FWIW, I didn't see the TP2 listed as one of the devices affected by this decommission. That's not to say it wasn't an oversight on Sprint's part.

Just found out about this as well. Looking for alternatives now. Worst part is if someone sends you a MMS you won't get it and they wont know that you didn't get it. Unreal move by Sprint forcing users to upgrade phones by taking away functionality.

yes if someone sends you a pic mail / mms they will have no idea it wasnt sent...they will think it was sent..................if you send pic mail/ mms it just wont send and you will know it.....but yes pic mail / mms is no longer usable on htc touch pro 2 as well as about 100 other phones......sprint is trying to force people out of the old plans and phones...so they can make more $$$$$$

im hoping someone will come up with a windows 6.5 app that can be used to send pic mail / mms using htc touch pro2 or any other phone

Unless there's another list, THIS ONE doesn't include the TP2.

well i saw the list on sprint site you provided and it does not show the htc tp2 but another article showed it listed.....anyways mine definitely does not do pic mail anymore as of april 30 it stopped just as sprint promised ....i do see several online references to this now...so im confident there will be a solution to this..originally when i googled this back on may 1 there was only 1 search found regarding sprint disabling pic mail on older phones....now there are many....

That's a total crock. Other carriers have made you change plans if you got a new phone but I don't recall them removing services in an attempt to get customers to upgrade. Seems to me that it violates your agreement. You agreed to pay for service with Sprint and part of that service was the ability to send/receive pics.
