Nokia 808 PureView - Send a message

Keep in touch with your family and friends through text and multimedia messages.

  1. Select qtg-toolbar-menu.jpg > Messaging and New message icon.

  2. To add a contact as a recipient, select To. You can also type in a phone number.

  3. Write your message in the text box, then select Done icon.

    Tip: To include an attachment, such as a photo or video, select Add attachment icon.

  4. Select Send message icon.

Tip: To send a message to a contact from your contacts list, select and hold a contact, then select Send message.

Sending a message with an attachment may be more expensive than sending a normal text message. For more information, contact your service provider.

You can send text messages that are longer than the character limit for a single message. Longer messages are sent as two or more messages. Your service provider may charge accordingly.

Characters with accents, other marks, or some language options, take more space, limiting the number of characters that can be sent in a single message.

If a text message is very long, it may be converted to a multimedia message. If you want to send the message as a text message, select Options icon > Sending options > Message type > Text.

If you send a text message to one or more recipients, and the contact information of one of the recipients is a mail address instead of a phone number, the text message is converted to a multimedia message.

If the item you insert in a multimedia message is too large for the network, the device may automatically reduce the size.

Only compatible devices can receive and display multimedia messages. Messages may look different in different devices.
