What is PXT?

Send and receive pictures from your phone

PXT allows you to send and receive messages containing pictures, sound files, animations, and text to other mobiles or email addresses. You might also know it as a MMS or multimedia message. 

What does PXT cost?

Rates for sending PXT can vary between plans, check the rates for your plan for detailed info.

How it works

  1. If you have a picture, video or sound stored on your phone that you'd like to share, you can send it as a PXT (MMS) message
  2. You're not charged for data, but to send and receive PXT, you need to have an active mobile data connection (not Wi-Fi).
  3. Your PXT can be sent to another mobile number or email address
  4. A single PXT message can include multiple picture, sound and animation files, so you can share the whole experience with friends
  5. You can also include text with your PXT, with more characters than a standard TXT message
