MMS Does Not Send Nor Recieve On Sony 10 Xperia III & II With US T-Mobile & Red Pocket (Reseller)

I have tried multiple Sony 10 Phones. Both Sony 10 Xperia II & III with Sailfish OS 4.4.72.

I had tried multiple combination for MMS Settings and Data Settings.

I have even tried copying other Sony and US T-Mobile users setups that are successful in having MMS sending and receiving, Like this setting:

Connect name: T-mobile
Access point name: epc.tmobile.com
Protocol: Dual
Authentication: None
Proxy: 10.188.239.14
MMS message center address: http://10.188.239.145/mms/wapenc

Also on the same page, a 2nd user with successful MMS transmission:

MMS settings:
Epc.tmobile.com
Protocol: IPv6
Authentication: none
Clear out all proxy info. Leave blank
Same MMS message center you already used.

And on my Sony 10 Xperia II, follwed these suggested setup from here:

To get MMS working use the following:

**T-Mobile**

** MMS APN**
** Protocol: Dual (Important)**
** Proxy Address: 10.188.239.145**
** MMSC: http://10.188.239.145/mms/wapenc**
** Messages App → Settings → SMS Message Center Address: “+1206313004”,145**

** US Mobile**
** MMS APN**
** Protocol: Dual (Important)**
** Proxy Address: 10.188.239.145**
** MMSC: http://10.188.239.159/mms/wapenc**
** Messages App → Settings → SMS Message Center Address: “+1206313004”,145**

And for Red Pocket, too, I had tried these settings from the same page:

However, non of these setup works, even when I had to re-image Sony 10 Xperia II

Here are MMS logs from ‘mms-engine’:

If more information is needed, or logs, I am more than happy to work with one of SailfishOS engineers.

Thank you

I have tried Red Mobile SIM (T-Mobile US) on PinePhone Pro yesterday; and I am amazed how swift the PinePhone Pro imaged with “Developer Release 202210180430” Manjaro ARM, Plasma Moblie, was able to Send and Receive MMS messages (source pictures from the camera).

What is causing SailfishOS on my both Sony 10 Xperia II and III not to do so?

I don’t think it is a carrier issues as much it is Sailfish OS.

I saw something about message being too large.

I set my message size to “extra large”. Perhaps that’s something that can help you?

HTTP status 7 suggests to me the account needs to be reprovisioned as it’s missing services. Let’s check the contexts first though. Can you run by terninal curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rilmodem/ofono/master/test/list-contexts --output list-contexts-ofono.py then python3 list-contexts.py and post the output?
