Issue with MMS on IPhone 4S

For the group text problem, this is what worked for me: go to Settings>Messages>turn group text "OFF" then wait a while, then resend

I think the problem is that the iPhone 4S (damn you siri!!) is trying to send your group texts as "iMessage" texts to a group which everyone can respond to like a group chat, a feature on iphone 4.  This way, you only get charged one text everytime, instead of every text to each contact.  I think.  I found this out from searching for a solution for this on this page actually.  I did this and my messages were sent instead of the red "!" so it worked for me... but it charges you for a text to every contact in your group.

Maybe if you go to "MMS" under settings, it'll fix the mms problem?? my mms worked fine from the get-go...

Hope this helps someone...

I have troubles getting MMS to send...  Sometimes they go through, more often they fail.

The thing im starting to hate most is sprints answer to all problems is "theres an outage there". Give me a break. Use some other excuse like you network wasn't ready for the iPhone like you said it was. AT&T had the same issue. Sucks but I switched from ATt a few years ago and honestly I was actually happy but I kinda knew when they got the iPhone I was going to run into some of the same issues as with att but at least with sprint I can get a credit for an inconvenience fee. I was told this by support. I even got a claim number if I didn't get it. I know I don't want to wait to long before they get all the kinks worked out though. Keep up the hard work sprint I know you guys will get this fixed. Haven't failed me yet.

Don't waste your time. Been having the same issues along with outgoing calls being affected...basically its couple hundred dollar paper weight with a 90+ dollar bill every month. Completely regret switching from ATT

I live in Washington DC and can't send text messages (same problem as everyone else). iMessage works fine. Reset the network settings as suggested but this had no effect. Guess it's time to call Sprint and complain.

None of these suggestions has worked for me.  MMS has never worked once since I activated my iPhone 4S.  Cannot send group text messages or send or receive photos.

It was happening in los angeles and support told me there was an outage in my area, but now I'm in new york and the problem persists...

I also have this issue constantly.  I live in Hawaii.  Even after I get off a phone call, it's almost like the phone doesn't connect to the network immediately.  A short fix that i've found that works is... Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

After the phone shuts off, updates and reboots back on, dial ##UPDATE#, then Call.  Wait for the notification window and press Okay.  Then wait for the process to complete.  Should take about 20-30 seconds.  Then, after the phone shuts the antennae off and get's the signal back, reboot the phone.  Then see if it works. 

Kinda sad we have to do this... Sprint should have this issue resolved before even sending out the iPhones...

Hope this helps guys...
