Re: Why can't I send or receive MMS messages?

Hi there I am having the same problem as above, with the message saying image scaling failed, please reduce size of image. However, when I reduce the size of the image it still comes up with the same message again.


Could you help me please?


I have pulled the battery out whilst the handset is on but had no luck with that
