I want this to be a thread for us Verizon people using custom Roms. As of right now there are several Roms that have partial support. There is one ROM I know of that has full support. Havoc os. Sky dragon, liquid remix l, Luis ROM collection has partial support. Some Roms have no support.

If I'm not mistaken, the list is as follows:

OmniROM
Treskmod
HavocOS
AOSiP

I don't believe any of the 10/Q ROMs will work until the necessary blobs are pulled from the official OOS 10 release. Therefore, the above only applies to 9/Pie versions. I have not tested the 10 OOS port, so I can't confirm anything there.

For the ROMs with partial support (calling and texting), some users have found success with MMS by using certain messaging apps, such as QKSMS.

I didn't know aosip worked, I haven't tried Omni since I had to make a call to tier 2 support. So that call could have fixed it for me. I haven't heard of treskmod. Havoc isn't bad.

I think the issue is most time picture messages are extremely low quality when received, and video messages as well if they come in at all. I'm on an old Omni build and that's how it is for me.

I'm on pie with latest Omni and QKSMS. Running smoothly on verizon. I can make /receive calls, send /receive SMS/MMS and group texts work.

Funny as **** lol. ALL pie ROMs support Verizon. Its the APNs in network settings that control MMS,sms, etc. All ROMs use your current radio/modem to access your sim and apn to access the network. If you have signal, its not the rom. To make sure your apn info is correct, google the info or call your carrier

Yes and I've read comments in various threads where people would say they had tons of difficulties getting SMS and especially MMS to work properly even on stock OOS. Many recommendations suggested you must call verizon tech support and request a tier 2 specialist.

But I also noticed a couple of posts where people said they just simply inserted their sim and everything worked. I also read one comment where the guy said just go into your verizon account settings and choose CDMAless.

My experience? I decided I definitely wanted to iron out all the kinks before flashing a rom so I inserted my sim, did the initial setup and noticed MMS not working so I logged in to my verizon account and went through settings but there was no CDMAless option. Then I called verizon tech support and requested a,tier 2. Originally it was a,tier 1 who fielded my call and when I asked him he said : "I'm basically a tier 2" (which meant I don't know jack squat)

After an hour on the phone with the clown, he finally admitted he was going to have to connect me with a real tier 2. Five minutes later I was off the phone and my MMS was working.

This isn't entirely true. Issues have probably all been ironed out now but when the op6t came out even with apns correct mms did not work. As it stands some roms receive mms with terrible quality because image is compressed to less than a mb. There was talk of special compatibility things in oos that was missing in custom roms.

Hoping to resurrect this thread with updated information regarding Android 10 based ROMs. Can anybody report about verizon issues with Android 10 ROMs on the One Plus 6t? (The reason I'm asking is because I'm currently using Lineage OS 16 on mine. SMS works with the QKSMS app, but there are recent reports in the Fajita LOS 17.1 xda thread that Verizon problems have possibly gotten worse in version LOS 17.1)

Since nobody has responded to this thread, I'll update it myself. I was previously using Lineage 16 with my Oneplus 6T on Verizon's network and my texting app was QKSMS. This combination worked well. I finally decided to update to Lineage 17.1. Unfortunately, I was not able to get MMS working (neither sending or receiving) with this version on Lineage.

But I'm happy to report that I then tried Omnirom Q and it works great! I'm still using QKSMS. However, it should be noted that the stock messaging app that comes with Omnirom also works!

    Some Roms don't have the ability to send/receive mms ( pictures and group texts). Some Roms can't even receive texts or calls.
