    Default T-Mobile MMS Notifications and Sending MMS

    Quick tip on T-Mobile MMS notifications.

    When tmobile accounts are first setup if someone sends you an MMS you will receive a text message stating that someone sent you a picture message and to view it visit tmobilepictures.com

    This web site for viewing MMS messages works quite well on the iphone. The problem is if you had an MMS capable phone on the account before the iphone you will not get these notification text messages. In addition if you ever send an MMS message with another phone or with SwirlyMMS on the account the account is automatically flagged as an MMS capable phone, which disables the notifications and attempts to deliver the picture to the phone. This results in no notification or action on the iphone that someone sent you a message, nothing ever happens.

    I called a couple times today to troubleshoot this issue with customer service.

    I had the data specialist set the flag on the account as a non-mms phone. I then sent myself a test and got the text notification that someone sent me a picture message.

    I then used SwirlyMMS to send a test picture message to someone and again sent myself a picture message and I never got anything on the iphone and the rep saw the flag get removed, making my account an mms capable one.

    Unfortunately if you want to be able to receive MMS notifications you can not send MMS messages with the iphone or any other phone with that SIM card in it since the tmobile network will automatically remove the flag once you send a picture message.

    For now if you want to use SwirlyMMS you will not get the inbound MMS notifications, if you want the notifications and don't care about being able to send MMS without breaking the notifications you can call tmobile and request them to set the mms flag. If you ever send an MMS again with that account it will remove the flag and you will have to call them again to reset the flag.

    I asked about an option to set that flag no matter what and they said at this time there is no way to prevent sending an mms from turning it off.

    im kinda lost on the explanation. lolz:p

    So basically for what i understand, The service is only one way ( either you send or just recive )? You have to decide and sacrifice the other option in order to get the MMS service.


    MMS Send only = NO Incoming MMS

    MMS Recieve only = No send (swirlyMMS)

    Am i correct ?

    thanks

    glad u figured some of this out. kinda cool that we can recieve but kinda gay that we can't send n then recieve. it would work out awesome if i could do that because i would jus view that page every time i got a msg after sending msg's but since it flags the account after i never recieve msg's that are pics. boo

    wish swirley would implement recieving msg's or something hopefully soon.

    here's a lil something for u guys. as far as recieving picture msg's, you can always leave ur account flagged to recieve the text notification and then visit the pic site to view it. and when you send a pic msg you can actually open the pic, choose to "email" the pic and for the email i use the 10digitphonenumber@mms.att.net for at&t users. there's actually a list. just put your friends whole number minus the 1 in front and then @whatever.whatever to finish it off. they get sent directly to your friend as a real MMS picture message. doing it this way allows you to still recieve ur MMS indication text from tmobile and you can carry this on til whenever.

    here is the list:
    Verizon, @vzpix.com
    AT&T/Cingular, @mms.att.com
    T-Mobile, @tmomail.net
    Sprint/Nextel, @messaging.sprintpcs.com
    Virgin Mobile, @vmobl.net
    Amp’d Mobile, @vzwpix.com
    Alltel, @message.alltel.com
