    I've been reading that the 6700 does not support picture mail??? Can anyone confirm this??? Everyone has said that the business phones do NOT support it but the consumer phones that sprint just released should... any info. would be appreciated! Thanks!

    the 6700's that have been sold the past month do not support picture mail. sprint just released the 6700 for regular consumers and on the consumer website, it lists picture mail as being supported. until someone actually gets one in their hands that was ordered from the consumer website, we won't know for sure. it is entirely possible that the information on the consumer website is incorrect and Sprint was just sloppy in describing the features the phone supports. just going to have to wait and see...

    Yeah I saw that too on their site... I sure hope that it's right! I can not see Sprint goofing what seems to be a great phone by not including a simple feature like picture mail. I'm waiting to hear if it's correct before I make my purchase.

    Yeah, this is going to be interesting. Seems the consumer 6700 might have everything we want. MIGHT! Anyone know?

    I have one on order for my wife..coming in this friday.. I read that Picture mail was supported.

    Going to let her try it out and if I like it enough will ditch my 650 for it.

    I'm telling you..i've seen so much movement in the smartphone arena that Palm is horribly falling behind on feature set and advancement. Some of the european Nokia and JasJar phones coming over to the states soon will blow your mind and make the Treo line look horribly out of date.

    I'm not a big "windows" fan..but if I need to swith OS's to get to a unit that has all the features sets I'm looking for I'm off the Palm bandwagon..

    I'll give a more detailed review a few days after we've had the 6700 and played with it

    If it has a camera (which it does) then it has Picture Mail. The "business version" more than likely is the same phone minus the camera, thus having no need for Picture Mail.

    I have a business version. It has a camera. No picture mail.

    If picture mail is included in the consumer released phone, then a ROM update will soon follow, or shadowmite will extract it.

    That is very interesting. Seems like a waste of a feature, doesn't it? Are you able to do anything with the pics you take with the camera? I am totally confused.

    I always thought Picture Mail was silly anyway. What advantage does it have over simply e-mailing the pics you take to the intended recipients? Definitely not a deal-breaker either way - at least for me.

    As long as you can still e-mail and/or text pics the only feature Picture Mail adds is uploading the pics to your Picture Mail account. I'm just surprised that a business version of the phone would have a camera. I always thought business version= no camera.

    No one said it was the business version, it was just being sold by the Sprint business department (Sprint Business Dept sells 650 w/ and w/o camera as well). Camera app has builtin option to let you send the pics via email...

    I recieved mine today and NO PICTURE MAIL!!! Hope they fix this very soon.... how do I send a picture to a sprint phone via email??? Anyone know? (And so far it took some getting used to but turning out to be a very sweet phone... now all I need is my picture mail!!! And I need a "butler" like program... one little beep for a text message or voicemail is not enough for me...)

    take the picture, click the email icon that appears on the next screen, pick the email account you want to send from, address the email to phonenumber@pm.sprintpcs.com, hit send.

    I did that exactly two times to two different sprint phones and neither one went thru... I'm having a hell of a time with this phone so far... I got it to sync up right away... then the next sync I tried it just reboots my computer... now that's all it does... really driving me crazy!!!

    you may wish to try uninstalling/reinstalling activesync and/or performing a hard reset on the 6700.

    This is probably due to a problem with Vision. Check this thread for more info:

    I did that numerous times and a no go... same thing every time... so I tried connected via bluetooth... and BAM... not one problem. Maybe a little slower but I don't mind. Thanks for the info though! Now we just need picture mail on this phone and it is by GREAT phone...

    PART 1:
    (not required for MMS)

    BACKUP all your contact information and data from your phone.
    This upgrade WILL WIPE YOUR PHONE!

    http://www4.sprint.com/pcsbusiness/s...oads/items.jsp this is the link to the software that u need to download. (44mb)
    2. Make sure that turn off ur firewall, and the screensaver because I have heard that if u do the update and the screensaver comes up or u dont disable the firewall that it can cause update probelms.
    3. Run Activsync 4.1
    3. Run the .exe file on your computer with the ppc connected via usb cable, follow on screen instructions and wait.....
    note: the ppc screen will darken when the update is taking place but you should barely be able to see like a
    progress counter that tells you % of progress, and the computer will show you a progress bar.


    UPGRADES:
    Push email (if you have an exchange server)
    Screen lock
    battery indicator on top bar
    Voice dial
    Smart dialing
    Better connection manager
    Zip program
    Switching between Landscape and Portrait no longer lags
    If you scroll to the bottom of Programs or Messages, you can cycle back to the top.
    Reduced the likelyhood of accidentally going into Flight Mode by pushing the End Call button too many times (or holding too long accidentally).
    Can now sync time with the cell network
    No more "session timed out" on first attempt to sync Hotmail
    Can now use the nav stick to move in and out of the addressbar in PIE
    No more skipping when playing music in Windows Media Player.
    Checks multiple pop email accounts if intervals are set. Niether needs to be "active" in Inbox app.
    Doesn't disconnect EVDO after checking email.
    Dont have to tap the screen after pulling out the keyboard to get the cursor back. The cursor now stays where it was before the keyboard came out.
    In PIE when you hold down on the d-pad the links will scroll for half a second, and then it will automatically go to scroll by page
    Phone settings->Services tab
    pocket Outlook doesn't turn the screen on when checking emails
    Wifi will now tell you if a connection is secure or not

    _______________________________________________________________________________

    PART 2

    Now after you have updated your ppc 6700...


    (Note: Install files for the ppc-6700 are .CAB files.)


    1. This is the MMS file that you need to download:
    http://home.comcast.net/~jaggrey/Sig...ZW_26Sep05.zip

    2. This is the Registry Edit Software you need to download:
    http://www.freewareppc.com/utilities...ryeditor.shtml

    3. Now, unzip 'Signed_MMS3.0.6.22_Apache_VZW_26Sep05.zip' and then copy the .CAB file to your 6700 using Activesync. Click the .CAB file on the 6700 and install it.



    4. Do the same for the PHM Registry Editor. Copy it to the 6700 and install it.



    5. Then, using PHM Registry Editor, edit your registry as such:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ArcSoft MMS UA\Config\UI
    change the key, EnableServerEdit, from 0 to 1
    Save the changes and exit PHM Registry Editor.


    6. The below edits are in the messaging software you installed.

    open "messaging" -> "Menu" -> "MMS Configiguration"

    After that you are ready to rock and roll.
    And you should have a new MMS folder in your message area.

    settings used on server config:
    Server Name: sprintpcs
    gateway: left blank
    port number: 80
    server address: http://mms.sprintpcs.com/servlets/mms
    Connect via: The Internet
    Sending size limitation: 350k
    wap: wap 2.0

    Thats it!
    You now have MMS Picture/Video mail...
