MMS
What is the MMS ?
One of the last developments in mobile phone messaging is multimedia messaging (MMS). Like the traditional SMS (Short Message Service), the MMS technology enables the transmission of automatic and immediate personal messages. However, the MMS also allows the mobile users to enrich their messages with images, sounds and animation to make them true audio video personalized messages. With an MMS mobile you can write almost unlimited texts (3000 characters) to which you can add visuals (photos, images, animation) and sound (spoken words, music, noise) characterized by high quality audio and a longer message duration.
How does the MMS work?
The MMS enables you to send animated and colorful images to which you can add sound, from:
  • A mobile to a mobile
  • A mobile to an e-mail address
  • The WEB to a mobile
  • The WAP to a mobile
To send and receive animated images you should have an MMS enabled mobile that is configured for MMS messages.
The person who is receiving the message should also have a configured MMS enabled mobile. The majority of new mobiles on the market are MMS enabled. They also have an integrated camera that can be used to send pictures via MMS. The MMS technology enables you to download on your mobile web animations that you can save and share with people that you know.
The Alfa MMS offer
Each MMS sent, from a mobile to another, will be charged:
  • 0,15$/MMS or 226.125LBP/MMS regardless of its size
