    hi guys, i have had this phone for awhile(samsung t58g) *i think thats what it is*
    anyways it is a straight talk phone and i have the unlimited plan.
    But when i tried sending a picture to my friend it kep saying it was sent but she said she had never recieved it.
    So i had her send me a picture and it worked fine.
    I would call the company but i dont feel like dealing with some guy from india at the moment.
    any input would be most appreciated :)

    Sounds like the mosfet controlling the picture send acknowledgement has gone open circuit.

    Seriously, this is not the sort of thing we can help you with.

    Answer: her phone cant receive mms: Its amazing how many still cant these days. My sister kept asking me why I hadnt got stuff she had sent - same reason.

    Oh and what Steve said: This isnt the place for stuff like that. Maybe I shouldnt have answered :p

    Yeah, totally true. MMS may not work to her phone. The only solution may be to buy her a nice new phone for her birthday, or Halloween, or Diwali, or whatever.

    And even if the phone is compatible the carrier might not allow it on his/her plan or support it on the backbone...

    This was a issue in the US with the original iPhone(s), almost every other smart phone and many dumb ones supported MMS, but the iPhone(s) did not, nor did AT&T's back end until iOS 3.1 was rolled out... It was part of that 'Apple Experience' :p
