    I love how notices appear in your inbox a week or two after they were released, if you get one at all...

    I logged into the service once to setup my account and never went back. I won't miss the service but this is a heads up to those who may rely on it.

    WTH is picturemail? They just come to phone and I get them from there. Why would I need Sprint to keep a storage space for them? :dunno:

    Your guess is as good as mine. I figure this service was useful before sharing media was so easy. Now that almost anyone with a smartphone can receive and distribute media to any person or site with a few clicks they find its usefulness gone. People with older phones will probably feel this loss the most.

    Lol, duh! At first when I read this I thought it meant we would no longer be able to send or receive pictures! I think I still have some stuff out there, too, from back when you could send photos to a Walgreens anywhere in the country through Sprint and a friend or relative who lived far away could pick them up. I didn't even know they still did that and had forgotten all about it.

    I go there every once in a while to make sure I haven't missed an mms (Used to not get @ 1 of 3, but it's been a lot better this past year).

    Picture Mail, as someone else noted, is a relic of the featurephone era and allowed you to easily share pics from your phone's camera. I used it some when I had an old Sanyo phone, but totally forgot about it.

    I love the storage feature of picture mail. Sucks that it's going away. I understand why it's going away for good reason though.
