Phone Sending MMS Messages as Default

Everytime I send a text message, it sends it in the form of a MMS message or picture phone. How do I set my text messages to "Text Reply" or "Text Messages" instead of MMS messages?

Re: 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.

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:

No there are not any settings that would block yourself from sending mms messages. There is a small chance the other person can't receive them.

See if you can't send an mms to someone else.

The other possibility is your phone is somehow not cooperating with mms's..Call your service provider and they might be able to assist you better.

Cant recieve pictures

Your phone cannot receive picture messages or MMS if the GPRS setting is not configured properly. Call your network service provider and ask for the settings. They will send it to you and give you instructions and information in the use of the MMS service. Usually there is a load requirement in receiving and sending MMS if you are using a prepaid sim.

Want to set up receive and send picture messages

n order to activate MMS (picture, audio video messages) settings you are required to call your customer care and ask them what sms you have to send in order to receive mms settings. Once you get the settings save them on your phone and make it default settings. Switch off your mobile take out your sim for 02 minutes and restart your mobile with sim inside it. Now you are ready for sending or receiving picture messages.

Sending all texts as mms instead of sms.

clean up ALL your messages.
For some reason when you are full up on messages instead of telling you it will just start sending MMS instead of SMS messages.
Just got to Menu > Messaging > Options > Cleanup Messages > All
After that, it will start sending SMS again.
