How about in emails? Can you send them that way from your phone? It's kind of a sucky work around, but a work around none the less.
As yet I have not tried sending via email but I will get round to it. I usually send photos from my PC anyway and it's not too much of a nuisance to transfer photos to computer as I won't be beaten. I just find it odd that i never had problems with my previous smart phone and it was with o2.
Am now looking into my APN settings in case something there is amiss. Head is aching with it all so going to switch off for now and look again tomorrow. Cheers.
It is my preferred method. My SMS app is set up to delete old messages after a limit that I set so sending through email lets me not have to worry about saving pictures before the autodelete kicks in. I would call o2 though and find out the real reasoning behind MMS limitations. Maybe it is something simple on their end.
Am adding to my original thread in case this helps someone else. Recently my son was annoyed that every time he sent me a picture message I had to inform him it never downloads so he suggested I check my o2 MMS settings. I had always presumed they would be correct as when I bought the phone the guy in o2 shop assured me he had set them up for me and I had no reason to think otherwise. However, today I googled 'MMS settings/o2' and sure enough they were different to what was on my phone. Once I altered them I can now send and receive MMS. So it looks like this had been my problem all along.
Season's Greetings everyone.
