Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

MMS messaging? Sooo...I have text messaging on my phone. Only it's regular text messaging...not multimedia messaging. The problem is that when I send text messages...it says I'm sedning multimedia messages. Someone told me to go to my messaging center on my phone...go to message setup...go to text message setup...and swicth reply type to sms. The problem is...when I go to my text message setup...the options on there are "Email gateway" Service Centre No." and "Use GPRS" and I have no idea what any of those things are. However, when I go to MMS (multimedia) messaging setup...it has reply type and says that I can change it to sms...but I don't know if that will fix it to where all of the texts that I send are sms texts or not since it is under MMS messaging setup. I need help.

My android Samsung phone will not send sms to one contact but it will send mms what's wrong


It means that the person you are sending to either has an older phone that will not accept multimedia messages or that there contract plan does not include MMS. If it is the other way around, you need to contact your cellphone provider, unless your texts are over 140 characters..

Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a standard way to send messages that include multimedia content to and from mobile phones over a cellular network. Users and providers may refer to such a message as a PXT, a picture message, or a multimedia message.[1] The MMS standard extends the core SMS (Short Message Service) capability, allowing the exchange of text messages greater than 160 characters in length. Unlike text-only SMS, MMS can deliver a variety of media, including up to forty seconds of video, one image, a slideshow of multiple images, or audio.
The most common use involves sending photographs from camera-equipped handsets.[citation needed] Media companies have utilized MMS on a commercial basis as a method of delivering news and entertainment content, and retailers have deployed it as a tool for delivering scannable coupon codes, product images, videos, and other information.
The 3GPP and WAP groups fostered the development of the MMS standard, which is now continued by the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA).

this is not really a problem but understanding should be clear:
Multimedia Messaging Service(MMS)

MMS is a descendant of SMS (Short Messaging Service). MMS extends text messaging to include longer text, graphics, photos, audio clips, video clips, or any combination of the above, within certain size limits.

MMS is frequently used to send photos and videos from camera phones to other MMS phones or email accounts. Most camera phones have MMS, but many non-camera phones have it as well.

if it has a photo, video or audio it will automatically be categorize as MMS
While SMS stands for short message service. SMS is also often referred to as texting, sending text messages or text messaging. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. purely text:

I cannot receive multimedia mail. How do I get it to work?


here is a general procedure to understand how MMS works. In this procedure, a photo is being sent to another compatible phone.
  • Step one: Take a photo from your built-in camera phone or download via the Internet.
  • Step two: Personalize the text, graphics, audio or video clips.
  • Step three: Add recipients' number and send.
The recipient on the other side will receive a message alert. Once he opens the message, a picture message will appear on the screen. If there is any text, it will appear below the image. In case, you send MMS to a non-compatible cell phone - the recipient will a SMS with a default line, "You have been sent a picture message!"
There are many challenges that exist with MMS:
  • Adaptation of multimedia content: There may be a difference in the compatibility of multimedia content for different brands of cell phones. If the network operator is supporting your content adaptation - you can enjoy compatibility with more networks and vice versa.
  • Cell phone configuration: Multimedia Messaging Service requires some parameters to be correctly placed in you handset. Sometimes, due to poor configuration, you may not receive messages.
  • Bulk messaging: Sometimes, if you send MMS to a large number of subscribers, there might be some difficulty in sending messages. Now transactional overloads are being optimized.
Moreover, there are several similar terms such as Enhanced Messaging Service (EMS) - very similar to SMS (Short Messaging Service), allowing you to send or receive messages with some special text formatting options such as bold, color, sound effect, icons, etc.

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.
