Configuring MMS on my old HTC Touch phone was a pain. In fact configuring MMS on any device is a pain and is probably one of the reasons the service is not as popular as SMS.
The carrier (Airtel) did not have a way of pushing the settings to the device and the manual configuration that they were suggesting did not match the UI elements that I was seeing on the phone !
I did finally manage to configure MMS on HTC and did write a detailed post on the same.
MMS configuration on the Blackberry on the other hand was a breeze. A service book was pushed by the carrier which has the MMS settings
I was also asked to send a test MMS to myself to activate the feature (wonder why I had to do this).
A soft reset was also recommended after which the MMS feature started working.
If you are having trouble enabling MMS on Blackberry:
- Ensure that the MMS Service book is present
- Ensure that the service is activated as well (Activation methods are carrier specific)
- Ensure that you send a test MMS to yourself.
