(Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)
I finally got a call from Bhutan Telecom. Apparently, something's not working with their MMS-to-email gateway. According to the nice lady on the other end of the call, they have no idea when this is going to be fixed.
So here's the bottom line right now: You can send MMSs between phones, but you cannot send an MMS from your phone to an email recipient. That's a pity, given BT's marketing effort to promote MMS, and the fact that they - like any other GSM operator - are supposed to support MMS-to-email. Also, I was hoping to update this blog using MMS (Blogger supports MMS). I guess that will have to wait (Inhale. Exhale).
And now to the Nu 5 question. Once October kicks in and the free MMS promotion is over, will BT start charging the MMS-to-email fee (see here for the complete list of MMS charges), even though the message disappears into the void and is never delivered?
You can be sure I'm going to find out.
To be continued!
