My sincere apologies if this has been covered previously, but why oh WHY can I not send and receive PXT with my Harrier? Surely, for a device you pay $999 for, you should be able to PXT? Would it be as simple as downloading a "PXT App", if there is one, and getting Telecom to put on the MMS spot codes? I really am considering buying ANOTHER phone, just for PXT, which seems a tad ludicrous considering I have a device like the Harrier..

Please help?!!

I think it *could* be because when the harrier was released the telecom PXT servce was not 'live' so they disabled the functionality?

I could be wrong however.

Telecoms official line (i have complained about this exact thing in writing), is that the device is email capable, which covers sending and recieving of pictures.

Not good enough IMO, and I would love to see working MMS on my Harrier.

And PXT is a Voda trademark. Telecoms service is called 'Photo Messaging'.

Call it PXT too often and Theresa will have her boys around to thump you (or so im told).

so can you email photo messages to handsets to be viewed on the handsets?

i know you can email off a harrier to an email address but straight to a handset?

that necessitates photo messaging in my opinion or it isn't a feature of the phone.
