    I had the same problem on 2 separate phones. This fix worked both times. Use a file explorer with SU, and navigate to /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/telephony.db and delete that file, then restart your phone. After the restart, you should be able to send and receive MMS

    Try using go sms pro it is a great app and you're sms goes thru go servers it works for me when I use a custom rom because a lot of custom roms have trouble with sms and mms.

    I haven't been receiving text messages and my email new message indicator quit working. Instead I get an OZMAIL text and from what I read that is a Handcent issue. Can someone help me cause Verizon hasn't been able to do a thing! Now my voice mail indicator quit working :(

    I have tried many methods to try to resolve my mms problem. None work and When I perform a file search I cannot find the above file or even anything close. This problem has been ongoing for months now. I contacted credo and they told me to do a factory reset. I don't want to do that and start from scratch.. Please help!

    You might try a work-around with the free app 'Save MMS'

    This file will not be on your sdcard. Its in the /data partition of your phone.

    You need to use a file explorer with root access (and have to be rooted)
    If you use esfile explorer then you need to press menu, select the tools menu:


    Then select 'root explorer':


    It will ask for su permission.
    Once you grant it su, select 'mount r/w'


    and make sure everything is set to r/w.


    Now back up to the area where you see your files, and at the top you should see a bar that says something similar to this


    You're going to want to press the tab on the left (the one the arrow is pointing to in the picture above) until it says device
    You should then see the data folder:


    The file you are looking for is in that folder.

    Thanks for giving me a nice road map to your fix, I found the file and deleted it and I still cannot send photos. i can receive them. I also can send and receive texts just fine. I run MegaTron 6.1.1. I use Handcent. I also tried Go and the stock messenger. I tried the APN back up and restore (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1824916)

    Still no mms??
