SunCom's MMS Manual Configuration

I got SunCom over here in Puerto Rico and I've been trying to configure MMS on my unlocked RIZR Z3. Through customer service they sent me a text that said "browser update" and when I accepted it and typed in the 4-digit code they gave me my RIZR said to me "Cannot add MMS server" something about I had too many. So I searched ModMyMoto and eventually learned how to erase the Web Sessions. After I erased the Web Sessions I tried re-downloading the software from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and the phone said the same thing to me. I wanted to know if someone could help me configuring the Web Session for SunCom MMS manually?

The customer service lady told that the service type is HTTP not WAP or anything else, that's ...

question about Suncom ....

my contract runs out in jan, do I automacily go month to month? Is there any disadvantage to going month to month instead of having a contract?

Anyway, last i check, after 10 months, I get a small discount on a new phone from SunCom? Is that, 10 months within a contract? or does month to month count?

Basically, if I plan on staying with suncom, is there any advantage to having a contract? thanks!!

Should my brother and I join Suncom? But we worry about the roaming off the towers and paying a fortune. We're in SC. We need unlimited text/picture messaging. Early night and weekends. And don't want to be roaming in our own city on somebody's towers, lol

SBA picks up 69 towers from SunCom
By Joni Morse
Nov 14, 2006
BOCA RATON, Fla.—SBA Communications Corp. struck an agreement with regional wireless carrier SunCom Holdings Inc. to buy 69 towers located throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and eastern Tennessee. The deal is worth $18 million.
SBA’s deal with SunCom spells the end of the operator’s U.S. presence in the tower industry. SunCom still owns sites in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Raymond James & Associates analyst Ric Prentiss commented that the SunCom towers “are typical of what SBAC is looking for in towers, young towers with growth potential.”

SBA’s stock was up 16 cents to $27.76 per share following the news.

Yesterday, SBA Communication...

The future of SunCom

Do you see a bright future ahead for SunCom with Ole Blue Eyes Jr. crooning away for them or do you see them being acquired in the near future by a company like Orange Jumping Jack?

I worked for SunCom for a period of time, and have waited for two or so years to see them listed on Phone Scoop. Congratulations, SunCom!

Where is SunCom at in terms of subscribers? When I worked there, we had 965,000. Thanks!

My Hiptop experience with Suncom.

I've been having "problems" with my hiptop. I did buy it second hand (so no warrenty, no insurance) but nothing seems visably wrong with it. The applications work fine. Everything works the way it's supposed to.

It worked beautifully the first month. Then it started to get ugly. I dealt with it losing reception occasionally, then it started to do it often. I called Suncom and they did some "over the air" message and asked me to restart my phone. They told me it was a temporary fix and to call tech support to get a better fix. So I called and get no help from tech support and they wrote on my account to go to a store. I don't want to go to the store because I work screwy hours so I ignore this.

So it works wonderfully, then after a co...

If SunCom is so great then what's going on?

From what I hear SunCom isn't doing that great. People swear the company is wonderful and such a trend setter but I don't think so. If you get SunCom don't plan to travel or even step outside of a 2 foot circle of coverage because the phone will not work.

And where is all the management going? I heard that several VIPs have jumped ship! Not a good sign. Same thing happened with AT&T i hear when Cingular was putting the moves on them. Laughing

Hiptop 3 Coming Soon?

I've been hanging around these forums for quite some time now, but havent been posting because there wasnt a link for Suncom.....I guess I have an accuse to post now.
Anyway, I bought the Hiptop 2 from Suncom on June 10, 2006 (recently). I was just wondering when the Hiptop 3 will be release. Will Suncom offer an upgrade program?....

P.S.-- For all of you that dont know what suncom is all about, visit and you can type in my zip code (29681) to view the phones.
