    I have restored my iPhone to factory settings and the issue still exists. I also have a few other issues and they still exist after the restore as well. The only thing I can think of is to upgrade to the iPhone 4S or 5. =\

    Does the iphone 4S use a smaller micro SIM than the Iphone 4?  Maybe I'll pick up one used.

    Same micro SIM card for the iPhone 4 & 4S.  iPhone 5  uses smaller nano SIM card.

    The same as iPhone 4. That's why I'm leaning towards the iPhone 4S. I'd hate to get one since my iPhone 4 isn't slow or anything, but these issues are quite annoying.

    I know at least 5 people with iPhone 5 (on AT&T) who have no problem with MMS.  This is a very  limited, and I suspect carrier related issue.

    I suspect it's effecting iPhone 4 users and not 4S or 5 users.  Is it Apple's way of forcing an upgrade?

    I'm having the exact same problem. I'm on my iPhone 5 using iOS 6, and I can't send or recieve MMS unless it's through iMessage. I've had this problem since day 1. This also happened in iOS 6 on my iPhone 4S the day before the iPhone 5 went on sale. It's iOS 6 that broke MMS, not the new iPhone 5. I even tried deleting my APN, full iTunes restore, turned off and on my iMessage, and resetted my network setting. I'm running out of ideas..

    Yeah, I'm an AT&T GoPhone user. I bought the phone right out for $700.00. My MMS worked just fine though on iOS 5.1.1 on my iPhone 4S. My data works just fine on my iPhone 5 iOS 6.

    My best friend has the iPhone 5, and he's on a contract. I'll definitely get back to you later tonight when he gets off work. The APN does work though, because it makes my data work.
