Text Messaging randomly turns into Multimedia Messaging
The last couple of days, when I go to send a text message, the message area is in the multimedia message format. I can not figure out how to switch it back to regular old text messaging. I have tried turning the phone off, but to no avail. As far as I know, I did not change it to multimedia messaging... the phone just switches to that setting by itself somehow. Does anyone have any ideas?

Check out the section on Messaging page 65 in your manual: Important!: When creating a message, adding an image, a sound file, or a video clip to a text message changes the message from a text message to a multimedia message.

It is for sending text with animations or photos, video clips, etc. U need to have MMS connection in ur mobile to send text with animations. ===============================================
