MMS (Picture Messaging) and Non-Smart Phones

I have managed to send (but not receive) MMS messages on my flip phone. Since there is not a lot on this forum pertaining to non-smart phones this post is to document the steps it took so that anyone looking for help might be able to have a starting point for their phone. These steps are based on a LG A341.

 

You will notice very quickly that the order of these steps matter.

 

Legend:

Blue is the main menu.

Green are menu options in the bottom corners.

 

Set Up Access Point

Settings -> Connection -> Access Points -> New

Connection Title: PM

Authentication: No Auth

APN: sp.mb.com

Save

 

Set Up Internet Profile

Settings -> Connection -> Internet Profiles -> New

Profile Name: PM

Use Proxy: Off

Access Point: PM

Save

 

Set Up Message Center

Messaging -> Message Settings -> Multimedia Message -> Message Center -> Options -> New

Name:  Public Mobile

MMSC URL: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/mb/mmsc

Internet Profile: PM

Save

Activate *This is very important and easily overlooked*

 

Restart Your Phone *also easy to overlook*

 

As mentioned above I can only send not receive picture messages. I will update this post when/if I manage to get the receiving half working. Also if you have different steps for your make/model of non-smart phone I will gladly add them.

Charanth182,

Thank you very much for your post.

It, no doubt, will be very helpful to those with the same phone and same problem.

I look forward to your next post, detailing what changes were necessary to receive MMS.

Cheers!

Completely agree with @Martin. Great initiative @Charanth182 - this really will be helpful for customers who aren't using smart phones and wanting to use MMS.


In addition, I must confess that the choices of tags in your post made me smile Smiley Happy

@Charanth182, Like I had said in my Previous replies that it was possible to do what you had wanted to do on a Flip Phone but it was complicated but I am glad you got it to work

@chukdefatey

 

You are completely correct. Possible yet unnessisarily difficult.

 

@Martin

 

Thanks! I hope to figure out the recieving part soon too :).

 

@Mansi_G

 

If you refer to the "dumb phone" tag. Its compeltely thanks to @chukdefatey as that's how he refered to it when he replied to me as i was trying to figure it all out, i hadn't thought of them that way until then.

@dumbphone  Maybe post some screenshots of your APN settings so that we may be able to help you. Smiley Happy
