Hi guys, I bought a 920 locked to EE in the UK and have a virgin sim in it. I've managed to set up the data and it is fully functional except for mms which won't send
I've followed this guide LUMIA 920: HOW TO ACTIVATE MMS MESSAGING ON VIRGIN... - Nokia Support Discussions which in short is adding the Access Point to the settings then putting in the APN settings. I can't work out why it isn't working :(
These are my settings in the Access Point (the apn setting area is blank as the guide suggests)

Has anyone got a 920 working on virgin? Thanks for reading!

Hi there, I did have this working when I first bought my 920 home, I followed the exact same guide.
However there was something wrong with the "Find My Phone" settings (showed as Off even though the slider was enabled), hence did a hard reset (via the "about" settings page).
Since then, I followed the same steps but with no luck. I'm tempted to upgrade to the latest EE firmware and see if that changes anything?

It does seem temperamental, the phone is meant to obtain the settings from the sim but I guess it's being hidden because it's not unlocked. I was considering a hard reset but the reports of it causing more trouble make me worried about my poor new phone!

I updated to Portico yesterday. There's still no luck with MMS.
It only worked the very first time I followed the instructions in the above link - since hard resetting it and upgrading the OS build, it hasn't successfully used the settings in the "access point" configuration page.

I think I've cracked it!
Can one of you try out the following settings:
Mobile network > add mms apn
WAP gateway (URL): 184.108.40.206
WAP gateway port: 8080
MMSC (URL): http://mms.virginmobile.co.uk/
MMSC port: 8002
Maximum MMS size: 300
Let me know how you get on...

Hi Tried those settings and they do not work. I have had a virgin tech guy on the phone for the last 2 hours, have input the settings over a dozen times and finally done a hard reset and guess what? Still does not work. Can someone please crack this soon as it is letting down an otherwise good phone.

It's not working at all now and I haven't changed the settings since my previous post :(
Now it shows "Can't send message Try again", regardless of whether I apply or reactivate the "access point" setting.
I'm encouraging friends to use WhatsApp where feasible.

I've spoken to HTC personaly after the same issue with MMS settings. They wont give them to me but they have said that Virgin are aware that on windows phones there is a certain way to enter the :8002 as the phone wont accept that part of the setting.
Of course Virgin deny all knowledge of this problem.

I know this thread is a bit old now, But incase anyone is running into the issues still.
I had a similar problem with my Lumia 800 with Virgin, could use everything else except receive MMS from anyone. Changed APN, used network set-up, diagnostics tools etc... and still nothing. Kept getting the get media content here (website) blah blah with the code. Instead of receiving the MMS normally on my phone.
The way I solved it was to send an MMS (text with pic attached) to myself. i.e. from MY phone to MY phone.
This apparently enables MMS functionality with a new SIM. Sometimes the new SIM which hasn't sent an MMS before isn't configured to receive them or some BS.
Sending it to yourself apparently works, it might require a phone restart aswell.
Hopefully this helps anyone in the same situation
