I've set up the picture messaging on my side on your account just allow about an hour or two for it to activate then retry for me.

Hi

Can you power off your phone for 20 minutes, then test your mms about 13:00.

Re: Can't send or receive picture messages

Hello,

 

have the same problem for the past couple of months with my Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. I've spoken to at least five people in O2 shops (including two Gurus) as well as someone on Twitter and on the O2 Forum. They've all said the problem was fixed but a few hours later it's back the same as it was. If I try and send a picture message it says Queued for Sending and if I try to download a message that has been sent to me it says Download Unsuccessful. What can I do? I've recently spoken to a manager in Mary Street and he wanted to send the phone away for a week and give me a crappy Nokia in its place - he also asked me to back up all the info on my phone! I'm not happy with this as this is not my problem - O2 have dropped the ball here and it seems I am the only one being inconvenienced! Your help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Oliver

Re: Can't send or receive picture messages

Hi Oliver,

Sorry to hear of the issues you're having with the mms.

Have you received the phone back yet from repair? Is the issue fixed?


Have they given you a sim card replacement at any time during the trips to the stores?

Re: Can't send or receive picture messages

Hi Michelle,

 

I didn't give it to them for repair yet - very reluctant to do so as I need it (and in particular the ability to send and receive picture messages for work) and I really want the issue resolved without having to send away the phone. Yes, they gave me a SIM card replacement in the O2 shop on Grafton Street nearly two months ago. That seemed to work initially but then it all went wrong again.

 

Thanks,

 

Oliver

Re: Can't send or receive picture messages

If it goes wrong again after the sim replacement then it could be an issue in the phone causing it to stop working. Once the account is set up here from our end there is nothing else we can do here I'm afraid.

The phone will have to be sent away for repair again.

I understand you are not happy with the phone offered for replacement to use while it's being repaired but this is all the store can give

Re: Can't send or receive picture messages

That's very disappointing! As soon as my 18-month contract is up with O2 I'll be off... Hard to believe the customer is the one who loses out in all of this?!?

 

Thanks for your help!

Is this the same phone you were using on Vodafone?
