Musings from Munkimatt

A flow of whatever tickles my fancy

Well I never knew MMS did this…and I don’t like it.

I’ve only tried this on a Nokia 5800, so if you’ve got a different phone or one that runs a different OS, feel free to try this for yourself and see if you get similar results.

Get someone to send you and another person a picture at the same time (so both of you are in the recipients box). When you get the picture go to options and look at message details. Scroll down the pop up that appears.

Both you and the other recipient will be listed.

Now this seems to me to be a pretty big flaw. Also I’ve never noticed this before which leads me to believe this is a fairly recent development.

Now I know that to most people this won’t be an issue because you’ll be decent, upstanding people. But just say, hypothetically, you had sent a rather private picture to two separate people who didn’t know about each other (I’m pretty sure you know where I’m going with that), would you want the two people to have visibility of each others full phone numbers?

Just be careful with who you’re sending what to, OK?

p.s. Just tried this with a HTC TyTn II and could find anyway to see both numbers. Is this problem isolated to just Nokia phones? Or just Nokia Series 60 5th Ed? I recommend you try it and post below.
