    Default MMS and Straight Talk Cant receive

    Ive tried everything. triple verified settings. I was wondering if some one could provide screenshots of a fully functional At&t sim APN settings?

    Everything works except I cant receive MMS. If you have one that receives mms please post!
    Thank you in advance

    Copied from my e-mail from Straight Talk. Triple check your settings as I had a minor typo that was preventing mine from working correctly.

    APN PROGRAMMING FOR MOST PHONE MODELS:

    Once you have reached your phone's APN (Access Point Name) settings, create a new APN with the following values.
    1. APN Name: Straight Talk
    2. APN: tfdata
    3. Port: 80
    4. MMSC: http://mms-tf.net
    5. MMS Proxy: mms3.tracfone.com
    6. MMS Port: 80
    7. Delete the current APN from your phone.
    8. Reboot your phone.

    I just set up ST with those same settings. MMS works for me. I decided to try T-Mobile, StraightTalk (At&T), and then AT&T. So far ST is better for me than TM in So. Cal.

    Do you happen to have the Google Voice app on your phone? I have the N4 and am on ST-AT&T. When I had the GV app on my phone, MMS wouldn't work, but when I uninstalled it, MMS would work. I still use GV for voicemail, but I just don't use the app.

    Interesting. I'll try removing it. But I only use it for voice mail.

    I can send. Just not receive. And I am a new St customer. Not sure if that has any bearing. I have those settings.
    But I would like to see a screen shot of the rest of the settings to see if mine are the same.

    I ended up ordering a new sim today from ST. Many people are saying that cures the problem. I will keep everyone posted.

    I am having the same issue on Metro PCS. But, I think it is the network issue and want to talk to them about it since when I put my Nexus 5 on as a GSM device that is really on T-Mobile networks since Metro is still CDMA. I have flipped form Textra, 8SMS and back to Hangout trying to get pictures texted to me which is MMS.

    After over a week of frustration the new sim fixed the problem

    Yes, that's been reported as a solution for many here https://productforums.google.com/for...A/7l4fGeWoGH0J. I have the same problem on gophone. Hubby's iPhone 4S sim works in my N5 but he can't receive MMS with my sim in his phone either. I'll be going to an AT&T store in the morning per level 3 support suggestion.

    I used the Straight Talk APN Settings with ATT Sim, 5 days later it worked, the same time as I received an email confirming the setup for auto-refill was verified.
    Patience seems to have cured the problem.

    Buy a new sim. It's that simple. Anyone who uses straight talk should just buy 2 Sims. Activate with the first one. Then... Transfer over to the 2nd one.

    If I already have activated a few months of service, wouldn't I lose all that credit?

    Refer to post #7 and confirm that your settings are exactly like that. It sounds like that may be the problem since you cant send or receive.

    It didn't help me either. If I find an answer I will let you know.

    I bought my son and I both an AT & T Samsung Galaxy s3 phone; bought both of us the AT & T SIM card from ST as well. Have entered all of the SAME settings above and STILL cannot receive pictures on EITHER phone. We can send but cannot receive. This is just plain stupid and talking with the "customer service' at ST is like talking to a wall. "Elllo....my name iz Bawb' .........bull......his name is probably Shalek or something. ST service works great for me but I"d rather be caned naked in from of WalMart than to have to talk to their customer service people. UGH. If anyone ever finally resolves this problem please let me know. swinn@hotmail.com PLEASE. *Don't tell me to reboot......done that 100 times now......nothing.
