    Hi all,

    Currently running Elelinux 2.2 v2 (latest revision from yesterday)

    I don't have a data allowance on my current plan and it costs me the equivalent of

    This is just a wild guess but....

    If you go to your APN settings and edit the APN for your network, scroll all the way down to the bottom. What does it say under APN Type?

    Elelinux came with a few APNs by default for me. There's a 'T-Mobile UK' APN, which has it's type listed as 'default,supl,mms'. And then there's 'Picture Message' APN, which is still a T-Mobile APN, but is listed as 'mms' only. I would get rid of all APNs except for the one you send picture messages with and then make sure the type is only set as mms.

    You should install 3G watchdog to track your usage and see if this makes a difference.

    Why didn't i think of that. The only APN there now is Netcom MMS. I deleted Netcom Internet so i would say that would have fixed it up. I've been using TrafficStats Lite, but ill get 3G watchdog and keep an eye on my data usage!

    I appreciate the quick response!

    **Update**

    It worked: I could send an MMS, but i could not browse the web or view the Market, no internet connection available!

    You know what Xyro, you might just be a genius.....
