    Hi all

    Apparently, I have 36 picture mails included in my tariff per month. What do they mean by this? Is it MMS? or picture emails? (surely emails are data though with no way of being tracked)

    i have been on the phone a few times now trying to get to the bottom of this.
    First off MMS is separate, this is sending a picture via email.

    I kept explaining to 3 that when i sent a picture via email it was coming out of my data allowance and not the picture mail allowance.
    She kept claiming that it wasn't even when i proved it by sending one and getting her to check .
    She just kept repeating that these were included in picture mail.

    What i think is happening is that on other phones 3 have there own email system and this is not supported on Android at the moment so even though you have free picture emails you cannot use them.

    I tried again and again to explain this to the 3 support drone but to no avail so i just gave up :)

    To send a picture mail you have to open a MMS but instead of putting the phone number you put a email address.

    It will arrive like this http://i33.tinypic.com/sepndi.jpg (Thanks to BlackWolf from 3G froum)

    Not good and I bet no MMS are included in the tarrif. They are a bit shy with the details. I remember when companies would just take 2 o3 SMS messages off you for a MMS. Even better, on tesco, you get flexi credit to use on anything.

    Its ok if the other person has an email address. My mum doesn't and I used to send her quite a few photos of the kids, all MMS are inclusive on Tesco mobile. With all the social networking sites these days a pic message is a waste of time.

    *edit. I suppose because its free, it save data rather than uploading to facebook :)

    There is a guide on the three website as i did wonder the same. The way i understand it is that you can send a picture to a mobile number via email. So take photo, add to an email and enter a phone number in the address.
