Re: Cannot receive pictures

If you purchased the "Multimedia SMS" package from your service provider, then you have full access to the sending and recieving pictures. If you don't have this package, then sometimes you can send, but the reciever will not recieve your mail. So if you really want this problem fixed, then I suggest you to purchase the package from you service provider.

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.

Cant get the photo sent

hi, all you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them to send you the correct internet and mms settings they will send you these for free and they send them via text message this will then update your phone to the correct settings and allow you to receive picture messages.

Its the mms settings that are wrong on your phone so once they send you these via text message this will then update your phone and will then solve your problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Cannot send or receive photo on mobile

Make sure your phone is capable. Then contact your service provider to make sure that you have a data feature active. The data feature is what changes an sms to an mms since the picture is sent through the text message as an attachment that needs opened through the web browser.

Will not receive pictures

Check with Sprint to see if you have a data plan for MMS. Text plans are different from data plans that support MMS for sending and receiving pictures. Sounds like data is being blocked.

When recievin photo message will not display and states unsupported content

as your phone only has a standard VGA camera, it is possible that the pictures your being sent are too large for your phone to display. Can you send MMS? (picture messages) Try taking a photo on your phone and then send it to your own mobile number. This will test that your phone is ok and the problem is related to the actual message your being sent, i.e. file too large. ( in UK max file size is 200kb I believe)
If thats all ok ask the person who is sending you photos to maybe take a photo using less mega pixel setting on their phone, lets say 640x480 resolution (VGA like your phone) and see if you can receive that from them? I have come accross this before on some lower spec Samsungs. Hope that helps?

Can't receive or send out pictures

first thing make sure you have the recipents phone # correct with area code included
second make sure that the type of message being sent is a multi media message (MMS)
third try sending a new photo (one that is taken after you have started creating the message)
if the new photo sends then your saved photos may be unable to send or move. in that case you should delete them
before you go deleting anything tho try swiching the saved photos from the memory card to the phone itself
if you have no memory card in your phone then you should check the status of your phones memory it may be too full and you may only have to delete a few unwanted items

hope that helps you

All phones arent compatible with each other it depends what kind of phone is sending them to you. It has something to do with SMS and MSN or something has to be changed.
