    I had a previous issue where I was only getting 10mB/sec in speed tests; either MVNO or wireless. So I ended up doing a full wipe and reinstalled everything. Speeds are back to normal.

    But since then, I'm unable to send MMS messages. I've tried different SMS apps, tried different APN settings, etc. I've activated a new SIM card and did another full wipe, but this hasn't resolved anything.

    I have contacted Straight Talk, but they haven't been any help. "Wait two hours, restart your phone and you should be go". Uh, nope.

    Any ideas? Could it be an issue with the s/w of the phone?

    Thank you for the reply. But for some reason the phone will not save the APN settings. I can put in the required fields and save, but then when I enter all the information in the listing and save, the newly created APN which I created and saved previously is gone.

    I can find ways to make it save by changing a few small settings but none of them fix MMS.

    I have same issue. changed APN settings, apps, wipe cache...I'm thinking it started when I updated to 9.0.6, but also updated to 9.0.7 but persists. Thinking of going back to 9.0.5 but hate to lose data.
