    Straight Talk can't send or receive picture messaging? Fix here!

    When I first registered for Straight Talk, everything was working great, but I was not able to send or receive picture messaging, MMS. Therefore, after countless hours of research on the Internet, I was able to find that you should have a second APN setting entered for your MMS settings! Thanks Straight Talk for providing this information for us Android users. Not sure if these settings are still the same for other devices.

    I’ve been using Straight Talk now for over a week and everything is still going great! I had one hiccup with picture messaging. I had entered in another APN setting for MMS picture messaging and everything was working good for a few days. Then, I was having issues with my data connection so I changed my other APN setting with one I found online. However, that ended up screwing up my MMS settings again! Sounds confusing, but really it was an easy fix and I’m here to give you the settings you need to talk, text, data, and MMS.

    Enter in this APN for your talk, text, and data:

    _________________________________
    Name: ST (or whatever you want)
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com
    Port: 80
    Username: Not set
    Password: Not set
    Server: Not set
    MMSC: http: mmsc. cingular. com (**no spaces and no”//”**)
    MMSC proxy: 66.209.11.33
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication Type: Not set
    APN type: default,supl,mms (notice I took off the mms! This is because we’ll enter a 2nd APN for mms.)
    APN protocol: IPv4
    Bearer: Not specified

    _________________________________

    Now, we’ll enter in a another APN for your picture messaging. So go to your APN settings on your phone and create a new APN. Use these settings:

    ___________________________________________
    Name: MMS
    APN: att.mvno
    skip down to MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication Type: Not set
    skip to APN type and enter: mms
    THEN SAVE

    ___________________________________________


    In case you like screenshots, here are the first two screenshots and how your settings should look for the your 1st APN titled ST (or whatever you called it.)





















    continued on to 2nd screenshot…

























    Now onto your MMS APN setting. These are the screenshots for how your 2nd APN called MMS should look:























    Continued on to 2nd screenshot….
























    There you go! Your phone should have perfect working talk, text, data, and picture messaging! I haven’t had any issues since I’ve using these two APN settings together.

    Does this work on the Proclaim as well as the S2 or only on the S2?

    You don't choose 2 APNs. When you enter in the 2nd one (MMS) the system will not let you choose this APN. It will just know to use it for MMS when you enter in the type: MMS

    What phone are you using?

    Enter in the APN settings above, but REMOVE the following:

    Proxy:
    MMSC:
    MMSC proxy:
    MMS port:


    So it would look like this:

    Name: ST (or whatever you want)
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: Not set
    Port: Not set
    Username: Not set
    Password: Not set
    Server: Not set
    MMSC: http: Not set
    MMSC proxy: Not set
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication Type: Not set
    APN type: default,supl,mms (notice I took off the mms! This is because we’ll enter a 2nd APN for mms.)
    APN protocol: IPv4
    Bearer: Not specified

    Same as me. So yes, try these new setting since you're now running Jelly Bean. The old settings were for Ice Cream Sandwich.
