As the title generally states, I've gotten my VZQ moto X set up with my MetroPCS SIM, and have encountered an issue.

If I don't use a manually entered APN, I get H+ signal, with voice and SMS, but no data.

If I use either the fast.metropcs.com or fast.t-mobile.com APNs, I get 4G LTE signal with data and voice, but no MMS.

Anyone know what the deal is?

Have you input the MMSC url in your APN? I believe it should be:

MMSC URL: http://metropcs.mmsmvno.com/mms/wapenc


You HAVE to put in the http:// as well. Try this URL and advise if you can send MMS.

That is what I have. Looking deeper into the forums, it seems the MotoX has issues with voice/MMS over LTE outside of the carrier the phone shipped from. I've now got my phone configured to stay on 3G/HSPA+ and everything seems to be working as it should. Still, it saddens me to not have LTE without sacrificing voice and MMS features. Hopefully a fix arises in the future.
