    I've got a question for anyone who uses handcent on the regular.

    On my old phone (Galaxy Nexus on Sprint), when i sent an MMS, it would send over wifi, never thought twice about it. I switched carriers to AT&T, and upgraded my phone to the GS4 Active, however, when i send an MMS with it now, even while on wifi, it will send it through the carrier instead of through the wifi. I've gone through every setting i can think of at least ten times, is it something with the carrier, or the new phone? someone please offer me some insight.

    SMS and MMS messages are not sent via internet (either data or WiFi) they are always sent via your carrier's phone signal. That why they are billed differently than your data.
