BLUETOOTH AND PICTURE MESSAGING

Hey got my BB off amazon (sim free and unlocked) but these too things jus dont work. I enabled the bluetooth, tried to send things and i appear on peoples screens in their bluetooth menu but i can never recieve anything. Same with picture messaging and its starting to annoy me.

 

Anyone know how to fix these two major problems?

 

As i said it was unlocked and sim free then i put my 02 sim in it. I am wondering whether i need to get the 02 settings from the 02 shop put on but i want to make sure before i go into a shop and make a eejit of myself.

Re: BLUETOOTH AND PICTURE MESSAGING

Jane, Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Support Forums.

 

Do you have a BlackBerry Data Plan enabled on your account with your carrier or mobile provider?

You must, in order to get the MMS picture messaging, RIM push email functions, data services such as the internet browser, Facebook for BlackBerry, BlackBerry Messenger, and much more.

So, call your carrier an inquire about having the BlackBerry Data Plan added to your account.

Good luck.

 

You can update your profile here to provide your BlackBerry device model and carrier name, so that when you have a question, that information won't need to be asked up front. Click on My Settings > Personal Information and then SAVE at the bottom of the page.

Carrier = Mobile provider = the company you pay your monthly bill to for your service.

 

i.e., AT&T, Verizon, Vodafone, Rogers, Tmobile.
