Please help me. I have everything set up as per a previous post below.

I have a sim2 card and have been told by vodafone nz that it has data enabled.

I can send a text mms (pxt) with no pictures successfully and can receive a picture mms . When I send a picture MMS it comes up with the message that "server is not responding"

I can sucessfully connect to vodafone live as well.

Is there any other setting I need to look at as this is driving me mad.



Below are the MMS Setting that work for me...

Menu > Messages > 2 Multimedia Messages > 7 Settings > 3 MMS Profiles > 2 Profile Settings > the top level profile reads as follows on mine

Profile Name: Vodafone
Server URL: (make sure this is exact and that there is no www and 2 //)
Proxy: Enable

Click on GPRS Settings

IP Address (the zeros will disappear and it will then read
Port: 8080
Login:leave blank
PAssword: leave blank

Worth remembering is that Vodafone NZ has a 100k limit on MMS and the phone can take much bigger photo images.

Hope this helps. Let me know...

The only thing I can think off is the 100K limit or wrong format for the picture. Try changing settings (if possible) to save pictures in a smaller size and perhaps other format?

I have the same problem...!!!!

My moble samsung d500 has been set up with MMS and WAP

And I have been enjoying sending and recieving MMS!!!

BUT !! I have been getting ' server not responding' message everytime I try to send a MMS.

it's not the size of the photos as I have sent large size photos before and they worked fine before...

I have no idea what is wrong.. is it the mobile?? or something to do with a server??

It might be the mobile cos all my other friends' works fine.

It seems like a Samsung mobile problem with vodafone??

What can I do?? Who do I need to talk to?? Vodafone?? or mobile repairs??

PLEASE HELP!! before I lose my sanity!!

THX heaps

Does the same issue happen with your SIM in a different handset?

No.. it doesn't .. I think it's got something to do with the NZ vodafone??

Samsung D500 in Australia Vodafone doesn;t have the problem.

I've just sent a mms which only includes a small photo 7kb. If I try to send something bigger, the same problem comes out. So I think it would be a vodafone nz problem?

Maybe its something to do with the 027 - 021 that they meant to be implementing ??>

or might be the new 3g service having a conflict with gprs.. i've asked vodafone help and all they can say is that i should test my sim card out on another phone.. but i doubt thats the problem since its only the samsung d500 users that cant send mms
