Default MMS

Hi Guys!

just a quick question... How to send an MMS? And what to do to receive one?

I can't receive any MMS (I haven't been using them for ages, don't need them) but now some1 have to send me an MMS and...

It looks like I've all those settings, my simcard is activated etc- but i can't even see an option to compose one...

What I'm doing wrong then?

Cheers
Chris

Thanks for your reply- unfortunately is not any helpful. I should mention that I'm using o2 rom with o2 settings. I can see those settings...

Hi Guys!

If you can send/receive MMSes can you please tell how to send one?
What should I have in my menus? And why I can see all those settings but can't send?

Cheers Guys!

Ok, what I've tried next:

1. checking MMS settings (yes, they are in MENU)
2. taking a picture and tried to send this picture as a MMS (didn't work twice, Exec has just hang)
3. found http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ht=o2+settings and tried to applay those settings one more time. No joy...

Strange thing is that I don't have MMS folder but I do have MMS settings
Any other ideas? I really need MMSes (like never before, I'm heavy user but just calls and GPRS/WIFi- no texts (10-20/mth) or MMSes (5 in my whole life or even less)

Cheers
Chris

I'm so sorry for all those stupid grammatical mistakes I was sooo tiered last night and really fed up with MS and their ideas how to improve our lives...

Default T-Mobile MMS Settings?

Originally, I wrote:

I have a similar problem with my Jasjar and T-Mobile (USA): MMS messages just sit there, and occasionally I get a notification that they couldn't be sent...? My Jasjar was purchased independently and is unlocked. Is there some T-Mobile USA file I need to upload to the device? And can I do it via my Mac and Missing Sync?
Well, I uploaded a T-Mobile settings file which I had downloaded from i-mate, et voilá! I was able to send MMSes. It also (when I choose to disconnect from the GPRS network) restored the G-in-a-square that had become dashed two-way arrows. Unfortunately, there's still something interfering with syncing with my Mac via Missing Sync for Windows Mobile.... Thanks! Cheers,

Has either one of you tried to contact your provider and actually ask them to help you with the settings? I mean really, CALL customer service and have them either walk you through it, or get the settings and we'll help you input them if it comes to that.

Hi,

No, I havn't. The reason is that I do have:

- VGA hack (OZ)
- load of programs (which shouldn't affect anyway MMS as they are not affecting emails and texts)
- I've done full backup + restore using SPB backup tool (from older ROM to newer, as my phone went for service)

Now I going to do hard reset.
I just have to create list of installed programs, prepare them etc.

I've even installed windows

Anyway, it looks like something is going on with MMSes...

Cheers
Chris

None of the things you mentioned can be used as an excuse for not calling your provider of the settings:
a. OzVGA has a nice little button which will allow you to boot in normal mode.
b. Nothing to do with MMS
c. That might be a problem altogether, it's generally not recommended restoring on newer ROM.

Oh, yeah,

I do agree. As I've said only my backup could mess up with settings...
Will try to call O2 HD tomorrow


Thanks for your advice!

Cheers
Chris.
