Ive checked with a community specifically for my carrier, and the way they say doesnt work (changing the APN to MMS only.. it lets me select it, but nothing works unless internet + MMS is selected as the type.
So basically im wondering if there is some "illegal" root type of way to allow the same thing? Ive disabled background data on all apps that would let me except messaging (it doesnt seem to have ever used any, and since I want MMS it seemed silly not to allow it).
android itself seems to use a bit of background data and wont let me disallow that.
for the time being im stuck to waiting until im in a wifi area to send or receive MMS as i dont have (or want) a data plan. with my carrier MMS uses the data system but does not charge as though using data - theyre included within unlimited messaging. but sadly they must use the data network. if i could find a way to make sure that ONLY picture messages sending or receiving are using data.... i would be extremely pleased.
Anyone have any experience this?
Im running the rooted but full stock version of ICS 4.0.4 as can be found in the forums here. Dan's i think?
anyway, if someone with more exprience then me could let me know, that would be great!
