    K so I am from Alaska and my carrier is ACS. I have been told that since my carrier is different is the reason why I can not send picture text or mms. To me it is not a real big deal but it would be nice to have that feature back. The main reason I want to see if there is a way to get this feature back is so I can root my wife's phone and put this magical rom on it. I think she would enjoy all the cool features she can have at her finger tips. Anybody willing to help me it would be greatly appreciated.

    You shouldn't need to send a text to root her phone. You can root the phone the same way you did yours (I'm assuming you are rooted). Maybe I'm not understanding what you are asking. If your carrier doesn't support picture messaging how do they support data required for an android phone? If you really wanted to send a picture say to your wife you could send it through gmail.

    I am rooted and my carrier does support picture/mms text , but when I started changing roms it all stopped. I can receive them I just can not send them. Rooting her phone is no problem but I also want to rom and the her phone w/ sourcery. Somebody explained it a while ago and I forgot the reason why. It has something to do with my phone thinking it is on verizon or something in that effect.

    Well I guess the possible reason is that the apn number change ended up making mms not able to send. I have no idea on how to change the apn number or even how to find the og apn. So it looks like I am sol.

    I am on ACS with a Motorola Milestone running CM6. I had the same problem not being able to send MMS. This is what I did with the help of Hubert to fix it. Disclaimer ;)- Be sure to backup before you do it incase it screws something up.

    Open Voice Dialer and say "Open APN's". You may have to talk nice to it and try a few times.

    Hit menu and hit reset to defaults.

    Hit menu and hit add new apn

    Enter the following:


    Name
    Acs

    APN
    00000

    Proxy
    <Not set>

    Port
    <Not set>

    Username
    <Not set>

    Password
    <Not set>

    Server
    <Not set>

    MMSC
    http://mmsc1.acsalaska.net/servlets/mms

    MMS proxy
    <Not set>

    MMS port
    80

    MCC
    310

    MNC
    004

    Authentication type
    <Not set>

    APN type
    mms

    You then have to save it. I forget but I think you hit menu and then save if it doesn't show save option at bottom.

    Reboot phone and MMS should work. If it doesn't try changing MNC to 120 instead of 004. I think 120 works on the desire and 004 on the milestone but not sure.

    Thats not suppose to be a link it is what you put under MMSC. Forum format just shows it as a link. I think I just edited it to show as text only.

    Incase someone else has the same problem we should add that Huberts ACS MMS patch has to be installed before this fix works. He also has one for GCI in Alaska.
