The originator can easily create a Multimedia Message, either using a built-in or accessory camera, or can use images and sounds stored previously in the phone (and possibly downloaded from a web site).

Even if the recipient phone is not switched on, the Multimedia Message will be stored and sent to the recipient as soon as they switch on their phone. If the recipient has not subscribed to the MMS service, still he/she can view the MMS through internet based on the SMS notification he/she gets.

A number of Multimedia Messages can be stored in the users handset and reviewed or forwarded at a later date.
