    My guess would be T-mobile wifi calling was the first instance of the problem. So the fix got named for that.

    Right. With the GSM (TF/AT&T) SIM in the E4, neither the default Messages app or Textra will turn Data on/off automatically for sending/receiving MMS. With the TF/VZ SIM in the E4, both apps will turn Data on/off automatically for MMS.

    I don't suppose you could try again with the GSM SIM while toggling the different settings shown in the screenshot above that I mentioned ?.

    I'll try it now. Will give you the results in about 30 minutes.

    Does Textra work similar to Hangouts/Google voice?

    Results: didn't work.

    When MMS Behaviors is set to System, the T-Mobile Fix option is not shown. When MMS Behaviors is set to Legacy, then the T-Mobile Fix option is available. I tried all 3 combinations below, none worked:

    1. Behaviors = System. T-Mobile Fix = N/A.
    2. Behaviors = Legacy. T-Mobile Fix = On.
    3. Behaviors = Legacy. T-Mobile Fix = Off.

    Anything else you want me to test before I switch the SIMs back ?

    I really appreciate you taking the time to re-check.

    I think that will do it.

    I was hoping to get her back on Textra with zero intervention when it comes to MMS.

    I really don't feel like having to fire up the TF app on my phone 10x day to make sure her Data balance isn't disappearing when she's surfing the web when at home - when she should be on our WiFi .

    Sounds like a decent phone other wise.

    Thanks again.

    No, it a SMS/MMS app, using carrire messaging not wifi/data.

    It has more options and a different feel than others.

    Handcent is another popular alternative.

    The default Messages app on the Phoenix 2 automatically turns Data on/off for MMS. Any reason why you prefer to use Textra instead of the default app?

    True - the stock app does do that on the Phnx2.

    I got her set up with Textra on her previous (2) phones & she really came to like it.

    Much better customizations & much more user friendly.

    Textra probably works fine on that phone. It does on most phones. The Moto E4 with GSM SIM is the only one I've heard of it not working on.

    I just tested Textra on my Phoenix 2. Like tracmac said, it does NOT turn Data on/off automatically for MMS, while the default Messages app does.

    I guess I'm not that fussy when it comes to texting apps. The stock android app works fine for me on TF/VZW with one exception, I can't delete individual texts only whole conversations. Is there perhaps a setting I've overlooked?

    On the Moto E4, bring up the conversation. Long press on the individual text that you want to delete. Touch the trash can icon in the upper-right corner.

    Well that's weird.

    Textra has properly sent MMS when connected to wifi in all the devices in my household.

    All on Verizon/VZW MVNOs: Droid 3, Droid 4, GS3, LG G2, G3, Droid Mini, Moto G (1st gen), and Moto G5+. (One other 3G phone my son had but I forget the model, maybe X2?)

    It also worked fine with my G2 and GSM SIMs in Afghanistan and Kuwait.

    I wonder if it's something with the newer OSes or just budget phone problems. Only the Moto G5+ has newer than KK, but the G2s should have N before long.
