Verizon Palm Pre Plus MMS and WiFi Concerns

February 3, 2010, By Atul Roach

Alright now you may have been doubly treated by Verizon Wireless with its buy one take one free offer for the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus handsets but, as a VZW subscriber you have some issues to be resolved by now. The Palm Pre Plus running with VZW as a carrier does not send MMS messages when the WiFi of the device is on.

The obvious concern is that VZW sends such messages through its EVDO network while the Palm Pre Plus tries to send it through WiFi and hence those MMS messages are not being sent. The easiest way therefore to send those messages is to turn the WiFi off every time you forward an MMS.

VZW users have also had problems using GPS on the Palm Pre Plus as the tower assisted A-GPS only works for people who have bought the VZ Navigator. The solution to the problem is opening the VZ navigator (each time you wish to access GPS) even if you haven’t subscribed for the service. The glitches are there of course but the pleasing factor is these easy solutions. [via: Softsailor]
