I would have thought some action from Optus would still be required to actually get the messages to Exetel... But I don't know how it works behind the scenes.

Sounds like a great idea. I would much rather pay Exetel and they keep the money rather than pass it on.

However, we have asked if this can be possible.
Was there a reply?
Are they able to at least make it receive only so we can get the stuff people send us?

Are the wheels still turning on this issue, or did they fall off and run down an embankment? :mrgreen:

Yes, what is happening. I am sick and tired of company's like Optarse bullshitting about services and deliberately blocking them, in this case a half arsed attempt too when a pop-up message on the phone asks you to connect and retrieve the message that allegedly does not even arrive at the Optus server.

Screw Optarse and set up an Exetel MMS service so we can send and receive MMS!

Yeah it's been a long time and still no word on MMS... almost considering changing to one of the low-end Vodafone-based plans so I can get full functionality again. Given I don't use much data it's almost feasible

Come Exetel, you provide an excellent service but Optarse are trying to limit this service by blocking MMS. Please sort this out, either get Optus to unblock this or set up your own MMS server.

Whats most annoying about this, Is someone sent me a MMS... I'm on a HSPA M1 - HA plan right now...

So, Every 2 hours, My phone pops up "New Multimedia Message Available! Disconnect Data sessions to recieve?" ..Of course, It just sits there, and never recieves anything..

Pain in the bum.. Sending MMS's? Heck, I'll pay a premium if i need it.. We already pay a premium for Voice/SMS on this plan, I dont care if Optus wants to charge $1.50 for every MMS sent honestly, as i'll email stuff.. But recieving, Thats where I want MMS :)

I totally agree, it is obvious that Optarse are deliberately blocking MMS to us and it just bullshit telling Exetel that it doesn't work. I think Exetel should push them to simply turn it on or set their own MMS server up and screw Optus!

A friend had a pair of MMSes turn up on the weekend - his phone went nuts, and it took both of us near an hour to find the damn dialog in WinMob to prevent it trying to download them.

Here's a question - if optus don't want us having MMS, can someone please ask them to disable MMS completely instead of leaving it half on? It's bloody annoying how it is now. I either want it on or off, not teasing me.

We have escalated the issue to Optus.

It turns out Optus did not inform us of a specific provisioning trigger for the MMS function. This should be rectified and available soon.
Apologies for the run-around.

Which way is it looking to go? Off completely, receive only, or full support?
