Default MMS Push Instead of SMS

Please Login to Remove!

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to setup your e-mail push filters to send MMS messages that resembled the HTML e-mail that you received?

i can see the value of this idea, however, i would personally not do this because 1. I don't need to view full html emails on my phone, and 2. It would make my unlimited email go through my limited number of SMS/MMS. This might be useful to other people though.

I can do without HTML on the email, just give me the text and message to read; "Just the data, ma'am!"

I think it's better to have the option than no choice at all. I vote 'perhaps'.

I wish there was a way for me to post anonymously because I'd do it right now for the question I'm about to ask.

What is the difference between MMS and SMS?

From Wikipedia.org:

"Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a standard for a telephony messaging systems that allow sending messages that includes multimedia objects (images, audio, video, rich text) and not just text as in Short Message Service (SMS)."
