How to send MMS?
- Simply open the item (photo, video clip, music file etc) that you want to send via MMS. Select ‘Options’ and then ‘Send’ or ‘Send Via MMS’. Most handsets will indicate that the item may be too big and needs to be re-sized. Select ‘YES’ if this happens. You can also add a subject line as well as text.

- To send MMS to an email address, simply write the email address instead of a mobile number in the 'To' field of the MMS.

- You don't need a camera on your handset to send an MMS. If you received or downloaded an image from another source you can forward the image by following the steps above.

- Phones that are not MMS-enabled will receive an SMS notification whenever an MMS is sent to them. Such MMS will be accessible online at http://mymms.vodacom.co.tz. Customers may simply log in using their mobile number and the message key provided in the SMS.
When MMS is sent from Vodacom to other national mobiles (Tigo, Celtel and Zantel), these customers also receive an sms asking them to view the MMS at
www.mymms.vodacom.co.tz. There is a message key indicated within this sms. The customer must simply login as an 'Unregistered user' and use this message key to view the MMS sent to him.

- MMS sent to ANY email in the world is delivered as an email.

- MMS sent to either mobile number or email address charged at Tsh 75 plus VAT.

- MMS sent to International numbers will not be sent or delivered since presently Vodacom MMS works only to national mobile operators.
