I have a former AT&T unlocked but never jailbroken Iphone 4 on ios 6.1.3.  Everything works great on T-mobile through Walmart Family Mobile except for sending MMS / picture messages.  I have literally spent 3 days trying to figure this out and have tried all the different settings I can find.


Called Walmart Family mobile and they said to ONLY put in this:

APN: epc.tmobile.com

MMSC: mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc


Did not solve the problem.  Anyone using a former AT&T Unlocked Iphone 4 and care to share their Walmart Family Mobile settings with me?

I have made sure all the settings are on, etc., have rebooted, etc.  Nothing.

    MMS is a carrier function.  You'll need to work with the carrier.

    Unforuntnately I did contact the carrier (both T-mobile and Walmart Family Mobile) and they were no help.  Walmart Family Mobile's customer service just gave the two items I listed above and had no clue on anything else.


    I also called T-mobile and they were much more helpful than Walmart Family Mobile but still not able to provide the right settings to help me.  T-mobile said it was an Apple problem and I would need to contact them, which I do not believe is correct - I simply need the correct APN settings.


    I know there are others out there who have had this same problem and been able to fix it, so I am hopeful they see this post.

    Then all T=Mobile back and talk to someone else.

    No problem...


    Also there is no guarantee the Original Poster is still around and the quickest way for an issue/question to receive attention is to start your own discusssion.

    I have a factory unlocked iPhone 4 that I just setup with straight talk. The apn settings they gave me would not allow picture messages to work. After some internet research I found a site with instructions for straight talk & T-Mobile/ Family Mobile. I deleted my straight talk apn profile before proceeding with the given instructions
