Edited by Thor, Ash0hley, Eng, Anonymous
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video we are going to show you how to turn off or on group MMS messaging, on a HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone is been activated, we'll see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down and hold until we see the icon here on the screen.
While pressing down, swipe up.
This will unlock the phone.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we'll see the home screen.
At the bottom, we'll see these icons here.
It is here that we need to find the 'Messages' icon.
It is located here.
It looks like a white text box. In the middle there are three green horizontal lines.
Press down on this icon, and it will enter the 'Messages' area.
In this section we need to find the settings menu.To do that we press this icon here, in the top right hand corner of the screen.
There are three small white squares in a vertical line. Press down on this icon.
In this menu, we need the second option from the bottom, 'Settings', in white writing.
Press down on this word.
The settings menu will open.
We are looking for this option here, it should say, "Multimedia messages (MMS)." Press down on this option.
Now it's going to open up our settings for the MMS area.
Scroll down, until we get to the bottom.
Find the area labeled 'GROUP MESSAGES'.
In this video, we will learn how to turn group messaging on and off.
This means we will be able to send group messages and we will be able to send multimedia group messages. We can send photos or videos to a group all at the same time. The default setting for this is 'off'. The box is not checked. That means it is not active. This option is turned off because it may cost extra money.
If we want to send multimedia messages to a group, we will need to activate this setting in order to create a group, and then send the multimedia messages.
To do that press down on the box.
It will ask us a question:
"Group messaging allows we to send group messages via MMS. Using this service may result in additional charges from your wireless provider depending on your service plan. Do you want to turn group messaging on?" We do. Press the 'OK' icon, located here.
Now we can see that there is a check in the box.
If we are doing this for the first time, it's going to ask us for our phone number for group messages.
Do that now. Enter the phone number, then press 'OK'.
This option will be activated, and we can now send group messages and group multimedia messages as well.
To send a group message, go back into the Messages application, add people to the group, and send them a multimedia message.
If we want to turn this option off, we can just press the box until the check mark disappears.
Now the option has been turned off.
This then, concludes our tutorial on how to turn on or off the group MMS messaging on HTC One M8.
