SOURCE: Can't sent picture messages

This is merely a setting on the phone. Contact the cell phone provider IE Vodafone etc and ask them to send the MMS settings for the phone. This will enable you to forward the messages to other people.

Yes then can still text, There's no way of blocking people from texting you on the tocco phone, you can only block them from calling.

Phone wont send or received texts or go into

when a phone does not receive or send text messages, it is either caused by the message setting of the phone or the phone has contacted a VIRUS.

You will need to reset the phone or check the message settings if it as been tampered with.

Take care.

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).

I am unable to send any sms or view them from my new t303

I had the same problem & contacted my service provider, they advised the problem was actually with my sim card which was old & not compatible with the phone, A new sim was sent out & I can now send & receive sms without any problems.

Hi mate,

seems that you don't have the correct setting to send messages/pic messages. u need to have a look on the vodaphone website for these settings, once u enter them in your phone it should work fine..

vodaphone i think have a method of sending u the setting via a text message if you enter you phone number i am not sure if this is available in all countries but have a look.

here is a link to the manual [note PDF link]

Hope it helps
