    This is only for metropcs users running Icarus 1.1, as the APN settings are wrong.

    Here's the fix:

    1. Go to Settings > Wireless and networks >Mobile networks > Access Point Names
    2. Press menu and select new APN.
    3. Enter the following info.

    Name: MetroPCS

    APN: <Not set>

    Proxy: proxy.metropcs.net

    Port: 3128

    Username: <Not set>

    Password: <Not set>

    Server: <Not set>

    MMSC: http://mms.metropcs.net:3128/mmsc

    MMS proxy: <Not set>

    MMS port: <Not set>

    MCC: 310

    MNC; 16

    Authentication type: PAP or CHAP

    APN type: default,supl,mms

    4. After you have entered the above, press menu and save. Now make sure that the new apn has a green dot beside it.

    5. Now you should be able to send and receive mms messages

    I have Metro also, and i upgraded ti icarus 1.1. Works great, but i am in the same boat as eccentric. I used the ROM for metro, flashed successfully but was unable to send/recieve mms. i tried what the above steps suggested but no go...anyone else tried something different???

    So this is what i ended up doing. Like a fool i didnt save my rom to my PC...oh well. so i ended up downloading the rom for "both" carriers, went through the whole reflash/install process using the rom for both carriers, everything went well but was still unable to send mms. then i changed the settings that are described in the post, and....BAM! i was able to send and recieve mms!!! happy icarus user now!!

    I used the rom for both carriers and mms worked out of the box. I didn't need to change anything;0) It is weird how everyone is having different experiences.

    Initially when i went to my APN settings i noticed there was already one there for metro and everything seemed the same as above so I left it there... I could receive pics but not send them.... so i put in the NEW APN exactly as above (except I added my username info from the metro apn that was there before) then made sure to put the green dot on the NEW APN and it worked!!!! I can now send and receive pics.....

    Like cast said its wierd how different ppl are having issues with it. I didnt add a user name when i recreated my APN, and it works great, and cast said nothing had to be changed on his APN!....oh well at least were all happy :D :D

    Ok I followed above steps I can now send and recieve pics but for some strange reason I send a standard text to a new person unless I send a pic to them first. Anyone ?

    I've noticed issues on occasion with SMS/MMS programs installed from the market, while the stock MMS app seems to work just fine.
