    Well it is, in fact, root related.

    We need root to get MMS.

    Go into Messages, Menu > Settings and look at Connection settings. mms verizon url. Can't change that without root?

    Needs to be mms.mycricket.com...

    Incorrect.

    MMS/wap, etc connections are stored inside of a file in the android OS for CDMA. You must edit this file, it is editable without rooting by using an app in the market.

    Download APNBACKUPRESTORE from the market (FREE)


    Choose Backup APN

    Mount your phone through USB on your computer, A file will be on your SD card that you can use notepad/textedit to edit these settings, your MMS settings will be listed inside of that text file, change them to what they need to be. Save the file (make a backup of it just in case something gets messed up so you can restore it to defaults).

    Unmount from USB, go to Apnbackuprestore

    restore the file.


    Go to Messages>menu>settings>connection settings

    Your settings will now be changed permanently.

    You can restore to default settings inside of messages settings menu also instead of restoring from your backed up APN file to make things easier.

    What settings were you typing in?

    I would just try mms.mycricket.com/etcetc

    What is there to mess up?

    I JUSAT GOT IT


    I JUST GOT IT RIGHT NOW FIRST TRY

    here it is:

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' standalone='yes' ?>
    <apns>
    <apn name="CDMA" numeric="00000" mcc="000" mnc="00" apn="0" user="null" server="null" password="null" proxy="null" port="" mmsproxy="" mmsport="" mmsprotocol="" mmsc="" type="*" />
    <apn name="Production" numeric="00000" mcc="000" mnc="00" apn="1" user="YOUR10DIGITCRICKETNUMBER@mycricket.com" server="null" password="cricket" proxy="null" port="null" mmsproxy="wap.mycricket.com" mmsport="8080" mmsprotocol="2.0" mmsc="http://mms.mycricket.com/servlets/mms" type="mms" />
    <apn name="Android" numeric="310995" mcc="310" mnc="995" apn="internet" user="*" server="*" password="*" proxy="null" port="null" mmsproxy="null" mmsport="null" mmsprotocol="null" mmsc="null" type="null" />
    </apns>

    done.

    Just edit your XML file with mmsproxy=wap.mycricket.com and the corresponding port to 8080 and user=myphonenumber@mycricket.com and password=cricket

    DONE.

    Before changing _any_ of these settings, I was able to get one picture through to her phone (and another random old one from a couple weeks ago got through at the same time somehow) with the Verizon apn settings in there.

    I just set these settings, made sure Mobile Web still works (it does) and sent a picture to her phone, and from her phone.

    Everything 100%.

    It was that easy. There's a kid charging $$ to do this on the Droid. I'm going to blow up his spot.

    I'll e-mail you the xml file if you want. But just right click the .xml file, hit Edit, and set those settings.

    Apn backup and restore.

    Did you delete the apns before you restored?

    Does it still say verizon mms in your connection settings under messages, menu, settings?

    Ok so I got it to work now but if you use a broadband number it will not work because its trying to sent the mms through the broadband number if you change your broadband number or "security number" back to your moblie number and then create a proxy setting with better cut or any cut then it will work but you will not have the app store unless your using wifi internet still works but not as fast.

    You need to download anycut, create new shortcut, activity, proxy. Then use the proxy icon on your home screen to set wap.mycricket.com and port 8080.

    Then web will work super.

    Nope, just get on WiFi.

    Cricket uses Simple IP and just web stuff. That wap.mycricket.com:8080 really only works for http and https on port 80. So even often long-pressing an image and Save Image won't even work! It stinks.

    But it's how it is.

    Sometimes apps with web content in them will load, but that's about it. I have to imagine that there would be an app to layer another proxy and connect to more things, but that either would require root, or more know-how in altering Network Settings on these handsets than I have.

    My gf goes to Wendy's or Subway or walks around Campus at school and downloads apps from market etc. just uses them at home whenever she wants. Writes down what she wants to dl the next day.

    Has anyone seen anything like proxycap, it is used on winmo phones to tunnel everything through a proxy. Would be nice to find something like this for android.
    Also does anyone know where the specific files are that set up the data connection? I think I found the xml for setting up mms in /system/framework/framework-res.apk res/xml/apns.xml
    however it seems to be a compressed xml. I may try to edit it in hex editor to play.

    But I am interested in finding the file that sets up data connection. Anyone?
