    I've been using Handcent SMS for messaging ever since my Original Incredible and never really tried the stock messenger on the Rez. Today for no reason at all, I used the stock messenger app to send a picture and it went through without 4G being turned on. When sending MMS using Handcent I have to turn on 4G or the MMS never goes through. Has anyone else experienced this and is there a way to fix it? I've checked through the Handcent settings and can't find anything that would fix this.
    Any suggestions?

    Ooh, I haven't used Handcent since I've had my Rezound... I love a mystery!

    Found this in a XDA thread:

    ""I figured it out... After reinstalling handcent.... Too bad I have to reconfigure handcent.

    In handcent go to settings...application settings......default messaging application..... Then pick at the bottom "use for all SMS & mms"
    Now it works!

    I'm curious to know if it would have worked without reinstalling.... Seems like I remember that setting was on "disable" not sure how it got set to that!""


    From Handcent webpage: (emphasis mine)

    Hey Bhelios thanks for trying and all the super sleuthing but it's a no-go.
    I already had it set on All(SMS & MMS) and it's still not working for MMS unless I have 4G turned on.

    Hmmmmm The mystery goes on.....

    I think I'll try uninstalling and then reinstalling to see if that works. I just hate having to setup all of my customizations again. Yeah, I'm lazy like that ;-)

    Well a re-install didn't work. Maybe I'll try Go SMS and see if it works without 4G being activated.

    I just ran into this and the user I was sending to was blocking photo/video texts
