    I have a AT&T Samsung Focus S that I just got from my brother and just switched it to Straight Talk using their BYOP sim for AT&T phones. I can not get MMS to work. I have tried several settings I found on this site and other websites and nothing seems to work. Can someone help me get this working? Everything on my phone seems to work but MMS. My current settings are:

    don't roam
    APN - att.mvno
    user name - blank
    password - blank
    Proxy server/URL - proxy.mvno.tracfone,com
    Proxy port - 80

    Wireless Manager
    Automatic APN - unchecked
    Active APN - AT&T 4G
    Edit APN - Here I have 6 items in this list the names and settings are as follows.

    Profile category - internet (always on)
    APN - tfdata
    Auth type - none
    Username - blank
    Password - blank
    Proxy address - mms3.tracfone.com
    Proxy domain - blank
    Proxy port - 80

    APN name - WPSMOBI.APN
    Profile category - other
    APN - wap.cingular
    Auth type - none
    Username - blank
    Password - blank
    Proxy address - wireless.cingular.com
    Proxy domain - moservices.microsoft.com
    Proxy port - 80

    APN name - internet_line
    Profile category - internet (always on)
    APN - att.mvno
    Auth type - none
    Username - blank
    Password - blank
    Proxy address - blank
    Proxy domain - blank
    Proxy port - blank

    APN name - mms_line
    Profile category - mms
    MMSC (Activated) - http://mmsc.cingular.com
    APN - att.mvno
    Auth type - none
    Username - blank
    Password - blank
    Proxy address -
    Proxy domain - mmsc.cingular.com
    Proxy port - 80

    APN name - softap_line
    Profile category - other
    APN - att.mvno
    Auth type - none
    Username - blank
    Password - blank
    Proxy address - blank
    Proxy domain - blank
    Proxy port - blank

    Then I have one more that is a big long code and it says it is read only when I click on it.

    Can anyone help me out with the settings? Thanks.

    you only need one apn setting each for mms and data(i think). for my old samsung focus S i had to download the Wireless Manager app. you get this in the windows phone store in the Samsung Zone. the link below helped me out a lot. the wireless manager app is pretty straightforward, though. you should probably delete other apn after inputting the straight talk settings.

    screen shots of the straight talk apns on my current phone(samsung ativ s) i think the ones for windows 7x phone were the same. the tfdata apn is the newer straight talk data apn. the mms to use with this is not the "cingular" one i see you listed. for the internet apn you only need to put in tfdata. oops...gave you the wrong link...use...http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/.../...lk-data-and-mm

    i am terrible at explaining how to do something since i usually stumble on a solution by trial and error. if you try the above and have specific questions, please feel free to ask.

    Your phone must be different than mine. I don't see a cellular mms apn on my phone. Those settings might work I am just not sure where I should enter them. Also the link you posted doesn't work, it says it doesn't exist.

    Just remember you can't do anything without getting the "wireless manager" app in the Samsung Zone. Windows 7 phones need this to be able to edit apns

    The article that comes up when you search"straight talk mms prepaid" is really thorough

    Did you get the mms working on your Focus S? If so what settings worked?
