as the basis of framework to better explain customer's acceptance of this new mobile service. MMS provides more multimedia communication with entertainment effects than

this new message service and provide a deeper understanding of the phenomenon. The main objective is to present a theoretical framework regarding MMS usage and to empirically investigate which user related factors to consider, when developing services adapted for mobile message use. Survey was chosen to gather the data. The measures and hypotheses were analyzed using SPSS. Results show that Ease of use, perceived enjoyment and perceived media richness significantly influence passenger's intention
towards adopting MMS in Algeria. At last, the implications of the findings are discussed.
