Documentation says you can not use an MMS compatible phone as a GSM modem to RECEIVE MMS messages through the gateway and it is clear.

But is it posible to SEND MMS-messages using GPRS-phone like Nokia 3650 as modem?

I configured MMS Outbound Routing and tested Connection (OK) and then tried use web interface to Send MMS Message to myself, gateway says message submitted and my phone connects somewhere.

The problem is that message never arives to my phone. Should my setup work and how do I start troubleshooting?

Yes, unfortunately the MMS server address cannot be tested as part of the setup, you have to try sending a message to see if it is set correctly. Glad to hear that you were able to get this sorted.

For the sake of future searchers on the discussion board who find this thread, I'll offer the following additional suggestions of other settings to check for this type of problem.

The two most common problems are this...

In the "MMSC Routing" definition, where you define your MM1 connection over GPRS, check the following settings for best results:

1.) "Default Sender Address" should be blank. "Allow Sender Address Override" should NOT be checked.

2.) On the MMS Outbound Routing settings screen, there are two fields labeled "Login Name" and "Password".

Ensure that the "Login Name" and "Password" settings beneath the "Server Address" field should be blank. If a login name and password are required for connectivity, supply them in the fields beneath "GPRS APN".
