For MMS operation, you need to make the settings on your mobile device in one of the following ways:

1. Automatically using the Settings Wizard

The settings are sent automatically when you first register in the A1 network, when you replace the device or SIM card, when the device software is updated.

The Settings Wizard sends the required setting configurations, which should be saved, and then the device should be turned off and on.

2. USSD request *135*0# call

3. Personal account (Settings menu item)

4. Send an SMS with the word “mms” to number 512

In the process of setting, please follow all the prompts in the device menu.

To activate the settings, you need to set/save them as the default MMS profile and reboot the device.

There is no charge for receiving settings by any of the above methods. SMS and USSD requests are free of charge. The exceptions are cases of sending SMS from roaming.

Settings are not automatically sent in roaming. If, while in roaming, the subscriber independently sends a request to receive settings via SMS, USSD, Personal Account, correct receipt of settings is not guaranteed.

5. Configure the device manually

If your device does not support automatic settings, you can configure it yourself using typical settings.
