Re: &lt;Boost Mobile MMS Settings&gt; &lt;Rom List&gt; Updated 2/11/13

Shag, first off, thanks for taking the time to help all of us out. Great work man.

Just tossing a question out there. I'm running an ICS ROM (strike) and I've changed all of my apn settings and rebooted but I still can't send mms. I can receive though.

The tutorial says you don't have to copy the inverted mms with strike but I tried it anyways to see if that would work. No dice. It removes messaging from the app list causing you to have to reinstall it.

If anyone else has ran into this issue please let me know. In advance I appreciate the help.

Double check your settings (delete all * symbols in the APN). Save apn after changing. Make sure apn is enabled. Reboot.

No, the messaging service doesn't have that option. Attached are my screenshots. Hopefully I'm doing something wrong.

Strike you're not supposed to but I tried both ways.

It will not change anything by replacing the mms.apk in strike with the one listed because the one listed was pulled from strike.
If i ever get strike to load ill test it again.

You don't have to install Strike.

I'm currently using strike and can confirm everything working after following your instructions.

The stock application included with Strike works after changing the apn settings to your recommended configuration - with the exception of receiving file attachments.

To get file attachments working, one needs to uninstall the stock mms package and install the application you included as a download.

Everything works flawless.

An alternative to getting everything to work is to use SMS Pro, which I don't recommend because it uses too much memory.

Hi Shags,

After playing with ap2sd, I ran into issues that forced me to reinstall my ROM. However, rather than install my tried and true Strike ROM, I decided to experiment with a Jelly Bean ROM; specifically, I installed MazWoz's 4.2.1 B4.

Great ROM!

However, I'm now back to square one with the MMS problem. I'm able to send and receive text messages, but not MMS file attachments.

I was able to change the APN settings to the right ones, but I'm still SOL. Unfortunately, the working MMS.apk from the ICS Strike ROM does not work with Jellybean, nor the Jellybean MMS.apk's you included in your working JellyBean ROM list.

Do you have links to other jellybean MMS.apk's that may work with Boost mobile? I'll gladly test them and report them back to you.

Also, I know how to use hex editors, so if you can help me with what to look for, I may make the necessary changes to the stock mms application.

Thank you

MMS SETTINGS

Instructions for mms:

  • Open the app drawer and find the app called voice dialer and click on it.
  • Speak the words "Open Apn" into the mic on your phone.
  • A box will pop up that reads Open APNs, click ok.
  • Click on the APN called Sprint, your default APN will open.
  • Click on the down arrow to the right of each field to edit as follows:
  • Name = Sprint
  • APN = Boost_Mobile
  • Proxy =
  • Port =
  • Username =
  • Password =
  • Server =
  • MMSC = http://mm.myboostmobile.com
  • MMS proxy =
  • MMS port =
  • MCC = 310
  • MNC = 120
  • Authentication type= PAP or CHAP
  • APN type =
  • APN protocol = IPv4

These settings need to be exact if there is nothing after the = then clear that field of any text or *. TOTALLY BLANK
After you complete the above hit the soft menu button on your phone and hit save.
Now you should be back to a list with one APN called Sprint and under that Boost_Mobile. Make sure the circle next to it has a blue dot in it, if not click on it. Hit the return softkey on you phone, you should now be back to your rom.
END OF THIS STEP

Next Step:


  • open the mms app that is included in this rom.
  • Hit the menu softkey on your phone.
  • Hit settings
  • Scroll down to "Custom User-Agent" and hit the down arrow to the right.
  • Select "BlackBerry 8800" in the list
  • Reboot Phone (Don't Skip this) and send yourself a MMS message. (you may have to send one wait then send another and it should work).

THE END
