    We bought a G1 off of a 3rd Party Carrier (brand new), and activated it via Wifi.

    Tmobile was able to recognize it when we put the sim card in.
    (the picture of the phone appeared when we went to account settings within the tmobile website).

    So basically, we have an unlimited text and messaging plan. and NO data plan.

    The internet works fine on the phone when using wifi. However, we are having issues with picture messaging. We receive the text message + picture attached, however, the g1 will not let us download it.

    I have looked around and seen workarounds for this error.
    One method was to forward the text to an email and download it from there. However, we could not get this to work.

    SO my question is,
    What (if any), is the most up-to-date method to get MMS over Wifi without a data plan.

    Sorry no one has answered your topic. Nevertheless, I do need your help. I have a G1 bought from a third party, rooted rc30, but not activated. i have the sim card with no data plan on it. can you pleaze give me instruction on how to activate using WiFi? I've heard it can be done but haven't found the instructions yet. Any help from you would be appreciated. Thanks!
