    Very cool.

    I read that it had kicked in for some so I deleted all threads, soft reset and test by sending an MMS to myself...

    Success!!!

    Definitely some glitch in the code carrier side. Glad they squashed the bug.

    It would be interesting to see if iPhone users had the same issue.

    Will ask a coworker I know with an iPhone who uses ST when I get to work.

    Fyi, My son and I are both receiving inbound mms again.
    Ditto. Starting working sometime this morning for me.

    And for those keeping track, this was definitely an issue on Straight Talk's end. I never changed any of my settings. I never sent an MMS to myself. I never even restarted my phone. I just magically started receiving MMS messages this morning with no effort on my end.

    Glad it's fixed, and hopefully for good.

    yes...iPhone users too . Going back and forth with ST last few days; they of course won't admit to problem. In fact, their customer service person on chat with me said "The feature is not supported". Complete absurdity, they are lying through their teeth. And it is not fixed yet as of this morning

    I wouldn't say they're lying; it's more that they have no clue what is going on. Plus, the ST/Net10 CS reps don't seem to know English very well. They might not even totally understand what you're saying.

    The reason I switched to GoPhone when I decided to leave Net10 is because I could go to an AT&T store and get the same service an AT&T postpaid customer gets. Although I am techy and do most of my own work, I am helpless when it comes to carrier network problems.

    It also affected BB10 devices. I have not been affected so far, but have spoken to someone that was, and for him it was a Lumia 635 and multiple BB devices.

    Wife and moms phone working now. Looks like it was on ST side. Oh well, saving another few bucks by switching to cricket. I like how their APN settings are automatic even on the BYOD plans. Take care everyone. Thanks for contributing!

    I'm very glad to hear that MMS is working again for most people! Mine however STILL is giving me problems. I receive a message now when someone sends me a picture, but it just says "Get Media Content" but when I try to get it, it just loads and loads never downloading the picture itself. I have deleted all threads and reset my phone, with no help. Any suggestions?? Thanks again to everyone here.

    Customer Service is not what it should be from ANY of the cellular service providers, this isn't an excuse in ST"s favor, but a slam against all of them.

    As far as signal quality, I don't see how you could notice a difference, since it's the same towers, leased from Verizon/Att/Tmo/Whoever and the only difference is a ST sim in your phone ?

    I've personally experimented with two verizon phones, three tmo phones, and now four att phones on the ST networks for each. There was no difference at all in cellular service between the big carriers' service and ST's, other than the price paid monthly. I settled on a nice rugged ATT branded phone, with a straighttalk sim, and have enjoyed LTE since, without issue.
    AT&T is leasing the extra bandwidth on the tower, if there is high traffic on the tower, guess who is 2nd tier for that bandwidth, not the AT&T customers. We lost all lot of our lte signal while on ST. If the service works well for you, I am grateful for you. We live in an urban neighborhood that doesn't have the greatest cell coverage to begin with, but it got noticeably worse while we were on ST. My wife would lose calls in the basement all the time, but doesn't lose them (mostly) on AT&T.

    Just our personal experience with ST.

    yep, i can dig that being a problem.

    so far, I've not seen a slow down in testing vs friends on the mother networks.... typically a faster phone will have faster data rates, but I'm usually getting a very similar rate.

    this is pretty typical:

    This was a very specific error on the carrier servers when they updated their system for the amount of data a plan gives customers.

    Can you send MMS but not receive? That was our issue here... If you can send but not receive contact your carrier, your settings must be correct else you could not send. The issue is carrier side.

    If you can NOT send or receive you need to update your MMS settings. Look up your carrier here: World Wide Mobile Phone Settings (sorry - there are many flavors of O2 {uk} so I can't just list values)

    On your phone go to Settings > cellular + SIM > SIM settings .> edit MMS APN and input the values from the linked site.

    I've already fixed an MMS issue by sending an MMS to myself. It worked; I have no clue why!
    Wow, and here I thought I was having an issue with Windows Phone 10. Or maybe I was, but anyway, sending an MMS to myself made a lot of prior failed MMS messages downloadable. Before it would just say "media content in this message", and download would fail. Now they came back alive. Also previous messages that seemed 'solo' became part of a group. Maybe some group texting flaw borks the system? Either way, thanks!!!

    This does not work for my Lumia 640 LTE with T-Mobile sim on Straight Talk. :(
    I tried the suggested settings posted by RumoredNow but no joy.

    I have not been able to receive MMS messages since I bought it in July. I can send them and surf the internet, but get the stupid Get Media Content message when I receive a message.

    Please help!

    I GOT IT!!!!!!

    For Straight Talk with T-Mobile, use these settings:

    For Internet, just put wap.tracfone for APN and save.
    For MMS:

    APN: wap.tracfone
    WAP Gateway: 216.155.165.40
    WAP Port: 8080
    MMSC: http://mms.tracfone.com
    MMSC port: 80
    Max MMS Size: 10485
