    I am having inconsistent delivery of photos via text/mms.

    I am using Handcent.

    After the picture resizes and I click send I initially get a message in the notification bar telling me that it was Unable to Deliver - Retrying.

    This happens EVERY time, however, in some cases the picture/mms seems to go through while other times it doesn't. I check the delivery reports and there is no confirmation that these mms messages either get delivered or not.

    Has anyone experienced this and is there a solution? Using the settings, I've decreased the default picture size and I increased the allowable size of the file able to be delivered. This hasn't made a difference.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I too am having this problem. I'm not sure if it's a phone issue or VZW issue.

    Ah, so I'm not alone. I need to bump this to the front.

    Any experts out there with advice or a solution?

    Thanks,

    I have this problem also. I emailed the Handcent dev over a week ago and got no response.

    Does 3G go active when you send an MMS?

    I assume it did. I wasn't having any network issues. Service has been great. What are you thinking might be a problem?

    There is an update for Handcent available. The only thing it says that has changed is froyo support. Going to download and see if anything has changed.



    *edit* the update does not get rid of the error message.

    Make sure to open the stock messenger app, click settings. Scroll down to 'Failure Notification', uncheck box. Close stock messenger app, try using Handcent and see if this clears up some of the problem.

    Thanks for the tip, however, it was already unchecked and I don't think that would answer why sometimes the picture wouldn't go through. Let's keep trying though.

    @v8dreaming - True, the update didn't make a difference for me either.

    Thanks,
