Wink how to retrieve picture messages from t-mobile

hi there if you're having trouble retrieving a picture message that has been sent to your phone, and the message says to view it at www.t-mobile.co.uk/pmcollect, it might be because your phone has not been set up to recieve pictures. so here's how to set it up.
first go to the web-site, go to help and advice, click on phone support, then click on number 1, which is activating phone messaging, below you will have to enter your mobile number. next press continue, and a picture of your phone will come up on the screen, press confirm, click on picture messaging, then press configure phone now.
A message will be sent to your phone, and a list of instructions of how to save it will come up on your computer screen.
I really hope this works for you all, it did for me and now i'm recieving pics of my friends kids who live away.

Re: how to retrieve picture messages from t-mobile

When I was with T-Mobile a couple of years ago, I had to first send a picture message before I could receive any.

Some phones have a retrieve settings function in the menu, often they just send a request to the provider and the settings are sent out via SMS.

DITTO!

I've been searching the internet and came across this forum with EXACTLY the same problem I have. My tocco lite can send picture messages and access the internet. I've been on the phone with T-mobile for AGES this morning, totally not impressed!

I need to find out how to retrieve them, its driving me insane. T-mobile customer support have been so confused they said they would phone me back...but haven't!!!!! Argh. PLease please please help. This decoding failed thing is annoying.
