Cant receive pictures through mms??



  • i used my radio frequency meter to measure the data being sent and received by the phone. when a picture is sent from another contact to the ubuntu touch phone(nexus 5), the phone shows it is receiving the information, but doesnt seem to want to display it. as i mentioned above, the phone sends picture messages without a problem to other contacts, and also texting works amazingly. seems to be the display that might be the problem and not the carrier?? i have also tried all apn settings, with all the same results. but the phone is definatly receiving information when a picture is sent to the nexus.??? interesting.



  • @AlainW94 @dobey Thanks Guys for this hint 🙂 I let you know if i find something interesting there



  • @sk8rdie Good info there indeed.
    Thanks for sharing this 🙂



  • Hi Guys,
    I followed your instructions and indeed debug mode gave some additional info.
    When i try to send mms i get error below

    Mar 28 19:41:46 ubuntu-phablet ofonod[1085]: ril_setup_data_call_cb: reply->status for apn: mms, is non-zero: ERROR_UNSPECIFIED
    

    When i send mms to my OPO i get output below so the message is definitely sent to my phone but somehow it cannot be displayed. I found info about those 2 actions in history.sqlite.

    Well your SMS is arrived, it is the stream above.
    you said that you got it into your history db ? Right ?

    If yes, in the DB there is a column for the attachment, can you check if it exist in the attachment folder please (./.local/share/history-service/attachments) ?



  • @AlainW94 Unfortunately i did those 2 tests (send and receive mms) one after another and because of that the output log from ofono was not really clear.
    I decided to perform second test. This time i just sent mms message to my OPO.
    Unfortunately there is neither entry in history.sqlite nor attachment in history-service/attachments folder.

    New object in attachments folder and new row in history.sqlite is created only when i try to send mms from my OPO to some other device.



  • @tricky Can you try to reach this link from morph browser : http://geo1:8002/cSvMacnsEHCA

    if this works you will be prompted to download a file (your mms content).



  • @AlainW94 When i try to open it i get ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED error



  • @tricky Did you try with WiFi off ?, this is a server from your provider.



  • @AlainW94 I thought that you have 2 SIM card installed right ?



  • @AlainW94 Yes, Wifi is disabled. I do have only one SIM installed. It's not possible to install 2 SIM Cards to One Plus One. It might be that indeed my mms APN is not properly configured due to missing additional parameters. Maybe i could try to add all parameters manually to config file. I've seen some old topic related to Ubuntu Touch where it was described where apn settings are stored



  • @tricky Yes this is a thing you can try, and you should see if the configuration is fine if you success to ping the geo1 server or you could reach it through morph browser.



  • @AlainW94 That was this thread below:
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/413438/no-mobile-data-on-nexus-4-ubuntu-touch

    In /usr/share/ofono/scripts i found script create-mms-context so i will try to create mms APN first and then add all parameters with set-context-property script.



  • @tricky Very nice, please let us know if that works, and this can maybe be useful for other user that had your provider if you can share the info settings of your working APN



  • I tried to edit mms settings with set-context-property script but either this script doesn't work properly or I'm doing something wrong.
    I'm trying to change authentication method from chap to pap. According to my provider i should use pap method.

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:/usr/share/ofono/scripts$ ./list-contexts 
    [ /ril_0 ]
        [ /ril_0/context14 ]
            MessageCenter = http://mms.orange.pl
            Username = mms
            MessageProxy = 192.168.6.104:8080
            Name = MMS
            Type = mms
            AccessPointName = mms
            AuthenticationMethod = chap
            Active = 0
            IPv6.Settings = { }
            Password = mms
            Protocol = ip
            Settings = { }
            Preferred = 1
    

    According to the documentation i should use it as it's shown below:
    set-context-property [modem] [context_number] <name> <value>

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:/usr/share/ofono/scripts$ ./set-context-property /ril_0 14 AuthenticationMethod pap
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "./set-context-property", line 62, in <module>
        path = contexts[context_idx][0]
    IndexError: list index out of range
    

    Syntax seems to be correct because if i make typo in modem name or context number i get error message that context doesn't exist or modem name is wrong



  • @tricky I looked in the script file, the strange thing is that it seem that the context id passed through the command line is minored by one in the script :

    context_idx = int(sys.argv[1]) - 1
    

    Can you try the same command you type before but with a context number of 15 please?



  • I was able to get mobile data working with those scripts as well as get MMS to send but never received a, I even went the extra step of removing all the other APNs prior due to the data one not being correctly set when I try to activate the mobile data. I haven't tried changing the AuthenticationMethod yet however next time I play with it I will try that. I know it isn't messing up on my device cause there are only 2 APNs, one for data and one for MMS



  • @AlainW94 Unfortunately i get the same error

    I decided to delete all APNs and create only one APN for internet.
    Interesting that this new APN has been created with number 18. Shouldn't be 0 or 1 ? It might be that remove contexts scripts doesn't delete all related data.

    phablet@ubuntu-phablet:/usr/share/ofono/scripts$ ./list-contexts
    [ /ril_0 ]
        [ /ril_0/context18 ]
            IPv6.Settings = { }
            Password = internet
            Settings = { }
            AccessPointName = internet
            Preferred = 1
            AuthenticationMethod = chap
            Active = 0
            Username = internet
            Protocol = ip
            Name = Internet
            Type = internet
    
    
    ./set-context-property /ril_0 18 AuthenticationMethod pap
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "./set-context-property", line 62, in <module>
        path = contexts[context_idx][0]

    Could it be that the context number is irrelevant and what you instead are passing is the index number? So that should be 1 in this case.



  • @arubislander That was it! many thanks for this hint 🙂
    Back to testing. I will keep you updated
