This CANNOT happen again!

Here's the skinny on an extremely unacceptable and dangerous glitch that just happened to me.  Holy **bleep**, how did it even happen?!


I'm on my second BB phone on Sprint.  First was the Tour and now it's the Torch.  With my first as well as the second, I take pictures and send them with descriptions or general rants or just the pics themselves as text messages.  My Tour is long since dead along with the pictures I had taken with it.  Well, that's not exactly correct, I did transfer them all to my computer before I buried the Tour.  Apparently the pictures I had sent through the ether with the Tour are still floating around in perpetual existence.  The other day I took a pic with my new phone, the Torch, and sent it out to its recipient.  When the text/picture reached its destination, lo-and-behold, it was not the picture I had just taken but a picture that has long since, 2+ years, been gone and/or deleted from existence - accept, I suppose from the "cloud".  What the hell?!  Any clue as to how dangerous that is?!?!?!


How does that happen?  I am extremely weary now to send anything from my BB phone.  Thoughts?

Re: This CANNOT happen again!

This sounds like more of a problem with Sprint rather than the BB itself.

Jaroam, as the other two said, it's not you, it's not BlackBerry, it's Sprint.


Your MMS picture messages are saved 'in the cloud' with Sprint.

Yell at them.


Good luck!
