    I can send/receive photos via stock messaging but not via third party messages. Sliding messaging, Hangouts, Go SMS, and Handcent are some apps I have tried but none have worked. Receiving can work sometimes, but sending photos never works. Any solutions for this? :thinking:

    -Manually enter boost mobile APN
    -Have app auto config APN

    I am rooted btw.

    The APN determines whether you have data access (for things like connecting with an MMS server to send and receive pictures) so evidently what you have is NOT an APN problem.

    Oh okay well do you have an idea of what could be the problem?

    I have the same problem. The only way to send and receive pics is thru stock mms. Ive literally tried 15 different sms apps and all of them fail to send pics. ive looked everywhere and havent found a fix. Not that i dont like the native sms but, i love to customize. Surprised that no one seems to mind this issue. Im on boost mobile running Simplicity Rom.

    Update: when I switch my network to CDMA I can use 3rd party messaging apps. For some reason if the 4g is turned off it works. But only on 3g. At least for me.
