    Trying to send a picture with Handcent and the picture won't go. It just keeps trying. Any suggestions?

    Do you have your mobile data connection enabled? MMS won't send without it enabled. You can leave WiFi enabled if you want, but it won't send over a WiFi connection - you have to have mobile data enabled.

    I'm having the exact same issue. My mobile data is enabled. When I try to send a picture message using Handcent, the blue wheel that indicates it's trying to send something just animates indefinitely. However, if I use the stock Messaging app to send the same picture to the same recipient, it works just fine. I'm thinking it's a Handcent bug. I just sent them an email so I'll let you know if I hear anything back.

    I've been having the same issue with Handcent. Whenever I send a picture message, I just use the stock app.

    This was my solution and worked fine. I was trying to send from my network didn't know that wouldn't work. I think that's crazy not to be able to send via network. Anyone know why using the network won't work?

    I am not an expert in this area, but my interpretation of the techno-babble is that it requires both cellular and data connections to transmit/receive MMS, and cellular+WiFi doesn't meet some basic requirement. I'd be happy to hear from an expert that can put it in layman's terms.

    Just a small update: Handcent support replied to me to make sure I updated to the latest version of Handcent (4.7) which was released in the Play Store this weekend. I confirmed that I had updated and that I was still having the problem, so I'll wait to see what they come back with. I also sent them a link to this thread.

    I had the same issue and this is what fixed it. Change your date on your phone in the main settings to one week in the future. Send a picture from Handcent. If it works, go back to settings and fix the date then try and send another picture. This worked for me.

    Hmm, nice, I wonder why that worked. Anyway, I fixed mine by flashing AOKP 4.2.2 over stock and it is working beautifully now.

    I have an S4, and nothing I do makes the MMS work with Handcent 5.0.8. I had no problems prior to this latest update.

    If you read the reviews in the Google Play Store you'll see that this is a common complaint in the latest version.

    I've been using Handscent with my Galaxy Nexus with no problems. I did select all in the application settings for SMS and MMS. Nary a problem.

    I can confirm that I've set up Handsent correctly, with all of the things mentioned above. I've even split long mms messages into two sms messages but to no avail.

    Simply put; Handsent can NOT send our receive mms, including pictures and other files. It is ONLY an sms app.

    The best thing to do is forget about sms and mms altogether (it's a dead technology) and use services like "Line", which sends any message to anyone around the world, compete with attached images and it just works.

    I just got a pic from my daughter through text on hand sent. Occasionally I'll send her pic and it goes through just fine. I'm also on a flashed phone.
