[RndTbl] Android/Nexus 5 on MTS & MMS.

Hey Sean,

I run Cyanogen Mod on a OnePlus One and have, potentially, had the same
problem. SMS works fine but MMS images never download.

Google changed the default SMS/MMS app to "Hangouts" in later/current
versions of Android and it doesn't work with many carrier's MMS systems. As
a workaround, using Androids SMS/MMS app "Messaging" instead of Hangouts
works fine for both MMS/SMS. Images are delivered instantly.

I've spoken with a few MTS cell techs who've given me several different APN
settings to try but none resolved the issue. The techs also acknowledged
having to use "Messaging" on their own phones.

I'd be happy to know the solution if you find one because I'd prefer the
flexibility Hangouts provides.
