Hey so i had the same problem, with T-Mobile, and all they did was reset the signal on my phone and had me reboot my phone, and my messages have been working ever since! Maybe have Verizon do that.

I went into the phone's WiFi advanced settings and turned "smart network switching" on and left it on "normal" mode and it worked fine after that.

Go to Settings > Connections > Data usage, turn mobile data on, click Data Saver, make sure it's turned on, click on "Allow app while data saver on " and make sure messages is turned on

  I also took the opportunity to turn a bunch of things off.

 

Hope this helps...it fixed it for me.

Same problem here. I thought it was me but I see now that it is not. The only thing it will send MMS messages on is the app it came with. I thought this was supposed to be a great phone. Well if I cannot use the messaging app I want to it is not great.

Which app is it that you used?  There are many different Carrier Service apps, exactly which one did you use?

Still no fix?

Our company is thinking of switching to Samsung (Andriod) as their staff phones, mine is the trial piece....

A brand new S8 and everytime I need to send MMS I have to turn data on = costly :-(  and not office friendly.

 

Booking marking this thread in the hope Samsung gets this issue repaired.
