Multimedia messages

Note: This function can be used only if it is supported by your network operator or
service provider. Only phones that offer compatible multimedia message features
can receive and display multimedia messages.

A multimedia message can contain text, sound and a picture or a video clip. The
phone supports multimedia messages that are up to 100 kB in size. If the
maximum size is exceeded, the phone may not be able to receive the message.
Depending on the network, you may receive a text message that includes an
Internet address where you can view the multimedia message.

If the message contains a picture, the phone scales it down to fit the display area.

The multimedia message function uses shared memory, see

rely solely upon them for essential communications.
