so from what I've read in this forum (yes, I've tried), I need to do something to my APN settings to get my MMS to work. My questions are:
1) How do I change the settings? I only have one (Telus SP) and it's locked. I can't change anything whatsoever
2) What are the right settings supposed to be?
3) Does the phone need to be "rooted"? I don't even really know what that entails, I just know you need to root a phone before you can do some things.
I can't receive MMS messages from friends. Vodafone UK have sent me three seperate PDF files by emails, giving me instructions how to set up MMS, WAP and WEB. They are suggesting that I set up 3 seperate APN profiles - is this right? I already have an APN profile called "Vodafone PAYMONTHLY" where I have data set up. Can I just add MMS settings in that one? Can someone also confirm their MMS settings on Vodafone UK?
I?ve had my HTC desire for about 3 weeks until now not had any problems, but now i can?t seem to make or receive calls or text. When I try to ring someone it just beeps and ends the call. When someone rings me it says unavailable. Nor can i send or receive texts. I?ve spoken to my network operator and everything is fine on their end and also got a new sim card from them just in case it was a sim card fault. Anyone know what the problem could be?
I'd like to know if it is possible to get an app or change the settings so that message contents won't be shown on the top of the screen?I've managed to get Handcent which allows me to stop the contents to be shown at the bottom of the screen
Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, I did a search but found nothing relevant. How do I change a primary contact detail? For instance, my friend has just left his job and his old work email is set at the primary email on my contacts, so I want to change that to his hotmail email yet when I go to edit, there's no way of removing the old email and setting the hotmail as primary.
I'm considering getting a HTC Desire to replace my Nokia N95. One of the features I use a lot is the Nokia PC Suite's ability to send/receive SMS using my PC. I sometimes send upwards of 1000 SMS's per month, and can't see myself enjoying any phone which doesn't have this software.
Is there an app to send and receive (in sms both ways)? All the phone numbers that I text (or texted to me) appear on our family bill. Since there seems to be no way to stop that; I am trying to find a simple sms to sms app.. a paid one without ads that is as simple to use as 'regular' texting. I also assume a paid app will bypass the fear of me being a spammer since they will have all my information.
For some reason I cannot send or receive MMS on my Hero. I can surf the web and send regular text msgs without a problem but no dice with MMS. What gives? Anyone have MMS working on At&t on their hero?
My GF's daugther just got an 7" OMY Q88 tablet with 8Gb flash, 512Mb Ram, 1GHz A13 Cpu, running (Android version 4.0.4 - Baseband 1.5 - kernel 3.0.8+ yishion@yishion #95 - build number nuclear_evb-eng_AL_4.0.4), from her mother and I'm trying to see if I can get it to work with SMS and phone calls.
So I'm using Globe tattoo usb stick E1552 & E153(rebranded Huawei) attached by USB dongle. Both work fine for internet using PPPwidget and sending SMS through GO SMS Pro, but is unable to receive SMS or make phone calls(I tried most dialers from Play store).
*-Thoose things work perfect on a pc, so what is Android missing? She needs this tablet when starting in college this comming june, and there is no public Wi-Fi on campus.Here in the Philippines, things we take for granted in other countries, are scares to be found.
There are plenty of apps for windows and pc but eventhough I have used 5 days and looked though hundreds of google pages using different search criterias, I have not been able to find a solution for Android.I would not be able to send SMS. URLs.....The last one is alien language to me as I'm not an programmer.
I even installed the JB Messaging app from XDA - but sadly it had no effect.What I need is offline SMS, there are plenty of apps for online SMS but her money is not enough for constant internet.
I'm on Sprint and I don't understand why I can't send or receive pictures through a text. I don't get any error message but the people I send a picture to never receive it and when someone sends me a picture in a text I never receive it. I cut the resolution on my phone down to 1mb but it didn't help
I just got my htc hero today, and i am not able to receive pictures or send them. When i pick a picture and i click "share" it only gives me options to put it on facebook or myspace and such. Do i need to download a app for it? i have unlimited text and picture messaging.
A friend tried to send me a message with a voice attached the other day. I did not receive it. I contacted Optus in Australia and they went through my MMS settings with me. The strange thing was I could send an MMS, but not receive them. After much fiddling around I found that a title had to be put into the message or a message typed. I then received the MMS and was able to download the attached file. Has anyone else had this problem with the Galaxy or do you think it may be an Optus problem?
I wanted to send an apk to my friend but it says something like not supported filetype and therefore it's automatically rejected and it is not sent in consequence. It's not a problem with my phone but with Samsung i9000 dual core 1.2GHz with mali400. IMO we could fix it by adding a line but I'm not sure which file to edit. Weirdly he's able to send apk's. I can send apk files to everyone but him. His Rom is resurrection remix v4.0.7
Any way to get at the Send and Receive Text functions of a phone? In other words, is there a way to transmit a text such that another phone, within range and using my app, could receive that text? Proposed app: The_Haiti_Phone: All cell towers and land lines are down. I would create a text msg to my wife's phone and my special app would send it. All cell phones in range would pass it on. When the packet's receiver's ID matches a cell phone's ID, the msg displays to the user. In summary, in a catastrophe, all cell phones with my app act as cell towers.
Since I picked up my Captivate yesterday, I have been unable to send sms messages. I noticed under Messaging/Settings that the "Message Center" is not set. Could that be the problem? Could some of you take a look at what your "Message Center" is set to?
i was wondering if there are any softwares now to connect the phone to the computer and send and receive sms through it... Basically my brother is considering buying an Android but the fact that there isnt a software to connect to the computer and send and receive sms is something that pulls him back..
I am wanting to send a http request to Google.com from my mobile application but am unsure how to get about asembling the request. Anothing problem that i might in counter is how to handle the information that is returned. For example, i want to send a request for "local resturnats" to Google and have the results returned and then displayed to the user in a ListView. Am i going about this the right way? Is there an API that i could use (GoogleMaps or AJAX Search)?
Question about Stock Mail (not gmail) app. First - I am rooted running Fresh 1.1 Rom. I have noticed that my mail client does not send/receive mail on it's set schedule. Sometimes it will check if the phone is awake, but otherwise it could sit in my pocket sleeping for three hours and never once send/receive.
