MMS - Cant receive - Nexus 4 with AT&T

MMS - Cant receive - Nexus 4 with AT&T

Postby vonoventwin » Thu Jun 27, 2013 2:43 pm

FIXED: So i created 2 APNs. One is basically just blank:
Name: ST
APN: tfdata
Everything else NOT SET or default

The second one is:
Name: ST MMS
APN: tfdata
Port: 80
MMSC: http://mms-tf.net
MMS Proxy: mms2.tracfone.com
MMS Port: 80
APN type: mms

For some reason, this works for me. However, I just bought my wife a Nexus 4 as well, also has an AT&T sim and she can't get MMS to work with these same settings. Weird!

Title says it all. I bought a Google Nexus 4 and have a micro sim for AT&T. Had my phone provisioned the day I got it (2 weeks ago) and everything works except MMS. I verified my APN settings are the same listed on Straight Talks website and they are. Everything else works great (Voice, Data, and Text). Here are my APN settings:

Name: Straight Talk
APN: tfdata
Port: 80
MMSC: http://mms-tf.net
MMS Proxy: mms3.tracfone.com
MMS Port: 80

To keep this thread up to date, the tech first asked for my phone number. That is after I followed the 5 post rule to enable my PM box...

Tech question:
Is your phone unlocked? Is the phone an AT&T compatible?

My answer:
YES its an unlocked Nexus 4 and it has an AT&T sim. Like I said everything is working but I can't receive MMS. Someone said I may have to add another APN?

Tech question:
All the values were correct. You may need to reset your phone and set the APN settings again.

My answer:
Are you kidding me? I have done this several times... I'm an IT geek, this is not my first rodeo. Is there anyway you can just reprovision my device?

Vono, same issue with me a week ago, Nexus 4 with ST AT&T micro sim. Once I ported, data went to shit with their APN settings.

Yours is almost the same as mine, just without the MMS proxy and modified APN type, as I highlighted below. Yea, shouldn't need to reboot, but sometimes you have to. Good luck!

I'm having this same problem but none of my posts have been approved so no one knows about it yet. :(
