Sms messages are changing to mms

In some devices the message type gets converted from SMS text message to MMS multimedia message if the message length exceeds the device-specific setting which is typically 5 - 10 SMS submessages (around 760-1520 characters). If the message is longer, it is converted to MMS to avoid potential issues in handling long text messages in the recipient device. The cost of a SMS message consisting of several concatenated submessages may also be higher than the cost of a single MMS message.
The conversion from SMS text message to MMS multimedia message occurs when the automatic message type is selected in the message options. This is the default mode where the device tries to automatically select the best mode for the message.
The conversion from SMS to MMS can be avoided by selecting Options > Sending options > Message type > Text when in the Text message window writing the message. The message is then always sent as SMS text message and no conversion to MMS occurs.
The maximum number of concatenated SMS submessages can be up to 10 (around 1520 characters). In multimedia mode the message length can be longer.

Received mms but can't retieve

first check that you have the settings and a data plan,contact your provider for this

next thing is file size, a file cant be over the networks capacity which is roughly 300kb there is some networks that can exceed this.

By the sounds of it you've already done this first part but it's worth going through the WAP and MMS settings listed on here with a fine comb to make sure everything is in place and correct. There are slightly different instructions in parts when it comes to the pay monthly and pay as you go bits - obviously make sure the Pay as you go settings are used.

The above will make sure your phone is successfully set up for picture messaging. If it still isn't working then the next bit of troubleshooting would be to check the SIM card is provisioned for MMS and GPRS (internet) on the Vodafone network. You can't do this yourself so it'd be a quick check with customer services to make sure everything is in place and correct. It's also worth asking them to make sure there are no incoming or outgoing bars in place for MMS.

Some information it'd be worth you gathering / posting on here before speaking to customer services would be:

Can you access the internet on your mobile?

What happens when you try and send an MMS to your own mobile?

How big is the MMS you're trying to send? (there's a limit of approx 300kb on most phones)

Are you able to receive MMS from other people?

I can't send video messages on my HTC Inspire.

Open up your video camera. Change the settings so that it is set for MMS. It will decrease the resolution so that it is able to send. Good luck!

I wont to send a video and it wont let me

Either you have to send video through your e-mail by uploading that video or you have to check the maximum size for your MMS video clip length.

I have recorded a video on my lg envy but when I try to send to a friend, it says exceeds maximum file size. How can I fix this and send it?

In MMS the file size limit is 300KB, you'll have to convert your video, in example to 3GP video format, if your phone can't do it, you'll have to transfer video to a PC and use a 3GP converter software. For future video recordings, select the video size optimized for MMS, please check your phone user guide to see how to do this.

Video message keeps saying message capacity is exceeded...i've already moved my photos and songs onto my laptop and i also erased all my txt messages too.


I think its nothing to do with the memory available on your mobile. Every phone has a default capacity to send or recieve MMS(i.e your video message). If you try to send a message that is bigger than this limit u will get this message.

I cannot send videos, it keeps saying max. message exceeded! I have tried every different way to send it but no luck. I have no problems sending images!

try to see how big is your file or video that you want to send, videos and images even file has it own limitation using MMS via phone. others are allowed only up to 300kbps. try to cut out your video to a minimum capacity then send it, that is the reason why your are keep recieving max. message exceeded. It is all about how big is your video.
