Can't view my MMS, no ViewMyMessage.com either (original iPhone)
I have an original iPhone. I understand that this model does not support viewing of MMS. When I attempt to do so, I can see the message sitting in my "Inbox" but clicking the "Play Clip" button opens a new page and starts to load, then pops up the error "Download Failed. Safari cannot download this file."
Sorry, ViewMyMessage.com is no longer able to be accessed directly.
In order to improve your experience, there are now three ways you can access your messages:
Click on the link provided in the notification message to view your message on your phone
Type in the entire link - provided in the notification message on your phone - in the address bar on your browser
Forward the notification message to your email and:
Click on the link directly from your email to view your message, or
Copy and paste the link on to the address bar on your browser to view your message
It offers three ways to access my MMS.
1) is defunct due to stated old model.
2) does not work on the phone itself due to the same issue as 1), and does not work when I type in the address character-by-character on my computer's browser - instead it simply tells me the link is invalid and to go back to the original message to try again.
3) cannot happen because when I attempt to forward a text message to my e-mail, it only offers letters and numbers (ie, it wants someone's phone number or the name associated with someone's phone number). I even tried to copy & paste my e-mail address into the field; before attempting to send, it removed the . and @ sign, then of course reported the red exclamation alert a few seconds later to tell me it failed to send. Assuming I could even get this to work, what are the chances I'll get anything other than the same result as in 2)?
Why does AT&T have no option for those in my situation (old phone they still provide paid service for) to view MMS? Why did they remove online access to received MMS outside of doing so on the phone itself? Yes, I did discuss the problem with their online text/chat tech support, and she tried very hard to help me but could not.
