N900 Video: Send & Receive MMS (using fMMS)

LLAADD.

Ok, I’ve had the fMMS application on my phone for a little while and just recently worked out how to get it configured for my phone so thought I’d share it with you all.

Note: This application is in the extras-devel application catalogue so as always be careful installing anything from there…you don’t want to mess up your phone.


(sorry for the varying quality…still getting used to my camera and video editor)

I hope this has helped and I just wanted to add a couple of things:

  • Although I said in the video you can’t add another APN, I just found out you can using fAPN from the extras-testing catalogue.
  • Always enter numbers in international format, i.e. +447700000000 (Some times when people have selected contacts from phonebook, fMMS does not select the correct one so type the number manually until it is fixed)
  • When you receive an MMS and fMMS is not open, you will need to just tap on the “new message” popup then load fMMS to open it.
  • You have to manually switch to GSM and make sure it is not on WiFi when you are trying to send/open a message otherwise it will just never be able to send/receive and the application will freeze.
  • Currently only images are supported.

    Hey Guyz !!!

    I am facing a very wired problem regarding sending MMS. I have already installed fMMS and i am able to receive MMS but when i was trying to send MMS to other number , other number got my MMS but there was no photo or object. I tried so many ways but i cant get any solution over this. Plz any one help me to solve this problem. 😦

    • May 24, 2010 at 4:46 pm

      it may be issue with the person receiving the image (only image is supported by fMMS). could be either:
      1) Receiving phone does not have settings – best way to test their phone is to send an MMS to themselves, that way you can test if sending and receiving is working. If this works, try sending to and receiving from someone else. For settings see above or contact your network.
      2) The image you are trying to send is too big – some devices have limit on image size which can be received, this can be limit on hight and width and/or limit on file size, i.e. max 512KB, try sending file in “small” size settings on fMMS
      3) hopefully it’s not this but it could be just that your device or the receiver’s device is faulty but this is hard to test!
      ]
      Good luck
