I have accidentally turned on multimedia when sending a text. I don't know how I did this and do not know how to turn it off. Thanks!

Not sure what you mean by "turned on multimedia" ... are you sending picture texts or texts with emoticons?  Those will be processed/sent automatically as multimedia texts.

Just text - no pictures or emoticons..it is a quick  message about multimedia being sent and there was also a quick note that the message was being sent to all? Have I turned on something that sends a message to all of my contacts? Thanks.

Did you send the text to multiple recipients?  That would also be a multimedia message.

Hey there ginger1029,

Phones these days are capable of doing so much and I absolutely want to make sure you know how to use yours to its full functionality.  Did you send a text to multiple people? Did you include a picture, sound file, video? These are all examples of multimedia messages.  Which make and model device do you have?

Please include additional details so that I can better assist.

tikibar1, pictures are worth a thousand words. This is what multimedia messaging means: http://vz.to/1ew3sMG

ginger1029, thanks for the description. You sent, what is considered a standard text message. You can verify the recipients in the "To:" field of your text message.

Yes, I know what they are; I was explaining it to the OP.
