My Device: Torch 9800


hey guys,

just got a torch 9800 and i see that i can send picture messages through email, bbm and bluetooth, but i see no option for "text messaging" a picture as all other phones are capable of.

can anyone tell me how to do this? also, i recieve picture messages and am redirected to my carrier website to an oline album to open it- i dont see the name of the sender or the picture, only a link for the photo, how can i see the message on my phone as a text message?

greatly appreciate the hel[

Re: MMS?

1. Look for MMS. "Send file (or picture) as MMS".

SMS = Text only

MMS = Multimedia Message Service.


2. Who is your service provider? Some carriers use MMS differently than others, maintaining the image sent on their servers until requested to download (minimizing bandwidth used).
