    Data issue NOT related to existing 4G problem

    Hey everyone, I'm running gummy .9 but this issue is driving me so crazy I'm ready to try a different ROM.

    Ok, here is what I'm dealing with:

    Can't send or receive picture messages AT ALL. not on 3g, 4g, or even on wifi... I do however get data on 3g and wifi, I know this because I can access the internet through my browser, form apps, app store, etc.

    So the issue is SPECIFIC to sending and receiving data thru texts, SMS or MMS.

    I've tried reflashing, I've tried handcent and other texting apps, I'm at a complete loss. A friend of mine runs gummy .9 and he has no issues like this...

    Does anyone have any ideas??

    Also: restarting the phone SOMETIMES makes 3g or wifi able to send/receive, but its shoddy at best.

    I, too have experienced this loss of signal or tower hopping. If you used either the AOKP, Gummy, or the CM9 from Hashcode Ihave new for you! After 3 frustrating days and 28 recharges later and 3 walls to repair (from the head banging) Idiscovered something odd. It seems that as soon as you turn off wifi (connected or not) it starts to search for signal. Leave the wifi on, even with nothing connected, Ihave FULL bars for 4G LTE! Give it a try and see what you can find out. Its like turning off wifi turns off part of the code or hardware for the 4G modem. I've been running amazing for 2 days now without airplane mode being touched or the phone being restarted!

    That is odd.
    But my issue is wifi not allowing me to get MMS's. The issue persisted thru CM9, gummy, and AOKP. Wifi will give me data, but still not allow MMS service.

    Wouldn't leaving wifi on even if not connected kill the battery??

    I agree. I'm not happy either, but I'm very glad to at least keep data! Its so frustrating when it keeps wanting to connect to a GSM tower even though you're close to a verizon 4G tower! I had to reflash in order to get data to connect again. Once it came up, I declined the wifi option and left it alone after that! 3rd day still 4G LTE strong! Do you have unlimited data? That's why I am not worried about usage.
