    For some reason I cant send mms messages with the stock mms client. Anyone else have this problem or know why?

    Have you looked at the aloysius thread over on xda? All of your issues are addressed in that post.

    You will most likely need to do an apn backup to get mms to work. Search apn trick on xda to figure out how to do it.

    I looked and the files listed were not available to download. Not only that but the instructions are very un clear. He says " download apn backup, download the file then back it up then load the file into your sd card." For one, is he talking about 2 different files? Can someone just point me in the correct direction? I searched and the file was only available for download 10 times and it was reached.

    You need to download apn backup and restore, find a rom that messaging works on and use apn backup to backup the apn, flash the new rom then download apn backup and restore again and use it to restore apn. I think if you look over on xda someone has an apn backup posted. If you can find it you can download it and use apn backup to restore it after flashing aloysius

    Where is that apn restore file? I can't find it anywhere.

    Another thing to add, it wont work with stock msg client. Must use Handcent or Chomp. And also make sure you are not on wifi. Can only send while on Verizon network.

    And about your restore file. It auto finds it for you once you already made a backup. Sounds like you didnt make a backup off a ROM like Ivan's first.

    I have handcent. You dont need to back it up off of a working rom because there is a.zip file somewhere on herr with working apns, that is what i am looking for.

    the time you spent waiting or looking for a zip file with a working apn, you could have nanded your current rom, flashed a new one, backed up the apn, then restored your nand and installed the working apn. Takes just a few minutes. its what i do for each new sprint based rom i flash since i keep a working apn on my sd card

    I think since idont have a computer, the other way is much easier.

    Its better to use a comp to download roms... Im not in a rush, dont really want to do all that when theres a simple.zip out there.

    Here's the deal.

    APN Backup & Restore is an app in the market - it's free. What it does is it records APN settings into a file on your SD card. And then, if you want, you can later restore those same settings. The file it stores the settings in is a .XML file.

    What one previous poster told you was that you could load a ROM where you knew MMS was working, and use "APN Backup & Restore" to store a copy of those settings on your SD card (backup). Then, when you are in Aloysius V12, you again use "APN Backup & Restore" to load that file off the SD card into Aloysius (restore).

    But, someone has already done the first step for you:

    xda-developers - View Single Post - MMS Issues?

    In that post, he attached a .zip file with the .XML file inside it (from Ivanmmj's Official 1.0 ROM, I think). Certainly you could download that file and use a File Manager (yes, on your phone) to unpack it and put the .XML file in the root folder of your phone. (Note that to download things that are attachments on XDA, you need to be logged in.)

    If you want a more direct route, Andrizoid posted up a link to the identical .XML file on his site:
