    Hi guys,

    So I bought a Sprint Galaxy S3 about a year ago and (thanks to this forum) got it flashed over to Virgin Mobile running CM10. For the past year, everything has worked great, EXCEPT I can't receive any MMS. I can send them just fine, but if someone sends me one, I don't get anything. I have tried manually changing the APN settings in Go SMS and applying the APN fix using APN backup and restore, but still no dice. I've just kind of lived with it thus far, but now it's getting kind of old.

    After searching the vast interwebs, I haven't been able to find any alternative solutions- most people seem to have problems sending but not receiving. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried getting your MSL code, flashing a TW rom, getting into the hidden menu(##3282#), edit, others, mmsc url, and changing your url that way? That should work. Google the mmsc url for VM. I have seen it in several threads. Good luck!

    Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure what a TW rom is, but I just checked my mmsc url and it's already set to the virgin mobile url

    TW means Touchwiz, meaning a non CM or AOSP rom. If you're on Sprint, check out a stock 4.3 build to see if that fixes the issue. If it does, you know it's the rom, or at the very least a setting in your phone that's conflicting with your mms.
