I can not receive or send MMS on my phone, had settings sent to my phone etc and tried doing it manually.
Had worked once before then changed some settings when i took phone to Ozz then when i got back to NZ tried putting old settings back and still no luck.
Does anyone know what i could do or has a similar issue??

So I found, You have to make sure (packet)data is enabled.

If you only use it when you need it, and get a MMS inbetween.. you won't get the image etc.

In such a case you need something like APNdroid to rename your data APN so it doesn't work, while letting the MMS APN info remain active.

Failing that, Check there is 2 APNs in the network settings. One for WAP, other for MMS:

WAP Gateway Port (WAP2): 8080
WAP Gateway Port (WAP1): 9201
WAP gateway IP:

APN: mms

Test sending a MMS to your own mobile number from your number
