Like so many others, I signed up for 5GB BYOP Pulse plan (with 5GB bonus). I'm using an unlocked Sprint Samsung Galaxy S7. Calls, LTE data, and SMS all work fine fine.
However, I can't send or receive MMS. When I send, it tries, then about a minute later the phone notifies me indicating the send failed.
I can't receive MMS, I click an MMS sent to me, and the download fails.
Also I'm not getting the premium voicemail-to-text MMS messages that I should be getting (I added the $5 value pack).
Lastly, when I do get voicemail, I receive a text message from "18" with the message: "Voice Msg notice Total: 1 (0 urg.)". My message waiting light does not light up, and I don't get any icons in my notification bar.
Appreciate any help, I can't get through to customer support via phone, live chat or FB Messenger.
This thread looked promising, I wonder if it would work for me:
Yep, confirmed that settings look good:
Just tested again, still can't send MMS. Same problem, I send the pic, and after a minute, get a send failed error message.
Any chance that other thread I linked in my original post is relevant to my situation? I did sign up for the Value Pack...
Hi amanda, thanks for your response.
I am using a non fido phone which is a samsung note 5. It was used on Verizon network before. I have been using this phone for two years and MMS has been working fine. lately the phone become very slow. I searched up internet then did factory reset. after the factory reset, both data and MMS stoped working. I called Fido customer service and only the data was fixed. the MMS still could not get fixed after being transferred to so many different agents. before the factory reset, whenever someone left me a voice mail, the voice mail was always pushed to text message as a already downloaded voice file and i was able to listen to the voice file by press it. but now, i can not receive the voice mail file and picture from the message anymore.
i have data activated already. I don't have a problem with voice mail. i can still check my voice mail using tranditional way-call my own # and follow the step to listen.
please help. I need to receive picture message and voice message through message. this is very important to me. thank you very much.
Thank you for the details!
We do not support non-Fido devices and it can sometime cause an issue. However, your device does seem compatible with our network since your APN settings are perfectly fine.
At this point, there can either be an issue with the network or the device itself.
If possible, are you able to test your SIM card in a different phone and see if picture messages work?
thanks for reply. Yes, i tried using my sim card in other phone and it was no problem in receiving and sending picture message. in fact, my phone was prefectly fine with picture and vm download before 5:00pm april 12. just because it was slow so i decided to do a factory reset. only after the factory reset, i have this problem of down loading picture message and voice mail file.
I am sure it is some setting with my phone(samsung note5)
