Problems with BB Curve 9360, can't text photos, etc

Hello,

 

I got my BB Curve 9360 for Xmas, and got it all set up and it was working fine....loved it.  However, about 3 weeks ago, I suddenly could no longer text photos.  This strange thing occurred at the same time my wifi router broke and was replaced in my house and also I got a new car and added the BB to my Bluetooth on my car.  Both things happened the same day, and suddenly I can't send photos....and I've been messing with the phone ever since.  Also, my device seems to freeze up an awful lot, too, which it never did prior.

Anyone care to take a crack at this?  I would be eternally grateful to have this annoying problem solved.

Thanks in advance!


Cally

Hi and Welcome to the Community!!

I suggest the following steps, in order, even if they seem redundant to what you have already tried (steps 1 and 2 each should result in a message coming to your BB...please wait for that before proceeding to the next step):

1) Register HRT

  • KB00510 How to register a BlackBerry smartphone with the wireless network
  • Please wait for one "registration" message to arrive to your Messages app

2) Resend Service Books

  • KB02830 Send the service books for the BlackBerry Internet Service
  • Please wait for "Activation" Messages, one per already configured email account, to arrive in your Messages. If you have no already configured email accounts, please wait 1 hour.

3) Batt Pull Reboot

  • Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.

Hopefully that will get things going again for you! If not, then you should contact your mobile service provider for formal support regarding your inability to send MMS.

Good luck!

Hello,

 

"still"??? This is your first report in this thread...did I miss something?


allshewrote wrote:

Well, what you stated is merely step 3 of the 3-step process listed above...did you perhaps consider doing all 3 steps, in sequence, as intended?

 

Further, at the end of that post is the statement:

  • "If not, then you should contact your mobile service provider for formal support regarding your inability to send MMS."

Good luck!
