Here's the picture.... I can use wifi to connect to internet... I can use mobile data to connect to internet. All apn settings are correct and I verified with a 2hr long phone call to koodo support.
I can send and receive messages. But if I get messages with an mms pic, I can't dl them. I have turned off wifi to force 4g, and still nothing. I phoned koodo and spent like 2hrs with them stepping
me through crap, and it still didn't work. It's a US snapdragon model, verizon... it's working perfect on my koodo network up here, except for this. Even koodo can't tell me why... any theories?

This? maybe? Sounds like a setting under messaging needs turned on or off.
Or this? probably the same article.....

Still fighting with it, some texts work now... Was on the phone with koodo for 2 hours.... Darn high tech shit.

I think koodo has an insane low limit for pics... the one I have now is only 620k but refuses to dl.
One just previous to it was smaller and it shows. How cheap is this network? I pay per GB, so why
would they be cheap?

This 3rd party site fixed my issues. Koodo does not have this info. APN type must be changed from: default to: default,mms
For those having issues with mms pictures, follow this guide to the letter:
https://apn-canada.gishan.net/en/apn/koodo
The 2nd should not be needed. This should start to work even when connected to wifi.

That's the same site I used for Vidéotron and they are mostly right so go with it.

It totally works... all my pics come through now, even with wifi enabled.
Oh and I believe it's the APN type : default, changed to default,mms... that's it....
