Multimedia Message Service is a message sent to a cell phone with photos, text, animation, audio or video files. MMS has greatly increased cell phone communication because of its convenience. Since network carriers charge a fee for sending MMS, sending free MMS from the Internet is becoming popular. You can use your computer or Web-based cell phone for this purpose.
- Skill level:
Visit a website such as Text 4 Free, Sea SMS or Pix Drop. These websites allow you to send MMS from the Internet to any cell phone number. You can find links to such websites in the Resources section.
Click “Choose File.” Upload the multimedia file from your computer or Internet mobile to the particular website you are using. Test4Free.net allows you to send a file of up to 5 megabytes. The file formats allowed are JPG, PNG, JPEG and WBMP for photos; MID, MIDI and MP3 for audio; and MP4, WAV, WMA, 3GP and MP4 for video.
PixDrop currently supports photo formats up to 1 megabyte.<p>SeaSMS.com allows you to send files of any format but the file size shouldn’t exceed 500 kilobytes.
Enter the recipient’s phone number and select his country or carrier from the list. Some websites ask you to select the recipient’s destination from the map.
Add your name in the message field of the website. If you want, you also can also add a personal message.
Click “Send MMS” or “Send Picture Message.”
Tips and warnings
- Not all cell phones can receive MMS. Many older models are incapable of viewing multimedia messages so they will display an MMS message on the recipient's phone, but the recipient would not be able to view it. The recipient also will not be able to see the MMS unless he configures MMS settings on his cell phone. He will have to contact his network carrier for configuring the settings.
