Thanks for the info. I may try that over the weekend. I appreciate it. I'm in Rochester, NY. Regardless of where I am in the country and the wifi network I'm connected to, this has never worked.
Then again, I only have to deal with this issue for another three months until I move to ACTUAL GOOGLE SOFTWARE WITHOUT VERIZON GARBAGE LAID ALL OVER IT. *deep breath*
Also on stock 4.2.2. I've lived in northern and central VA and had the issue in both locations. I have wiped the phone a couple of times since I've had it, although I haven't specifically tried sending a MMS without restoring from Google's cloud backup first. I appreciate the input although don't really feel like wiping my phone again... I think I'll just suffer through for the next three months.
TenaciousMV: weird coincidences - I have the same "release date" from VZW and I was born in Rochester! Small world.
My Prediction: Considering Verizon skipped two updates before 4.2.2, I believe that they will wait until Kit-Kat is released and then about 1 month later release the update. I agree with all that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is NOT a Nexus.....more like the Verizon Galaxy Noxious. I currently have 4 phones with Verizon and it is highly unlikely that I will continue with Verizon once my contract is up.
Verizon just doesn't seem to get the "Nexus" concept.
So it was just announced that the HTC was getting 4.3 in a week. Verizon, what is going on? This is incredibly frustrating and your customer supports' obvious canned responses only increase that frustration by seeming to assume that we are ******. They come off as belittling with their candy coded cheerfulness that only provides empty words with no solutions Give some statements with concrete terms and goals please.
