[Help] Samsung Galaxy Nexus Can't Send/Receive MMS

Anybody else having this problem? I've tried sending and receiving MMS' on 3G, 4G LTE, WiFi, blue signal bars, gray signal bars on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus and.... NOTHING!

Looks like I'm not the only one having this problem. Just happened to come across someone else posting about the exact same thing on another site: »answers.yahoo.com/question/index···4AAjMFxY

A Google search shows this to be a pretty pervasive issue: »www.google.com/#hl=en&safe=off&t···&bih=787

Help!

Are you running a custom ROM? Maybe it's time to try a different one. Which one are you running by the way?

I had the same MMS problem with a GSM GNex and it was the APN settings. I transposed a lower case letter for a capital letter and MMS wouldn't work. Did you check you settings against the default settings?

Yes I did. Handcent SMS seems to be the only way I can "force" an MMS to go through or to receive one, and that doesn't even work 100% of the time.

Yes I am. It's a stock JB ROM by Bugless Beast.

Yeah I checked them. Haven't done anything with them.

What is your APN set to and are you in an LTE area or no?

Yes I am in an LTE area.

APN is set to:
Name: EHRPD - Verizon Internet
APN: VZWINTERNET
MCC: 311
MNCL 480
APN type: default,dun
APN protocol: IPv4/IPv6
Bearer: eHRPD

Anything else I didn't list is because it's set to what seems to be the default setting of "Not set".

I have a Nexus and am on Verizon and have had trouble sending photos. It just hangs on "sending".

Same issue that I've been having. And so has so many others it seems.

Anybody discover a real fix for this?

How are you getting that specific text? I grabbed "APN shortcut" from the play store and mine is marked as "LTE - Verizon Internet".

There's one called "EHRPD - Verizon Internet" which it sounds like you're on. Perhaps that's the problem?

What do you mean? Only way I seem to be able to get MMS' is when I open up Handcent and click download, and that kind of "forces" it to be received, but that doesn't work all the time; doesn't seem to automatically come through with the stock Messaging app. When I try to send MMS', it just keep getting stuck on "Sending", and doesn't go through. If I open up Handcent and try to send an MMS, it's not 100% that it will go through, but it does work sometimes.

I mean my APN is set to "LTE - Verizon Internet" which is different than yours - and my MMS works perfectly fine both incoming and outgoing. Both on wifi and off wifi.

How are you getting that output? I can generate the same here. I didn't see anything with that level of detail. Are you using an app or is that via a menu somewhere or what?

hmm that's what I'm using as well. I didn't realize you could tap on them.

Anyway, it looks like mine is now on "EHRPD - Verizon Internet" now, so it must flip between the two based on whether I have 4G coverage or not.

My picture from 12/7 still says sending!

I have not had time to call Verizon and stay on the phone with them for any length of time to see if they could help.

It would be best to post the question here »forum.xda-developers.com/showthr···=1925708 as the rom dev's might have seen it before. sms or mms issues usually fall back to rom issues.
Of course I'm partial but I think the smoothest best supported rom is JBSourcery. »rootzwiki.com/topic/27553-romjbs···new-421/

Try a different rom. I'm running a rom based on latest version of JB and myself and many others on the same rom do not have this issue.

Yeah. I'm thinking to jump from Bugless Beast's 4.1.1 JB ROM that I'm currently running, to CyanogenMod's 10.1 ROM for 4.2.1 JB.

Well you've already got my recommendation from a prior post. Good luck.
