That is not a resolution and they are not to me. They are being sent to my boss. I need a resolution to be able to send text messages to an Android Phone from my in office computer, when he is unable to make it to the office or if he has jobs that he is trying to quote. I have to send pictures of materials for the customer to select from.
If you're trying to use e-mail mms the correct address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're just trying to send an mms message using your messaging app you'll simply use the phone number.
While the above is true it is not a solution to the original problem. The above is a solution to operator error. The original problem (before somebody decided to add Android) is that Cricket can not reliably MMS from the messaging app on iOS. This is a carrier problem, not an operator error. It used to be rare but now it is rare for an MMS to go through.
So after all of these messages, still no resolution!!!!!!!! Only resolution is to find a different carrier where I can send messages that will actually go through!!!
@vickyd5 There are 2 solutions that have already been provided. You can e-mail the pictures (just about every smartphone/tablet/etc. has an e-mail account on it) or you can use e-mail mms. To use e-mail mms you open your e-mail, start a new e-mail, and use the format email@example.com to message the photos to the number from your e-mail account. The first option will arrive as an e-mail and the second will arrive as a message. Using e-mail mms requires that the message is under 1 mb in size. Most e-mail services allow you to shrink the file size.
IM ALSO HAVING THIS ISSUE ON AN IPHONE I ALSO KNOW THERE IS A 1MB LIMIT FROM CRICKET BUT WHEN I TRY TO SEND USING AS AN EMAIL IT ALSO WILL NOT SEND AND BOUNCES BACK ANIMATED GIF WILL NOT SEND BUT NORMAL TEXT AND SMILEYS GO THROUGH SUCCESSFULLY
Problem still persists. Can sometimes MMS. Mostly not. Nasty workaround is to disable WiFi, reboot phone, send again. Thought I was conserving resources by enabling WiFi but its getting to be too much trouble.
Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
