Principles On Setting Up MMS On My Mobile

 By: Dennis Moore Hopkins
The wonders of a mobile phone used to revolve around the fact that one could have a conversation with another without the constraints of location, perimeter and dangling cables. With the advent of text messaging, we progressed into an era of communicating without visual contact. We were freed of time constraints as we responded as and when we wished to. There was no longer the need to heed to a clamoring phone. Picture messaging advanced us a step further as we now transmitted still and moving pictures with sound alongside our text messages. To enjoy this functionality, comes the inevitable question on how do I set up MMS on my mobile. There lies the rub.

Before getting all hot and flustered on this matter, it is best to make clear that owning a mobile phone which supports MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) is first and foremost vital. Safe to say, most current generation phones support this feature with the exception of a few museum pieces still in use. MMS also runs over GPRS (General Packet Radio Service), a protocol used for data transmission over a mobile network. In layman's terms, you have to speak the common language, which is GPRS, in order to communicate with others via MMS. Moving along, you may need to subscribe to a MMS plan with your current mobile operator. This again is where confusion abounds as mobile operators seem to relish in the joy of offering plans of perplexing combinations. Depending on your type and volume of usage, budget and phone behavior, there is probably a plan to suit your requirements. Alternatively, pay as you use which may sometimes be more costly but less of a hassle.

How do I set up MMS on my mobile can turn out to be a loaded question as there are as many methods as there are mobile phones and operators. However, they pretty much abide by the same principles. Go to the messaging option and select the settings for multimedia messaging. Select a profile for MMS and enter relevant details for gateway and message servers, username and password and whatever else as stated by your mobile operator. Once done, test the MMS functionality on your mobile. If you encounter any problems, seek assistance from your operator. To save yourself the trouble, paying a visit to your mobile operator's service center may be a better option as their staff configure and test your mobile's MMS on the spot.

As a frequent traveler, it is recommended you subscribe to a MMS plan which is friendly to your budget and allows you to enjoy MMS without having to tweak settings as you bounce between countries and operators. Since MMS setting details entered into your mobile are exclusive in terms of IP addresses, URLs, usernames and passwords, these should be unique worldwide. Hence, there should be no conflicts thus ensuring smooth usage of MMS.
