Getting a new hi-tech phone can be exciting and frustrating at the same time specially if you find out that it's capable of doing so many things and all you can get to work are a handful. I used to have the Sony Ericsson P910i that had been unlocked for use with other networks but many of its features such as MMS and WAP have been locked to the original carrier's settings. Luckily, my new P1i phone is a fully unlocked factory version.

Here are the steps to setting the MMS:

  1. Call T-Mobile from a different phone and have them send you the bootstrap set up text message for T-Zones and MMS.
  2. Stay on the phone to test T-Zones.
  3. This is KEY: turn off the phone and have them take you off of the network temporarily and have them put you back on.
  4. Turn the phone back on, select Messaging > More > Settings > MMSAccount and choose T-Zones for the Internet account.
  5. Have tech-support send you a test MMS and you should be home free.

 

 Now all I have to do is figure out how to get the Video Call function to work... oh wait, T-Mobile USA has to catch up with 3rd world countries and put up their 3G networks up and running first.

i have MMS working on my P1i, but the pictures I receive are always very small even though the originals are sent in full size. Any idea how to fix this?? Thanks.

to answer the anonymous question, i just realized, i have the same problem. i'm not really sure if it is an error/misconfiguration or it' supposed to be the way it is. so, i don't have an answer to that. send me a comment if you find the answer.
