I have an unlocked Verizon Samsung note 5 but I'm using it on AT&T. Everything works fine except for sending and receiving pictures through text. I can't send photos or download and open photos. What's going on with this? Can someone please help. I disabled the Verizon SMS app and made Samsung SMS app my default. Still having the same issue

Do you have the right settings for MMS at ATT? If you don't, MMS won't work (and you might have issues connecting to higher speed mobile data). Usually those are obtained automagically from the SIM card or a text from the carrier, but if that didn't work, you'll have to get them (and input manually) from ATT.

The current AT&T APN settings are:

Name NXTGENPHONE
APN NXTGENPHONE
Proxy
Port
Username
Password
Server
MMSC http://mmsc.mobile.att.net
MMS proxy proxy.mobile.att.net
MMS port 80
MCC 310
MNC 410
Authentication Type
APN type default,mms,supl,hipri
APN protocol IPv4
Bearer


(If a setting is blank, just leave it blank. The name is just for you to know which APN this one is, if you have more than one in the phone, so call it anything you like. In the APN type data there are no spaces. It won't work if there are any spaces in the data.)

If you're getting mobile data, the only ines to be concerned with are MMSC, MMS and MMS port. If you're not getting mobile data, make sure they're all correct. (If you're getting mobile data, all except those 3 are.)
