    I bought a Verizon Lumia Icon from verizon. text and calling seem to work but I can't seem to get data working. I've been trying to use it on T-mobile Straight talk but can't seem to find the apn settings or the instructions to change the apn any help.

    if you are 8.1, go to settings, cellular+sim, then add/edit internet apn

    Internet
    apn: fast.t-mobile.com
    ipv type: ipv4v6

    MMS
    apn: fast.t-mobile.com
    mmsc (url): http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    mmsc port: 80
    ipv type: ipv4v6

    that's all you need.

    running lumia 930 unlocked via Tmobile. I also work as a Tmobile tech, do this at least 4 times a day for byod.

    Are you using a true 930 or the Verizon Icon? I've waited because of the inability to use mms on the Verizon icon on all the forums.

    I would also be interested to know if the MMS problem is solved. Its the one reason why I held back on buying an Icon

    All you have to do to configure MMS on the ICON is download access point... It then detects your sim settings or can be configured manually.

    I was under the assumption that even with that, MMS would not send with a TMobile sim and correct APN settings. Its all over the forums, but I haven't heard of an update about the problem in some time now. Anybody have an Icon with a Tmobile sim (not a mvno) that works properly or know if the issue is fixed?

    I have the Icon on Tmobile, and just like everyone else I can only send MMS, not receive it. I would really like to get this working. If someone has figured this out, please help us.

    Having been though this with a Samsung ATIV SE (Verizon) that I used on AT&T (MMS and internet sharing not working) I've come to find out that Verizon locks those functions on non-Verizon networks (SIMs) though firmware.
    All of Verizon LTE phones are GSM unlocked, however you're most unlikely to get MMS and Internet sharing working correctly nor LTE, on anything except a Verizon network.

    I'm wondering...will the new unlocking law do anything to affect this MMS lock down?

    Why don't you just buy the Straight Talk Activation Kit for the CDMA. It has the Verizon CDMA Nano SIM card and it works great on Straight Talk with LTE connection and MMS from Verizon. The kit cost $59 bucks and includes all the SIM cards you will need for GSM and CDMA. Did I mention that it uses the Verizon towers and the signal strength and MMS is great with no special settings.

    By the way, the kit also includes the first month's data, text etc. use. Each month after that Unlimited cost $45 for 3.5 GB data, text, calls. Great deal and works great.

    Just a thought.

    Yes, thinking about that. The issue for me is that I am already on straight talk with an at&t sim. My Ativ S is just about dead so not too worried about that. My work phone is a GSM android LG G2. Work paid for the phone but I buy the service. I would not be able to use it if I transfer my phone number to the CDMA Icon. If I could switch the sim card between the 2 like I do now, it would be a no brainer for me.

    Agreed. After the Denim installation and reinstalling everything, I'm very pleased that sending and receiving pictures is something I can do again lol.

    *Anyone have the settings app force close a lot after update???

    What carrier are you using it on? Do you mean I could use my at&t straight talk sim? That would be fantastic!

    I myself am using it on T-Mobile. It will work on AT&T as well.

    Are you using the Nokia apn app or does it allow you to just enter MMS settings in "cellular/sim"? Asking because I currently use an Ativ S and am not familiar with Nokia stuff.

    All Verizon pphones are sold unlocked. To my knowledge, All you have to do (all I did) is insert your sim into the phone and voila, it works. After the Denim update, I didn't have to do anything to the APN'S.

    I'm using tmobile. But I bet you could use it on at&t. Just do a hard reset with your at&t sim in there for best results. The phone will set it up right. I didn't have to do anything to get mms or sms or internet sharing to work. Just keep in mind that it still is a Verizon phone, so it will never work as good on any other carrier. Good luck!

    I heard in another thread that the DP breaks the MMS, so I just bought an Icon for use with TMO and plan to hard reset it with the TMO sim in it and update the normal route.
