My Pictures
2) highlight a picture, hit the Application key and scroll down to Send As Email
3)your email program will open with your picture in the Subject line and a cursor in the "To"
4)hit the key for the letter of the person you want and a submenu will open with everyone in your address book beginning with that letter
5)highlight the name, push enter, then hit the Application key, another menu will open and then hit Send
It's easier than it sounds.
Don't worry if you only see the person's name. The email address is there if you entered it properly in the address book.

Re: sending pictures

on most cdma devices mms has been isabled from the carrier. what you can do is send the mms to that person as an email using their carrier address for example with t-mobile it would be 1(ten digit mobile nmber)@tmomail.net

 

each carrier has their own address so find out the address and send it that way, hope that helps
