OFFICAL: Picture Mail coming to the Sprint Mogul

Check out this link:

http://forums.buzzaboutwireless.com/....id=4014#M4014

The post is by Tristian, who is a board Moderator and works for Sprint. They have had Sprint Execs on the board saying it was being worked on and would come, but it is now official. In addition this fix will fix all windows mobile devices for 6.0 and above, along with every windows mobile device that is released from this point on (meaning after the fix is released) will be capable of Picture Mail. At this point he didn't say MMS for sure or if the Treo 800w will have it, however this release is expected later this year as an update to current phones.

Here is the text from the post:

Sprint would like to provide an update in response to recent inquiries about sending pictures from Sprintís Windows Mobile devices to other mobile phones. Currently Sprintís Windows Mobile devices support sending/receiving pictures between any valid email address and receiving Sprint Picture Mail pictures from mobile phones via text messaging. Picture Mail pictures received via text messaging appear as a URL that is viewable from the Windows Mobile deviceís Web browser. Sprint currently does not offer the capability to send pictures to other mobile phones by entering the mobile number to share photos. To address this issue, we are currently working on two solutions:

1. We expect to offer a free Picture Mail software download later this year that will enable all customers with existing Windows Mobile 6 devices to send pictures to other mobile phone numbers (normal usage fees will apply).
2. Beginning later this year, all future Windows Mobile device models from Sprint will be preloaded with the full Picture Mail application.

In the interim we would like to remind customers that pictures can be shared from Windows Mobile devices to any email account via the Options/Send menu on the device. Pictures can also be shared from Windows Mobile devices through the use of Bluetooth, beaming and synchronization capabilities, and removable memory cards. We will continue to communicate updates here as the exact timelines and solutions are finalized.

I hope you find this site useful. Please continue to post and help others by providing a phone rating.

Just think, in a few months the Mogul will be a complete device!!! Windows 6.1 updates, Picture Mail, TV, GPS, Rev. A, it will be what it should have been when it was released!!!

Re: OFFICAL: Picture Mail coming to the Sprint Mogul

Despite a plethora of dubious claims that WM6 phones have no need for Picture Mail since e-mail is "sufficient," it's still much easier to send pictures to friends without their e-mail address.

I can't wait for this.

I do and cant wait, but later this year could be December. I don't use newguys sms. I don't want to have to install something every 30 days so I use email and will till the update comes out. I would recommend it (sMMs) to others but still just not my thing. Thanks for the heads up Parrott

I agree that a lot of people care. There are a lot of people who only want to use Official roms and programs and not just temporary hacks. No offense to the sMMS guy, but it was only designed to hold us over, not replace picture mail or MMS. Why not at least happy that Sprint is fixing something that everyone said was broke? No one knows how it will turn out, why not hold off on judging it until we actually see it. I don't know when exacly it will be released, but I thought it was going to be late 3rd quarter.

Re: OFFICAL: Picture Mail coming to the Sprint Mogul

To me the point of all this is Sprint is finally listening to cusomers. It took IMO far too long, but they are listening now. sMMS is filling the gap and the app gets better every release and SomeGuy is making it into a very nice app that I will probably use even if an "official" Sprint app comes out. I patiently await this release and hope that it's sooner than later, but expect it to be awhile.
