I brought my own phone and Freedom set me up with a sweet little no nonsense Home plan.

However the issue

if anybody has an issue with MMS sending, what worked for me was tweaking the APN settings. and making sure that (a) my message and media are under 1MB in total size. (selfie cam works great, main camera not so much), my (b) Mobile Data Connection is On, and purely for testing purposes my (c) Wifi is turned off.

You may have to duplicate the settings already populated by making new APN and MMS profiles.

Here's what worked for me - go to Settings and Network/wireless, and then Mobile&SIM.

Tap SIM settings.

Relevant settings (leaving anything else blank or set to default) are as follows:

SIM name is whatever you want.

Mobile Network LTE

Internet APN

Profile Name - whatever you want

APN internet.freedommobile.ca (case sensitive, be careful)

Type of Sign-in Automatic

IP Type - IPv4v6

Checkmark in the box to "Use this APN for LTE and yadda yadda".

Checkmark in Apply this profile.

Save.

MMS APN

Add an MMS APN using the cross/plus in the square.

Profile Name - whatever you want

APN - mms.freedommobile.ca (case sensitive be careful)

Type of sign-in - Automatic

IP type IPv4 (I'm going to try IPv4v6 afterwards)

Proxy Server - 74.115.197.70:8080 (IMHO the port number after the colon was pivotal. Specifying this in the Proxy Port field didn't help me in previous tries).

MMSC (URL) http://mms.freedommobile.ca

Checkmark box Apply this profile.

Save.

Eject any SD storage you have by going to your System/ Storage menu, and tapping the SD card. Tap REMOVE storage (don't hit Format - bad mojo).

Then eject your tray with the SD and SIM card.

Wait a few minutes.

Power down.

Pop in the tray with SD and SIM.

Power up.

And you should be up and running like me.

Note I've only confirmed sending, have to test receipt, but I am optimistic this'll be all fine.

Let us know how it goes.

Freaking Windows - always a difficult esoteric way to get things to 'work'. It's a FEATURE they say. It's BETTER they say. (grumbles)

It was actually a fun process to learn. I feel better knowing how this stuff all fits together a little more compared to when I first started in on the issue.
