mms on o2
i did the 1010 mms text to o2 to allow mms sent to my 2g iphone via a link.
but now ive got the crack working to allow me to send like a 3g but due to sending that text i cant receive the picture normally, only via a link.
Has anyone worked out a way round this? ive read people phoning o2, which im yet to try but i wondered if there is a work around?
(i even tried texting stop to 1010, but no joy)
just to update this incase anyone else has the problem, ive spoken to o2 and they didnt know this would happen from what i could work out. But they went through all the settings manually and sending to me, nothing.
Tried it in another phone, nothing, still sending a link.
So ive now got a new sim card from the shop, and waiting for that to come on, hoping it will work.
I think the mms text might link something on the o2 system to your sim, so fingers crossed a new sim might fix it.
new sim makes no difference, o2 will feel the pain tomorrow
to get the link off, you need a person at o2 to disable mms for your account and get them to reactivate it, should clear it all and stop the link coming through. Just make sure the sim is in another phone other than your iphone.
ok, if you put your sim in another phone and call o2 and ask them to deactivate mms settings and ask them to switch them back on it should restore the picture messaging.
Make sure they dont send the mms gps settings for your phone as when you put your sim back into your iphone it will come up with the 1010 text and your be back to square one.
(the guy sent me the settings and turned mms off/on for me and i put the sim back into my phone, got my gf to send me a pic and i received it ok and i could send fine, but then i received a text from 1010 because the o2 man sent the settings while i had the sim in the w850i to setup that phone. which then messed it up again when i put the sim in the iphone, so ive phoned them again and ask them to turn my mms off/on and not to send me settings for the w850i)
hope this makes sense, ask any questions
have you done this? have you now been able to send mms from your iphone without getting any texts from o2?
Thanks for your help in solving this
yeah, the post above should answer you i think dude, i did just post it after you wrote that :)
having got the nice man at o2 to turn mms off and on without sending phone settings, i now have picture messaging working with the 2g hack.
there is a way around the 1010 text if you have done it!! woohooo
mms on o2
Di they not just send the 1010 text msg back to you after you sent your first mms?
nope, and it still working fine
