[MotoQ Filter] Help me send and receive picture messages with my cellphone.

I have a Moto Q smart phone from Alltel. I have had it for around a year and have never ever been able to send or receive pictures via SMS / MMS messaging.
Since picture phone messages are one of my favorite things to send via cellphone I really miss this functionality.
Alltel has told me on many customer service calls they simply don't support MMS on the Moto Q and that I will just have to "email" messages back and forth. This has never worked.
I use Gmail and have it setup via the POP3 feature on the cellphone and it works fine for me sending pictures to email accounts and to my blog etc. However I can't seem to use it to send directly to someone's cellphone.
Here's my example: My wife has the Motorola Razor. She can send me a picture message to my Gmail account and I can retrieve them... it's a hassle, but I can do it.
I can not however, send her a picture via SMS / MMS... period.
I can not, even though they always tell me I can, get a picture message to her cellphone by using her phone email address either. (her address is phonenumber.message.alltel.com) --- They instruct me to use my gmail account to email it to that address. It has never worked, and they can't tell me why.
My goal is to be able to message other cellphone users with pictures. It's frustrating that I paid so much for this phone and its functionality seems so limited.
Any suggestions would be great!
P.S. I have the unlimited data plan.... In case that would help find a solution. Also, I have no problem with simple text messages back and forth.
