|German term or phrase: empfangen|
|This is the context:|
Mit dem MMS-Service wird es möglich, auch bewegte Bilder zu versenden oder Bild- und Tonmaterial auf das Handy zu laden, dort zu bearbeiten, um es dann direkt versenden oder empfangen zu können.
If you already downloaded the file to your mobile - what does "empfangen" (receive?) mean here?
|It seems to me like a mistake in the text.|
Klaus Herrmann is doing a noble native speaker´s job trying to make sense of it, but I´m not sure it works.
Or, re-reading your text, perhaps it is not exactly a mistake, but just very unclear thinking. The "empfangen" is the last item in the list of what you can do with the MMS service.
And of course it someone else who receives it, after you have loaded, processed and sent your moving pictures etc..

|I think the meaning should be transfer, i.e. you can transfer the message from you mobile to other units like your computor or whatever. |
