    iPhone 4 with Straight Talk, Need help with receiving MMS

    So i have my iphone 4 with straight talk, it is also jail broken. I know I need to have 'tetherme' to change the APN settings, but I can not download Tetherme as i have my phone up to date at 5.1
    However, I downloaded the Tetherme cracked version from SiNful. So I was able to edit the cellular Data Network.

    I have settings :
    MMS:
    apn: att.mvno
    mmsc: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33:80

    I can send/receive normal texts, all phone calls work, along with my 3g data. and I can send picture messages.. But I can not receive.

    Anyone know a fix to this?

    In the Straight Talk Forum they suggest using a T-Mobile sim, which will open up the APN settings on your phone. Borrow one, or get a starter sim from TM, then follow the instructions posted all over that forum for the proper setup.

    Actually, that only works on an iPhone 4S, and he said he has an iPhone 4. This won't work for him.
    Here are the settings I have on my iPhone 4S that work:
    MMS
    APN: att.mvno
    username: (blank)
    Password: (blank)
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33:80
    MMSC Max message size: 1048576
    MMS UA Prof URL: (blank)

    Some have listed a setting in that last line, but mine works fine without anything there. If these don't work for you, search in this forum for MMS UA Prof URL, and I'm sure you'll find that setting that others have used.

    Did you read anything that I wrote? I wrote that I can not download tetherme as it is not compatible with 5.1 ....


    Anyway, I figured it out and it works now.

    yes i did, I realized i had the wrong proxy. i had a period instead of the colon. then it took a few hours, I was receiving about half the picture messages i was getting sent to me, but they all eventually came through within a few hours.

    You cannot use a Straight Talk SIM card to activate an iPhone. The Straight Talk SIM card has a PIN lock. You have to use a SIM card from the carrier to which the iPhone is locked.
