Do you have a data connection? Or a blackberry data add-on? With Blackberrys (except BB10), you need a data add-on in order to send picture/video messages although you won't be charged for it. A data connection needs to exist in order to do that.

You need to hava a data connection (being able to connect to the internet through your cellphone provider)

With a smartphone, (iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, BB) you can acess the internet even without being connected to a wireless network.

Hey Mariah, when you look at your rate plan, does it have a "BB" next to it?

Alright, so what you'll need to do is give us a call so we can get the Data Saver Blackberry Access added on. Once that's done, you'll need to register the Host Routing Tab(done from the phone). This will register your Blackberry so the mobile data connection will work properly.

Is your curve a 8xxx series (in other words, does it have a sim card or not).
If it's CDMA (no sim card), then MMS (picture/video messaging) is not supported with Koodo.
