anyone know where the settings are for MMS?

I'm trying to figure out how to send MMS on MetroPCS. on the Evo's I used a APN method, but apparently ICS doesn't allow 3rd party apps to write to APN. so I'm trying to enter the values manually. got into the DATA menu, entered a couple of the values, but a few other other values from that APN file are nowhere to be found in the DATA menu...and QPST refuses to see my phone?

any info on this would be great!

USCC
autoprime I have a USCC phone and have had no luck backing up the IMEI using the conventional QPST method. I have been searching Sprints info because some have had a similar problem.

When I try QPST it stops at 16% and says: "Roaming Lists could not be read".
Tried multiple times no luck.

I made a short cut to my hidden menus and everything looks to be the same as the OP.

My IMEI is currently fine.

That being the case is there a way to make a good backup now and restore it if things go bad? If this is possible can the backup be accessed and stored on a pc?

My goal is to find a way to back up the IMEI for myself and other USCC sg3 users. Any help would be very appreciated.

Which QPST program exactly is giving you this error? Also, random question for you... do the USCC Samsung devices have a 16 digit password that's used in QXDM? All Verizon Samsung's share the same password.. all Sprint Samsung's share the same password. You guys are kinda similar to Verizon's right.. same radio and all? so you know if 2010031619780721 works? Do you have QXDM or CDMA WS installed? Need to be able to send that password to the phone to fully unlock. then we'll work on backing up IMEI.

Are you referring to the NV RESTORE TestMode options? If so, I know of no current method to save that backup to a PC.
The TestMode NV RESTORE option should be pretty solid... if your phone boots.. you should be able to get to that menu. Same would be needed to get to QPST(booting phone).

So get back to me on which QPST app you're trying.. and what exactly is giving you the error... as well as any info on a 16 digit QXDM password.

sorry for the delay in response. i assume you got this fixed?

Post #6 on the first page of this thread has a fix if you messed with korea mode. you may need to go back to ICS for this instead of Jellybean.

Plug
ATT: NAM BLOCK;


the Mobile Object Model (MOM) can be categorized as PRL and NAM, with the NAM blocks existing as several different types. For example, the MDN NAM block holds the directory number for calling the mobile. The CDMA NAM block holds parameters used when the mobile is operating in the PCS spectrum. The Dual Mode NAM block holds parameters used by a PCS or CDMA mobile while it is being used in the CDMA/analog spectrum. The IMSI_T block holds the true IMSI of the mobile station

hope this helps.

If there is another thread on this in the Sprint Galaxy S III forums I apologize. Just going to outline this menu which is found on stock Sprint GS3 Touchwiz roms.

Getting Started
You can use Any Cut, Better Cut, Nova Launcher etc etc to make a shortcut to this menu.
1. Better Cut > New ShortCut > No > All Activities > IOTHiddenMenu(first one listed).
2. Any Cut > ?
3. Nova Launcher > Long press on home screen > Shortcuts > Activities > Scroll to IOTHiddenMenu and click it to expand > Scroll down to the first IOTHiddenMenu in that list(under GPSCLRX)

Now we can open our new shortcut and you should see the following screen...


USBSetting Menu
This menu switches the phone's USB mode when connected to a computer.

MTP (Media Transfer Protocol; device shows up as USB drive)
MTP + ADB (default setting; should be self-explanatory)
PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol; device shows up as camera)
PTP + ADB (should be self-explanatory)
RMNET + DM + MODEM (RMNet = USB virtual Ethernet framework; DM = Diagnostic Mode; Modem = self-explanatory)
DM + MODEM + ADB (self-explanatory) (best setting when using QPST/QXDM/etc)

LTE Mode Menu
I do not have LTE in my area yet. Could anyone detail what some of the options below do exactly? I'm sure one is for LTE only.
TestMode Menu > CDMA > COMMON > NEXT PAGE > NEXT PAGE > PREF MODE SET may be the better alternative to this.

LTE Service Forced
Enable LTE Mode
Enable GLOBAL Mode
Enable CDMA Mode
(default)

TestMode Menu

1. UMTS
UMTS > COMMON > NV REBUILD (NV REBUILD, NV BACKUP, NV RESTORE)
Everything else under UMTS either doesn't work.. or isn't worth messing with.
2. CDMA
CDMA > COMMON > NEXT PAGE > NEXT PAGE > PREF MODE SET (CDMA/EVDO/LTE, GSM/WCDMA, LTE ONLY, CDMA/LTE, CDMA ONLY, EVDO ONLY)
Everything else under CDMA either doesn't work.. or isn't worth messing with.
3. LTE
Nothing of interest.. just displays LTE debug status.
4. SIM
SIM > CHECK NV (Helps identify possible incorrect settings. Displays current PREF MODE. NV should be set under RTRE Config.)
Not worth messing with anything else in here.
5. run EFS SYNC()
Doesn't do anything.

There are lots of other options in here to mess with but most are broken, not supported or just really not worth messing with. All the MSL settings for example... no matter what.. I can't seem to read/write a new MSL via Test Mode. CDMA > CONTROL > MSL Edit has broken my MSL. *Update* Fixed MSL. I also messed up my EFS playing with the wrong stuff. I was able to recover.. but BE CAREFUL!!

To get to the APNs on ICS, use Titanium Backup to make the APN Backup and Restore app a system app, reboot, then in APN Backup and Restore, check the box to bypass ICS check. You should be good to go.

OMG, you have saved my sanity with this post! I've been pretty good at flashing and programming my family's phones and some for friends but most of those have been HTC units. I didn't think twice when I got a killer deal on a couple of 32GB GSIII's but trying to program these for our service has just about had me sticking my head in the oven more than once. One of the issues was that it seemed to depend on the handset's mood as to whether or not it would accept a code input via the keypad. I didn't even think of using a launcher to create a master shortcut like you have here. I'm still not quite there as far as getting these things programmed the way I want them but this post cut my irritation factor in half! Having said that, I'm still seriously considering tossing somebody a few bucks if they'd just do these for me. I love figuring things out and working on things like this as great puzzles but the hours I've put into these so far have kept me from getting actual work done. Are Samsungs always 50% hellspawns to work with?

Anyway, thanks again and thanks to everyone else who has posted great info on these phones. Part of me really wants to get a GalaxyNote II but another part of me is threatening suicide if I even think about wanting to program one!

Sprint GS3 CDMA. (SPH-L710) running android 4.1.1 and it is rooted and has CWM installed.

better cut 3.3 can not make a shortcut to the UI screens as only apps and widgets go there now since we are ICS and JB

what app to use?
or can i access the hiddenmenu another way?

i guess we sprint users dont need the shortcut as that menu for "USB Settings" is already there

##3424# lets me see that menu and i can easily select MTP, ADB and DB and all the rest.

so this isnt a problem anymore
thanks
