Hey all,

I've been having this issue with my phone not sending or downloading picture messages. Well, I am using Wind Mobile for demo, but it should work for others (prove me correct, by clicking the "thanks" button):


1. Add internet.windmobile.ca as APN #1

2 APN #2:
Name: Wind CA MMS
APN: mms.windmobile.ca
MMSC: http://mms.windmobile.ca
MMS Proxy: 74.115.197.70
MMS Port: 8080
MCC: 302
MNC: 490
Type: LEAVE THIS BLANK!



The problem with mine was the type was set to mms.

When you're done, make sure that this APN (because my phone only lets me select 1 APN, so select internet when you need internet, and mms when you need mms) is selected when you need to download/send MMS (and maybe a quick airplane mode network refresh). This ain't the prettiest way, but it gets the job done!


Hope this help.

Cheers.

This is actually pretty useful because in some ROMs the APNs are written wrong. For example, on my parent's phone I have to manually edit Straight Talk's T-Mobile APN.
