with an MMS-enabled phone you can: Take digital photographs and store photographs on the Internet Send and receive full colour pictures Send and receive voice clips Add a text message to your picture Purchase pictures and sounds from the Internet Have enhanced polyphonic ringtones MMS runs over GPRS. You normally need to subscribe to a GPRS tariff, and have 'Media Messaging' enabled by your network operator. You will need a phone handset that supports the MMS service - If you receive an MMS message and don't have a suitable handset or GPRS service, you'll receive a standard SMS text message, and will be able to view the message at the web address included with the text message.
If the MMS (picture messaging) is not working after 24 hours, contact your cellular service provider and discuss the problem with Customer Service. The phone - if new - should be able to MMS out of the box - provided that it was not purchased used, is unlocked from another service provider or purchased off eBay (where many problematic phones are sold.)
You will need to get the settings from your service provider (people who supply your sim) and check with them that mms and gprs is enabled on your sim. Enter the settings they give you in the connection settings screen on the phone (start -> Settings ->connections->gprs (if the phone menus are still at there default)
one set for mms and another for gprs
input the settings and set "connects to" to internet
input the settings and set "connects to" to mms
