Find out what text and multimedia messages are and how to send them.


How to use multimedia messaging

You can send a variety of messages from your mobile device. In addition to making and receiving call, you can send text and multimedia messages.
  • Text Messages - You can send and receive short text messages to other wireless numbers. You can also receive alerts on the latest news, weather, stock quotes, and sports information.
  • Multimedia Messaging (MMS) - You can send and receive messages that contain media, such as, pictures, videos, and voice memos.

Multimedia messages take longer to send than text messages because of the amount of data being sent. On average, a multimedia message takes about 25 to 30 seconds to send. It may take a few seconds longer for a video message.
