As cell phones continue to evolve into multimedia devices, so too have their many means of communication. Text messaging was once only a means of sending short word messages to other cell phones, but now you can also send audio files, video files and picture files. While some phones support these messages in their regular texting capabilities, others do not. For cell phones that do not, you can view or access your multimedia message onlines with a URL, login ID and password for your message.
Open the multimedia message in your inbox and copy down the URL, login ID and password for the website where your message can be viewed.
Navigate on your cell phone or computer's Internet browser to the URL from step 1. You may be able to click on the URL directly from your text message.
Enter the login ID and the password on the message page and click "OK." Your picture or video message will then be displayed on the next page.
