After a loooong wait:
SMS From: My Telco - 8/16/04 11:57:38 PM

I actually sent it to myself, hoping to view a video of a Shakespeare Sonnet on my SmartPhone.

It never arrived. I test my phone, and sure enough, my MMS settings are intact and working. Let's try again:

    hey emmanslayer.

    naisip ko tuloy, baka naman .rm (real media) format yung MMS video na ipinadala. That .rm can be used in the video capable Nokia units.

    Yung sa akin is SmartPhone. We can play avi's and mpegs and .... ano pa ba ... oog ata ...

    What's your phone, emmanslayer?

    ka edong

    How did this story end?

    I contacted my friend at Smart. He tried the service on an HTC Voyager (the newer Smart Amazing Phone). It worked on the Voyager.

    But it didn't work on my HTC Tanager (the first Smart Amazing Phone) nor did it work on my friend's Tanager.
