T-Mobile is considered to be one of the biggest companies that provide telecommunication services to all people. It is a holding company based in Germany which has also lots of braches around the world, including the United States of America (USA) and Puerto Rico.
Aside from providing network calls and short message service (SMS) or simply text messaging, T-Mobile also offers multimedia messaging services, otherwise known as the MMS, to its avid subscribers. MMS differs from text messaging because it involves the transmission of messages having multimedia objects such as pictures and music files. However, T-mobile users should bear in mind that there is a limited file size and graphic file dimension that can be inserted in the MMS.
How MMS is Sent?
To send MMS, subscribers need to use mobile phones or smart phones that are capable of handling MMS (obviously). These mobile phones and smart phones must be able to accommodate and get connected to data service networks such as General Packet Radio Service (GPRS ) or Third Generation (3G) Mobile Telecommunications.
Apart from the GPRS and/or 3G-capable mobile phones, MMS settings must also be configured to the device used. In this article, let us concentrate on how to setup the MMS settings for iPhone users who are subscribed to T-Mobile network services.
T-Mobile MMS Settings for iPhone
Every mobile carrier has different MMS settings for different brands and units of mobile phones. In other words, T-mobile subscribers can have different MMS settings compared to AT&T users. Likewise, T-mobile users also have different MMS settings for their Samsung phones (running the Android operating system (OS)), iPhones (running the iOS), and Nokia phones (running Symbian OS and later Windows OS), even if these phones are all locked to the T-mobile network. Of course, these three major types of mobile phones are not manufactured by one company and these have major differences in interface and firmware.
If you did not buy your iPhone from T-mobile, you will have to manually configure the MMS settings for this smart phone. In doing so, let me list the important details.
