My iPhone 4 sends an receives iMessages no problem but normal text messages to none iPhone users are different It says my text gets sent but never gets received I have tested this. My phone is fully u


The user NOT receiving the message needs to go to settings for Messaging and turn iMessage off then on again. It has to show 'Receive messages at' settings with either phone number or email address. The phone will sometimes fail to automatically do so.

Whenever i get a picture message sent to me i just get a failed connection error...why..? Im using erickson z530i on vodafone payt


If you have problems sending or receiving MMS (picture messages) on your phone, you probably need new settings installed in your phone. Go to www.sonyericsson.com/support, choose your phone, choose "Phone Setup - MMS" then go through the wizard. When you've done this they'll send you the new settings in an SMS.
If you can't find your operator in the list,you need to contact your operator to get the settings. Many operators have similar settings wizards on their websites.

When I send a picture from my phone, it says it's sent, but the person I send it to never receives the picture.


For picture messaging there are a couple of things you and the other person needs...

1, A MMS capable phone, e.g a phone able to send and receive picture messages.

2, The correct MMS settings, both you and your friend needs settings for picture messaging, just like you need settings for going onto the net.

3, On some networks, the service has to actually be turned on by the network. e.g some networks who are behind dont have the service turned on for everyone you have to actually call them and make sure picture messaging is enabled on your account.

My first thing to check would be number 2, make sure you and your friend have the correct settings for sending and receiving picture messages, if they dont have the settings on there phone, even if your phone does then they will not receive the picture.
There are a couple of ways to get the settings.
1, You can search for the correct settings on the net for your network and make and model of handset and then manually enter them (slow)
2, Most decent manufacturers have an option on their website e.g Nokia, Sony Ericsson, to select your phone model, type in your phone number and network and have the settings sent directly to you.
3, You can call the network and get them to send the correct settings to your handset.

Unable to send/rec pictures SE W850i


Hi,

I think the problem here is with your connection. I understand that you have the right settings from your operator...however you should check with them to see if your line is data enabled for MMS (this is how your pictures are sent....in an MMS message).

My picture messages cannot be sent or received its says check internet settings profiles I have a sony ericsson k800 cyber shot, I cannot send or receive picture messages, not sure why, please help.


Make sure your subscription covers the desired service(s), and that the selected carrier (e.g. GPRS/EDGE) is available in the area. If you still have problems sending or receiving MMS (picture messages) or accessing the mobile Internet/WAP on your phone, you probably need new settings installed. Go to your mobile carrier website and follow the instructions to receive the settings in an SMS message. You can also contact your operator for the correct settings.

Well first of all you need the settings to be correct on the phone. Go to www.sonyericsson.com for this, it will be on the support page. You need to make sure that you have your WAP settings ( are you able to connect to the mobile internet?) then you will receive a text message with instructions, once this is done you will do the same thing with the MMS (picture messaging) settings. Once both of these text messages have been received and set succesfully you need to first send a picture message before you can receive one.
