Textra and APN Setting for MMS


Monday 01st of July 2013 / androidforums.com
I know this is probably a dupe thread, but I need help.I recently ditched GoSMS in favor of Textra because I could no longer tolerate the bloat. Now I cannot sent MMS messages, but can still receive them. I need to know how to access the APN settings and what the actual APN settings are so I can use Textra to handle sending of MMS rather than the stock app.I am running completely stock and unrooted. And OBV on Virgin Mobile USA...Any help will be appreciated muchly!

Textra keeps cutting off 3g.


Tuesday 13th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hey guys, having some issues with textra. Basically I was sent some photos by mms today through textra and I received them perfectly fine but soon after I kept getting messages saying mms failed check APN settings. At the same time it would drop my data connection and having to turn it off and on again to get it to work. But then then message would pop up again from textra saying the same message and dropping my 3g. I had to uninstall the app and reinstall it to get past this issue. If you use textra then you will know it copies your settings on Setup to make it work and I have checked all my settings anyway and is fine. Has anyone ever experienced this and found a fix or anything?? Please let me Know. my shiney new S4

Textra MMS settings


Thursday 05th of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hey all. I've had the s4 for about 2 months and it had been a great phone. The last couple days though the messaging app has been horrendously slow so i downloaded textra and it has been great except for one thing. Whenever I get a text I get a notification telling me to check my mms settings. Group messaging also doesn't work when I am on wifi. I'm assuming because the app doesn't know to switch to mobile data but who knows. I checked use mobile data for mms but it doesn't matter what I do I still get the warning. Any suggestions what to do? Posted via Android Central App

MMS's won't send when wifi connected (GPE s4... ATT S4 works fine)


Monday 09th of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Looking for some help and ideas here.. I have a GPE S4 on the AT&T network.. I also have a spare GS4 (ATT branded). GPE S4 - running Android 4.3 stock - MMS while connected to wifi will not send. turn off Wifi and they send fineATT S4 - running Android 4.2.2 MF3 stock - MMS while connected to wifi send fine. I have checked and matched the GPE S4 to use the identical APN settings as the ATT S4. I have tried in the stock messaging app. I prefer textra and tried textra on both, setting "Activate Mobile Data when sending/receiving an MMS" is checked on both devices and it doesn't make the GPE get an MMS while connected to wifi. I have scoured the internet and there are TONS of threads about this very same topic on many carriers... a lot point to APN settings. I have validated that APN is proper and the fact that it works while NOT on Wifi proves this. The ONLY thing I can think of is 4.3 or stock android doesn't make the MMS app(s) use the mobile data and tries to send it out the wifi connection which will not work. Anyone with GPE on ATT network able to test this for me?

Verizon Textra MMS Settings?


Friday 11th of October 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
When I receive an animated GIF, it does not play. I use Textra but cannot seem to get it to work. I have MMS for group chats turned on. MMS settings has "Activate Mobile Data" turned on. The manual APN config is not on, but if I check it, the mmsc is and the proxy and proxy port are both blank. Has anyone had this issue yet or does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it? The APN configs I can find for Verizon online do not have a proxy or proxy port listed either.

Textra Issue


Thursday 02nd of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
So....I've been a happy user of Textra on the Nexus 5 since the day I got my phone about a month ago. Starting last night, one of my apps started warning me that it was hogging resources. Thought that maybe the app was just being over sensitive or that it just reported the resource hogging because I had sent a MMS just a few minutes before that. Like normal, I charged my phone up to 100% before going to bed. Prior to last night, my phone had never lost more than 5% while I sleep 6-10 hours. Today though, I wake up to see I have just over 60% charge and the culprit is....TEXTRA (which had only been used for ONE incoming message while I was sleeping). According to the system settings, Textra ate up 57% of that battery loss with a CPU total of 56m 34s. Freakin' ridiculous. Hoping to find a solution for this ASAP but I may just reinstall here before heading to work.

ZTE Majesty MMS problems


Saturday 08th of March 2014 / androidforums.com
Hello. I recently bought a ZTE Majesty, it's my first smart phone. I'm on Straight Talk (CDMA-V, verizon towers). With the stock messaging app, when friends are doing Group MMS (a mixture of iphone/droid users) I receive each message individually from the participants rather than as a group MMS. I couldn't find any settings to enable this type of thing, so I downloaded Textra. What a nice app, super light-weight, fast, and aesthetically pleasing. However, this will not even receive the individual MMS messages as I'm testing it. For the life of me, I cannot find the APN settings in this phone...so the MMS settings in Textra are all but useless.Does anyone have any experience for group MMS on this phone? (or the Savvy, as it's the same exact thing more or less)

Textra is breaking up my texts!


Wednesday 19th of March 2014 / androidforums.com
I have an S4 on T-Mobile and have used GoSMS since I had an S2. But recently not only has GoSMS started bombarding me with bloat but it also randomly does not send or receive texts properly. So I've given up using it and have started using Textra.I want an SMS app that does the following - allows me to have LED and screen-on repeat notifications, display options and some kind of visual indication that a text has been sent successfully (because GoSMS made me paranoid). I like Textra A LOT, except for two minor problems.... My girlfriend has an iPhone and I've noticed that if she sends me a text with more than 65 characters (I've counted them ) Textra will break up her texts into multiples. This happened with GoSMS sometimes but only after I think 160 character. Also although it would happen very occasionally using GoSMS, using Textra I get a lot of duplicate messages from her when she texts.Anyone know what I could do? Would changing the APN settings help? That's the only thing on Google searching the topic that seems like it could be relevant but that's for MMS messages only right?PS

droid dna third party sms apps will not send mms


Wednesday 02nd of April 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a droid dna but it is not verizon. I am with a local carrier called chat mobility that services Southwest Iowa. They did however in the last year partner with Verizon to use their towers nationwide for a 4g network. I have tried Go sms, Textra, Handcent, Chomp, hangouts, and a few other sms apps. Only Go sms will send a mms message. I used Go sms for 9 months but I want to switch to another sms app. I have never been able to get any other app to work on this phone past standard sms use. When you try to send a pic the wheel just spins and spins and spins. Textra actually goes so far as to give me an error message within 3 seconds that says "cannot configure mms settings automatically" "click here to set mms setting". Data is turned on and the stock messaging app works great. The stock app will send a pic in less than 5 seconds. So I called my carrier 3 times and each time when I ask for the apn settings they play dumb. They don't know what I am referring to and one time the tech told me that if it is a third party app they cannot help me and I should uninst
