Does anyone know how to work around this? So I can receive mms in the standard thread

Yeah I have that same problem with mms and I'm using Straight Talk but my biggest concern is:

When someone calls me I cannot reply calls directly from recent calls if it is not on my contacts list
cuz it would redirect the call to verizon and give some "international calling error"

Do someone knows something about this????

Try this:

Open up the phone app and go to Menu - Settings - Call. Scroll down to the bottom to "Assisted dialing." Turn it off and see if that helps.

Did you find a permanent fix? I am having exact same issue. Can you share your prefixer code that fixed the issue for you?

I am able to successfully use my VZ Galaxy Note 3 and my wife uses her VZ Galaxy S5, both devices on T-mobile Edge, HSPA, HSPA+ (21mbps), and LTE (band 4) frequencies. These devices unfortunately will not do DC-HSPA+ (42mbps), but that's not a big deal for us because LTE coverage is good where we live. We have no issues with making voice calls, or sending SMS/MMS, and don't have to switch APN's or toggle between Global Mode or GSM/UMTS mode. We leave them on Global Mode with the correct APN settings.

Here's the guide I followed for both (with correct APN settings screenshots to accommodate for MMS on page 4 or 5 i believe):

Has anyone figured out a way to get T-mobile's version of ISIS or T-mobile Wifi calling working on VZ devices yet?

I can only seem to get Edge, nothing more, no LTE or 3G/4G. Tried everything on both a Verizon S5 as well as a Verizon Note 3. Maybe its my location. Though I am in a big city with T-mobile LTE coverage, where a native Tmo device connects just fine.
