I just recently got the Xperia Z2 and tried sending/receiving MMS picture messages with WiFi on at home and found that it will not go through until I turn it off. I'm currently in the States using the T-Mobile US network. As soon as I turn off WiFi, or if I'm out and about using my phone without WiFi on, I find that the MMS picture messages go through like normal, both receiving and sending. Is anyone having any issues with this that's on the US T-Mobile network, and are there any fixes to this? I haven't contacted T-Mobile yet but I've read a few other forums and it looks like other Android users are running into the same problem. I just haven't seen it brought up on the Xperia phones.
Here's some information on my phone:
- Stock D6503 (Taiwan version that came with the noise canceling headphones & magnetic charging dock)
- 4.4.2 Kit Kat
- Version 17.1.A.2.69
- Has not been rooted, bootloader has not been touched
- Using the stock Messaging app that was installed (Although I also tried downloading the SMS Messaging (AOSP) by Sylvain Galand in the Play Store and it didn't work either)
- MMS auto download & MMS when roaming are both on under the Messaging settings
APN settings were downloaded under the Wireless & networks > Internet Settings > T-Mobile US

Some other users are saying that their phones will send MMS messages if they enable WiFi calling, but I have not seen that feature included in our Xperia Z2's.
I also read this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2724390 and this http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-1979 with no solution so far.
I guess I could always just turn off the WiFi when sending or receiving MMS messages but I just wanted to ask the community if there was a fix for this.
I generally don't post questions in these forums as I try to dig around as much as possible before posting. Any help or tips would greatly be apprecaited!
