Receiving mms on AT&T network

Good morning everyone. I was led here by some of pizzaboy's posts while googling for a solution for my problem. I went through a number of the posts on this forum and did not see a solution to my problem, although I know very little about phones and so apologize in advance if it already has been answered.

I had an old AT&T slider phone from Samsung which still works but the screen seems to have blown (so I've pretty much lost everything on that phone unless I can get it repaired). I was due for an upgrade, but apparently now AT&T only offers garbage phones unless you get a data plan.

In the meanwhile, I was given an unlocked LG Fathom as a holiday present. I was able to switch it to gsm mode and installed the media net settings cab (which I believe I got from a pizzaboy post). I also installed the PHM registry editor, if that will help.

I have two issues with the phone:
1) Every time someone tries to send me a picture text, I get a "message not found" notification from my number. I can send picture texts no problem.
2) I was able to get my voicemail by changing the voicemail number from *86 to my cellphone number, but even after deleting the messages, I continue to receive the notification on the home screen about having (nonexistant) voicemail messages. Additionally, after checking my voicemail, I seem to be getting a blank text message from a symbol that looks like an elongated plus sign/cross.

I've already wasted so much time trying to solve these issues; if anyone can help me it would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance. Happy holidays!

Re: Receiving mms on AT&T network

Glad to help,
I've done most of my work with converting the Fathom to GSM using a t-Mobile sim, but I'll try to help as best I can.
From what you're describing, you're not able to get messages for whatever reason. I am not sure if there are extra settings you need to get your Fathom to accept MMS, and my methods are still kinda sketchy as even I don't understand how half the stuff works.
As per the voicemail problems: are you saying that it tells you that you have either a number of voicemails of that there's an asterisk (*) sitting on the home screen? I haven't gotten far with that either, but there's always the option to just edit the registry and clear the number of voicemails.
The key is: HKCU\System\State\Messages\Voicemail\Unread
Set it to 0 and see what happens. You might also need to change the vmail key too

i'll look into the MMS issue, but in the mean time, check the AT&T TouchPro2 and other Windows Mobile forum sections here and XDA to see if you can find your issue.

Re: Receiving mms on AT&T network

Thanks a lot!

With regard to the mms, which is the main issue, I can send and receive texts, and I can send picture texts, but I just can't receive them. When someone tries to send me a picture text, I just get a text message from my cell number saying "message not found."

I have seen posts from other people with the same problem, but so far it doesn't seem like anybody has found any solution.

With regard to the voicemail, for example, I had a voicemail on friday, which i listened to and deleted. However, the home screen still says 1 new voicemail, and when I bring the phone back from standby, there is a 1 next to the lock symbol. Thanks! Your registry suggestion worked in clearing it, but it would be nice if it worked properly so that I wouldn't have to manually edit it each time. Pulling out the battery and putting it back in also seems to fix the problem (and I will check next time to see whether turning off the phone solves it).

Make sure you have the proper connection selected in your mms settings. Under the gsm servers tab, select your at&t mms server, And set the connect via box to what is suggested. Should work then.

Re: Receiving mms on AT&T network

I already have the AT&T network selected as my gms network, and the MEdia net settings selected as well. Is there something that I should change?
