    I recently purchased the LG Motion. I have not been able to send a mms, but I am able 2 receive them. I rooted my phone, and still nothing. Ive tried stock ICS mms, stock android messaging app, nothing is working. Ive even tried changing the APN info. Somebody please help. Its getting really frusturating,

    sounds like you need a new one. problem with the phone itself.

    Actually, it sounds like a problem with the towers.

    How do you know that it failed? What exactly does it do/say? Have you tried other messaging apps from The Play Store?

    Did you update the PRL or verify what network you're connected to?

    It just says "Message could not be sent" and when i touch the picture to delete it, it says "This message has failed to send. Please select an action for the message". I have tried GoSMS and handcent. Nothing is working. I have not updated the prl, but I have checked to verify the network. Im gonna try to update the prl now

    I'm in Miami, FL and my prl is 3032.

    Call *228, option 5, and it should update you automatically.

    Does it take a minute for the "Message could not be sent" message or is it almost instant? Have you tried different pictures? Did updating the PRL help?

    The Same thing happens to me but only with picture messages, this has never happened with my admire but somehow it's happening on my motion.

    On mine it just stays as sending...

    my prl is 3032, wifi or 4g don't help. Mabey the messaging app itself (LG) is not very useful, wonder if I replace it with another mms app would fix the prob.

    Did you very you're not roaming and the network is set to metro pcs only and not automatic? Also have you tried flashing to stock, send out to verify it works, then root and test again? Did this work before routing? What version of android are you using?

    I'm on the limited data $40 plan, and can receive txt w/ pics, but can't send them or longer script mms text. Is this because of my plan?

    i had this issue until i found out you can only send MMS through your mobile data.

    have you tried turning your wifi off while leaving 4G on and sending them?

    This issue just started for me today. I try to send an MMS and it just says "sending" but the mms never sends. If someone sends me an MMS I get a box that says "download". When I click on it nothing happens.

    My phone has been rooted for over a month now & this has never been a problem. Of course in the store they want to do a master reset right away because that is their answer to everything.

    And I've called *228 twice now. After doing that I was unable to receive gmail on my phone & also I'm unable to use speech to text. When I try I get an "unable to connect" message.

    Yes, mine is resolved.

    I was just too embarrassed to come back & admit that somehow the data was turned off on my device.

    Apparently, the F update fixes MMS issues from pervious firmwares. Try flashing that.

    To Change the Roaming mode to 'MetroPCS Only', click on
    Menu button (I'm guessing that's what it's called; it has 3 horizontal lines)
    System settings
    Mobile networks
    System select
    MetroPCS Only

    Just fyi.

    For us newbies out there :). Hih.

    Same exact thing happens to me and my wife on our phones. Resetting the phone fixes the sending part, but for the downloading part we have to do a battery pull.....which only fixes it temporarily. I think its a bug myself. We are both stock and have the f update. Honestly we didnt see this issue on d.

    Battery pull doesn't fix mine. I'm going to try a System Reset (*228 didn't work for me either).

    For other Newbies, that's:

    Menu Button (3 horizontal lines)
    System Settings
    (scroll down to Personal category) Backup & reset
    Factory data reset (**WARNING: ERASES ALL DATA ON PHONE**)

    I disabled and re-enabled the WiFi and re-clicked on Download message and I got it this time. :) I haven't tried to send any MMS yet.

    How To:
    Menu button (3 horizontal lines)
    System settings
    Click on blue dot in upper right corner to Disable. Click it again to Turn On Wi-Fi.

    Good Luck!
