    I bought the Verizon 8X to use on another carrier. Phone calls and the Internet work great, but SMS and MMS do not work. I'm having trouble putting in the APN MMS info in settings, it's not saving. Can anybody help me?

    I just googled the settings for T-mobile. They came right up. Now, MMS is working great on t-mobile.

    In Windows Phone 8 tools for adding or editing Cellular Settings for internet and mms are built in. No need to download apps for it.

    I have the same issues on my Verizon 8X, the HTC connection app doesn't detect either the verizon nor the t-mobile sim card.

    I think there is a international mode on the Verizon 8X, that switches it from CDMA to GSM.

    I have the same problem. I bought an unlocked Verizon HTC 8X and I'm trying to use it in Brazil with the Vivo Carrier, but my phone won't save the mms apn settings. WTF is this???

    If you can not save the APN data, then it is not unlocked.

    I have the same issue. I have an 8X on Verizon with a TMO sim. It won't let me save my Internet MMS APN settings when I enter them. I can recieve texts just fine. And, I am able to send texts when I enter the phone number from scratch rather than choose a contact to text from my contacts list. If I keep the window open after I enter the phone number I can send and recieve just fine. It's once I switch to another window that it goes back to not receiving texts. MMS doesn't work at all no matter what. I've tried all sorts of steps to mess with my contacts to see if I can remedy the situation thinking maybe the phone is confused with my imported contacts (mix of hotmail,gmail and facebook contacts). But I can't seem to get it to text from my contacts list.

    I'm trying to use my Verizon 8X on AT&T US. Same thing, won't save my MMS settings. Maybe they're not correct. Can someone please list the settings for AT&T US MMS. Thanks.

    But phonecalls and internet works. Doesn't that mean that the phone is unlocked?

    I had the same issue. Unlocked HTC/8x on VIVO. I have turned off the " international assist" option on Settings->Applications->Phone-> International Assist (off). SMS working great now.

    I don't know if this helped also. But I entered all data on the mms apn configuration and saved it. I had to include wap parameters also so the little diskette that shows that the parameters can be saved lit up. Once I "saved it" the info disappeared..don't know if this was stored somewhere tough

    Hope it helps

    I just bought the limited edition Verizon employee edition HTC 8X (unlocked I guess) and using a TMobile SIM and have many problems with sending and receiving texts and picture messages. It is also seemingly random as to who can and cannot receive texts from me. I have corrected the internet apn but I have been on support with TMobile and HTC and both are confused why I do not have the option to add or edit MMS APN on my phone. We have verified the OS version and the Firmware revision number. I tried turning off the international assist as mentioned and still can't send picture messages. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I think it is a firmware issue... on my branded Swisscom Lumia 920, I can also not edit the MMS and Internet settings.

    Yeah, it is a firmware issue. I had this confirmed today from HTC. Too bad, I really like this phone. I will just have to wait for the next version on the TMobile network and hope the colors are better.

    I had the same problems! some of your problems can be solved by turning your international mode off under setting except the mms.
    I had software update on my phone and after that my mms setting option disappear!!!
    now my phone is perfectly fine except mms but you can send pic or other files by whatsup or other programs.
    good luck....

    i tried turning of international assist.did anyone bother to think that the htc windows 8 phone may not be unlocked cause its universal meaning its cdma and gsm.So when you put it on a gsm network you just put a sim card in.oppose to a cdma phone that needs to be flashed.also being that the phone is branded to verizon mms want work with another carrier.

    i had the same issue with my current unlocked verizon htc 8x phone that i'm using on tmobile but i found this to be helpful and now the issue is fixed. Go to your settings for calling and uncheck the option to auto correct international area code.

    it fixed the issue and text are sending properly. Hope this fixes your issue as it has mine...

    To check to see if it worked, text yourself and if you receive it then it worked. but also send multiple messages in the same thread just to make sure that it is working consistently.
