• Send a multimedia message to your own phone number. This way, you can test if you’re
able to send and receive multimedia messages.
• If you can connect to the internet but you can’t send multimedia messages, try searching
online to find the multimedia (MMS) settings for your network service provider. To change
the MMS settings, swipe down from the top of the screen, and tap All settings >
Network & wireless > Cellular & SIM > SIM settings.
• If you are abroad, check that data roaming is turned on in your phone settings.
Tip: You must be connected to the internet to send and receive multimedia messages.

subscription (access to internet) on your SIM card.
