    My phone doesn't seem to want to send picture messages to people. I try to send them but the red timer looking thing on the side of the message never goes away and they never get the picture.

    Also when someone sends me something and I press "Download" it says "Downloading" and doesn't do anything at all.

    I don't know why. I use Metro PCS and I'm on the $50 plan.

    If you modded your phone, You've got to check your APN settings.

    No Mods that I am aware of. I mean, I have Go Launcher, that's about it. It's not rooted either.

    Also why when I use Facebook on my phone and comment and stuff, it doesn't show the little phone icon next to my posts and say I'm mobile when it does that to my other friends mobile posts?

    You should probably contact metro about the mms problem. They might be able to do some voodoo.

    I just solved the same issue by deleting all previous messages, must be some unknown limit. :)

    I've had random MMS issues when using market SMS apps, but haven't had an issue using the stock SMS. Are you trying to send/receive large files? The carriers have a size limit, and I'm sure they wouldn't give you an error message saying "File too large".

    Just delete the old messages first and then resend your pics they go right through......

    FIXED! I switched my SIM back to my MetroPCS phone, tested the MMS (successfully), and copied the APNs to my S4. Here are my settings:

    APN -
    MMSC -
    MCC - 310
    MNC - 260
    APN type - default,mms,supl

    Worked like a charm! I'm in Austin, TX, if that makes a difference.
