Sprint Discontinuing Picture Mail Web Site April 30
Sprint has indicated via its web site that it will cease offering its Picture Mail web site on April 30. Sprint recommends that customers log in and download their stored media before April 30, as all their content will become inaccessible after that time. Sprint did not offer a reason for discontinuing the service, though the number of alternative services for sharing/storing pictures online is substantive. Sprint's Picture Mail service can still be used to send pictures, but customers will no longer be able to store them and access them online.
End of an era...
Later on... when Sprint phones had "Picturemail" clients installed on phones that would automatically download the picture to your phone. and notify you. The client would display the pic... no WAP site needed. It was trying to mimic the behavior of MMS... except they still kept the picture stored online. If you did not have a data connection where you were at a given moment, you could not view previously received pics in your Picturemail inbox.
I think with modern smartpho...
What a shame they got derailed with the Nextel merger and started shifting all of their attention to "Sprint TV....
