    Jonathan,



    Thanks for your response and I asked a wireless rep. who told me since this is an AT&T phone and I have T Mobile then that is the problem. Something to do with AT&T not allowing it or some reason like that.

    If that's the problem, is that suppose to happen on all phones? because I had a Sony Ericsson and picture text messaging was fine.

Hi Brad,

I apologize for the delayed response - you may have already resolved this, but here's a quick update anyway.

Based on the issue that you're describing, it sounds like there's a fairly good chance that Text Messaging and/or Multimedia Messaging may not be properly provisioned on your wireless account.

To resolve this, you'll likely need to contact Customer Service and check to see whether you have SMS or MMS features listed on your account and what those features cover. (If the services are listed on your account, check to see whether the services are pay-per-use or bundled.)

Let us know whether or not you were able to resolve the issue!
Thanks,
Jonathan

    Interesting... thanks for the update Brad!



    SMS and MMS travel over a different range of frequency from standard voice communications, but it's not AT&T-specific bandwidth. One of my friends used an unlocked AT&T BlackJack II for a while with his T-Mobile SIM, and I'm pretty sure that he was able to using messaging functionality - I'll touch base and see what I can find.



    Out of curiosity, do you have a data plan? You might consider creating/configuring two connections in Settings > Connections > GPRS. Take a look at the connections outlined near the top of the page at http://mazimi.wordpress.com/2007/06/14/s....



    After adding these connections, make sure that T-Mobile has you setup for a messaging plan and give it another shot. I'd be surprised if T-Mobile turned down a request for additional monthly charges just to keep you from using an AT&T phone, so at the very least they should be able to add a texting/multimedia package and let you give it a try.



    If you have the interest/time to complete the process above we'd definitely be interested to hear how things go!



    Thanks again,

    Jonathan

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).

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.

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.
