Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Cannot send or receive picture messages

I brought my RAZR a week ago - it will not send or receive picture messages. Have called Optus and got some code number to put into my phone - did nothing. I went back to the shop I brought it from - he said it could be my sim so he got me a new one - did nothing. I still cannot send or receive picture messages. When I receive one it tells me to go to some website - and when I go to send one it just stays at 0% then says "unable to send" - the stupid thing is brand new - I'm might sell it because it's annoying me!

Re: Cannot send or receive picture messages

Well you have to have internet to receive pics from the internet sent from people but thats on trac phones not sure why on your's but as far you not sending pics via bluetooth or mms I dont know your phone should still be under warranty and they should have replaced it 4 you if you bought it with a malfunction. other than that try rebooting your software to see if that helps it may not be a hardware problem.

Motorola V3 Razr Sending/Receiving pics in text messages

ATT should have looked to see if the internet service is turned off for that particular phone. If thats the case, you shall not send receive pictures. Thats the only the reason you should not be able to send receive pictures.

Call ATT again and ask them that. Sorry to say you might have got the high school dropout rehab person that day.

Ussually picture messaging problems are a result of a failed data connection. The mobile internet that you have on the phone is called wap and picture messages use wap to send and receive like an email uses the internet. Check your data connection. Go to a wap site or to the area where your provider offers ringtones and see if it works. It probabyly doesnt. Contact your carrier to help correct it if it doesnt.

Unable to send/receive picture messages

Perhaps ask your network provider to send you a new SIM card with MMS capability - remember to ask to keep your number.
Once you receive the SIM, you will have to call your network provider's customer service department to activate it.
The whole thing takes around 3 days to do, and it's worth it just to find out.
