MMS is an important emerging service, which allows the sending of multiple media in a single

camera, or can use images and sounds stored previously in the phone (and possibly
downloaded from a web site).

the MMS service, still he/she can view the MMS through internet based on the SMS
notification he/she gets.

forwarded at a later date.
