This WP7 issue most likely exists because they forgot to bake the ability to edit MMS apn settings into the settings.

Because I'm a tinkerer and frankly this issue bugs the **** out of me, I'm considering reflashing stock ROM rolling up to Mango and then trying this before doing anything else. I'm sad like that. :S

Honestly that really wasn't the issue, I got the folder created by deploying Heathcliffs file. I then followed the rest of the instructions but it still wouldn't work. I did find another thread on xda with a different set of instructions to get the MMS working. I may try that after a reflash.

Ok so something a little strange happened after I got data working. I tried DL an app over 3G, but it gave me a "Windows Live service unavailable". When I try over wifi, it works. I've read a few things about the error, but it just seems strange. I saw someone suggest that it might be that the connection is slow, but from my test on mobilespeedtest.com I'm getting somewhere between 2-4mbps dl speed.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR THIS! After about a month of trying TONS of different procedures, YOURS came through. This procedure worked perfectly on my unlocked Samsung focus using straight talk. I can now send and receive MMS perfectly! I did have a tiny bit of trouble trying to get the .xml file to show up in my phone but I finally got it to work. So thank you so so much for this man. Appreciative.:lol:

Hey fatclue! Just wanted to let you know that I figured out that it IS the custom ROM that's stopping this provxml file from taking properly.
Long story short, a work colleague bought a Focus and is using it with H2O. She was also having the issue that she could not send MMS.
I persuaded her to let me windowbreak and deploy the Straight Talk provxml file and then try sending a MMS with my SIM inserted. It worked without a hitch!
Interestingly, as H2O also uses the ATT network it meant the settings also worked when she put her SIM back in!
IT WAS A DOUBLE WIN!
So guess who's going to be flashing his phone back to stock and going the windowbreak route? LOL.
Anyhow, I'm going to let voluptuary, the maker of the custom ROM know as there has to be something that's stopping this.
But to you sir, I say thanks a million!

You don't get an option to download and save it. Once you tap it and it opens, there's a copy saved in the 'Volatile' folder that fatclue mentioned. Copy and paste it from there to the provxml folder and apply it via the GPRS setting menu in the Diagnosis App.

Ok, i've spent 3 straight hours trying to get my newly, straight talk activated samsung focus to send/receive MMS. I've done everything right up until emailing the straight talk xml file to my phone. What does that mean? My phone is setup with a gmail account so i emailed the file as an attachment to that email address. I could open it and look at it, but it would not let me save the document to phone, copy, cut, paste ANYTHING to it. I tried changing registry files to make my phone show up as usb storage and move the xml file over. That didn't work because I can't find it anywhere in the file explorer. I copied and pasted it into Wordpad to see if my phone would get the document but it wouldn't move the .txt file into where you said put the xml file. I searched for apps to let my phone view/copy/paste xml documents and had no luck. I really don't know what else to do. This is silly. Please help me out if you can.

UPDATE: This is where I finally gave up. I have straighttalk.xml in the provxml folder. If i tap it to open, it just brings up a black screen. Anyways, it's there. So I went to the *#9908#, selected straighttalk from the drop down box then it starts "Loading GPRS Profile for straighttalk" and that's it. Nothing happens, but the screen keeps turning off eventually. I waited about 5 minutes with keeping the screen on while it says Loading..... then clicked closed, turned the phone off and back on. Still no MMS sending or receiving. How I wished I had paid a little more for a Focus S or Flash or ANYTHING really. I had no idea it would be this much trouble =(

Are you running a custom ROM or just the stock? If your bootloader is already unlocked and you are ready to flash a custom ROM I can show you a post on XDA that got Nokia's Network Setup app working on my Focus to adjust ALL apn settings
