Multimedia messaging (sometimes referred to as picture messaging or picture mail) is a feature that allows customers with multimedia messaging-capable phones to send messages with text, pictures, photos, video and audio clips from their Cricket phone to another wireless phone or e-mail address. Customers can send picture or multimedia messages while in Cricket's data coverage areas.
Customers can send messages to other Cricket customers (including those in different Cricket service areas) by simply using the 10-digit mobile number of the recipient. In addition, customers can send messages to some other wireless users in the United States by simply using the 10-digit mobile number of the recipient.
If picture messaging is already included in your monthly rate plan you do not have to pay anything extra for the service.
If picture messaging is not already included in your plan you can choose to add it and the monthly fee will be added to your next Cricket bill.
Specific instructions on how to send a picture message are listed in your phone's user guide. In general:
1. Select the Multimedia Messaging option from your phone's menu.
2. Enter in the 10-digit mobile number of the recipient.
3. Add your picture, video, audio or text.
4. Press SEND.
No, not necessarily. You need to ensure that your phone is capable of downloading videos. Please refer to your phone's user manual for more information.
You can receive picture messages on your Cricket phone even if you do not have picture messaging as a feature. If your phone does not support picture messages, you will get a text message with a link to a website (http://www.mycricket.com/mms) where you can view your message. However, in order to send picture messages or reply to messages you receive you must have a phone capable of picture messaging and be a picture messaging subscriber.
