    I've been having this issue for months but I kept my mouth shut hoping the 8107 update would fix it, but apparently I still cannot send any pictures in text message from my phone - at all. They all fail repetedly whether I accompany them with text or not. I've tried Factory Reset, Swapping SIMs, this is even a second device since it's started happening, and I've run HTC Connection Setup. Other phones on same carrier on my line have no issues doing this, just my phone is inop when it comes to this.

    Anyone else have this issue on T-Mobile US?

    It's my understanding that WP's get the APN for MMS from the SIM card on boot. I'd take it to T-Mobile and show them it's not working.

    It gets it on first boot or after a factory reset, and I've already tried that to no avail. I'll try the cellular setting thing or whatever.

    I'm only on T-Mobile for 3 more months so I don't wanna have to do another exchange. I'm out of Warranty right now so they might charge me a deductible. I just called them earlier to ETF my other line, but unfortunately I sold that phone a couple months ago.

    "Can't send message. Try again."

    Doesn't work.

    Eh 3 months, I think you'll survive. I've had no MMS for that long because Microsoft doesn't allow you to change MMS settings, and HTC is taking forever to add Straight Talk to the list of carriers on it's connection setup app.

    I definitely couldn't live without MMS. >_> But I guess since a lot of people have smart phones these days, you could just email them the picture.

    Yeah my understanding is that if it's outside of it's native carrier, it won't work. I heard a rumor of Nokia phones being able to change it's MMS settings

    Yeah, either through the diagnostic menu or through some sort of network setup app I believe?

    As long as your phone is carrier unlocked, you just have to run the "Network Setup" application from the manufacturer. All WP7 have an app in the manufacturer store on the marketplace.

    I have an unlocked Optimus 7 and all I have to do when I switch the SIM card to a diferent carrier is run the LG app and MMS work.

    Some people still have feature phones becuase they don't want to pay for expensive data plans. Email isn't good. I still communicate with quite a few people with feature phones who have no plans to upgrade to a smartphone.

    Kik needs yet another account, that's a showstopper. The WP7 WhatsApp app is terrible.

    Neither Kik nor WhatsApp work on feature phones.

    If those people had smartphones I wouldn't be having this issue since they otherwise all use WLM...

    My phone isn't unlocked, it's a T-Mobile phone with a T-Mobile SIM. The MMS was working, and then it stopped and even with a factory reset it still doesn't work. It just fails over and over again. I basically lost all MMS functionality, and it works on other phones cause I tried swapping my SIM out to another phone and it was able to send and recieve them.

    Also tried Connection Setup which supports T-Mobile, and it does literally nothing to remedy the issue.

    3 months is a long time to have to wait 5+ hours for someone to get home and see a picture I was able to send to them instantly np, cause they have a feature phone and don't lug around a tablet/laptop everywhere with them.

    I don't use Kik or Whatsapp either, I was just throwing out examples for someone else.

    Sorry the HTC app doesn't work, I always wonder why Microsoft let us set the APN, but not the MMS settings.

    could've left the bolded statement out,has nothing to do with the rest of the post or the topic.

    Neither does your post/reply.

    Even if it was an option I could never use such a bad app. That's how it's related to the topic. The Kik app is better, but having to sign up for another account is a showstopper for me.

    To OP, try putting someone else's TMo sim card in your phone and observe. Or, login to your TMo website and see what phone TMo recognizes for your account. If that's not your phone you need to set it up manually. TMo might not be recognizing your phone. You may also double check the IMEI numbers with TMo.

    Tried the SIM card trick since I had an active second SIM card lying around after I sold the other phone (it's ETF'd as of a few days ago, though) and that didn't work. The website shows the right phone, but I will probably call them about the issue very soon. Maybe tomorrow if I find some free time during the day.

    Did you active the sim that came with your phone or did you just pop in your old sim card?

    Unfortunately, that app is gone! I was able to download it for my unlocked Lumia 800 a couple of weeks ago, but as others have mentioned, it's no longer in the marketplace.

    I think you only need to run the "Network Settings" application from the manufacturer. All WP7 application of a manufacturing shop in the market.
