If the file is too larger to send via MMS, or if the file is not supported by the target network, then this website is using a mobile optimized file sharing method. You can send almost any file to a mobile user in Sri Lanka using this website. (Currently supported only with Dialog and Mobitel)

Recipient must have activated MMS on their mobile to receive the file successfully.

How to Activate MMS on Dialog Mobile

There are number of ways to activate MMS (multimedia messaging service) on your Dialog mobile. When you insert your SIM card to a new mobile phone Dialog automatically detects your mobile phone modal and sends you configuration settings. If not when you are about to receive a new MMS, first Dialog automatically activates MMS on your mobile package and then Dialog sends configuration settings automatically before you receive the MMS.
If any of the above procedures are not successfully completed then you can manually request MMS settings from Dialog. There are two ways of doing this.
  1. Type MMS and send to 700.
  2. Call #107# and access Dialog services menu. Select Messaging & Settings, select Settings, select All Settings or MMS Settings.
Most popular and branded mobile phone modals are capable of configuring MMS settings via any of the above steps. If you are still unable to setup MMS on your mobile using any of the above described method then you have to setup it manually.

Free Dialog, Mobitel, Etisalat MMS

It is very common knowledge that sending MMS has many advantages than sending SMS. But before coming to any conclusion, let’s have a fair look to the MMS technology. A MMS can deliver up to 300 KB of data to a mobile phone without any worry. You may send photos, ringtones, themes, even text files etc. Also, if you need to send text messages which are longer than 160 characters MMS is your low cost alternative. On the other hand, MMS is supported by almost every pioneering mobile network in Sri Lanka.

How to Send Free MMS
Above organization ( has been providing Free MMS to Sri Lankan networks since 2009. This service is more technology oriented and reliable. MMS are delivered instantly and delivery is 100% guaranteed if the recipient has activated MMS service on their mobile. The service has no delays because they are providing 5 alternative servers to handle the high traffic. Also you are allowed to attach files up to 10MB. The service makes necessary arrangements to deliver them.  They automatically convert those large files into small files and attch them into your message (MMS). Once you registered with the FREE MMS service, your name and phone number will be automatically remembered and will be attached as a signature in every MMS you send.

According to their website, this tool encodes your multimedia content in a fashion similar to sending a MIME e-mail (MIME content formats are defined in the MMS Message Encapsulation specification) and then forwards to the carrier's MMS store and forward server, known as the MMSC.
Give a try for FREE MMS and give your feedback…

Dialog GPRS Proxy Port Number

Unlike other local networks Dialog is using two different proxy ports to provide the GPRS service. In our Dialog GPRS settings page we have provided 8080 as the correct proxy port number. But this setting might not work properly on almost all mobile types, specially in certain Nokia mobile phone modals. Popular phone brands such as Sony Ericsson or Samsung are always recommended to be configured with 8080 port number. If you are still in trouble accessing internet with port 8080 then use proxy port number 9201. If your mobile phone is Nokia it is recommended using 9201 instead of using 8080.
For a detailed description on setting up manually your mobile phone for Dialog GPRS, MMS or MyTV please refer this article: Dialog GPRS, MMS, MyTV Settings
