    Hello all. just received my beautiful, wonderful, lovely HTC hero for christmas and i'm having a small problem.

    I am on o2 PAYG and my hero is locked to Orange UK, so i invested in a REBELSIMII (as i am too scared to try rooting my phone). I am unable to receive or send MMS. I have followed these

    O2 Forum :: View topic - No 3G support for HTC HERO??!!!

    instructions and still no joy. I know some people are able to see small thumbnail but mine just keeps saying "download of message was unsuccessful. Please any help, hints or tips are hugely appreciated.


    Carrie :confused:

    Did you try sending the word active to 2020?

    I have already spoken to o2 and they have said that they do not support the hero so i don't think it will work but will give it a blast anyway. thanks

    Got a few difference in my settings to those in that post you list.

    mms - I have no proxy, just not set for proxy and the port field after it. Server is not set on my phone. mms protocol is 2.0

    mobile web apn - username is O2web

    Worth a go. These are all settings that the network or my sim gave to my vanilla sim free hero. I configured nothing!

    let us know the outcome.

    Hiya! gave that a try and still not getting anything. Resigned myself to the fact that i have a great phone that can't do picture messaging unless i change networks.

    thanks anyway
