[Solved] Sending SMS as MMS - Add a Subject Line

I am looking for a way to send MMS only. I want all text messages to be sent using MMS protocol regardless whether there's a picture involved. Is there an app or convenient technique to do this. BTW, I know that group text converts to MMS. The problem is creating groups of one recipient. Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

Just curiosity. Nothing illegal.

My understanding is the SMS apps will only trigger MMS if content is attached to it or it gets sent as a group message (as you've mentioned). Is there a way to add a subject to an SMS? That may force it to go as an MMS. That being said, I don't think it'll be possible if nothing is attached to it.

That's been my experience. Hancent will use MMS if a text messages is very long. I wonder if a certain type style that is not text would do it. Maybe use a keyboard workaround.

Whatsapp ?
I am interested in MMS specifically, not alternate messaging platforms.

Incidentally, I think I've read somewhere that Android Messaging app from Goggles
sends (or can be forced to send) all messages as MMS.

But doing so, you do cut off all ur VoIP correspondents (who cannot receive MMS), do not u?

I got the answer. I was told that adding a subject line converts to MMS. On Google messaging app, long press send brings up the option to add a subject. Case closed.

@titaniumtux , you have misread my intentions. I am a good little RFD angel. This thread was absolutely intended to figure out how to force use MMS instead of SMS. Not trying to troll anyone here. I did not get the answer here but someone else outside of RFD gave me the answer and so this thread is no longer required. Thanks for doing clean up for me to mark the thread as solved.

I know, I was just making an amusing comment. I enjoyed the thread, Ty.

I though worldirc's feedback sort of gave a little clue about the subject.

I'm still curious as to why someone would want to force send as an MMS.

As many followers here love to jump on a reported "pricing error", this takes advantage of and allows getting around a limitation in typical RFD fashion.
