Consider contributing your own if it is not.

*Note* that your carrier's nameserver must be present in /etc/resolv.conf in
order to send/receive mms.  This should be automatic.  However, sometimes
NetworkManager will place the wifi's nameservers *above* the carrier's
nameservers, and since /etc/resolv.conf can only use the first three entries,
the carrier's nameservers will not be used.  To fix this, you can set dns=none
in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and use a static /etc/resolv.conf
instead.
