Re: picture messaging

You need to speak to your service provider as they have not sent the text set up to your sim card to allow MMS (multi media services) for accepting and sending photos. If you have just purchased the phone it can take upto 24 hours for your sim to set up fully depending on your service provider.

I cant seem to send or recieve a picture message with my samsung T301G phone. please tell me how to fix this problem.

Hi, this is a very common problem and it usually happens when you have just brought a phone or if you have changed the sim card for one from another network.

to solve this problem all you need to do is contact your service provider and tell them what phone and that you need the latest mms settings sent to your phone, also ask for internet settings if you are unsure if your settings are correct, your service provider will send the settings via text message these messages will then ask you to press update once you select update it will then store these new settings on your phone.
Your service provider wont charger for this service and the text are free also so its not going to cost you anything, you can also sometimes send the settings to your phone yourself from your service providers web site, how ever not all service providers off this feature so you would need to check.

Once your phone has the new settings you will be able to send and receive mms pictures and videos, the settings will tell your phone the correct format to store and send the mms messages and it will then be all working for you.

Their is no other way of updating your phone without having the settings sent to your phone so try their web site or give them a call if their is no option on their site to send the settings yourself.

let me know if you have any problems

My Sony Ericsson W995 will not send or receive picture messages

These settings are operator specific. I know with Vodafone you can go on to their web site or into a shop give your phone number and they will send you the settings in an update like a text message. I suggest you have a look with your operators web site.

Hi my wife has the same phone and she also had problems with picture messaging.and i suspect you are unable to send or receive pictures via bluetooth and it was the configuration settings also with vodafone, get them to send it again and tell them again its the multimedia configuration settings you need as it took a couple of goes to get someone helpful to send the correct settings hopefully once they do it correctly you should be up and running good luck !

Unable to send/rec pictures SE W850i


I think the problem here is with your connection. I understand that you have the right settings from your operator...however you should check with them to see if your line is data enabled for MMS (this is how your pictures are an MMS message).

Can't receive pictures

Hi ya sounds like the problem is with the setting on your phone also sending pictures from different makes of phone sometimes dont work as their picture might be a different format to your phone.
If the problem is your setting then you can ring your service provider tell them that you need the settings for mms they will send you a text message that will updat your phone.

Also depending on what network you are on if you go onto your service providers web site some networks give you the option of sending your phone the setting this way but i know the tect message works because i use it myself when i change networks.

Let me know how you get on ok
