Multimedia Messaging Service

Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a standard way to send messages that include multimedia content (pictures, video) and group messages to and from a mobile phone over a cellular or IP Voice Network.

Users and providers may refer to such a message as a PXT, a picture message, or a multimedia message. The MMS standard extends the core SMS (Short Message Service) capability, allowing the exchange of text messages greater than 160 characters in length. Unlike text-only SMS, MMS can deliver a variety of media, including up to forty seconds of video, one image, a slide show of multiple images, or audio.
