    Hello any and all,

    Just thought I would post what worked for me after hours of trying to figure out this mms dilemma.

    So, just a brief background....my brand new lumia 635 which is an att go phone I purchased and then bought a Net10 sim card. Initial setup was fine and easy...basic texts, internet worked fine....then I started to realize that no picture messages go either be sent or received, thus the long battle trying to figure out why. Also, as others have noted, please save yourself hours of headache by NOT contacting Net10 service....they are useless.

    Anyway, here is what worked for me field by field for my lumia 635:
    Starting with "settings"
    Go to "cellular +sim"
    data connection "on"
    data roaming "on"
    for limited wifi connectivity "use cellular data"
    go to "sim settings"
    sim name...i made mine "My sim"
    cellular connection profile...only option given to me is "ATT"
    go to "edit internet apn"
    apn: "tfdata"
    user name: "NET10"
    password: leave blank
    authentication type: "PAP"
    proxy server (url): leave blank
    proxy port: leave blank
    go to "edit mms apn"
    apn: "tfdata"
    user name: "NET10"
    password: leave blank
    authentication type: "PAP"
    wap gateway (url): "mms3.tracfone dot com"....ok folks, obviously don't spell out the "dot" here...only way this forum would let me post
    wap gateway port: "80"
    mmsc (url): "http://mms-tf dot net/" .....same thing here....put what you would for the web
    mmsc port: "80"
    maximum mms size: leave blank
    IPtype: "IPv4"

    That's it.....I hope that is of some help

    Thank you so much for posting this! My mom has spent weeks and countless hours on the phone with walmart, net10, and at&t. No one could help, but this fixed it for her!
