    Default Samsung S3 won't send MMS

    Hi, I have a Sprint Galaxy S3 that I am using with Straight Talk. I have talked to customer service and Samsung and I can't figure out why my phone won't send a picture. When I try to send a picture it just sits there, sometimes for hours, trying to send the message and I'll eventually just get the message "MMS Failed". All you see when trying to send is the load circle. I've seen on the forums where people suggest adding an APN; however, I cannot add an APN. I don't have that option and Straight Talk says that I actually don't need an APN or it's already built in or something. Anyone know how to fix this?

    How is your 3G/4G signal when it fails? If you are in a weak signal area it just will not go. If you are on 2G/Edge it won't work either.

    I don't know anything about the difference between the Sprint version phone and the AT&T version, but apparently the latter requires APN changes Straight Talk apn settings for AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3
    (Straight talk apn settings for at&t samsung galaxy s3)

    Perhaps something in that thread will prove useful - if not, sorry for misdirecting you.

    Try this, Before you go to setting go to google and type in eg (vodafone MMS port- to find out what is your MMSC and MMS port) once you got it.
    Now go to:
    Setting
    More Settings
    Mobile Network
    Access Point Name
    Select your prefer Network Option (APNs)
    Under MMSC(type the https site)
    Change your MMS port eg(8080) might be different depend which country you in.
    and LAST. APN type (type - mms,supl)

    hope this helps.. It works for me when nothing else does.......

    Will that work for the S3 phone? The instructions say they're for the S4.
