    Can't receive picture messages from other cell phones?

    I have the Sidekick III and I'm just wondering if it's just my phone but why can't I send or receive picture messages? How do I do it? The instructionbooklet isn't helping me at all and my friends sent me picture messages but I never received them. What's wrong? I have the Sidekick Plan, if that matters.....

    You can't send or receive picture messages through text messages on the sidekick (there is no MMS is why..tmobile blocked that)

    instead you have to use email. You can use your tmail, or POP email to send the pictures to there phone and for them to send it to you

    use that to help figure out there email address

    Yea I get that. I know if I want to send a picture message to someone I have to use my Tmail or POP account. That's fine. But suppose somebody sends me a picture message (not to my Tmail or Tmomail account) some users on this forum and different forums said that you get a text msg saying you have recieved a picture msg and tells you to go to tmobilepictures.com to view it. It also gives you a password in the text msg to use.

    I don't get that text when someone sends me a picture message. I have already set up My Album but it still doesn't work

    You go to your tmobilepicture.com and it's gonna ask for your number and password. You type in you number and the password that's in the text message you received and then you'll see the pictures your friends have sent you.

    if someone wants to send you a picture, all you have to do is tell them to send it to your tmail address. in phones with the MMS feature, they have the option to enter a phone number OR email address...

    My wife has a sidekick 3 and she sent me a picture message through her email application to my phone number and I never received it. I mean I got the message but I never got the picture. What's up with that? So she is not allowed to send pictures to other cellphone numbers?

    On the Sidekick 3, can you go on the internet and save a picture from online to the phone?

    Can any sidekick experts explain the aforemention statement above?

    i'm not an expert, but my guess is that your phone cannot receive attachments from emails. i have alltel and whenever somebody sends me a picture message from a sidekick to my phone, i just get a blank message. but when they send it to a verizon phone, it works. i guess verizon is the only service that can receive attachments in messages.

    correct me if i'm wrong...
