About MMS messages
With an MMS phone number, you can send and receive MMS messages that contain media files such as .jpg, .gif, .wbmp, .midi, .vcf
(vCard®), .ics (iCalendar), .avi, .mpg, or .mov files. An MMS phone number is a phone number that your wireless service provider sets up
for MMS messaging. If you have more than one phone number associated with your BlackBerry® device, your device sends MMS messages
using the first phone number that appears in the drop-down list at the top of the Phone screen.
You can add pictures that are not copyright protected to an MMS message, but the message cannot exceed 300 KB.
