I cannot receive multimedia mail. How do I get it to work?


here is a general procedure to understand how MMS works. In this procedure, a photo is being sent to another compatible phone.
  • Step one: Take a photo from your built-in camera phone or download via the Internet.
  • Step two: Personalize the text, graphics, audio or video clips.
  • Step three: Add recipients' number and send.
The recipient on the other side will receive a message alert. Once he opens the message, a picture message will appear on the screen. If there is any text, it will appear below the image. In case, you send MMS to a non-compatible cell phone - the recipient will a SMS with a default line, "You have been sent a picture message!"
There are many challenges that exist with MMS:
  • Adaptation of multimedia content: There may be a difference in the compatibility of multimedia content for different brands of cell phones. If the network operator is supporting your content adaptation - you can enjoy compatibility with more networks and vice versa.
  • Cell phone configuration: Multimedia Messaging Service requires some parameters to be correctly placed in you handset. Sometimes, due to poor configuration, you may not receive messages.
  • Bulk messaging: Sometimes, if you send MMS to a large number of subscribers, there might be some difficulty in sending messages. Now transactional overloads are being optimized.
Moreover, there are several similar terms such as Enhanced Messaging Service (EMS) - very similar to SMS (Short Messaging Service), allowing you to send or receive messages with some special text formatting options such as bold, color, sound effect, icons, etc.

My son tried to send me a photo of our grandaughter to my mobile but when i try to view it it comes up with a message unknown subsciber have a samsung d900


Hi, and welcome to FixYa!

I've been doing some research on your problem of not being able to receive MMS messages (pictures) on your phone. There are a couple of reasons why you may not be able to. I'll list them in order:

1) Your cellular provider may not have MMS activated for your phone. Contact your provider and ask if MMS is enabled on your line.
a) If they tell you, no - it is not currently enabled, then ask them to enable it for you.
b) If they tell you, yes - it is currently enabled, ask to speak to someone in Tech Support. Inform Tech Support that you are not receiving MMS messages but instead, an 'Unknown Subscriber' message although you have MMS currently activated on your line. Most Tech Support Departments can send a 'packet' to your phone that you will simply click on when you receive it - and download it on your phone. That should solve the problem.

There is one more problem I discovered. If the picture you are sent is too large for your phone's screen to display you might also receive this, 'Unknown Subscriber' message.

Regardless, your first call should be to your cellular provider to ask assistance with your MMS settings.

I hope this information will help you.
