With Picture & Video Messaging, you can send a picture or video to an email address, to your TELUS online photo album, or to another mobile handset within Canada, the U.S. and the Philippines. People without a picture/video phone (Multimedia Messaging Service, or MMS-capable) will get a text message with a Web address and a PIN to enable them to view your message.
In order to receive Multimedia Messages (MMS) directly on your phone, here is what you will need:
An MMS-capable handset.
A compatible SIM card.
Text Messaging capability.
1X digital coverage. Check our coverage maps at Coverage & travelling.
If you don't have an MMS-capable Mike phone, you can still access Picture & Video messages online by logging in to your TELUS online photo album. You just need Text Messaging capability in order to receive a notification when someone has sent you a multimedia message.
From your computer, you can do any of the following:
View pictures and videos that have been sent to you.
Compose and send picture messages to other TELUS Mobility clients.
Customize picture messaging preferences.
Share, edit, and print pictures
If you change your phone number, all messages stored in your TELUS online photo album will be lost.
Some email servers, such as Hotmail and Yahoo, are very slow to receive picture messages. This doesn't necessarily indicate a problem with the MMS service.
You can use Picture & Video Messaging while roaming in the United States. See U.S. Roaming.
