What carrier are you on and what is your OS version? Look in Options >About on the 3rd line down.

Look at Options > About, third line down beginning with a "v.4.xxx"
What is yours?

You should probably upgrade your OS to the latest. I can't guarantee it will fix this problem but it may.
The thread below has a download link for the OS, just download it, then install it to your PC. Follow the instructions EXACTLY as outlined in the first post and you should have a successful upgrade.

I had this problem with my BB Curve 8530 the second day I got it. I couldnt receive picture mail & I couldnt send it. I called Metro PCS & they transfered me over to a BlackBerry Tech that helped me out alot! He said that my phone was never even contected to the BlackBerry network. But he gave me some codes to put in my phone, then told me to cut my phone off and that fixed all my problems
