Droid 3, Widgetsoid, Data & MMS

    I'm totally unable to send or receive picture message, and I'm starting to think Widgetsoid is causing the problem. Just got my Droid 3 around 2 weeks ago, and it seems to me that about the time I installed Widgetsoid the MMS stopped sending and receiving. The messages come in, but pic downloads fail every time. And every pic I try to send fails.

    So, I ensured Mobile Data was enabled. I confirmed that Widgetsoid was unchecked in the Device Administrator list, per the instructions in the Widgetsoid FAQ (it wasn't checked in the first place) and removed the widget from my home screen. I haven't uninstalled it yet, but I'm still not seeing any movement on the pic I'm trying to send.

    I'm using the stock messaging app for texts, and cleared the data earlier today.

    Any ideas on where I might be going wrong?

    Maybe you should just try uninstalling if you haven't yet..I have widgetsoid and I have no problems with mms with handcent or stock mms

    Edit: last resort would be factory reset...I would hate to have to wipe everything but sometimes its the only solution

    Is is multiple people sending you a picture message or just 1 person constantly sending it?

    Also if you are underage it might just be that your parents blocked it.

    It's multiple people sending different messages with un-downloadable pics.

    And I should hope my parents aren't blocking my pic messages. I'm a 37 year old father of two, fer cryeye. :)

    Success! An uninstall and reboot seems to have done the trick.

    thebarbrr: would you mind posting the settings you're using in Widgetsoid for the data toggle? I'm thinking I set something wrong and FUBAR'd myself. I'd love to reinstall this if possible. Loved having transparent switches over my koi pond LWP.

    The only things that I have set up on my widgetsoid are bluetooth, gps, wifi, data sync now brightness, and battery percentage...I have that data toggle for syncing. Is that what you are talking about?

    No, there's a mobile data switch to turn 3G on and off that needs a few preferences set up. Whatever I set seems to have mucked up the data retrieval for MMS messages. Ah well. Thanks anyway.
