Default UK Orange MMS won't send attached pictures??

Please Login to Remove!


Hi all,

I have had 4 different 8900 handsets and all 4 have refused to send pictures via MMS whilst on GPRS. I can send contacts or text via MMS but not pictures. My account at Orange allows me unlimited data and MMS facility as they have checked and double checked. I have had numerous level 3 techs trying to sort this out and all to no avail. We have deleted service books, changed firewall, picture settings, browser settings etc etc and still no joy!!

I can send MMS pictures when on UMA/WiFi so I can't understand why GPRS can't? At the Orange shop a member of staff tried to send MMS pictures and that handset also failed to send the MMS picture. I can however receive MMS pictures.

Has anybody an answer ??

Has anybody ever sent on Orange UK a MMS picture that has been delivered using GPRS ?

Or are we all having this problem with Orange ??

Default my 1st thread

Hi there, had the same issues with MMS UK Orange. Orange service and knowledge sucks. Playing around with my phone a tried a process of elimination. I seemed to have cured the issue by changing the options in MMS to untick the box which states 'block anonymous'. Worth a try.
