    Hi!
    I have a Galaxy S3, which was originally built for CREDO, (meaning there is no removable SD card) and then flashed for use with metro PCS.

    My mproblems are two:

    1: I can't open MMS (multimedia messages,) Since it always says, "Download failed"

    2: I constantly get messages from everyone in a particular contact group, that they did not send, meaning there is some kind of auto messaging going on, possibly fro and yet I still get messages from everyone in the group.

    Please see the screen shot, and feel free to chime in! It's really frustrating.

    Thanks!

    Do you have the correct APN settings in the phone?

    So if your data works that's good have you ever been able to send a pic?
    Have you tried 3rd party messaging apps?

    No. It cannot send or receive MMS messages.


    what is the third party app you recommend?

    thanks!

    Looking at the screen shot your Wi-Fi is turned on. What happens if Wi-Fi is tuned off? Do you still get Data, able to get to the internet?
