I'm using an HTC Desire, rooted and with a recent copy of Android 2.2 (most recent Modaco) and I am having trouble getting mms to work.

IF you have an Android 2.2 based device, are on XT, AND are able to send and receive mms, please could you supply here the exact APN settings you are using?

Yes, I am aware of the sticky thread about android settings for XT. Yes I have tried them (and many variants) and I can't get them to work.

There was an issue with some early Telstramod froyo releases that seemed to break mms for Telstra customers in aussie (on an A8183 Desire) but I don't have that SW anymore.

Cheers - N

Running Android 2.2 - Leedroid 1.8. 5.09 radio.

Just sent and received a MMS successfully.

Anything not mentioned is not set. I've included the case im using as some have said the APN type has been case sensitive.
Name: Telecom MMS
APN: wap.telecom.co.nz
MMSC http://lsmmsc.xtra.co.nz
MMS Proxy: 210.55.11.73
MMS port: 80
MMS Protocol WAP 2.0
MCC: 530
MNC: 05
APN type: mms

notable is im using port 80 on the proxy and the guides say to use 8080. Its not broken so im not fixing it.

Thanks for your reply... unfortunately it didn't work for me... I'm prepared to muck around a bit so could you please list precisely what SW and radio ROMs you are running? I have...

Radio : 32.42.00.32U_5.09.00.08
Build number is : 2.09.405.8 (but shows as Telstramod under SW number)

Android 2.2
Baseband 32.43.00.32U_5.09.00.20
Kernel 2.6.32.15-gf9c0527htc-kernel@and18-2 #1
Build Number 2.09.405.8 CL218634 release-keys
Software Number LeeDrOiD_V1.8

Notable is that the stock telstra rom always worked perfectly fine with MMS too for me.
I also have every other apn with apn type "default" if that makes any difference.

Thanks... I'll chuck on Leedroid tonight and see what that does...

I just noticed you're running
32.42.00.32U_5.09.00.08
and im running
32.43.00.32U_5.09.00.20
I got this radio from the LeeDroid thread, you could try it before doing a full ROM flash? Though im finding LeeDroid is quite a nice ROM.

Interestingly custom roms will give the A8183 an identity crisis, and its model will show as an A8181 in the info after flashing. Doesn't seem to make a difference though at all.

Thanks for the replies gents...

Turns out I had settings that should have worked the whole time, but something funny was stuck from a first load of the Telstramod... I did a complete wipe and reflash of leedroid 1.8b (left radio ROM as it was) and it worked first attempt (send and receive successful)

I ended up using the settings in the post here and see no reason to change. thanks again for the confirmation of settings.

I'm using the same APN settings as posted above on my Desire.. they're currently not working, but I have had MMS working with the same settings in the past. If I remember correctly, it's all case sensitive and it won't work unless everything is perfect. Unfortunately I can't remember what I changed to get it working last time :(

I have a Nexus One with 2.2 and I can send MMS but not download received ones (I can see that there's a message there, and who it's from, but it doesn't download). I'll certainly be watching this thread with interest!

As mentioned some Telstra roms had major MMS issues, personally i'd suggest a full wipe and flash, but not everyone wants to root their device. Though you do get more features as a result.

The settings i posted above are exactly what mine are, including the case. I have 'default' set as the APN type for every other apn.
