re: Hubrisnxs: I absolutely did see that thread and know it well. I am not sure if you are familiar with that thread or found it via search to reply here but it concentrates on the QoS/MMS issue I mentioned in my original post. They do wander on that thread but I was there early on in my testing and covered everything and explained that in my op. Thank you for the effort, let us know if you find anything else.
