Sprint Discontinues Picture Mail
Updated: Clarified When MMS officially became available
Sprint no longer offers Picture Mail to its feature phone subscribers. Picture Mail was a proprietary service that Sprint offered to its feature phone customers beginning in 2002 because, at the time it didn't offer proper MMS service. Sprint launched MMS service officially in 2006, but also offered Picture Mail as an alternative to select handsets that didn't support the OMA MMS standard. According to Sprint, MMS is still available to its feature phones, but, effective April 30, Picture Mail is no longer available.
