    Generic Virgin settings:
    <apn type="mms" apn="0" mnc="490" mcc="311" carrier="Virgin Mobile US" mmsport="81" mmsproxy="205.239.233.136" mmsc="http://mmsc.vmobl.com:8088/mms?" port=""/>

    Evo V APN
    <apn name="SPG" numeric="31000" mcc="310" mnc="00" apn="1" user="null" server="null" password="null" proxy="null" port="null" mmsproxy="null" mmsport="null" mmsprotocol="null" mmsc="http://mmsc.vmobl.com:8088/mms?" type="mms" />

    Does the Evo V APN work on AOSP builds? I would think not, but...

    Either of those will work.

    They are basic server settings.

    Wait what? Specifically on AOSP builds. We haven't gotten MMS working and we can't figure out why

    That's because it takes more than just APNS settings to make Virgin MMS work on most roms.

    Fixing Virgin MMS for ported roms
    Keep in mind that our phone isn't quite the same as other Virgin phones since we piggyback Sprint for some services (Voicemail and data), Virgin for others, and Clear for 4g.

    Here is another for fixing it on Sense 4.
    http://androidforums.com/evo-v-4g-all-things-root/623925-fix-mms-sense-4-4-1-a.html

    If you haven't figured it out yet, Virgin's MMS is a hassle.

    Not yet. Haven't gotten much time to due to school.

    That's only for GSM devices.

    Lol I am aware of the 4/4.1 fix, I'm the one who fixed it :p And whoah. That link has a bunch of info in it. I wonder how Sense handles MMS though. That could potentially be the answer to fixing MMS on AOSP based builds for this phone. And yeah, VM's MMS can go die in a hole.

    Btw, what did you mean by "ported" ROMs? As in from other phones than the Optimus S/T/M/other variants of this phone? Or those phones?

    Taking the look and feel from one phone/rom and putting it on another.

    This explains it well.

    Oh! I remember reading that guide. I used to have an Optimus S and used to screw around with it a lot, also went on the OV forums and tried some Optimus V ROMs since they were compatible with each other.

    One thing I noticed- you said the CdmaSMSDispatcher.smali from a base (in your thread on the OV) was incompatible with Sense ROMs. Is it compatible the other way around though? (Sense CdmaSMSDispatcher ---> CM9 CdmaSMSDispatcher)

    Because its never receiving an MMS. Its only for changing the gibberish 9999999999 number into something useable

    By receiving you mean actually getting a link to the server or being notified that one came in? Because you can get it to figure out that there's an MMS waiting to be downloaded, but it never downloads...

    I'm s-off'd running JB AOKP. They fixed mms for every carrier except virgin. He said it would require some changes to the smali to get it to work.

    I recently switched my motorola phone from Verizon US to Virgin Canada. Using this app enabled me to use the mms on this phone. Note that when I did switch I did have to have the codes put in to unlock the phone. Works like a charm.
    Cheers!

    I your stock rom. Download a file manager (ES File Explorer or something like that) Look in /ect/ and you should see a file called apns-conf.xml. I that file is all the info you will need.
