    I have recently got a Lumia 920 on AT&T not on contract, and have been having issues with MMS messaging.

    I was able to get my internet working with the wap.cingular APN, but have not been able to get my MMS to work.

    As I understand right now, the Network Setting app is not available on the market, so I just added the APN in the setting of the phone itself.
    I got the internet to work on the first try, but have not been able to get the MMS to work. I was wondering if someone knows what settings I should enter
    for the "add mms apn" option in the cellular menu in settings.

    The fields I need to fill go as follow:

    APN:
    User name:
    Password:
    Wap gateway (URL):
    WAP gateway port:
    MMSC (URL):
    MMSC port:
    Maximum MMS size:

    My "add internet apn" settings are as follows:

    APN: wap.cingular
    User name: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    Password: CINGULAR1
    Proxy server (URL): blank
    Proxy port: blank

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try:

    APN: wap.cingular
    User name: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    Password: CINGULAR1
    Wap gateway (URL): http://wireless.cingular.com
    WAP gateway port: 80
    MMSC (URL): http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMSC port: 80
    Maximum MMS size: -blank-

    Pretty sure that should work for you...but then again I'm buzzed and going off of memory. If not, hit me up and I'll give you another profile.

    Odd, those are my settings. When entering the UN/PW, make sure to cap them, as both fields are case sensitive.

    Sorry, I should have mentioned you need to visit that link on your phone and it would open the store instead where you could install it.

    It is probably because my account still has an old plan where I pay $30 for unlimited text and web for supposed "non feature phones"
    I had it for about 4 years now, and have always used unlocked Nokia phones without any issues. The 920 is AT&T branded, and I had to switch to a micro sim.
    When I first switched, mms and internet both didn't work. AT&T reps were just trying to get me to switch to a different plan. Luckily now I have this, and even though I do not get LTE speeds,
    I have unlimited HSPA+ speeds. Plenty happy with it.

    How were you able to get mms up and running? Any issues with apps or the windows phone store? Because I can't get it to work at all.

    I am in the same boat with an older plan. I got the web working but have had no luck with MMS. Was there a particular option in the Access Point app you found to work for you? There are 3 options in Access Point on my phone (AT&T 3G, AT&T - LTE1 Lumia, AT&T -LTE2 Lumia).
    thank you!

    You need to add an access point to get it to work. Use the ones that were listed above, it worked for me. I don't get LTE speeds, just 3G, but I have unlimited text and web for $30, so it's a fair compromise in my opinion.

    Thank you! This finally fixed my issue with not receiving group messages or pictures via text. I used this method first, No longer receive any MMS messages . I didnt want to lose all of my text history and moving the messages to a new outlook.com folder seemed to do the trick. I then followed mth's instructions just to be sure. BTW, I didnt have to "reset" the phone, just restart.
