The Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a messaging service that allows messages containing pictures, audio clips, text and videoclips to be sent from one mobile phone to another mobile phone, or even from one mobile phone to an email address
An SMS is a plain text message. MMS lets you combine pictures, video/audio clips and text into a single message. For example, you can send a photo instead of trying to describe what something looks like. Or if you want to show someone that you are thinking of them but you don’t know what to say, you can send a picture message like the ones here.
SingTel Mobile Postpaid and Prepaid customers can send MMS from their MMS-enabled mobile phones. SingTel Mobile Postpaid customers can also send MMS from a PC or laptop by logging on to IDEAS.
Your friend will receive an SMS notification informing him/her of the MMS and how to retrieve it.
