Learn how to send and receive text and multimedia messages.
Text messagesText messages
Your device supports text messages beyond the 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, and limit the number of characters that can be sent in a single message.
The total number of characters left and the number of messages needed for sending are displayed.
To send messages, the correct message centre number must be stored in your device. Normally, this number is set by default through your SIM card.
To set the number manually, do the following:
Select Menu > Messaging > More > Message settings > Text messages > Message centre.
Enter the name and number supplied by your service provider.
Multimedia messagesMultimedia messages
A multimedia message can contain text, pictures, and sound or video clips.
Only devices that have compatible features can receive and display multimedia messages. The appearance of a message may vary depending on the receiving device.
The wireless network may limit the size of MMS messages. If the inserted picture exceeds this limit, the device may make it smaller so that it can be sent by MMS.
Important: Exercise caution when opening messages. Messages may contain malicious software or otherwise be harmful to your device or PC.
For availability and subscription to the multimedia messaging service (MMS), contact your service provider.
