How to send MMS on an iPhone

Filed under Apple, Gadgets and Accessories, Tips and Tutorials

Create iPhone ContactMy friend recently upgraded to an iPhone and asked how she could send photos to her friends. Inspired by my friend, I wrote a tutorial on how to send MMS on an iPhone.

If you are accustomed to taking camera photos and then sending them via multimedia message (mms) to people, you’ll be sad to know that the iPhone lacks this mms feature. Luckily, there’s a workaround for this. What you want to do is email the photo to your friend’s phone. This would require you to know who their carrier is though. Here is a list of some popular US cellphone carriers and their mms email:

US Carrier MMS Email
AT&T mms.att.com
Sprint / Nextel messaging.sprintpcs.com
T-Mobile tmomail.net
Verizon vzwpix.com
Virgin vmobl.net

So in this example, let’s pretend our friend John Smith lives in the US, his cellphone number is 1 (234) 567-8910, and his cellphone carrier is T-Mobile. To get his phone’s email address, we would need to append his 10-digit phone number to carrier’s email address format. So John’s mms email would be 2345678910@tmomail.net.

Here are the steps on how to send John Smith a picture message:

  1. Edit one of your contacts. (Pictured above)
  2. Copy and paste their number into the email field. Remove any special characters.
    1. Click on the phone number.
    2. If you have the iPhone 3.0 OS, press down on the number, and menu will pop up. Select “Select All” and then “Copy,” then “Cancel” on the top left.
    3. Click on “Add New Email”
    4. Press in the email field until a bubble appears, let go, and click on “Paste.”
    5. Now edit the number and remove all special characters, and append the correct carrier email.
    6. If you are running iPhone 2.2.1 or lower, skip the copy/paste steps and add in the number manually, appending the carrier email.
  3. Save the contact by clicking on “Done”
  4. Now go to the Photo app and find the photo you want to send.
  5. At the bottom, click on the leftmost button and select “Email Photo.”
  6. This will add your photo into the Mail app to send.
  7. Tap on the “To” field and a plus will show up.
  8. Click on the +
  9. Find your contact.
    1. If the user only has the one email account, it’ll select it by default.
    2. If the user more than one email account, select one by tapping on it.
  10. Once you’re back in your mail app, hit “Send.”

I did a demo of the Nokia N95 8GB and Qik today at a web meeting. The librarians and web developers loved it. I showed them how to chat and with their site visitors over the phone. :)

Web Browsing on Nokia N95

Besides being able to use Qik, my second favorite feature is being able to rotate the screen when I’m surfing the web. The up and down keys on the right adjusts to the screen rotation of course.

You can also slide it to the right, and you’ll have the multimedia keys on the left side if you want to listen to music or watch videos!

Qik Questions

Filed under Daily Ramblings

I’ve been very interested in video and real-time streaming media lately. And I forgot to mention that I asked Cali a few questions about Qik a while ago. She was so nice and responded so quickly.

I asked:

Is there any way to comment on the Qik website without having a camera/phone with Qik capabilities? I tried to sign up, but it wants to send the application to my phone. Also, how do Qik & Qik Devices work? Do you have to buy a data plan that’s separate from your iphone?

and this was her response.

Thanks Cali for clearing up my Qik questions for me!

Turn Your Phone into a Scanner with UpCode!

April 2, 2008 by  
Filed under Gadgets and Accessories

Upcode for VideoI just saw this new technology on the news called “UpCode.” Basically, it’s a UPC code or barcode that’s read by a phone. You take a photo of the code. The the camera scans it. Then, this brings the content to the phone. The content can be anything from music videos, games, business cards, and more. To the right is a Upcode to download a music video.

UpCodeâ„¢ includes an optical reader that uses mobile phones/devices to add any electronic information or system to printed products and to electronic information on screens. With the application it is possible to integrate all businesses and all forms of eCommerce, with print and screen media. The code (2D data matrix, QR-code, 1D barcode or color code) or other type of tag (picture, OCR) gives mobile phone users multiple access and interaction, for an example but not only to internet content simply by pointing their phone at a code. Complete integration of localization, personalization, objects and other data.

T-Mobile Shadow Smartphone

Filed under Gadgets and Accessories

T-Mobile Shadow SmartphoneA little over a month ago, I bought a new cellphone. Going into the store, I was pretty convinced that I wanted the Blackberry Pearl.

After running back and forth, comparing a few of the phones, I was torn between the Blackberry Pearl 1800 and the Shadow. What won me over was the 2 megapixel camera, the neatness of the phone, and the bigger screen of the Shadow.

The Shadow is a slider smartphone with Windows CE and it comes in two colors — black or sage. The sage one is a bit of an odd color, so definitely go with the black. I love the windows interface, photo gallery, email options, and how I’m able to sync Outlook and my Google calendar. The media player and internet isn’t bad either. :D So if you’re looking for a Smartphone, here’s another choice that won’t cost you an arm and a leg! Unfortunately, it’s only available on T-mobile.

BlackBerry 8100

Filed under Gadgets and Accessories

I’ve been looking at cellphones lately since my contract is expiring soon. The only one I really liked was the BlackBerry 8100. The BlackBerry 8320 Curve is awesome too, but is a bit expensive. What do you think? I would really want an iPhone, but I can’t seem to justify the cost.

Something I can make calls on, and text would be great. And I’d like to stay away from flip phones. hehe I just don’t like them.
