    Works for ICS only, will not work on earlier versions of android.

    Please locate your carrier and ROM from the list below.

    Download the fix

    Copy to your sd card

    Flash from recovery - this can and should be flashed over an existing installation.

    How-To Guide

    Guide on how to get MMS working an ALL carriers.

    Step 1:

    Install MMSfix
    DL mmsfix.zip
    Load onto SD card
    Flash via recovery
    Boot to system


    Important notes This will add several APN lines to your device, and the different APNs will become active as you change your build.prop This deletes the telephony.db, allowing the system to rebuild it based on the new APNs


    Step 2:

    Edit build.prop

    Use a root file explorer (I use ES File Explorer)

    Make sure to mount system as writable, and that the File Browser is capable of root access.
    Navigate to /system/build.prop

    Open it with any onboard text editor (I used ES's text editor)

    There will be two lines you have to edit and two new lines you should add

    Find the following lines, they should be right next to one another


    ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=310120
    ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=Sprint


    Edit them to read


    ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=Your Carrier's Numeric Identifier* please see attached for list of numeric values

    ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=Your Carrier's Name* please see attached list for list of names


    Add the following two lines


    gsm.operator.alpha=Your Carrier's Name* please see attached list for list of names
    gsm.operator.numeric=Your Carrier's Numeric Identifier* please see attached for list of numeric values


    Save the changes and reboot your phone.

    Step 3:

    Test mms
    Make sure mms is working, if it is - You're done!
    If mms is not working, there is most likely an error in the entries to the build.prop


    Numeric and Alpha values

    Boost


    ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=50502
    ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=Boost MMS
    gsm.operator.alpha=Boost MMS
    gsm.operator.numeric=50502


    Cricket


    ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=31016
    ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=Cricket
    gsm.operator.alpha=Cricket
    gsm.operator.numeric=31016


    Metro PCS


    ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=310027
    ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=Cricket
    gsm.operator.alpha=Cricket
    gsm.operator.numeric=310027


    Sprint (do you really need this?)


    ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=310120
    ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=Sprint
    gsm.operator.alpha=Sprint
    gsm.operator.numeric=310120


    Verizon


    ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=310004
    ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=Verizon
    gsm.operator.alpha=Verizon
    gsm.operator.numeric=310004


    Virgin Mobile US


    ro.cdma.home.operator.numeric=311490
    ro.cdma.home.operator.alpha=Virgin Mobile US
    gsm.operator.alpha=Virgin Mobile US
    gsm.operator.numeric=311490


    Thank you for reading this guide.

    brooksyx's thread on MMS fix for virgin mobile.
    He address the issue differently, and it did not completely work for me.
    The issue is likely related to the APNs.
    But please read his thread and check out the zip file he includes, he goes about the setup differently
