I would install the app 'fast tube' available on BlackBerry world. Much quicker and more customisable than you tube

If anyone would have the answer, i am still not able to send or receive picture using text message, i keep getting the same error code (general problem) otherwise internet, mails, photos in emails, phone calls.. everything is good except this !!!

Data plan is up and running normal, apn seems normal too..

Called fido, tried a few things with them, still no luck !

I've contacted blackberry support on twitter, but they say that this is a problem that only my service provider can solve..

I'm on the fence of sending it back, i really need this to be functionning for my work

I simply don't understand, everything was working fine with my Z10, i simply swap the sim card from my Z10 to my Z30 and now no luck, did all the updates, reboot a few times..

Please help !!!

Cross check the APN settings between Z10 and Z30. Ensure the Z30 APN settings are exactly like the Z10.

Any ideas why?
Have you tried updating Over The Air (OTA) using WiFi?

I had a Z30 on Fido before and didn't get problem with MMS. Maybe something is wrong with your APN setting. Have you asked Fido to refresh your network from their side?

My dad is eligible for an early upgrade with Wind Mobile and the email says that he could keep the same plan which is the old $40 plan with unlimited US And Canada and 5 gb data and get a Motorola G for free with a new Windtab. Has anyone else been offered this and do you keep your grandfathered plan? The reason I ask is because we bought my dad the Z30 for father's day thinking that there would no longer be a free phone offered now that there are 2 year plans only now instead of 3 years and don't want to lose the grandfathered plan.

If Wind is letting you stay on the grandfathered $40 plan and giving you a new phone for free, there is no reason for you to decline this offer unless you are thinking of leaving Wind in the future in which case you will need to pay the Moto G Wind tab balance in full.

I called to make sure and they said they will continue to honour the plan so it seems like a no brainer. I may have a Z30 to sell then in the GTA. My dad has the end of the month to take advantage of the deal.

FYI Blueshop.ca is also selling the same products at the same prices, however they only require $20 for free shipping (as opposed to crackberry's $50 for free SH). Also Blueshops warehouse is located in Quebec, so maybe it will ship faster?

Ordered a few cases from crackberry.com last month. Everything actually came from Blueshop in Quebec.

Or keep the Z30 for better clearer phone calls with the paratek antennae and sell the other :-). Juss Sayin'.

Good idea. The Z30 is a more superior phone than the Moto G2 with a better battery and antenna. My dad is hard of hearing so that is a better option. Thanks for the suggestion Bargaibhunter.
