    I can't seem to find it either. I would love some help. I tried to adjust some settings on wireless manager, but still can't get it right. Step by step n00b directions would be greatly appreciated. Have been trying for days.

    1. Go to the Marketplace, tap Samsung Zone, and download Wireless Manager
    2. Once thats installed, open the Wireless Manager app
    3. Go to the apn screen, and tap edit apn
    4. Push the + button at the bottom
    5. Fill out the data as follows: (any fields that I didnt mention should be left at the defaults)
    6. APN Name: MMS
    7. Profile Category: MMS
    8. MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    9. APN:wap.voicestream.com
    10. Auth type: none
    11. Proxy address:216.155.165.50
    12. Proxy port:8080

    Thanks xs2k. I have tried this method before, but it does not work with the new wireless manager. The MMSC field is limited to a certain amount of characters, and the address cannot fit (using a tinyurl does not work either).

    Any other suggestions?

    Just got my focus S, what service did you guys use to unlock yours? I'm looking for dirtcheap and reliable if possible. However lack of MMS isn't a big problem for me, however a fix is welcome, if you guys find anything I'd be happy to hear it!

    That is weird. I just unlocked another Focus S (courtesy of MS Promo) and set up MMS for a friend on T-mobile.

    When you enter in the MMSC field and after a certain # of characters, the phone will pop up 2 notification...press "ok." After that, enter another character and again press "ok" twice. Do this until you're done with the entire field...Got another one to work for me.

    I tried a bunch of websites and cellunlocker.net ($24.99) seems to be the most reliable and fastest. Other sites charges less ($14.95), but I get issued refunds afterwards due to "code not found." Waste of time really...

    Ok, I know the issue you guys are having now. Samsung recently updated the wireless app...I'm still on the old version.

    I FOUND A FIX FOR YOU GUYS!!!

    1. Open Wireless Manager
    2. edit APN
    APN Name: Tmobile US
    Internet (always on)
    APN: epc.tmobile.com
    Auth Type: None
    Click Done

    Now go back to Wireless Manager and check mark "Automatic APN"

    I posted a screen shot of sending a picture to myself.

    Thanks xs2k! I temporarily can't get it to work yet though. With those settings, are all the other fields blank, or the default?

    Thanks again.

    Yes. Whatever I did not list, leave blank or default. Also, erase all your old APNs.

    That was exactly what I did and it worked. Do you have data connection enabled (found in cellular settings)?

    Microsoft promo? Care to clarify? If not I'll probably use cellunlocker when parents add my funds to paypal since for SOME reason it won't accept a regular debit card!

    MS promo, a couple of weeks ago they were giving out free windows phone, no contracts.

    I used cellunlock.net and used a promo code "android50" making it $20. The downside was they took almost a day to give me the code. Maybe they were busy? I've used cellunlocker before and it came in 15 mins, for $5 more it might be worth it.

    I obtained another Focus S through Microsoft "Smoke by Windows Phone" promo and used cellunlocker to unlock the phone for my friend to use on T-mobile.
