HI ! I just signed up for your special(dbl minutes/etc.) It says unlimited messaging-text + pictures?? Does that mean I can send someone a picture or they can send one to me?? I can't seem to get pictures when a friend sends them to me?? What am I doing wrong??

Yes, with unlimited messaging pictures sent and received are included. To send and receive pictures data would have to be enabled on your phone under the phone's settings. So, make sure it's not blocked. What phone do you have?

Hi Cindi,
In addition to having your data turned on you need to make sure your apn (access point names is set to Koodo.

Tap New APN on the bottom of the screen and enter the following information:
Port: 80
Username: leave blank
Password: leave blank
Server: leave blank
MMS Proxy server:
MMS Port: 80
MCC: 302
MNC: 220
Authentication type: None
APN type: leave blank
Tap menu
Tap Save

*don't forget to add "mmsc" after the koodo/ on the MMSC line

Again matt please don't repeat answers that have already been given especially answers that have been given days before. If your doing it to get points it's useless because you will have those points taken away and can even be banned from the forum. If you want to help out that's cool and very much welcomed so just please answer questions that either haven't been answered or only if you have something helpful to add to the conversation that hasn't already been said.
