    If you can't send or receive MMS content, try these troubleshooting steps:

    1. Verify that you have met all of the system requirements for MMS.

    2. Try sending only a text message with no video, photos, or voice memos, or have the sender do the same to your full number, including area code.
    • If you cannot send or receive just a text message, verify that the sender is using the correct phone number. This should be the receipient's full phone number, including area code.
    • If you can send or receive just a text message, contact your carrier to confirm your wireless account is provisioned for MMS.

    3. Check with your carrier; there may be an outage or known issue with sending or receiving MMS content.

    4. Some carriers allow you to edit your APN (Access Point Name), which may cause MMS not to work. See this article for additional information.

    5. If you are roaming outside your calling area, make sure you have Data Roaming turned on in Settings > General > Network to send or receive MMS content.

    6. Instead of MMS, try using Mail as a work-around:

    • If you have a Wi-Fi connection, consider using Mail on iPhone instead. Many carriers offer text and MMS gateway email addresses. Ask your carrier if this feature is available.
    • Some carriers may have strict limits on the size of MMS messages. Try sending a single photo or a short (five second) voice memo. Or send the content using Mail.

    Step to step procedures to send MMS from iPhone:
    • Find out the e-mail address of the cell phone number you want to send MMS to from the cell phone carrier and corresponding addresses below
    • Open your e-mail in Phone and write the e-mail to the e-mail address of the cell phone number
    • Attach the multimedia (song, picture or video) as an attachment in your e-mail.
    • Send the MMS from your iPhone e-mail account.
    • If your friend could not receive the MMS. There are three possible reasons: the MMS size is too big, the cell phone carrier does not support MMS, your friend cell phone does not support MMS.
    • To receive MMS from other cell phones, just have them to send the MMS to your e-mail address so that you can retrieve them on your iPhone. If your friend’s cell phone can not send message to e-mail accounts. You can send an e-mail to the cell phone using above procedures. Then have your friend to reply to your e-mail with MMS.
