how do i activate the mms option on an 8530

I have 2 blackberry curves.  One has the mms option available, the other only has sms.  How do I get the mms option on the 2nd one?  There is no mms in the options list.

Hello tedhouse
The device should be picture ready. Is the 2nd curve a Verizon Device? The device should come with a built in Camera. Are you able to take pictures? Does the Browser work?

Thank you for your reply. Here are the anwsers:

I bought these 2 blackberry's for my twin girls as first phones. The first has no issues. They are both verizon phones.

The one that will not mms, is able to take pictures. However, the browser does not seem to work. It will go to the blackberry site, but when trying any other web address, it gives the error message: "Unable to find the requested server." They are both on the home wifi.

Also, on the 1st phone, in the options list, in alpha order, part of it reads: "...memory, mms, mobile network...." While the one that we want mms on, does not have mms on that list.

Thank you,

Ted House
