MMS sending has worked for me. But now it tells me "Ihre Dateneinstellungen verhindern den MMS-Versand mit Roaming" (Your data settings prohibit MMS sending with roaming - or so). Well, roaming is enabled, I have checked this. What else ist stopping MMS from working? Thanks!

Oh, it works again. After I bounced the device.

I'm seeing the same problem. I upgraded to firmware, and after that I went abroad, and I noticed I'm not able to send MMS anymore.. Jolla keeps saying my settings prevent MMS sending..

I tried with mobile data "always allowed", and "always ask", but neither did work.. I wasn't able to send MMS while abroad / data roaming.

I'm facing the same problem on Xperia XA2, even though my provider sent me a text message to tell me MMS are free form Finland… I can't seem to find anything in the settings to allow sending MMS while roaming (even though I'm using the internet with no problem). What am I missing ?

In order for MMS to work in roaming, the recipient's operator has to have some sort of agreement with your roaming operator about MMS delivery. Your home operator also has to be involved somehow, at least for billing purposes. All that rarely works in practice. MMS design in general isn't particularly friendly towards even simple cross-provider scenario, let alone roaming.
