I am sure going to miss the picture mail. mapesy do you know how it going to work now when we send picture as MMS to an email address since with picture mail they recived an email that was link to the picture mail website. Would it now be send as an attachment?

Yes, that’s absolutely how it will be sent – as an attachment without the reference to Picture Mail.

I talked to the product manager about why is Sprint making these changes. Here is what she said.

Sprint strives to offer the things that matter most to our customers while still meeting shareholder expectations in an increasingly competitive market.  The overwhelming majority of customers devices have a ‘gallery’ where customers can share images by phone and email and post to other social media sites.  With the numerous 3rd party photo storage/social sites available (Photobucket, Snapfish, Flickr, Facebook, etc), customers will still have options to store their memories online.

Thanks for the feedback,

mapesy

Well this just sucks.  I kept getting a casual data fee charge for literally no explainable reason from sprint for about a year. I had to call up each month to get it removed..they eventually acknolwedged the issue and said if i put a data block on my phone they would remove the casual data fee for my account permenantly so i wouldnt have to call in each month..only downside was that i couldnt get pictures on my phone even though i have a picture message plan.  So the only way i can get and send pictures from my phone number is through this website, and now sprint is doing away with it....I'm thinking sprint is about to lose a customer.

Just another reason as to why I am dropping my contract in 10 months.

I totally concur.  If they advertise that they offer picture mail, but can't provide it in a free manner (i.e. unexplainable data charges) then they should  give those who block data a reduction in their monthly fee because the whole product is not available as advertised.

mapesy - ok, I don't think I am stupid but I have "tried" to click and drag the albums to the download PC (the only one I see is under the Share with friends) - nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

mrcminnesota,

      It sounds like you're doing it right. I just tested on an album of my own to verify it's working properly at the moment. It may be a browser issue. You could try updating your browser or using a different browser. As a workaround you can save images by right-clicking on them and selecting "Save Picture As..." I hope this helps!
