    Hello guys,
    Well, I just bought an Att HTC Inspire and connected it with Straight talk. The only issue is that I can't send or receive picture messages. I called their support and according to them there might be some compatibility issues with my phone and their service. I am able to get internet perfectly... so, I don't know what the issue is. Please help!

    Update: I am able to send but not receive. It gives the option to download, I press it, but it does not download.

    I searched online... some say its possible, I tried their apn... but no success.

    Thanks in advance

    Are you using the new lte sim? Or sim swap trick? What apn are you using Att or Tf-data

    I'd try the att settings if your using the swap method unless the sim is a new one

    I'm just assuming that you downloaded apn backup and restore from play store ran and saved the preset at&t apn's to your sd card then went back to apn list and deleted them so they aren't listed and then you entered the tf apn setting ? It's been said that other apn's can mess with the one you want to use..

    Straight talk awhile back had instructed me to change my apn to the tf apn but after trying it and messing with trying to get it to work and having no luck at all they instructed me to continue to use the att setting which worked with no issues.

    I've been with Straight Talk for a couple of years now, and back in Jjanuary/February all of a sudden I was not able to send or receive pictures with my text messages. I have made sure that my settings were as posted on your site for the APN of tfdata. Any suggestions??
