To get MMS to work you need to configure the settings manually or send an OTA update via the Sony Ericsson Support Site.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,

The settings for mms mut be wrong you need to get the settings from your phone service provider, they can also provide you with instructions on how to enter the details, but you really have to contact them for the details.

I need an unlocking code for my Sony Ericsson Xperia E15i


How to use the Unlock Code (This will be emailed along with your codes)

How to enter the Unlocking Code for a Sony Ericsson Model phone General Information about your Sony Ericsson unlock code
When you receive your email with your unique Sony Ericsson unlocking codes, you may see there's actually more than one code, as some models require more than one code to unlock them fully. However, for simplicity, we do aim to send you a single unlock code, which will be your network unlock code (known as the NCK).

(See below for more details about code formats and more - Please read all before you start unlocking?)



Option 1 - Sony Ericsson Models
1. Turn on the phone without SIM Card in it
2. Press the 'left arrow' or joystick left once
3. Press the * (Star) button twice
4. Press the 'left arrow' or joystick left once
5. The phone will display one of either messages saying 'Personalize with MNC2' or 'Personalize with MNC3'
6. Wait approximately 5 seconds.
7. The phone will display 'Network' and a picture of a closed padlock.
8. Press Select.
9. The phone will display 'Unlock (Net) 5' and 'NCK:'
10. You can now enter the Unlock Code provided.



Option 2 - Sony Ericsson Models
1. Turn on the phone without SIM Card in it
2. Press the 'left arrow' or joystick left once
3. Press the * (Star) button twice
4. Press the 'left arrow' or joystick left once
5. The phone will display the message 'Personalize with MNC2'
6. You can now enter the Unlock Code provided.



Note for options 1 & 2
- When doing the first 5 steps above you'll need to do it quite quickly. - If your phone has a joystick 'JOGDIAL' you must press the 'down arrow' instead of the 'left arrow' in steps 2 to 3 above. By 'Down Arrow' we mean move the joystick down



-------------------------------------------------------------
Quick Glossary
NCK = Network lock
SPCK = Service provider corporate lock
SPK = Service provider lock



Code formats you may receive for Sony Ericsson models:
Wherever possible we'll try and send you just a single unlocking code to unlock your Sony Ericsson.
However for certain models we may need to send you more than one code, even if you don't use them all.

It would be a sting of codes as per this example:

CCK: 0984118391686835 or 0984118391686835
ESCK: 0000000000000000 or 0000000000000000
NCK: 4176979876474847 or 4176979876474847
NSCK: 3908320398047435 or 3908320398047435
PCK: 2061751224321908 or 2061751224321908
SPCK: 9960493992337231 or 9960493992337231

Note: The NCK (Network unlocking code) is the main and usually the only one you'll need.



Please note:
- If you see the message 'NCK: (0)' or 'Not Allowed', this means the phone is hard-locked. The phone cannot be unlocked because there has been more than 5 wrong unlock attempts.
- If your Sony Ericsson has a Joystick, then you must press the DOWN Arrow instead of the LEFT Arrow. DOWN Arrow meaning Joystick downwards

Hello,

No there are not any settings that would block yourself from sending mms messages. There is a small chance the other person can't receive them.

See if you can't send an mms to someone else.

The other possibility is your phone is somehow not cooperating with mms's..Call your service provider and they might be able to assist you better.

My blackjack phone wont let me download my pic messages when received


this is most likely caused by the fact that you do not have a data plan for multimedia txt messages such as pic messages if you have unlimited txting that is for txt ONLY and you will have to pay for a data plan for multimedia txt messages as well

K810i contacts


The pic only appears when receiving a call from a contact stored on your phone. Provided you linked a pic to that contact. Not when you receive a txt.
