I did a little test by sending a message to myself @message.alltel.com. I sent a message of 350 characters. I received the first 200 characters split into two messages of 100 characters each. The rest was lost.
ARE YOU ABLE TO SEND PICTURES USING YOUR METHOD? I HAVE AN IPHONE WITH AT&T AND MY BUDDY HAS ALLTEL. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO SEND HIM A PHOTO USING YOUR METHOD. HE GETS THE TEXT BUT NO PHOTO. LET ME KNOW. THANKS.
Alltel doesn't use real mms, or even ems for whatever reason. I don't know, maybe these are 3G features?? What I do know is your only choice is for your friend to have Axcess Web (WAP) or better on his handset, and for you to upload the image file to the web, or host it however. I know there are lots of sites to help with this. I know photo.walgreens.com lets you send mms to email@example.com, but google around for something better. Then you can sms the url's to him and his browser should load it. As for Alltel lacking mms, heh, I'm typing this on my macbook pro tethered to my phone. True ip networking over sweet sweet EV-DO. A lot of jitter but blazing speed, just slightly faster than satellite. So go alltel and go cdma in general!
the correct address for alltel is firstname.lastname@example.org
ps...i am on alltel & this past wk-end they merged w/verizon...i still have to use the above address for my phone so far to send pics etc via email to my cellph...i guess in the future it will change...but as for now continue using mms.alltel.net
