After the Paarlampi update (Certainly the easiest to pronounce of them all) Jolla has resolved a rather complex issue which was sending and receiving MMS.
There were a lot of criticisms regarding that because, well, nearly every mobile phone out there has the ability to send and receive MMS but what we don’t know is in the background where all the magic happens and these photos or, say, media gets sent or received.
Personally I have no idea how it works, but what I thought was that it simply gets uploaded to a server and then downloaded from the other end. But from what I have heard, it is certainly more complicated than that. Don’t blame me if I’m wrong though 😉
But anyhow, it was released and it worked well on Finnish and Swedish networks, but some people in other places like France had a little bit if issue and couldn’t connect the phones to MMS access points.
Well worry not! Jolla has a hotfix [22.214.171.124 – Paarlampi] for you and by the time you are reading this, it is most probably installed on your phone since it was published earlier today.
So basically the update is as same as before, except that everyone can now use the MMS feature, even in non-European countries such as Pakistan:
