    Anybody having issues sending MMS messages? I get an error all the time saying message failed network error, retrying. Thoughts?

    I get it with every mms sent but it's meaningless (at least in my case) since the message is in fact sent and received by the recipient. I thought perhaps it was due to using Chomp instead of the native messaging app, but I didn't investigate it further as I knew they were indeed being sent.

    Looks like maybe its only to ATT customers.

    I get the notification for every mms sent regardless of carrier, even within the verizon network. I know it is sending because I get it even when another phone in the house is sitting next to me and I watch the pic download on that handset. There is a problem with mms messages to ATT subscribers, primarily iphone users that I encountered with the Dare, the Omnia, and the EnV. The networks don't seem to like each other sometimes it seems.

    3G must be enabled for MMS to work. Did you try this?

    No it doesn't. SMS and MMS are sent over 1xRTT.

    I am having trouble sending pics to AT&T customers. My partner and one of my close friends seem to never get my pic messages. But I tried sending the same message to myself and others (who are not AT&T customers) and they go through. It's frustrating, because these are the two people I send pic messages to the most. I have Handcent, but have also tried the stock messaging app, and I get the same (non) results. I will try sending to xxx-xxx-xxxx@att.mms.net and see if that works. (Oh, and I have also tried to scale down the resolution so that the pics aren't as large, still same results...and only seems to be with AT&T customers...strange!)

    Anyone else having the same problem? Any other ideas/solutions?

    Ah I thought it was fixed after using just the stock messaging app. Nope same issue. I gave up. Between the signal issues and this issue it was too frustrating as my nexus one worked fine. I ported back to AT&T last night.

    Possibly try disabling MMS delivery reports. Seems like a network error would be a different beast yet my MMS is working great. Also bumped up my max message size to 1.2M for MMS. No idea if that'll help but maybe worth a go since mine are going through error free. May be just the signal strength at the time of the send, idk.

    I have the HTC HD2 under T-Mobile and rooted with Android.. I'm able to receive MMS messages, but my pictures will not send out at all... Does anyone know a quick fix for this? I don't want to have to get Android re-installed on my phone..
