Yes! MojoTxt now supports the sending of MMS/Picture messages across all mobile carriers in the United States and Canada.
How do I send an MMS?
MMS messages can be sent from any Subscription List. Just choose the MMS/Picture Message option when sending a new message from your list. You'll then see an option to attach an image. In addition to the ability to send images, MMS messages can also contain way more text – up-to 1,600 characters in a single message!
What kinds of images can I send?
You can select any JPEG/GIF/PNG file (including animated GIFs), and we will handle resizing and converting the image to a compatible format.
Can I send videos or other file attachments?
Not at this time, but you can still include a link to another item just as you can with an SMS.
Does it cost extra to send MMS messages?
Each MMS message you send uses 2 message credits. That means that if you send an MMS to a subscription list with 100 subscribers, 200 message credits will be used. The reason for this extra cost is that our mobile carrier charges us more than double the standard rate to send an MMS message.
Can I receive MMS messages from my subscribers?
Yes. If you have Conversations enabled, your subscribers' MMS messages will be visible from the Conversations window.
Does it cost extra if I receive an MMS message from a subscriber?
No. Inbound MMS messages use only 1 message credit.
Why don't I have the option to send an MMS message?
There are two possible reasons for this...
- You are using a Toll-Free phone number. Unfortunately, toll-free numbers do not presently support MMS messages. This is a restriction imposed by mobile carriers.
- You are using High Capacity Mode. Unfortunately, MMS messages cannot presently be sent when High Capacity Mode is enabled.
We are told that carriers may soon allow MMS messages to be sent over toll-free numbers. In the meantime, you can use our Instant Webpage feature to attach images to your messages as a link.
