+mmsd is a lower level daemon that transmits and recieves MMSes. It
works with
+both the ofono stack and the Modem Manager stack.
+Please note that mmsd alone will not get MMS working! It is designed
to work 
+with a higher level chat application to facilitate fetching and 
+sending MMS. It interfaces with other applications via the dbus.

+mmsd will be installed in /${prefix}/libexec (if you are following
this guide,
+it is /usr/libexec )
+To uninstall, simply remove the "mmsd" binary from /${prefix}/libexec
or run:

rejects it.
+        NOTE: This value is carrier specific! Changing this value to a
+              number may cause your carrier to silently reject MMSes
you send.
