When I first got my Bolt the day it came out, MMS sending and receiving worked fine. It worked well for a few weeks, but one day, I couldn't send any more or receive any MMS messages without my phone saying there is some generic network failure. I've tried removing my battery and sim card and reseting my phone, using 3G and not, using wi-fi, etc. Nothing works!
I've seen others post about this, but removing the battery seems to have worked for them, but not in my case.
Is there an update coming? Should I take it into Verizon?
Is it because of the messaging App I am using? (Handcent)
I don't see why it would be, as when I use the stock messaging application, it still fails to send and receive.
What worked for me was clearing the cache and deleting old texts. In my case, one thread had over 1,000 messages! In most cases you really don't need over a couple hundred from one person, so setting your phone to delete older messages past that seems to help. PLUS if you receive facebook notifications, delete those every couple days because at least for me, those suckers really pile up. Give my solution a try and let me know how it goes.
