Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
If your phone wont send or receive picture messages then this is due to the mms settings on your phone being wrong, this also applies to having problems accessing the internet on your phone as this to is down to having the wrong settings stored on your phone.
This is a very common problem and usually happens when you change your sim card from one network to another or even changing from contract to pay as you go.
To solve this problem you have 2 options, the first to try would be go to your service providers web site and have a look and see if they have the option where you can send the correct mms and internet settings to your phone, now the only problem you might have with this is that not all service providers have this option on their site, so if you can find this option then my next answer will now solve your problem.
option 2: all you need to do is contact your service provider by phone and ask them to send you the correct settings for mms and internet settings now they dont charge for doing this and they will send you these settings via text message the text will then update your phone to the correct settings and will then solve your problem.
Their is no charge for this service unless you have to pay for the call to your service provider the messages will update your phone as soon as you save the message and then you will be able to send and receive picture messages and access the internet.
Doing either of those will solve your problem
