Hi All,

Firstly, I'm new to Geekzone as a user, have been a reader of the forums for a little while now,

So Hi!

Initially I posted this in the Android section..

Both my wife and I recently upgraded our phones from the standard Nokia 2730 Clasics on Telstraclears 3G (aka vodafone) to hers being a LG-P500h Optimus One and mine being a Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000.

Both phones were purchased from Noel Leemings. Hers was a XT network phone and mine a Vodafone network phone

Initially, I called Telstraclear and they sent to us both the configuartion text messages to enable the web browsing & mms settings. For a little while there everything worked nicely.

So after a little while, I installed some apps on the LG phone and set it up for working within my Wireless network at home.

But now, the LG-P500h won't send or recieve MMS messages. A first I thought this might be to do with the apps installed, so uninstalled those, and still no joy. The galaxy S will send and recieve.

I've even performed a factory reset on it via the menu (setting > Privacy > factory reset) and still no joy.

I've entered the APN settings for telstraclear as per the message at the top of this forum and still no joy. Even tried different names for the MMS settings. I've tried MMS and TCL MMS. Neither seem to work. The check box for Data enabled is checked on.

As I post this the phone isn't in front of me, but I know from memory the phone is on Android 2.2.1 and firmware is at V10B 13 Dec 2010.

The phone will still send normal text messages, make and recieve calls, and browse the web via the browser (so that setting is working) but won't send or recieve MMS.

Any help\ideas\assistance will be greatly appreciated.

If the original text they sent you worked the first time then call them up and get them to resend this and accept the new settings.

As telstra is piggy backing off Vodafones network you'll need to enable Data Roaming

Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Mobile Network Settings -> Data roaming (tick)

A Message will appear saying "you may incur significant roaming charges!" or something this is cool as this should be built into your plan with Telstra.

Hope this helps

Don't think that's right. Telstra are an MVNO of Vodafone and for all intents and purposes their customers are on the Vodafone network, not on top of it. The Vodafone Home Location Registry should just pick up that the Telstra SIM is a Vodafone SIM and knows to route data traffic through the Telstra specific APN. Certainly on my iPhone I always have data roaming turned off and it works fine on Telstra. Don't know why Android phones would be any different.

Got the zeros, tried with the data roaming on and off and still not sending.

Could it be related to the Firmware? Under menu > notifications it says V10B_00 is available by plugging the phone into the PC and updating using PC Suite IV.

When i do this, it tells me the phone is up to date, but if you look at the phone settings it says V10B-Dec....

Is it relatively easy to put a custom firmware update on the phone?

If so, are you able to provide step by step instructions?

Right.

THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARANTY blah blah blah, and I'm not responsible if it becomes a brick!

Backup your SD card (pretty hard to get N-Drive back if you delete it, and it works quite well)

All the in-detail info is available here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=901247

First thing to do is root your phone.
As you're using 10B you will probably need "gingerbreak" (available in the market)
If you had 10A as I did, you could've used "z4root" (market)
Then you'll want to back up anything you want to keep.
My list of apps (market & all free):
-Titanium Backup (I use the full, paid version as it rocks)
-APN Backup & Restore
-SMS Backup & Restore
-Call Logs Backup & Restore


Backup all your stuff

I then got "ROM Manager" by ClockworkMod from the market and installed that. When you install this, run it and Flash ClockworkMod Recovery. first option, cant miss it. keep scrolling down until you see your model of phone (obviously LG P500)
Dont do anything esle with this program yet!

I use a version of CyanogenMod 7. I downloaded this ROM here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=946354
Version 6.5.4, it is the most stable!
(I'm currently using 6.5.5 but it has a few annoying things going on with ADW Ex and sometimes the GPS staying on in the icon area at the moment) YOU DO NOT WANT THE BETA 6.6

You DO NOT need to partition your SD card or run any apps2sd of any kind

Please read the whole first 3 posts in that above link.

Also, from that page, download "gapps" (very basic google apps, but gives you Market) from here http://www.mediafire.com/?j80xkzrgdd6pjxb


Right... fully charge your phone.

Copy the ROM and gapps to the root of your SD.

read these pages about ROM manager so you know what to expect http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/what-is-clockworkmod-recovery-and-how-to-use-it-on-android-compl.../
and
http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/how-to-install-a-rom-or-app-from-zip-file-to-android-device-from.../
open ROM manager, "Install ROM from SD Card"

Follow instructions in above links

BACKUP your current ROM! (nandroid) like the links said.


Install your rom... takes a little time  (make sure you wipe your caches)

it will reboot into CM7

Open rom manager... reboot into recovery (also an option when holding down power button now)
"Install from zip"
install gapps

install your apps from market (starting with the 4 up the top (or titanium backup and install your apps from there)

Restore your settings

enjoy!


Anyone got anything else to add?

Err.

Ok.

I'm not sure I'll be that confident in trying that.

Might see if I can get it back to 10a.

Lol, where in nz are you? Probably harder, and more likely to brick your phone, down-grading!
