    RANT: People who die without MMS.

    Okay I had to post this rant cause it always bugs me. I know MMS is convenient and nice, but are people for real when they get supremely pissed off that it's not working?

    I can understand if you use it in some business capacity, but there are other ways to distribute pictures. E-mail is one and Gmail combined with the Gmail app will push e-mails to your phones. Notifications are pretty darn quick.

    Are that many people just huge social butterflies and can't handle it not working for a bit? I mean I'd notify Cricket about it, however it'd never be a deal breaker as long as my talk, text, and Internet work.

    End rant... for now.

    Welcome, and not it's not a dumb question.

    Here is a more formal definition:

    MMS

    Multimedia Messaging Service

    MMS is a descendant of SMS (Short Messaging Service). MMS extends text messaging to include longer text, graphics, photos, audio clips, video clips, or any combination of the above, within certain size limits.

    MMS is frequently used to send photos and videos from camera phones to other MMS phones or email accounts. Most camera phones have MMS, but many non-camera phones have it as well.

    Many newer MMS phones also support SMIL, which allows various parts of an MMS message to be arranged into a small multimedia "slideshow" to be viewed on another SMIL-capable MMS phone.
    It is also called picture mail but can send more than pictures.

    I'm with you... I use my google voice number for pretty much everything, and as far as I've heard, it does not support MMS, don't care, that's what email is for!
