Make sure all of these settings are right then do a soft reset, power down and a battery pull, wait 10 seconds replace battery power on. If that doesnt work I would do a factory reset, then check the settings to make sure they match the above.
If that doesnt work I would call HTC and ask them to send you a new unit. Mine works fine now. I did do a factory reset the other day to get my picasa albums to sync. I didnt have a picasa account when i first set up the phone so it didnt sync. The factory reset did it though!
Thanks for all your input.
I checked all my settings against yours and they were indeed identical, so I went ahead and performed the factory reset (which was fairly painless since it automatically redownloaded all my apps after the reset and the Google syncing takes practically no time). As soon as the phone booted back up I went back into that settings menu and checked the settings to find they were blank as they were before. So I redid the settings again, soft reset, and this appears to have done the trick, with one exception.
As long as the message size is under a certain limit the message goes through, but my larger pictures (even after the messaging program says "compressing") don't make it through. I suspect this is a size limit on the recipient carrier's end (in this case AT&T) but I'd like to find a way to have my phone automatically resize my larger pics to get under this threshold so I can send any pic in my phone without worry. Even after resizing the message size for the larger of the pics I'm trying to send is 760KB which I suspect is much too large. The ones making it through are closer to 160-180KB.
this is really pissing me off. HTC sends me to T-mobile, T-mobile sends me to HTC. I can receive and send to T-mobile customers, but not able to send/receive to other providers. WHAT GIVES
yeah this really seems like some kind of picture size problem in sending these to other carrier phones. I wish htc or t-mob would release some kind of fix for this.
if it helps anyone, i downloaded handcent and it will automatically resize to a suitable mms size. ever since i haven't had one problem sending mms. i actually like it better than the standard messaging app too as it will let you set individual notification tones per each contact that you have a conversation with! which helps tremendously since i receive my work pages through my phone now, i need something annoying to wake me in the middle of the night. i know it's ridiculous and the standard app should just work, but this is a good solution in the mean time!
sooooo. it seems that my mms is fixed. except being able to recieve photos from Verizon ppl
also make sure you have the android web and not the regular or blackberry one. was told by the tech that they use different servers and that would be a reason mms would not send
<< i downloaded handcent and it will automatically resize to a suitable mms size
I actually have downloaded this and switched from ChompSMS. Just more customizations.
OK...now for the size limitation issues. More or less this is setup by ISP's. Below is a guide I used to use on my Iphone, before they added MMS support. You basically are using E-Mail to accomplish the same thing. I would try this as a test. IOW try sending a larger 700Kb Pix file to someone but instead of using the onboard messaging applet, use either ChompSMS or Handcent. Now try using the guide below to send via E-Mail. So using ATT for example, use the following syntax.
I know I have successfully sent larger than 300KB pictures to friends on ATT, back in my old Iphone days.
US Based Carriers:
Alltel = email@example.com
AT&T = firstname.lastname@example.org
Boost Mobile = email@example.com
Centennial Wireless = firstname.lastname@example.org (added by kcirrab-this is accurate for i have centennial)
Cingular (AT&T) = email@example.com
Einstein PCS = firstname.lastname@example.org
Nextel = email@example.com
Sprint = firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
T-Mobile = firstname.lastname@example.org
US Cellular = email@example.com
Verizon Wireless = firstname.lastname@example.org
Virgin Mobile = email@example.com
PS to my last. Yes, you would have to know what ISP your recipient uses. I basically added this as a form of contact on my phone, so when creating a message, these settings were in my contact phone
