Re: Not Receiving Pictures on BBM

can you delete & reinstall BBm, but without the contacts backup?

Re: Not Receiving Pictures on BBM

Tried both reboots and neither of them worked. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled BBM but since I have Blackberry Protect it also reinstalls with the contacts.

Re: Not Receiving Pictures on BBM

Under Mobile Network Options make sure Data Services is on. Then open the Text (not BBM) icon and hit the menu button. Go to Options and scroll down--under MMS make sure that Multi-media is set to always. I had problems receiving pics and had done all sorts of resets on my phone till I realized the MMS setting was off.
