ATT Moto X - will not send while connected to WiFi
My friend's Moto X just arrived. Extremely stoked about this awesome phone, but he ran into a weird problem. It would not send an MMS picture message without first disconnecting from his home network (WiFi). I did some research and came up with this post: MMS wont's send when on WiFi
from this forum. It was for an S4 on VZ, so I wanted to post in the Moto X community the following hack that worked for ATT as well:
Send yourself a picture from your Gmail account that's associated with your phone, and it will work itself out. Once you have received the e-mail on the phone, MMS will work even when connected to WiFi.
I understand that MMS messages don't actually transmit via WiFi as they still go out over the data network. Therefore, you must have sufficient data coverage for the MMS to send. Another setting to check if this doesn't work is that the "Data enabled" box is checked under Settings > more (under Wifi/Bluetooth) > Mobile Networks while
you are on WiFi.
Hope this helps anyone else out.
