    MMS driving me mad!

    Hi

    I've had my Ace since June and its a great little phone apart from I'm having so much trouble with MMS. Picture messages just sit in "sending" for eternity and never send. I sometimes have trouble receiving MMS as well.

    I've had a new handset and a new SIM and its not solved the problem. I see that some other people have posted this issue but there are no answers :-\

    I'm running Gingerbread, my firmware is utd according to Kies, my APN settings are correct and packet data always switched on.

    If I contact Orange they can send a configuration message which will push MMS through but it stops working again within 24 hours.

    Totally fed up as my OH is away in the forces and the only way I can get him pictures of the kids is via MMS as he doesn't have an internet connection.

    Orange reckon my messages are too large and tell me to take all photos using 0.3mpx but even that doesn't work. They've said that's the advice from Samsung themselves which I find hard to believe.

    Has anyone got any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Will give it a go.

    Is that something like Whatsapp that requires the message recipient to have it also? As my OH does not have a smartphone.

    Its ok - have worked it out. Weirdly, when sending a MMS with Handcent it goes through on my normal messaging too (haven't worked out how to turn that off yet). Yet the same message sent through normal messaging won't go.

    At least I've got a solution now. Thanks very much!

    Just discovered that I need wifi on and in range for my 3G to kick in when sending a MMS. If I try and send it just using the packet data it freezes, even using Handcent. Have heard something about the MMS on the Ace being incompatible with some UK networks so guess Orange is one of them. At least I have an app that will send the flipping things now :-)
