How to Send Email to a Cell Phone MMS Address By Jamie Wilson, eHow Contributor

Found This Helpful

Anyone with a multimedia cell phone and a cellular plan that supports it can send and receive photos and video. While Short Messaging Service, or SMS, gave cellular phone users the ability to send short text messages, Multimedia Messaging Service, known as MMS, extends that ability to include photos and video. Since MMS data is delivered to a special email address unique for each cell phone number, it's possible to send video and images to mobile phones by ordinary email.

Things You'll Need
  • Email account
  • Recipient's phone number
  • Recipient's mobile service provider

Instructions

  • 1. Identify the cell phone's mobile service provider. If you're not sure about the provider, use a service such as Fone Finder or Reverse Phone Directory to see which service the phone uses.

  • 2. Determine the MMS email format used by the recipient's mobile service provider. While it is possible to get this information from each individual mobile service provider's web site, a brief web search should turn up what you need. ModMyi.com has a good list of common U.S. and international mobile service providers and is a good place to start.

    Once you find the MMS email format, just add the recipient's full cell phone number to the front of the address. For instance, a Verizon customer's email address would look something like: <phone number>@vzwpix.com.

  • 3. Create your email message. Use your favorite email application, but remember to keep your subject and message body short. MMS is able to support messages up to 350 KB in size, but many mobile providers limit messages to 300 KB or smaller, so keep this in mind when adding photos or video to your messages.

  • 4. Send the message.

Tips & Warnings

  • Most mobile service providers have separate email addresses for text-only (SMS) and multimedia (MMS) messages. Be sure that you are using the correct one because photos or video sent to an SMS address probably won't make it to the recipient.
