my friend has a 3205, its telecom, he got it about a year and a half ago now, he got it because on the internet he saw it had MMS ability. whats weird is that he doesn't.

but whats really weird, is that if when he turns on the phone, if he's quick enough and goes to the message menu, he can actually go into the MMS part! crazy huh! but he can't use anything in there

does anybody know if there is any way to unlock this feature? the phone has MMS ability and so does Telecom so why can't he use it? sounds a bit mean to me :(

Telecom *might* have disabled it during/before their MMS deployment.

The 3205 is an MMS phone, and should be working fine. Take it to a dealer if its not.
It should be fully capable of sending and receiving photos/text via MMS.

Are you sure its not a 3105?

Bear in mind too, that specifications for a phone overseas often have little bearing on what a phone can do by the time its been adjusted to work with a specific carrier, especially if you are comparing a GSM version to a CDMA version.

cellman: The MMS function has been disabled in the Handset.


yeah i know that, but can it be [i]abled[/i]?

it seems rude that they sell a phone with an ability to do something but stop it from doing that thing, even in the network allows it.

PM me the esn number, and I will check the model.

As I said in my earlier post, if it is in fact a New Zealand Nokia 3205, it should be able to do MMS, and Telecom should fix it up for you.
