What is this?
peffis is a free, multiuser MMS weblog. People can send MMS
with their mobile
phones containing photos and texts and it will be presented on the
web page. Each user is also given their own page with only their
postings on. It's all about sharing your daily life with others -
at least the part of your life that you want to share and feel you
can squeeze into your mobile phone.
What is MMS?
MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service. In short it is the
successor of SMS (Short Message Service) with the enhancements that
you can not only send text but basically any content type your
phone can handle such as images, text, videos, ring signals and
Can I join?
Yes, you are welcome to! Just sign up
by filling out a small form.
Does it cost money?
No. I do this as a hobby project. I do not aim to make any money
from this. I only do it for fun. As long as I can afford to host
and run the site I don't want any money for it. Too much in life
is controlled by money. There are other sources of happiness out
Do I have to have a phone with a camera to join?
Since this is an MMS blogging site it is much more fun if you
can participate and contribute with content but there is nothing
that stops you from joining anyway just to participate in the
discussions. Everyone is welcome.
What phones are supported?
Well, all phones with MMS should work. So far though, it
has only been tested with SonyEricsson phones (T68i, T310, T610,
P800), Nokia phones (7650, 7250) and Sagem MyX-5m. If your phone
is not listed and it works for you please
drop me a note and
tell me about it.
It doesn't work for me. Can my operator have blocked me?
Yes, some operators do not allow access to external MMSC:s.
There might be workarounds for it though -
drop me a note
If everything fails you can always fall back to email so
that you send the message to an email address using your operator's
Who created and run this site?
I, Stefan Hellkvist, created it and I pay for the hosting of it.
For info on how
to contact me, please see the contact info
on my home page.
How do I set up my phone?
When you sign up you will be sent instructions on how to do that.
Can I still send regular MMS:es with your settings?
It depends on which method of upload you choose. If you
prefer to use email upload you will still be using your operator's
settings and everything will work as before. If you instead prefer to
use peffis.com as MMSC you will not be able to send regular MMS:es any
longer. All messages will go to the site. The advantage of the "peffis.com as
alternative is that it will not cost you any money apart from the
traffic cost. The disadvantage of the that one is of course that you
cannot send regular MMS:es any longer. The email-alternative is the
opposite of course.
Why don't you use MMS sent to an email address instead of this
I do that now. You can choose to either edit your MMSC
setting and use the supplied URL or to keep your operator's setting
and send the message to an email address instead.
What about copyrighted material and abuse?
The first day someone abuses this to upload either copyrighted
material or other content which is not good to display publicly
I will of course ban that user forever but also add moderation so
that each post will be examined before going live. Let's see how
long the time of complete freedom will last. Show some dignity
Where can I find support or discuss the software?
I try to help as much as I can but I don't have unlimited time
resources so please try and help eachother. You can go to the forum
at hellkvist.org and post a question there. Then I will answer it when I have time or perhaps someone else can help you. You can also discuss MMS Blogging in general there if you like.
What about the weird names 'Peffis' and 'peffis'.
What is that and who is the guy in the hat?
It's a personal thing. Go away! Don't ask! :-)
