I did the OTA update yesterday and now it seems like I am unable to send SMS and especially MMS while connected to my Network Extender at home.
It seems to take forever for a text to send and even longer, of every for a group or picture message to send.
Anyone else? Any suggestions?

Re: Trouble with Network Extender and SMS/MMS

MMS messaging always uses mobile data to send, so it may be that it's not getting a good 3G connection (likely, if you gave an extender at your location.) Regular SMS should be fine, though - that just uses normal carrier CDMA.

I understand, though, that the Verizon Messages+ app on the Turbo can use WiFi for MMS, so, if you're not already using it, maybe try switching to that app and see if it works? (Settings / More... / Default SMS app)

Thanks for the thoughts. I'm now finding if I turn of WiFi messages come through right away. It's like the 3G connection turns off when connected to WiFi
