Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

3 Answers

My phone will only send multi media messages?

Recently, someone asked me why I was sending her a picture message as a reply. All I had done was hit "reply" when answering her text. But then, someone else said the same thing. I am apparently sending a picture that you can't open every time I try to send a normal text message. I checked my message details and it classifies my messages as multi media and my outbox shows the recipient's name first, then the message instead of the other way around like before. I went through all of the menus to try to change it back, and I couldn't find aything. Help!

    I believe I'm having the exact same problem. I can't think of anything I did to make it do this. Every text I send is a multimedia message for some reaons. I have also fished through every menu and found nothing helpful.

I did more searching and found the answer! Clean out your inbox and outbox, and your phone should go back to sending normal messages. You might need to restart it afterward.

Receiving text messages with pictures

This model not the best for doing & receiving pictures or texts. But I sometimes have issue above if someone has sent a message or a picture to me as part of a group message. I seem to have less issues if they send it to just me directly. Next time someone sends you one, text them back & ask them to send you pic/message seperately, not within a group & see if that helps

I cannot send or receive picture messages

Dear Sir! Their could be two reasons for that:
  1. MMS(multi media settings) are not activated on your SIM card(connection).
  2. MMS is not activated in your cell or installed on your cell phone.
Case 1:
First contact your network provider call the call center n ask them to active MMS settings on your number.
Case 2:
If above step wont solve your problem then what you have to do is to contact your network provider again and ask them to send corresponding MMS settings for your cell.They might tell you a code(remember that!).They will send you MMS settings (or configuration message).Store it!. And in case prompted for password enter that code you were told before.After that set that settings to default.And restart your phone.

You can send pictures from your cell now!!!
Good Luck!

That should work to send pictures to people.

I cannot send picture messages from my lg phone. I recieve ''message failure'' message. I can, though, send text messages.

Call Verizon you may have multi media blocked by mistake. We do that to people on the work cell phone, they can text but we don't allow them to send pics or sounds etc. .

Phone Sending MMS Messages as Default

The phone allocates a certain amount of storage for messages on a whole. Even though there may still show space available for text messages, you have hit an invisible "limit" and the phone is now defaulting to MMS messages because there is "room" there. Delete a fair amount of messages and you should be able to start sending regular text's again.
