Latest Phones can render both image & text correctly. Where as old phone models doesn`t show text. Guide me with the below MM7 format.

Content-ID: <<smilContent.smil>-<message.txt>-<multimedia.gif>>

Content-Disposition: inline; filename="null"

<region id="Text" width="100%" height="20" left="0" top="250" />

Do you really need to put the image and text on separate pages? It's not what you're asking about, but with Android phones, unless you have a strong reason to display as a SMIL presentation, it is better to keep it simple.

Here are a few things I would suggest ...

Remove the root-layout element.

Change the regions to use % instead of pixels.

If you continue approach of image and text on separate pages, make both regions full size:

<region id="Image" height="100%" width="100%" fit="meet"/>
<region id="Text" height="100%" width="100%" fit="scroll"/>

If you decide to put both on same page:

<region id="Image" height="75%" width="100%" fit="meet"/>
<region id="Text" top="75%" height="25%" width="100%" fit="scroll"/>

I'd also suggest adding a dur on the 2nd page. I did find an old tech note in our archives from 2005 ... it referenced a bug in some SonyEricsson phones where pages of an MMS message would not be displayed if there was a par element without a dur attribute.
