I'd like to know why my picture messaging may no longer be working. I have an LG Optimus One (LG-P500h) and recently updated my android version from 2.2.1 to 2.3.3 via LG update tool. Ever since I've been unable to send picture messages. I've checked my APN's and I see 3 listed.

Koodo SP
Koodo SP
Koodo MMS.

The second one is selected.

The first Koodo SP does not have a proxy or port set. The second one does.I cannot edit any of them.

The 3rd one is for sending picture messages, have you tried selecting that one?
If it doesn't let Internet work then the first one should do both by the sounds of it. I think the first one will let everything work fine again.

One option is to delete all three and create a new APN.

The settings to fill in are:
Name: Koodo
APN: sp.koodo.com
Port: 80
MMSC: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/koodo/...
MMS proxy:
MMS Port: 80

Everything else you can leave alone.

(note: the MMSC setting ends with "mmsc" not "...", stupid autolinking.)

Thanks for the advice. Sadly after I turned the phone off and then on again, the SIM card started having errors. I'm taking it in today. I appreciate the help though!

If you haven't setup a custom apn there is another fix that sometimes helps: from the apn's page, tap the menu button, then choose reset to default. This would fix any corrupted settings in the apns without factory resetting the whole phone. If the sim card is having errors, though, I would agree that you should replace that first.
