    I am unable to send MMS (specifically picture messages) on my Moto Droid. I have had the phone for around 30 days now, and as far as I know I have never been able to since I got it (cant remember though).
    I was able to send them on my previous LG enV2 - and I have an unlimited txting plan.

    I believe I have only tried Verizon to Verizon (and with people who I have sent MSS to before), but I dont think it would make a difference with AT&T or the rest..

    I have tried both Handcent and the stock Messaging app, both with zero success. The message just keeps "sending" (the little spiral just keeps on turning).

    Any ideas? I imagine I have a setting messed up and a wrong check box clicked, but I am at a loss as to where to start..

    i've had no problems with MMS. does the app compress any picture you attach? have you tried smaller pics? are you sending to a mobile phone?

    Yup...asks me if I want to resize the photo (to which I say yes), and it is going to a mobile phone.

    I was having the same problem but the pics were in fact going through. Just said sending without ever indicating it was finished. However it is temporary, at least for me.

    I Tried the suggestion from Gears, but ir didn't help. I changed all my contacts within gmail to not have the parentheses and still no dice. I did have juice defender installed but the Mms disable was off all the time. But Imade sure everything was enabled, wifi, mms & apn. And then uninstalled but still nothing. Amy ideas what the problem could be?
    Thanks in advance.

    I read the solution at the top of the page, it seems odd that buying a battery saving app would help any, but hey if it works, it works.

    I've seen one or two other threads like this. But unfortunately I don't know of a solution other then the one at the top of the thread, which I hope people have tried. My best guess is you have an app that's causing an issue with your MMS. I would try a factory data reset if you haven't already. If that doesn't work then a hard factory data reset may be in order. Then you could start adding your apps in one at a time to see what is causing the problem.

    I've never had an issue with an MMS and just from the response on this thread which started in January I don't think this is an issue affecting most people. I think your issues are real - but it's something in your Droid causing a problem.

    So try the solutions given and let me know if anything works. Good luck.

    I finally got an MMS to go through yesterday. Don't know if this made a difference but after reading about the () problem in old posts, I manually entered the number and it succeeded. I had tried to send an identical message a few minutes earlier and failed multiple times but this was using my contact list. YMMV.
