Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) makes it possible for people to send free text messages, pictures and audio files to mobile phones. You can send a free MMS message from your PC to a mobile phone through an MMS gateway application.

Click "Run" or "Install" to install the MMS gateway application in your PC. Run in the default settings/configurations provided by the MMS gateway service provider.
Connect to the Web menu interface on the MMS gateway application. Enter a valid IP address and HTTP port number on your PC's web address bar.
Select "Send MMS" from the menu interface that displays on your screen.
Enter the mobile phone number you want to send an MMS message to on the "Phone Number" box provided on the Web menu interface.
