3. Have you sent any picture messages (MMS)?

(Click "more info" below to reveal information about MMS)



More info

You need a few things to send or receive picture messages.


1) Internet on your phone. As pictures are downloaded via the internet you will need the internet add on for it to work.


2) The correct settings.  All the settings you need are here.


3) If you are sending pictures you will need some credit as they are not free.  Each picture message you send will cost €0.30. You can see a breakdown of additional costs here.


If after check all of this and are still having problems with sending or receiving pictures then it's time to "ask an agent".




4. Have you called any premium/low rate numbers?


Check the list at the bottom of this page to learn about the pricing for calling premium/low rate numbers

Check the pricing list for international calls on this page to find out more.

If you are sure you have not used your credit for any of the above then time to give the care crew a shout.
