    What are your APN settings for Internet and MMS. Are you using T Mobile Sim?

    Hi I was just wondering if you had any issues of not being able to receive mms on your Lumia 822 using straight talk? Everything works great on mine, but for some reason I cannot receive mms, but I am able to send. Let me know, thanks

    Internet sharing won't work on AT&T unless you have a plan that allows tethering. IIRC this is true for all WP8 phones, its probably a concession MSFT had to make to the carriers. I have MMS errors but I think the accesspoint application will help.

    Zim I have gone through the same thing you are. I have researched tried every setting imagineable, had straight talk work many times on a solution only to say it must be the phone. As you stated everything works but incoming MMS. Sure wish someone could address this isuue.

    Just to chime in, I'm having the exact same issue with my 920 on Straight Talk. I'm about to just switch to the ATT LTE GoPhone plan, since you won't have to worry about these APN issues (plus LTE and internet access right when you pop in the SIM, good for the backup and restore option that doesn't work with Straight Talk).

    Does everyone have MMS? My dad can't receive picture messages.... If it's not possible - no biggie. But it is, I'd really like to get the setting fixed right on his phone.

    I have the Verizon Lumia 822, I received my SIM card from Straight Talk yesterday. It works great except for one issue. I can't send or receive picture text messages. Can you help me with this? I can't seem to figure it out.

    Thank you,
    Melanie

    MMS is locked to Verizon. You won't be able to get MMS to work.

    Maybe it will work now. I don't have a Verizon phone or account.

    Has anyone gotten the 822 to work completely - data, mms, sms, everything - on Straight Talk? I'd like to know because my step-daughter is on Straight Talk, and when I get 12 more points on DVLUP I'll be able to grab a free 822/820/810 as a reward, and the other two look like they're locked, so I'm leaning toward 822 (besides, there's an extra 8GB storage). I don't want to get it for her if it won't work, though, and I don't have a Straight Talk SIM to try it with. It's going to be a Christmas (early) surprise for her, so I don't want to let her know yet. She loved her Sprint Arrive, but when it broke she went with a cheap Android on Straight Talk, and she is so over that thing it isn't funny.

    I'd appreciate any feedback on how to make it work, as I've never used an MVNO before, so I've not touched the settings yet that would need to be changed.

    I just switched my phone yesterday to Straight Talk, and I've tested Data, SMS and MMS, (sending, at least) and they all work. I didn't do anything unusual, just used the APN settings at the ST site.

    One caveat, though. I am using the AT&T version of Straight Talk, so I make no claims about the T-Mo version.

    I didn't know ST used ATT's network. Thanks. Do they say on the package when you buy a SIM (I assume you can buy a SIM at Walmart?) what network they use?

    The package actually came with 4 sim cards, a mini and a micro for AT&T, and a mini and a micro for T-Mobile.

    Just don't make the same mistake I made and accidentally enter the sim number for the min-sim instead of the micro-sim.

    Ok - I appreciate the info.

    Also, I just learned that my step-daughter is using Straight Talk without a SIM. Sprint network? So obviously, I'll have to buy a SIM to give her with the phone. Will she be able to transfer her account from one to the other?

    If you're asking if she can transfer her number, then yes.
