Sony Ericsson T68iTwo months ago, T-Mobile announced the ability to send color pictures and music between cell phones using Multimedia Messaging Service MMS. The technology promises to be the next version of Short Message Service (SMS) but is only available on a minority of phones including the ever popular Sony Ericsson T68i Phone (T-Mobile).

The new MMS service is reportedly available in limited pockets of the US but we’ve yet to confirm where. Philadelphia, PA is currently offline.

This is how you set up your phone to see if your provider supports MMS:

(Note the settings below are based on a Sony Ericsson T68i Phone (T-Mobile) in Philadelphia, PA. YMMV)

If you have a T68(i or m), make the following configuration changes:

Menu: Messages: MMS: Options: Message Server: http://216.155.174.84/servlets/mms

Then exit that menu and go to:

Menu: Messages: MMS: Options: WAP profile

Then select the WAP profile that you have already setup. If you have not setup a WAP profile see the previous PowerPage article on the topic “GPRS, WAP Over Voicestream’s iStream Service Using Bluetooth.”

Then try to send an MMS to someone else with an MMS-capable phone and report your findings in the feedback.
