    How Can I Choose Between SMS and MMS?

    When I have to send a message I can only choose a button which says "SMS/MMS" and it is the phone to decide which to send: SMS if the message contains only text, MMS if it also contains any other content.

    I want to be able to decide to send MMS even if my message contains only text.
    Is there a way to do this?
    Does any app exist for this?

    I am not aware of any app that can do this because SMS and MMS are services, both of which operate in different ways. Some SMS apps will convert LONG text messages to MMS, typically on CDMA networks (like Sprint or Verizon in the US) due to the 160 character limit per message. Basically, once it his this character limit, it converts the message to MMS. If my understanding is correct, the text message is now a picture. I do not know for sure how it all works, but I have never heard of an app that uses a carrier's SMS/MMS services to do what you would like to do.

    Is there any particular reason you are trying to accomplish this? There could be an alternative method to accomplish your goal.
