Re: Why are there so many people being charged for picture messages
Thanks for the post.
As andyju has mentioned the main culprit for this particular issue seems to be the handset converting the SMS message into an MMS message. This tends to happen when an Emoticon is used rather than a standard smiley text.
We have noticed a trend in particular with older Samsung handsets.
I have included a link here to another thread where this was discussed.
