Fix for Samsung Focus SIM/MMS trouble

Should you be experiencing issues with MMS on your Samsung Focus then this small fix may be just what you need. WPCentral Reader Seth has located a quick solution for his MMS problem, which occurred post-updating to Mango RTM (leaked ROM). He reported that the fix does indeed work and was tested on a Samsung Focus attached to AT&T.

Here are the steps one must take to greatness:

  1. Enter 40*047#3 in the diagnosis app.
  2. AutoSimSetting will be reported as now enabled, restart your device.

We're not currently aware of this fix working on the Omnia 7 handset or with unlocked devices. Let us know in the comments what outcome you get should you perform the above.

Source: XDA Developer Forum (post), thanks Seth for the tip!

Fix for Samsung Focus SIM/MMS trouble

8 Comments

This fix does NOT work at all for unlocked phones. UGH! I LOVE my Samsung Focus, but I cannot tell you the fustration I have over trying to get MMS to work on my phone. I am currently with West Central Wireless (I would got with ATT, but they have terrible coverage where I live) so I had to unlock it to get on to West Central Wireless. But now I can't get MMS, and I rescue dogs, so it's really important that I have it in order to send pics of the animals to other rescues. I don't know what to do. I love this phone and I don't want to give it up, but I'm starting to believe I don't have a choice...! Any suggestions??? I've been trying to get this fixed since last May! Any help would be appreciated.

Go to the "Samsung Zone" section of the marketplace and download "Network Profile". Go into the app and switch your network. Mine was T-Mobile. After you do this then go into the phone app, dial ##634# and then enter the number shown on this fix. Tap OK and it should work.

I have an unlocked Samsung Focus (Mango) on T-mobile and downloaded "Network Profile". Changed to "T-Mobile USA" and I was able to receive picture messages.

Since Friday Oct 28 2011 I am not able to send pictures via mms. 1st error was "can't send media content"2nd error was "can't send" I have called ATT - they did some basic troubleshooting - power off the phone 2 times, clear my history, last thing they wanted me to do was remove the person I had tried to send the mms from my phone and manually type in that persons phone # to send a mms. (I still not sure if that is a fix.) Receive mms - yesInternet - yes Send to myself as a fowrard mms - yes Just cannot send mms to anyone in phone list Tried the steps above in this article - that didn't fix. Samsung Focus with Mango

This fix also did not work for me.  I have an unlocked Samsung Focus using straight talk.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.

I dont see teh "samsung zone" in my market place??? , my phone is also unlocked and i am using it on straight talk.. regular texting and phone calls work wonderful.. just cant get pic messages or send them =(
