    Problem is that when I create it, it's a SMS, but as soon as I press "send to" it changes to a MMS.

Your phone ran out of memory and the only way the messages could be sent or received is through mms on the phone. You need to clear out the in and out box often so the phone will not do this. Also you must reboot the phone after you have cleared out the in and out box. Then it should work.

Hi, your phone has 4 options to send messages.
When you select (menu) > messages > Create message... you have the option of selecting "New SMS (or Short Msg)", "New MMS (or Multimedia Msg)", "New email" and "MMS Templates". You have to select "New SMS" or "New Short Msg" to send a normal text message.

    You need to reinstall the software in the phone, if you don't know how to do this, take it to the service center.

My phone will only send multi media messages?


I did more searching and found the answer! Clean out your inbox and outbox, and your phone should go back to sending normal messages. You might need to restart it afterward.

TEXT MESSAGES WITH PICTURE ATTACHMENTS


Have you checked to see if the websessions information iis correct in order for your wifes phone to access the internet for Cingular. Go to your Main Menu and click select on the browser icon. Now scroll to find WEBSESSIONS and click SELECT. Depending on where the cell phone came from initially it will either have just a couple of choices or a lot of choices here. You need to locate either a Cingular3 or MEdia Net. These are usually what the setting name is called. You need to verify that these settings are correct for your AT&T service. I do not know if it is ok for me to put the info here. So I will tell you where you can find it.
You need to go to the at&t website for support/tutorials. It is: https://www.wireless.att.com/support/ This should take you to the correct arera. You need to make sure that your checking info for a V3 razr, go to PHONE/DEVICE SUPPORT and then click on TUTORIALS. This should take you to where you need. If the phone showing is not a v3 you need to change it to a v3 by clicking on the (not my phone/device? link located under the cell phone picture.). Under SELECT CATEGORY you need to go to TEXT MESSAGING-SMS, under the SELECT TUTORIAL click on SEND/RECEIVE TEXT MESSAGE. This will give you the information you need to hopefully fix your wifes phone so that she can use Multi-Media. Unfortunately when a phone is unlocked it won't always work for Multi-Media. For example: if the phone was initially a T-Mobile phone the settings for Multi-Media will not be set up for AT&T. They are different. I hope I have helped you.

Motorola razr unable to send multi media texts?


Most likely, your provider did not activate the text messaging for sending. The phone company has to activate the features to allow usage.

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.
