    IPhone WiFi calling - does it work with MMS texts on Cricket?

    I put my phone in airplane mode with wifi enabled. I can make calls and send texts but MMS/group texts do not work. Is this a known limitation?

    IPhone WiFi calling - does it work with MMS texts on Cricket?

    When you go to: Settings/Messages is: “Send as SMS,” and: “MMS Messaging,” turned on?

    I don’t have Cricket but when I disabled Cellular and Enabled Wi-Fi only I am able to send picture messages from my iPhone.
    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    MMS Messaging is turned on but not Send as SMS. I turned it on but I still get the same failure that it can't send. The way I'm testing is that I put it airplane mode with WiFi enabled and try to send a text to two people with android phones, not iphones.

    some say MMS did work on wifi but now no longer works you may need a third party app according to the reddit post - https://www.reddit.com/r/CricketWire..._wifi_calling/ might try going into the apn settings and change the MMS proxy to proxy.mobile.att.net - https://www.reddit.com/r/NoContract/..._connected_to/
