Re: RAZR V3 is sending my text messages as SMS messages

This happens by default on some motorola phones if someone sends you an MMS. My suggestion would be to go into your text message preferences and start looking for that "Send message as.." option. There's a user manual on this site, maybe that will help.

I'm using Nokia 2700 Classic. I've a problem with

this is not really a problem but understanding should be clear:
Multimedia Messaging Service(MMS)

MMS is a descendant of SMS (Short Messaging Service). MMS extends text messaging to include longer text, graphics, photos, audio clips, video clips, or any combination of the above, within certain size limits.

MMS is frequently used to send photos and videos from camera phones to other MMS phones or email accounts. Most camera phones have MMS, but many non-camera phones have it as well.

if it has a photo, video or audio it will automatically be categorize as MMS
While SMS stands for short message service. SMS is also often referred to as texting, sending text messages or text messaging. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. purely text:

Sending all texts as mms instead of sms.

clean up ALL your messages.
For some reason when you are full up on messages instead of telling you it will just start sending MMS instead of SMS messages.
Just got to Menu > Messaging > Options > Cleanup Messages > All
After that, it will start sending SMS again.

Hi dude,
I m sorry. U lack knowledge regarding about SMS/MMS.
SMS=short messaging. It is only for text messages.
Similarly, MMS=multimedia messaging. It is for sending text with animations or photos, video clips, etc.
U need to have MMS connection in ur mobile to send text with animations.
Send me a feedback and rate my solution too.
Dont forget to post a clarification request for ur problem after it is solved.

Your phone ran out of memory and the only way the messages could be sent or received is through mms on the phone. You need to clear out the in and out box often so the phone will not do this. Also you must reboot the phone after you have cleared out the in and out box. Then it should work.

MMS is default for messages

I had this problem develop for my Razr V3xx, but after emptying out all my messages in my inbox, outbox, and drafts, it returned to a normal text message format. Hope it works for you as well.

most likely you need to check with your carrier due to when your friend sends you a ringtone it will go through the phone as a multimedia message (MMS) so for those to work you need 2 things first 1 text messages must work 2 must be able to access net if able to do both of those things then you need to contact service provider to make sure that your MMS is on.
