If your cell phone and service provider support the feature, you can send and receive Multimedia Message Service messages. MMS messages can include both text and multimedia content, including images, audio files and video. If you want to send an MMS message, but you don't have a compatible phone or service plan, you can send MMS messages from your computer using free messaging websites. Some websites may also allow you to view the replies you receive.
