Forget about boring SMS! From now you can send over the phone your emotions and feelings! Multimedia Messaging System (MMS) will help you with that.
MMS is a new level of your freedom! The MMS-technology provides you with an opportunity to send to your friends and colleagues:
- pictures, photos, screensavers;
- popular melodies, music, ring tones;
- video reels;
- large size text messages;
To start using MMS, please, follow the next steps:
Make sure that your phone supports MMS receipt and transfer
You may find this information in your phone’s manual.
To have a possibility to send MMS
Please, call a free of charge number 477 and order the MMS service. By sending your first MMS in the Kyivstar network you activate the MMS service reception. Please, remember that until you haven’t activated the service by sending the first MMS from your phone, the MMS will reach you as a simple text message with a link to MMS album, where you will be able to pick it up.
Make all necessary settings in your phone
To set up your phone, please, enter «Phone Settings» section, choose your phone model and enter the settings described there.
Create the MMS
All you have to do is to find the Menu section which is usually called “Messages” than select “MMS” and finally click “Create new”. This is as easy as sending SMS messages. Make a photo of yourself, your friends, shoot a film about animals. If your telephone does not have a camera you may add color or black & white picture, favorite melody or ring tone, compile MMS from these fragments and send it to your colleagues or friends!
Try to make your creative works not heavier than 1 Mb. There can be not more than 20 attachments
Send the MMS
You can send MMS to Kyivstar customers and also to customers of other Ukrainian operators. To send a message, please dial the number in international format: +380 67(97) XXX-XX-XX. If the recipient’s phone supports MMS he will see it on the display of his phone in several minutes after you pressed the “Send” button. If the recipient’s phone does not support MMS standard or he has not activated this service or if the recipient is customer of other Ukrainian operator (except for MTS Ukraine, Jeans), he will receive a notification as a simple SMS in which will be indicated the password and the internet address by which he will be able to see your message. Also you may send the MMS directly to your friend’s e-mail. To do this you have to insert an e-mail address instead of a phone number while sending the MMS. Please remember that you may send one MMS message maximum to 10 friends at once.
