Send and receive pictures from your phone

PXT is a picture message, also known as an MMS message. PXT lets you send and receive messages containing pictures, sound files, animations, and text from your phone. With PXT you have the freedom to be creative.

What does PXT cost?

Rates for sending PXT vary according to plan. Check your plan for more information.

How it works

  1. Your phone uses MMS technology to send and receive PXT to and from mobile numbers
  2. You can also send PXT to an email address
  3. A single PXT message can include multiple picture, sound and animation files, so you can share the whole experience with friends
  4. You can also include text with your PXT. Unlike TXT, there’s no restriction on the number of text characters you can use

Important information

  • PXT expire if they're not retrieved within a period of time. See our support article for more info
  • You may need to set up your phone before you can send a PXT. You can do this with our mobile phone configurator
  • Your phone needs to be MMS capable and a Vodafone approved mobile device to send and receive PXT
  • Some recipient’s phones may not be capable of receiving PXT. See our PXT troubleshooting guide for more information
  • A TXT notification to view the PXT on PXT World will be sent to overseas recipients if they’re not connected to Vodafone in New Zealand. Vodafone Australia would also need to have a TXT agreement with their network provider for the TXT notification
  • Different phones have different size limits for sending and receiving PXT. Check your phone’s user guide for more information
