I recently bought an ''older'' model Nokia 3300 for my wife on EBay. It is ''unlocked'', brand-spanking new. My provider is Cingular. After checking all the setting thru tech-support (took about 2 hrs on separate days), they determined that since I did not buy the phone through Cingular, that the phone would not be able to send or receive MMS messages (but can access the Web & send SMS). IT at Cingular told me that phones manufactured for them are imbedded with some settings that cannot be adjusted by the user. Anyone know if this is true?
Since it is able to send/receive SMS, and it is able to hook to the wireless web w/o any problem, I'm asking-- am I stuck with this less than perfect scenario, or is there another option? BTW, I subscribe to all the services required to perform these tasks, which worked fine on her other Nokia phone, purchased directly from Cingular. (One other thing, Cingular did upgrade the SYM card.)
Any help would be appreciated.
