Default [Q] Can't download MMS messages?

Hi everyone. I recently purchased a Galaxy S2 on the Koodo network and applied the Jedi Mind Trick ROM. Now everything works great, except I can't download mms messages. It just reads the time, date, size and "downloading". I've tried checking and unchecking the Auto-retrieve box and tried on either my data connection or Wifi at home and I can't get it to work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Have you been able to download mms messages before on your T989? Do you have a data plan?

Put data on and if still not working try this : in messaging app hit menu, go setting and uncheck auto-retrieve... Works for me!

Yes, I have a data plan. I've only had it for a few weeks and I've never recieved an mms until a week ago and it didnt work. I tried the autoretrieve box on or off and it still didnt work. I read that it may have something to do with my VPN?

Are you connected to wifi?

If you are, just restart your phone and click download. Always works for me

I tried to download w/ wifi, but it didn't work. Restarting the phone also didn't work, Should I have some sort of value in the mms section of my VPN if its a Koodo phone?

Its your APN not VPN, they're different. You could be missing some fields in your APN.
