Re: Picture Messaging Stopped Working on P20 Pro

Hi All,

I was wondering if @fch you found the solution to this thread?

I purchased a second hand Huawei p20 pro a month ago, I've been able to call, text, use data on various apps. The one thing that keeps resisting me is MMS. Specifically, receiving/sending picture messages, receiving/sending group text messages.

I previously owned a Sony Xperia XZs, MMS worked no problem.
My plan details:

  • 100 Minutes Canada-Wide Talk + Unlimited Incoming Minutes
  • 250 MB at 3G speed
  • Unlimited International Text


Besides this thread, I've tried troubleshooting with the following without success.

My APN settings:

 

APN 1.jpgAPN 2.jpg

Couple things I haven't tried: 1) different messaging app 2) factory reset. I'd rather avoid those if possible.

@TheoE 

Is your data turned on?  Does data work?

MMS texts won't use up data allotment but it needs to be turned on.  

 

Might want to change a couple lines of APN

APN type: default,mms,agps,supl,fota,hipri

 

MVNO type: GID

MVNO value: 4D4F

Re: Picture Messaging Stopped Working on P20 Pro

 @TheoE : Try

APN Type = default,mms,supl

MVNO Type = GID

MVNO Value = 4D

 

Also could try the last one = 4D4F

Re: Picture Messaging Stopped Working on P20 Pro

Thanks for the quick response @Dunkman & @z10user4 .

I confirm my data is turned on, I can do a google search. I haven't reached my total allotment either.
I tried both of your solutions but it does not seem to do the trick.

 

In doing so however, I rebooted the phone after each change and noticed that maybe 70% of the time, when I come back in the APN settings after reboot, it had reverted to the default APN i.e. it didn't have the "Public Mobile 2" APN selected but the default "Mobile Internet".

I wonder if that's the problem. Found this thread online, I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Re: Picture Messaging Stopped Working on P20 Pro

 @TheoE : Of course you need to save your work and select the APN.

Are you able to delete that other one? Or edit it instead of making a new one?

I tried that code on my Samsung and it didn't work. It might only be for LG but I don't know.

 

Another edit you could try:

MMS Proxy = mmscproxy.mobility.ca

MMS Port = 8799
