I have tmobile and can not send or recieve mms messages keeps telling me no message setteing for mms how do i fix this ? please help thank jimmy cosby the phone is a blue lg ks365 please help wit this...

HI jcosby007 Ok you need to get to the menu settings on the phone. Power cycling really doesn't help you in this case. Once you get to mms settings you need to hit the options. In the options it should give you a viewing options for your messages. You need to set it to time and make sure it doesn't say contacts. Also make sure that the phone isn't block by att from recieving mms txts. those are picture messages. Hope this help

When I go to send the picture in a text message a box comes up and says the I need to enable my mobile settings I have tried to change everything in my mobile settings and get the same message every time.

Once you dump a picture inside a text message that becomes picture message or mms. Hence, you can't directly send the mms through your mobile without getting settings from your service provider call your service provider and ask them to send mms settings to you and then you can send picture messages. Caution mms messages are costlier than text messages.
