GO SMS mms over wifi

Anyone out there using Go SMS? If I'm on WIFI and I try sending an mms using Go SMS it won't send. I know on my EVO the 3G turns on briefly to send the SMS and then goes back to WIFI. It seems on my Shift that the 3G won't switch on while on WIFI and so the mms just sits there trying to send thorough WIFI (which I don't think is possible). Anyone else experiencing this? I wonder if there's a setting I'm missing?
Thanks.

This sure is a quiet forum. I guess there's not too many Shifts out there yet? Can someone try sending an MMS over WIFI and let me know if your Shift switches to 3G and successfully sends the MMS. As I stated, mine will stay on WIFI and the message just keeps trying to send and never gets sent. As soon as I shut off WIFI the message gets sent through 3G. This is whether I use the stock message app or Go Sms.
Thanks in advance.

I'm using Go SMS Pro on an EVO 4G and am having the same issue. I have to turn off WiFi in order to send a MMS.

It is that way on Handcent and Chomp also. Sometimes it will go, but 90% of the time the wifi interferes with it. I have an EVO not a shift.

I was having the same issue then I power cycled my router. Not sure if that helped but seems to be working now but I like DJ said I think it works when it wants to. lol
