    Cannot receive MMS on any of my MetroPCS flashed phones.

    Im unable to get any MMS messages on my MetroPCS flashed phones, the Droid X and Motorola Droid 1. I have written the NV items correctly, and put in the APN's right. Is it just me or anyone else getting this.

    Unhappy i dotn think is just you

    me too my droid x used to work perfectly with mms.. well with perfectly i mean it would take like 10 min to send an mms but it would work).. even after i updated to gingerbread stock rom i rooted put in the apn settings and all was well till about 2 days ago when i started getting failures and errors sending mms... and receiving as well.... i have played around endlessly changing the apn settings to no avail... everyonce in a great while the mms seems to send and receive but if i retry it nothing. just invalid destination address heres what used to work

    metropcs

    proxy.metropcs.net i think this was wap.metropcs.net but someone mentioned it worked better with proxy... i dont know nothing works

    3128
    phonenumber@mymetropcs.com
    password=msl number
    server proxy.metropcs.net
    http://mms.metropcs.net/mmsc:3128
    3128
    310
    004 or 012 don think it matters
    mms

    i use apn manager and always been able to restore apns and dont have issues changings roms... ive also been using the same generated nv items from whiterabbit since way back when i first flashed...

    i have also updated my prl to 3020 for metro found it on a forum somewhere but this was after my mms stoped working...

    its driving me crazy.... if someone has any clue as what could be going on. apperantly im not the only one having this issue i looked everywhere but it seems this guy and my self are the first to post..

    im in southern cali....

    send me some info and a life vest..

    Yeah, I can't get MMS working either on an Optimus V. Tried both the flashable ZIP posted over on XDA and just changing the APN using APN Backup & Restore. Neither methods worked. Why does MMS on Metro have to be such a female dog?

    I figure no one's gonna reply with a fix, since those who know are making money from their "solution", so it's off to try different ROMs and see if that makes any difference.

    I figure I may as well follow up my original post for anyone in the same situation. The stock Virgin Mobile ROM is totally useless for MetroPCS, if you ever hope to get MMS working.

    I ended up building my own ROM from scratch, based on the Sprint ROM. Everything (including voicemail notifications, incoming and outgoing MMS) now works.

    Try flashing MetrOFF. It fixed my MMS on my Droid X immediatly.

    If youre talking about metroff .zips make sure u get the one for froyo or gingerbread depending on what youre on.... do not use any other messeging app for mms other than the new mms.apk that getz installed on youre phone after the flash zip if u can remove any other text apps including the stock mms app. I think by default its coersations.apk not sure i forgot.. that should work. Also make sure youre one x data symbol is up u need to have data working... issues with metroff include no settings in app... no way to split large messeges largee than 160 xharacters.. also make sure that youre flash is installed and its successful and youre not getting an error.. im running stock gingerbread on droid x with everything working.... let me know if u need more help

    I appreciate the help, I already figured it out. I built my own ROM based on Sprint Optimus V stock and got everthing working.

    Try this,it worked for me...
    Metropcs APN Settings to get MMS to work on flashed MOTOROLA Droid.
    Tested on motorola droid running cyanogenmod-707252011 NIGHTLY-Droid GRj22
    (NOTE I TRIED DIFFERENT ROMS THIS IS THE ONLY ONE WORKED FINE)
    Here goes:
    Once phone reboots go to the market using WI-FI and download
    and install Autostart. >>>root required<<<
    Open the Voice Dialer on the phone and say "Open APNs" and click open.
    Or use Anycut to make a shortcut to the APNs.
    Tap on the Verizon and edit everything to match below:
    Name : metropcs
    APN: internet
    Proxy <Not Set> <-- just leave blank
    Port <Not Set> <-- just leave blank
    Username: your10digitsphonenumber@mymetropcs.com
    Password: metropcs
    Server: wap.metropcs.net
    MMSC: http://mms.mymetropcs.net:3128/mmsc
    MMS Proxy <Not Set> <-- just leave blank
    MMS Port:3128
    MCC 310
    MNC 004
    Authentication Type: PAP or CHAP
    APN type: default,mms,dun
    -AFTER THIS HIT SETTINGS,AND SAVE YOUR NEW APN.
    ALSO TDO THIS U2NL/AUTOSTART:http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...lk-tex-working
