    Here are the correct settings. I figured it out.

    Data:

    APN: tfdata
    u/n:
    Pass:
    Proxy server (url): mms3.tracfone.com
    Port: 80


    MMS:

    APN: tfdata
    U/N: (blank)
    Pass: (blank)
    WAP Gateway: mms3.tracfone.com
    WAP gateway port: 80
    MMSC: http://mms-tf.net/
    port:80
    Max MMS size: blank
    IP type: IPv4v6

    I also ran HTC's connection setup App on StraightTalk, and I updated to GDR3 via the developer preview.

    Do you have an AT&T or a T-Mobile SIM from Straight Talk?

    If you have a Nokia install access point, I had the same problem and it's fine now

    Darren,
    I can't get my MMS to work right either. I can send pics but cannot receive them. I have a Lumia 920 with a Straight Talk AT&T 4G SIM, i have installed Access Point, but i can't get it to work. Can you help please? My APN settings are as follows:

    -Internet APN-
    Access Point Name: tfdata
    Username: blank
    Password: blank
    Proxy Address: blank
    Proxy port: blank
    Network Type: IPv4v6
    Authentication type: none

    -MMS APN-
    MMS Access Point Name: tfdata
    Username: blank
    Password: blank
    Proxy address: mms3.tracfone.com
    Proxy port: 80
    MMSC Address: http://mms-tf.net
    Network Type: IPv4v6
    Authentication Type: none

    PLEASE HELP!

    PS eruptflail - try mms3.tracfone.com in the WAP gateway, or if that doesn't work try 66.209.11.33. Hope that helps!

    Is there any way you could tell me what Access Point put as your settings? I have been messing with this for days to no avail. If you could tell me your settings maybe they would work for me. Thanks in advance.

    I honestly can't figure this out. I'm calling straight talk this weekend and I'm not letting them get off the phone until it's fixed. I have the darkest feeling that it's something on their end.

    My internet is working fine, but my mms is not! I was on the phone with Straight Talk forever! Please help me! I love the HTC Windows Phone 8x. It's really upsetting that I can not send picture messages!

    Try updating to GDR3 and then use the settings I provided.

    eruptflail,

    I see that you've edited your initial post, and I'm curious what your initial issue was. I'm having a similar issue to the one that Quanstan has said in this thread that he is having. On the Straight Talk AT&T SIM, I can send messages, but not receive them. I also can't send or receive messages from email addresses. Is this the problem that you were having? Or was it simply an MMS APN issue?

    Your post says your using an "ATT 820" and this is a thread for the HTC 8x, are you posting in the correct spot?


    But hopefully this will help in some way:


    First your phone does not have to be unlocked to use an AT&T straight talk compatible sim card with an AT&T phone. If you were to use the T-mobile straight talk compatible sim card then it would have to be carrier unlocked. So if your phone is an AT&T 820 and your using the AT&T compatible card then your phone will work, but if your using the AT&T 820 and the T-mobile compatible sim card (or a non-AT&T compatible sim card) then your phone will need to be carrier unlocked.


    Second your settings are more then likely incorrect. As extremely simplified as I can get txt pics (mms) and email messages have two components to them. First both require access to the data network and second is both have specific settings for the respective service. Your email messages (if sent by the outlook or other similar client) need smtp and pop3/imap settings, and your mms messages have other settings.

    Both of these settings need to be correct in order for email and mms to work.

    To help determine if part of your setting is correct lets see if the internet apn is correct. With the wifi turned off see if you use the data network at all (open the browser, go to a website and see if it loads).

    *If the page does not load then you don't have the correct settings in your phone. You will need to find the correct settings and enter them
    *If the page loads then you have the correct internet apn which means your mms specific settings are wrong or incomplete.


    As for the rest of the settings specific to mms and/or email I can not tell you for sure what will work or not. Quoted below are the MMS and Internet APN settings I use on my HTC 8x. I can not say for sure these will work for you since your not using the HTC 8x.

    If they don't work then you will need to check the forum topic specific for your phone or else do some Google searches to gather more information.

    Internet APN
    APN: tfdata
    User name: (blank)
    Password: (blank)
    Proxy server (URL): (blank)
    Proxy port: (blank)

    MMS APN
    APN: tfdata
    User name: (blank)
    Password: (blank)
    WAP gateway (URL): mms3.tracfone.com
    WAP gateway port: 80
    MMSC (URL): http://mms-tf.net/
    MMSC port: 80
    Maximum MMS size: (blank)



    Third if you just activated your phone it might take a day or two for things to work properly. If they don't and you have found the correct email, internet and mms settings (and your using an AT&T phone with an AT&T compatible straight talk sim card) then you will have to contact Straight Talk and request they open a trouble ticket.

    Thanks for providing the mms info. Do I need to have my at&t phone unlocked for my straight talk sim to work for this because I still can't receive or send pics.
    Thanks! :)

    If your using an AT&T compatible straight talk sim card then no you do not need to unlock the phone. You only need to unlock the phone if you plan on using it on a network other then AT&T

    Check your Internet APN and MMS APN settings to make sure they are correct. If you have an Iphone (depending on which one) there maybe additional steps required to get things working.


    If the settings are right (and you have what ever applicable updates are needed for the Iphone) then it maybe a problem that Straight Talk will have to look into.

    Thanks for the info, was having same issues with my 928. Can send and receive MMS no issue.

    I would note for anyone that is having the issue. If you just ported the number it may take a few days. Ported my number on a Thursday and MMS didn't start working till Monday.

    These settings (detailed in the OP) work on GDR3 unlocked devices. It worked on my HTC 8x and my Lumia 925. The device must be a gdr3 device.

    these are my apns for Straight Talk AT&T SIM. I have used the same ones for 5 different windows phones. Restart the phone after you input these. Sometimes they take a 1/2 hour or so to kick in. If it doesn't work, try changing the IP to IPv4. Good luck.
