fMMS is a python application with a graphical frontend for sending and receiving MMS on the N900.

When reporting a problem PLEASE be specific and PLEASE attach /tmp/fmms.log. Thank you.

BEFORE INSTALLING PLEASE READ http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=343619&postcount=1

v 0.6.1 video walkthrough: http://mynokiablog.com/2010/04/16/n9...p-receive-mms/

Old version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PweDR6I0Bt0, thanks MaemoSverige!


If you decide to test this application, please drop a comment here, on irc (nick: frals) or in a PM/e-mail

GUI FOR ADDING ANOTHER APN: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=39951

---------------------------
As of release 0.6 there is now multiple "connection modes" available:

* Polite (Default behavior <0.6): Only switch to MMS connection if no connection is active, otherwise do nothing (pretty much)
* Rude: Force a disconnect of the active connection regardless of what it is, connect to MMS APN and then reconnect to the old one.
* Havoc: Try to bring up a connection to the MMS APN in parallell with whatever is active, this is what most other phones do. Note that to get this functionality on the N900 there are a few ugly hacks active which might break stuff, but it *should* work
---------------------------

Changing user-agent fMMS sends (Softbank JP users need to do this from what I've heard):
gconftool-2 -s /apps/fmms/useragent --type string "New UA String"

If you are having problems with the MMS APN being chosen by "Connect Automatically" the following steps before installing fMMS 0.9.12 *SHOULD* do the trick:
NOTE: This only applies to people coming from a version prior to 0.9.12!
These commands clears all configuration settings for fMMS, so make sure you save the settings somewhere (http://wiki.maemo.org/MMS is a good place for connection settings ;-)) before running any command.


Open terminal:
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/fmms
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /system/osso/connectivity/IAP/z_fMMS-APN

Make sure to copy and paste these as a space in the wrong place is VERY LIKELY to bork system stuff.

NOTE: As of 0.9.12 the settings for fMMS might no longer be saved in /system/osso/connectivity/IAP/z_fMMS-APN so deleting this might remove your GPRS Internet connection settings. However, a device reboot seems to restore the APN.

SHORT FAQ
  • Problem: "Name or service unknown"/"No route to host"/"Connection refused" or similar when sending
    Solution: Make sure you are connected to the MMS APN - if you still get the error, try pinging the mmsc host from the terminal. If it still fails, double check your connection settings. If your provider list a "MMS Proxy" or "MMS Gateway", input this in the HTTP Proxy settings for the connection

DON'T FORGET TO SET THE PROXY IN INTERNET CONNECTIONS

Thanks for testing!

Excellent - while I don't personally use MMS - I see it as something that a lot of people were complaining about. Great t see the community can add something like this without Nokias involvement.

good stuff. Now I can stop my iphone using girlfriend (although she did admit she was fairly jealous and impressed by the n900) from saying "but it cant even send pictures!" in jest. we often exchange pictures (of many things)

Thanks! great effort.

Am having a little trouble. no matter what I put as an APN. it says its wrong. but i got it from my other cellphones config. so i'm sure its right.

what does it do to check the APN?

It checks against the list of installed APNs in the phone (listed under Internet Connections in the Settings menu) - that is, you have to have one configured that it's suppose to use, it does not currently create a new one for you.

Ie. what you should do is put in the name of an existing APN in your phone

I'm working on a GUI to add a new GPRS APN so it can be configured in Internet Connections settings as you can't add a new GPRS access point through the UI at this time

ah... now it makes sense.

i had the same problem and no clue what to do. so once the new AP is in the settings, i also need to go there and insert the required proxy settings, right? the config dialog in your app will only point to the existing settings. fine.

adding an AP is done through a bunch of mysterious gconf commands, right?

Yeah - I should make that more clear - added to todo list for the next version. It takes the name of an existing APN and gets the proxy settings from it

Yes, if you are confident in using the terminal and entering a bunch of mysterious potentially dangerous commands they are listed at https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5791#c16
