Change the APN for Cellular Data only.
I just add an X to the front of it. This will mess up regular data, but since the MMS APN is correct, MMS will send normally

Thanks for the quick reply!

But what are the actual Koodo APN settings for MMS? And when you say, "just add an X to the front of it", what is "it"?
thanks

Sorry!  One more question, does the phone need to be unlocked to be able to edit the APN settings?  I have an Android phone and it is not letting me edit the APN setting - my phone is locked in to Koodo.

Let me know
thanks

You should be able to change the settings. If it's not letting you edit, please try creating a new APN with the desired settings and make sure that it's selected.
