Sending photos to others' phones

Just want to verify ... it doesn't seem there is any option to send a photo from my blackberry curve to another person's PHONE number. I can only send to an e-mail address or to facebook or to a messenger contact. And then I see the "Send Using Bluetooth," which I'll explore at a later date ...!

 

Can someone confirm I CANNOT send to a phone number OR if I can, HOW?

via MMS, yes. Most carriers provide that service.

 

In the US, for instance, TMobile, AT&T and Verizon do.

 

Sprint is one who does not. Alltel just began doing so this week.

 

Who is your carrier?

Sprint. so i guess that mystery is solved. It's strange because when i had my samsung flip phone (with Sprint), i was able to send photos from the phone to another phone. But the option isn't provided on the blackberry.

Re: Sending photos to others' phones

Just FYI, I have been told that Sprint will be enabling MMS in this coming November. Nothing official from Sprint, but my source as credible.

Re: Sending photos to others' phones

Apparently this problem still exists.

 

I have a BB Curve with Sprint.

 

Sprint claims BB is a computer not a phone.   And didn't care if it could send photos.    Its a BB problem not a Sprint problem.

 

My wife just got a LG Lotus..... It rocks.

 

Does anyone know of a app that will allow a BB to send a photo to another phone?

 

It will send an attachment to an email address or to facebook but not to another phone number..... How **bleep** hard can that be?
