I can't send an MMS or pic on my straight talk ZTE Majesty cell phone


If you do not have at least 2 steady bars of reception strength, text messages or pic messages could fail sometimes. If these fail no matter what signal strength, you should contact your phone provider (StraightTalk).

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:

Get my mms


To be able to get a mms message, you have to have the internet service that your wireless provider offers. If you are unable to get the mms, then you need to call your wireless provider to see if you have sms(text)messaging and internet on your account, if not then you can add it and you will be able to receive mms messages.

Hi, I'm unable to receive any text messages and keep receiving error message "memory full, please delete some messages" I have permanently deleted all text message, but still same occures. Please...


Go to SMS. Delete any messages from T-Mobile or whatever your system provider is.
Then All Messages in the lower left
Menu on the right
Scroll down to Tools
Choose Empty Deleted Items

I had this problem too. Apparently by default it only moves deleted SMS to a "trash" until you do this.

I cant recieve my text messages using my sciphone i68


first off need to know what cellular provider you are using, 2nd all text or picture text. regualar text is classified as SMS pic text is MMS. You may have a corrupt setting, but ill take a guess and post T Mobile setup. if you use someone else dont use these settings.

SMS Messaging:
1.) From the main screen tap the SMS Text icon.
2.) Tap SMS on the Messages menu.
3.) Tap SMS settings on the SMS menu.
4.) Tap either SIM1 or SIM2 on the SMS settings menu, whichever SIM you are setting
up at this time for SMS messaging.
5.) Tap Profile settings on the SIM1(2) message settings menu.
6.) Tap on any unused profile to select it, then tap the Edit button on the bottom of the
screen.
7.) You should be on the Profile name menu with the name field already highlighted. Go
ahead and tap the Edit button at the bottom of the screen.
8.) Tap in the following text between the quotes in the Profile name editor:
“T-Mobile”
Next tap the Options button at the bottom of the screen. Next tap the Done button.
You should be back on the Profile name menu with the new name.
9.) Tap the area below the profile name. The top of the menu should change to read SC
address and the bottom of the screen should show a numeral keyboard.
Tap in the following text between the quotes in the SC address editor:
“+12063130004”
Next tap the OK button at the bottom of the screen.
10.) A Save? question box should pop up. Tap the Yes button at the bottom of the screen.
You are done setting up SMS messaging for T-Mobile. You can continue
to tap the Back button on the bottom of the screen until you exit out of all
the menus to the main screen, or simply press the On/Off button once to
get back to the main screen. At this point you can test SMS messaging by
sending yourself a text message, or continue with other setup of the
phone.
MMS Messaging:
1.) From the main screen tap the SMS Text icon.
2.) Tap MMS on the Messages menu.
3.) Tap MMS settings on the MMS menu.
4.) Tap Server profile on the MMS settings menu.
5.) Tap either SIM1 or SIM2 on the MMS settings menu, whichever SIM you are setting up
at this time for MMS messaging.
6.) Scroll down the list until you come to Profile 8. You can use any profile if need be, but
profile 8 is usually the first not already filled.
7.) Tap on Profile 8. Tap Edit profile.
8.) Tap just below Rename profile, then tap on the Edit button at the bottom of the screen.
9.) Clear the current text, then tap in the following text between the quotes
“T-Mo MMS”
Tap the Options button at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the Done button.
10.) Tap the area below Homepage, then tap on the Edit button at the
bottom of the screen.
11.) Clear the current text except for “HTTP://”, then tap in the
following text between the quotes after the HTTP://
“216.155.174.84/servlets/mms”
Tap the Options button at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the Done button.
12.) Tap the area below Data account, then tap Select at the bottom of
the screen.
13.) Tap GPRS on the Data account menu.
14.) Scroll down the list until you come to T-Mo MMS, the data account
set up under the Data Account Services section. Tap on T-Mo MMS
to select it.
15.) Tap the area below Connection type, then tap Select at the bottom of
the screen.
16.) Tap on HTTP, then tap on OK at the bottom of the screen.
17.) Tap the area below Proxy address, use the numeric keyboard at the
bottom of the screen to tap in the following numbers,
“216155165050”. The result should look like 216.155.165.050 under
Proxy address.
18.) Tap the area below Proxy port, use the numeric
keyboard again to tap in the following numbers
“8080” to replace the current 0 value. Then tap OK.
19.) The areas under both User name & Password should
remain BLANK. If they are not blank, select each,
and Edit them by clearing all text.
20.) Next tap the Done button at the bottom of the screen.
21.) A Save? question box should pop up. Tap the Yes
button at the bottom of the screen.
22.) Tap the Activate profile button on the T-Mo MMS menu screen, and you should be
taken back to the Select profile screen where a big green check mark will be beside the
newly saved T-Mo MMS profile.
