A guide to Multimedia Messaging Services

Smart phones can send two types of messages: SMS and MMS. Mobile SMS messages are simple text messages; there are no picture attachments, hyperlinks, or animated emoticons. What is an MMS message? MMS stands for multimedia messaging services, and this is the type of message that you send when you send a photo from your iPhone or send a link to a YouTube video from a phone.

MMS messages

There are many free services to send free text messages online, but those websites are for sending SMS messages — the basic messages that say 'thank you' or 'let's meet at the cinema at 6.'
MMS services It is hard to justify free MMS services because of the amount of data involved in MMS messaging. You use MMS to send pictures, and mobile MMS plans can be more expensive than regular text plans. An MMS with video clips is going to use more space on the MMS server than a simple SMS text message.
MMS setting MMS settings change if you are using the 3G network or the WiFi network. For example, you can send an MMS message from an iPhone only if you have a data plan; even if you have a text plan with WiFi, you can not send an MMS message.
Orange MMS Orange MMS plans vary by the type of phone, the plan type (if it is a pay as you go pack or a monthly plan) and the duration of the plan; a 24-month data unlimited plan is less expensive than a 12-month data unlimited plan.

Sending MMS messages from your computer

If you want to send an MMS message online, the easiest way is to send a message from your email account to a mobile phone number. Some mobile sites will let you send MMS messages; UK customers can log into their Orange, T-Mobile, or O2 accounts and see if that option is available between phone customers. There is a possibility of sending SMS messages; Orange will even let you send a simple text message to a land-line phone and a computer voice will read the text message when the recipient answers the land-line phone.
Text4freeonline.com Text4freeonline.com has a service that will allow you to attach photos to an SMS message, making it an MMS message. This is a free way to send an MMS message from your computer. The recipient's phone will have to allow incoming MMS messages for the photo to be viewed.
