o2 MMS "Service not available"

HI all,

had this poblem for a while now, but since I'm not a big MMS user, it
wasn't too worrying.

Every time I try and send an MMS message, I get a "service not
available" message, after about 10 seconds.

I'm on Pay monthly, it's an SE w800i, and normal texts work fine. MMS
*has* worked in the past.

Anyone any advice please ? I have filled in the o2 online form, but
given previous experiences with them, would rather trust the group

thanks in advance

If it were me, I would ring O2 customer service, it doesnt cost anything, I
wouldnt rely on the form filling in at all! If it has worked before,you
must have the settings on your phone. 08706003009 this doesnt cost the
normal 35p per minute a normal 0870 would incur out of your minutes.

Had a reply from their CS people. Apparently, when I went to cancel my
contract in September, and was persuaded to stay on contract (rather
than go PAYG) by a rather good deal, they "forgot" to tell me that the
contact I was moving to didn't allow MMS.

I have blasted them with a broadside of Jethros patent bad-service
eliminating laser-ray, and await with interest their reply. I shall
update peeps as and when ......

It was speaking to a CS droid on the phone that got them into this
mess. As a rule, I try and avoid calling *any* customer service line
where possible, for a variety of reasons :

1) why should *I* wait

2) I am experiencing increasing problems where, not only do they not
understand me, but I cannot understand them

3) queries, comments and instructions send via web have a nice feature
of almost always being archived in my inbox. Thus making it difficult
for a company to claim they didn't receive my communication, or (more
usefully) when I have to "remind" a company what they promised or
agreed to.

It also give me a useful measure of a companies CS in general. If they
*do* have a web-form, and I fill it in, and never hear from them, then
I can pretty much assume their CS overall is crap. Many companies have
lost my custom by ignoring a web-based query. IMO Powergen are one of
the worst. Despite recieving many automated reciepts from their online
query system, I have yet to recieve and actual reply. Mind you, I no
longer have an account with them.
