MMS confusion and disbelief
Why was I able to receive with no problem video messages on my 50.00 Razr phone but now that I've upgraded to the 300.00 Curve I no longer have a device capable of receiving these type messages.  I have a media player on here so what is the problem and is there any chance of this changing in the near future.

Can't receive video messages, or can't view the video? The Curve is capable of playing videos, but they have to be the correct format. According to RIM;
 
The following Video formats are supported:

MPEG-4 Part 2 - Simple Profile + bvops (including DivX files in this format)
H.263 Profile 0 and Profile 3
WMV 9 Simple Profile Video Decoder

The following Video file extensions are also supported:

.avi containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
.mov containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
.3gp containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
.mp4 containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
.m4v containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
.mpg containing MPEG4 Part 2 and H.263
 
If you can't receive the MMS, do you have a data plan? A data plan is required for MMS.

No, the message i get is "one or more of the message components have been deleted by MMS adaptation. Either the message was too large or the components were unsuitable for you terminal".  I'm wondering why this phone is not able to receive video attachments in an MMS message when so many other devices can.

If the file is too large, it will not send. How large is the file? Have you sent this EXACT file to other phones? Was this via MMS or bluetooth?
 
You didn't make it clear if you have a data plan, so do you have a Blackberry Data plan?

Yes, I have a Blackberry Data plan. I receive SMS and MMS messages all the time. This particular message was a short video cartoon. I have received it before on my RAZR. Not very large file.  Very frustrating.

Most likely the file is too large or the format is not supported.
