    I could not send out any MMS text messages (photo attachment). I could receive them ok. Then, I turned WiFi off and it worked. I turned WiFi back on and it didn't work. I use Sprint.

    Any ideas before I give Sprint a call?

    On another note. When I try to search for "MMS" in this forum, I get an error saying the word is too short. How can you search for "MMS"?

    BTW, I updated my profile and it didn't help. And my wife's Galaxy S3 is able to send MMS with WiFi on or off. Same network, same location.

    Found the problem. I have Adblock installed (which only works on WiFi...unless you are rooted). I turned Adblock off and it's working now. I guess it's a "known" bug. It wasn't that useful anyway because it didn't work on 3G. I guess I'll have to root the phone soon so I can get rid of all the annoying ads. (Spare me any of of your "ads are necessary" comments).
