    what is a new media message text on my phone.
    There is No Name or Number. I won't accept it. Not that it makes much difference NOW.
    I just smashed my phone.

    Did you smash your phone because of this? That's a message that came through as an MMS and could be any of 3 things - a picture, a video, a group text.

    Since I can't find a way to reply to the person that answered the original query, I'll have to do this the hard way.
    Have you ever had to answer a question in SETS of Threes? That means, the same ***** asks you for the answer three, six, nine, twelve, and etc. times. Never just once or twice. Always in threes. Your answer NEVER changes, but you have to repeat it. Then the same ***** gets mad because it's (Somehow) your fault, THEY had to ask so many times.
    Then they decide to Read it (Realizing) YOU'VE already read it to them in the aforementioned Sets of Threes and Verbatim. Now they're madder, because they had to read it.
    It's easier to smash the LG305c than listen to the Horse-Ends. One less thing that makes noise
    It doesn't matter if the question is about a Phone or a Media Message. It could be an eMail Reply, Junk Snail Mail, some moron knocking on the wrong door, the weather or anything.
    Talking to the ***** via ANY Phone. All you get is "What, Huh?" in the same Sets of Threes. No phone, No more "What, Huh?" Problem solved. They're madder still and ask "How Do I call You?". My reply, "Good question... DON'T". Ahhhh, blessed quiet.
    If I don't know who's Calling, Texting, or screwing around with some Bull-Ends Media Message, I won't Answer, Read, or Open.

    MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) messages are texts that include a photo (or any other attached file). It can also be a simple text message that has exceeded the 160 character limit for a single message (these get converted to MMS automatically, but there's usually an option to break the text up and send it as two separate SMS messages instead).

    MMS requires mobile data to be on (i.e., 3G/4G data). If your mobile data is off, and if someone sends you a text with a photo, you'll get a text saying something like "Multimedia message, tap to download." You'd need to turn on mobile data first before you try to download it.

    Sorry, but I'm not sure how the issue of questions in sets of threes relates to getting MMS messages ...

    Being in the real world means that you'll constantly run into people who have nothing better to do that waste your time. Learn to ignore it and get rid of them (online or offline) as quickly as possible. It's not worth smashing a $25 used phone over. (And it keeps your blood pressure down.)
