    Default Receiving MMS on Straight Talk

    So I've looked around for a solid solution to this problem, but I can't find one that works for me. I have the Moto X on Straight talk. Data, talk, text and even sending MMS works great. I just can't receive picture messages. I've tried the APN Straight Talk suggests along with several on this forum and others. Has anyone with a Moto X found a way to resolve this? Any help would be fantastic. For reference, I've tried:

    Straight Talk
    tfdata

    mms3.tracfone.com
    80
    310
    410

    I've tried several variations of this as well including APN type: default,supl,mms adding Port:80


    Thank you so much for anyone who is willing to try and help!

    Jake

    Try replacing the mms3 with mms2 ie mms2.tracfone.com

    sadly mms2 did not work either : [ ive seen some people have better luck when their second billing cycle starts. im hoping that is the case for me, but if not, then i have no idea what else to do. straight talk says its my phone, but my mom and sister just got moto g and they have the exact same issue as well.

    I've searched for this too, I have a unlocked x on ST, and it looks like I see 3 options that are almost guaranteed to work:
    1. Wait for your bill cycle to reload. I've never seen this NOT work, so that's encouraging. Just gotta wait.

    2. Buy another Sim card for 7 bucks and transfer your number to it, and voila, the mms works. I also have see this work many times and 100% of the time. What's an extra 7 bucks when you're paying 45 a Month ? I am currently thinking about taking this route. I'm so cheap tho, I've been telling friend to email me.

    3. Buy a new reload card and apply it immediately to your account. I've seen this work for people, problem is, straight talk may or may not credit you for the days u have left on your current balance. U also would have to deal with their excellent customer service if you tried to recoup those plan days. But I've seen that work a number of people.

    4. I forgot, I've seen a lot of success with people just factory resetting their phones and re entering APN settings and mms receiving just starts working. I want to try this but I'm too lazy to want to set up my brand new phone all over again.

    I will try the factory reset today and see if that works, I think it will. Now, what I haven't really seen work is tinkering with APN settings. I've been looking this up for about a month ever since the black Friday sale, and I've studied this issue a lot. Ive literally seen around a 10% success rate for people tinkering with APN settings, not to mention it didn't work for me either....that's clearly not the issue.
    Please spread the word...
