I'm terrible with technology and wandering if someone can help me set up my Motorola V360 for sending picture messages (MMS? is that what they're called?)... I've been searching heaps...and all I come up with is T-mobile and cingular and stuff that sounds jargony to me.

these txt messages are in fact being sent BY A PERSON, from a website. It's easy to send txt messages from a website, and would require that someone know your cell number, and that they are intentionally wanting to be annonymous!!! it's the new technology being used by people who know how to use it. You SHOULD also know that you should be able to log into your cell account online, and set your preferences to NOT receive emails from websites. I just did this myself, through Verizon!!! Works great.
Windows-based devices, from my understanding, can not send/receive pic messages without a seperate program installed. Depending on your phone service provider, picture message receiving/sending is internet based. There are several programs online that allow you to receive the pic messages directly to your phone, the one that I use is sMMS, i believe, and its only 5 bucks to get the full version. I recommend that program, but there might be others out there that are cheaper/free.
It could be based on your location and the amount of service towers that are in your area. To send an MMS you need a good, strong connection. Try these first.
You need to set it to Vodafone in two places - first of all you need to
go into messages, then press your menu (top center) key, then go into
"inbox setup" or "message setup" (can't remember what it's called).
Then select MMS message setup, scroll down to the last option (which I
think from memory is called "server info") and make sure it's set to
use the Vodafone option.
This is in addition to making sure that "web sessions" is defaulted too.
now both those options are set, give it another go. If it still doesn't
work, give the manufacturer a call - they'll also walk you through the settings
and make sure they're correct. There may be something at their end (on
your service) which they need to change to make it work.
