I did all as your instructions on my Nexus one, and now a notification shows up whenever there is a new mms for me.

The problem's that i cant download that new mms message (of course as you said) by Messaging app and Handcent SMS. But I tried many other apps and couldn't find any app on Market which can solve this - download the mms.

Could you tell me what mms app do you use?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks to trolld on xda, I got some more suggestions for APN infos that relate to prepaid sims (like mine).

This hasn't completely solved my problems, I still have some problems with html messages and images, but I am pretty perfect with regular messages, which is enough (I'm leaving japan in a month, so I've invested enough time in this).

YMMV:

here are the settings:

MMS Settings
------------------------------------- -
Status: >> OPERATIONAL
Setting Name: VFJP Network
Modem Name: Softbank WAP

APN: mailwebservice.softbank.ne.jp
Username: softbank
Password: qceffknarlurqgbl

Proxy server: vfkkwapproxy.softbank.ne.jp
HTTP Port: 8080
Username: softbank
Password: qceffknarlurqgbl



Here are some more detailed instructions I used as a guide as well:
1. Settings --> Connections Tab --> Connections
2. Advanced Tab --> Select Networks
3. Programs that Automatically Connect to the Internet --> New
4. Enter a name for these settings --> Change "My isp name" to VFJP Network
5. Modem Tab --> New
6. Name for the Connection --> Softbank WAP
7. Select Cellular line (GPRS,3G)
8. Next
9. Access point name --> mailwebservice.softbank.ne.jp
10. Next
11. Username --> softbank
12. Password --> qceffknarlurqgbl (be careful to enter it correctly!)
13. Domain -->leave blank
14. Finish
15. Proxy Settings Tab
16. Check --> This network connects to the Internet
17. Check --> This network uses a proxy server to connect to the Internet
18. Proxy Server --> vfkwapproxy.softbank.ne.jp
19. Advance Button
20. HTTP Proxy --> vfkkwapproxy.softbank.ne.jp (no change)
21. Port 8080
22. Username --> softbank
23. Password --> qceffknarlurqgbl
24. Domain --> leave blank
25. Go to Messaging (Outlook e-mail?)
26. Menu --> Tools --> Options
27. Click --> MMS Servers Tab -->New button
28. Server Name --> mailwebservice.vodafone.ne.jp
29. Gateway --> vfkkmmsproxy.vodafone.ne.jp
30. Port 8080
31. Server Address --> http://mms/
32. Connect via VFJP Network
33. WAP Version --> WAP 2.0
34. OK
35. Tap [mailwebservice.vodafone.ne.jp] -->set as default button
36.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE?SOFTWARE?ARCSOFT?Arcsoft MMS UA?Config?mm1?{number}name=mailwebservice.vodafone .ne.jp
37. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE?SOFTWARE?ARCSOFT?Arcsoft MMS UA?Config?mm1?Wsptleader

I've tried 5 different Mms.apk's now from various places, and all force close on my HTC Desire >.<
I don't know if I'm installing them wrong or what (it does have to be done in recovery mode right?), but none work...
In this thread on 2ch people are saying that
erasing Mms.apk and Mms.odex, then adding in the new Mms.apk stopped the force closing issue for them,
but doesn't seem to have done the trick for me...

Running rooted desire with modaco r2 rom.

Edit:: Have now attempted to edit user agent of my own Mms.apk as in this post,
pulled Mms.apk and Mms.odex from phone, deodexed, edited the file and then placed classes.dex into Mms.apk and pushed back onto phone, deleted Mms.odex.
While it doesn't force close, it hasnt seem to have made any difference to receiving mms, still get generic network failure/cannot download errors.

Really new to all this, so I guess I'm doing something really wrong :/

Edit2:: lol, for some reason sending seems to work... phone says it hasn't sent (and keeps retrying) and so recipient gets message multiple times...
eventually found an apk that didn't force close on a japanese site, but that also couldn't download messages. Guess I've done something strange to the phone
or my APN settings are messed... dunno. Maybe be best to just wait for SB's official solution in 3rd quarter :/

Hi! The contents in this thread got me to understand my N1 a lot. But actually, the solution that really helped me was the link below.

I hope this could be some help.

Hi strife520!

I am in the same boat as you! Did you have some evolutions about configuring your Desire?

Yea managed to get it working.
(Just in case: I'm using a standard silver usim, on white plan. edit: Also, using パケットし放題フラット/ packet shihoudai flat)

For APN settings I used the same as those in the first post of this topic, just added
MMSC: http://mms/
MMS Proxy: mmsopen.softbank.ne.jp
MMS Port: 8080

to the first one. (I have both set, though I imagine one is redundant - too scared to change anything now it's working though.)

For the apk, I used the one found here - for those that can't read Japanese:
Direct link to download (All credit to Jackie73さん from kakaku.com)

With the above apn settings and that apk, everything (send/receive to phones and standard mail addies) works perfectly on my desire!

Hope this helps, good luck.


Note: I believe the above apk is designed to work on the modaco r2 rom, for stock/older version it might be necessary to use v3 of Jackie73's apk.

Hello everyone!,

I have uploaded a new MMS.apk (MMS8.zip) that is reported to work with Desire and Liquid with Android 2.1. A lot of problems with Softbank like empty messages were fixed.

You should ODEX after install or you may end with a force-close error.

Odex is Apk optimization. If you have your framework optimized (you surely have if you installed a custom ROM), than you should run ODEX after installing MMS.apk.

There is a lot of UserAgent to select from - I am using V702NK2 many others failed to work. Also you have an option to input one by yourself.

;) I am starting this topic for those of you who are like I was, using Softbank in Japan and have no clue how to setup Internet (pakehoudai) and MMS for Softbank.

will start with the easier part - setting up APN for Internet Connection:
1. Go to Settings > Wireless Controls > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names
2. Long press empty space or press menu and select Add New APN
3. For internet input:

  • Name:Open Softbank
  • APN: open.softbank.ne.jp
  • Proxy: <not set>
  • Port: 8080
  • Username:opensoftbank
  • Password:ebMNuX1FIHg9d3DA
  • Server: <not set>
  • MMSC: <not set>
  • MMS proxy: <not set>
  • MMS port: <not set>
  • MCC: 440
  • MNC: 20
  • APN type: default
In order to use that you should have a data-plan package like pakehoudai (paketto sihoudai) or you risk to get a huge bill in the end of month.

4. For MMS set a new APN just like you did for Internet, but with settings below:
  • Name:Open Softbank
  • APN: mailwebservice.softbank.ne.jp
  • Proxy: <not set>
  • Port: <not set>
  • Username:softbank
  • Password:qceffknarlurqgbl
  • Server: <not set>
  • MMSC: http://mms/
  • MMS proxy: sbmmsproxy.softbank.ne.jp
  • MMS port: 8080
  • MCC: 440
  • MNC: 20
  • APN type: mms
That alone will not magically make your MMS work, because Softbank checks for UserAgent when sending / receiving MMS. So you will need to install a custom Mms.apk attached to this post.
5. Install Android SDK on your PC
6. Root your device (AT YOUR OWN RISK! please search for instructions for your specific device on this forum.)
7. open command prompts (Start > Run > cmd) connect your device with USB cable and execute following commands:


That's it. Custom Mms.apk combined with correct APN should do the trick and you are able to send/receive MMS with Softbank.
MMS.zip is for Donut - tested and working on Acer Liquid / Android 1.6 and HTC Hero / Android 1.5
MmsEclair.zip is for Liquid Android 2.1 (tested on LCR, Vache all versions) Do not forget to ODEX after pushing if needed otherwise you fill have a Force Close error.
Mms8.zip is for Liquid and Desire on Android 2.1 (tested on Liquid only LCR, Vache all versions) THIS IS THE LATEST most feature rich and error-free version. Do not forget to ODEX after pushing if needed otherwise you fill have a Force Close error. (Credit to Jake for empty messages fix))
:(

Note: for MMSEclair and Mms8.zip, you have yo go to Messages>Settings>UserAgent and select a user agent. I am using 708SC and it works fine.

I'm using XT701 too.
ODEX is just like an Application signature file.
You can find the file, when [#ls /system/app/Mms*] command input (by adb).
that output like this.
-----
Mms.apk
Mms.odex
-----
and you input command [#mv /system/app/Mms.odex /system/app/Mms.odex.org], will don't force close.

*needs root, and remout /system

but I tried on my XT701, I can't send/receive MMS yet...
JakeMod8 Mms.apk is for Desire and I think XT701 have more some trouble with Softbank MMS, that have not find yet.

later, I could send and receive MMS.
My MMS setting is Mr.semsem1969 shown that.
and "Message" application>setting>Custom userAgent>Softbank V702NK2
(with JakeMod8 Mms.apk)

But, I tried these settings already...
while my trying, I uninstalled "handcentMMS".
I think this application have some trouble with Softbank MMS, maybe..

Try these settings.

I am really sorry, but I am new to the android. I have successfully rooted and installed the MoDaCo Desire rom to my device, but when I type in "adb remount..." to the command prompt, I got "failed to copy 'Mms.apk' to '/system/app/Mms.apk': Directory not empty." Does anyone know how to solve this?
Thank you.

EDIT: ok, i successfully pushed the file in recovery mode, but I am not too sure how to install the Mms.apk or what I would need to do the next step.
