I cannot send/receive MMS with GSM LTE line

Arina Vlasova Updated by Arina Vlasova

First Steps

  1. Please make sure that the line is configured with an active text and a data plan. You can check this on your account’s dashboard.
    MMS messages can only be sent via cellular data, and not through Wi-Fi or an external Internet connection. For iPhones, multimedia messages can be sent via iMessages to other iOS devices using Wi-Fi, but not to Android devices.
  2. Please note that for an MMS, the attachment should not exceed 1 MB in size.
  3. Ensure that you have the latest software update.
