I recently purchased an att samsung galaxy s2 skyrocket, unlocked. I purchased an ATT sim for Straight talk. Have had Straight talk for about a year now and had no problem porting my number. I went to their website changed the apn settings as suggested by them, I have great internet, 4G most of the time, but I cannot send or receive mms messages. What do I need to change to do this? Don’t want to lose my internet capabilities while trying to fix my mms issues. HELP
Try 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 for the MMS proxy. Let me know.
Can you send me a screenshot of your apn settings. All of them, if it is two pages long?
Try changing mms3.tracfone.com to mms2.tracfone.com and see if that works. Also can you tell me what version of android you phone is running?
Go to that Straight Talk link you sent me and enter your phone number or SIM number and leave me a comment on this page with the values the site returns to you. Do not include your phone number or SIM number in the response.
I may be able to help you. Can you point me to what they told you to do on their website. We may be able to get your MMS working. I will point out that you may lose your internet for period on time you are trying different MMS settings, but you should then be able to restore internet whether or not you get your mms working. Let me know if you want some help.
