Default [Q] unlocked att htc m8 cannot send/receive mms

I sim unlocked my htc m8 and am now using a tmobile sim card. 4G network, calls, sms everything works just fine. However, i am not able to send/receive mms. I called t-mobile for help, and they told me to change my apn setting, which i did. And that only fixed my problem with 4g data(i initially had problem with both 4g data and mms) No matter what i try for apn setting, MMS won't send.

My current apn setting is: apn:fast.t-mobile.com
mmsc: mms,msg,eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
mms protocal: wap2.0
mcc:310
ncm:260
apn type: default,supl,admin,dun,mms

everything else is not set. I really don't understand why would mms not work if both 4g data and individual sms works.
Anyone have an idea?

Did you figure out how to fix the mms yet?

I have had the same issue. 4gLTE works just fine. I have ATT visual voicemail working. I just cant seem to get over the MMS issue.

I switched the hangouts today and that works just fine for sending and recieving MMS. What's weird is it also records what is being sent and recived into my HTC Messages app as well. However, when I disable hangouts and try to send MMS direct from HTC messages, no luck?

Don't know if you got this but you need http:// in front of the mmsc field I think.

For AT&T HTC M8 Unlocked "T-Mobile User's" Only!

For those that might not have figured it out yet: Backup your current telephony.db file and Replace it.. Unzip and Copy the file attached to: data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases with ES File Manager (Any Root Browser Should Work) then Reboot and wait till you get Data, make sure you can browse the interweb and test sending a photo to yourself!

This was achieved on my Stock Rooted AT&T Unlocked HTC M8 on T-Mobile!

Backing up stuff is always Good! Recovery and a Good Root File Manager are your friends!
