Sony w850i - no option to send text message

I just got a replacement phone. The problem is, it will allow me to send a picture message or an email, but not a text... the option just isn't there. Even when i reply to a text, it uses the picture editor and sends a picture message.

Is it borked or am i being stupid?

Cheers

    Hiya,



    Thank for the quick response. I'm in th UK.



    It's a replacement from the orange insurance folks. I believe they use refurbished phones, so it's possible the settings are screwed.



    I'll go to an orange shop and ask them to sort it.



    Thanks for your time fella.

In your Menu/Messaging/Settings/Text Message/Service Centre make sure you have your Service provider's Message Centre number.
MMS are different settings.

    The Message Centre number is some times on the SIM card. I don't know where you live, it could be different in your country. But you can enter it manually, whichever way it has to be the number your service provider give you including country code. It could also be different for a contract phone or a pay as you go.

    SMS use different settings to MMS.

    To set Message Centre number go to:

    Messaging/Settings/Text message/Service centre. If there's a number there already it's stored on the SIM card.

    If you don't have the full Menu on your phone, go back to the shop where you bought the phone and ask them to reset it.

Can i email a photo from my samsung c5220 mobile phone to my computer


Yes, but it is set up to text the picture by default so you'll need to switch to letters 'Abc' in options. Next, type in your email address instead of a phone number then press send. This will send the picture to your email just like you would normally send a text. ***This is all written under the assumption that you have PICTURE MESSAGING included in your rate plan. I hope this helps you.

How to make folder games on my samsung sgh-l700


  1. Open your favorite email service. Please note that your email provider must allow for the automatic forwarding of emails. Gmail is one good service that supports auto-forwarding.
  2. Tell your email client to forward all emails to your phone's email address: yournumber@mms.uscc.net (for example, if your number was (111) 222-3344, your phone's email address would be 1112223344@mms.uscc.net.) This will forward all emails to your cell phone, but will treat them like picture messages. Handling the email as a picture message will ensure that every character in the message is included. There is a way to send the email as a text (SMS) message1, but there is a character limit of 160, so many messages will come in sets of 4, 5, even up to 20 text messages.
  3. If you wish, you can set your phone to auto-download picture messages, so every time you receive a message, it is already downloaded and ready to read (this is our recommendation). Consult your owner's manual for more information.

I want to send picture texts on my apple iphone, how do i do this? i know i can email them but the other persons phone only has picture texts not email and i still want to send pxts.


Depends what Iphone you have, they can only be sent if you have OS 3.0, and only on Iphone 3G or 3GS.
To enable MMS go to settings/messages then turn MMS messaging on.
You compose mms from the same program (messaging) but there are options there to add pictures and audio

TEXTING PICTURES


Check with your provider to make sure you have picture messaging enabled in your account, then turn phone OFF and back ON, send one of those pictures to yourself, meaning select picture messaging and send a picture message to your own cellphone number, if you phone receives that picture back, that means you are ready to send all the pictures you want out f your phone.
Will be much easier to send then to your email address.
Also check with your carrier to see if they have an ONLINE ALBUM option, if so you can upload pictures to that ONLINE ALBUM and access them thru the internet on a computer.
If you are lucky enougth to have BLUETOOTH on your phone and your carrier allows it, you could go to WALMART and find one of the BLUETOOTH Enable printing stations and send those pictures thru bluetooth and print them
Let me know if you need help
Thanks
