    Problem with getting MMS on Straight Talk AT&T phone

    Hi, I recently set up my unlocked AT&T iPhone for Straight Talk. It went off without a hitch and was very simple to do. Now my problem is I can't get MMS (picture messages). I downloaded ibackupbot and adjusted the code (which I found in the Howard forums step by step instructions), but it won't back up. So I jail broke my phone and downloaded iFile from Cydis and adjusted the same codes. Still no luck. Does any have any suggestions for me? Besides not having MMS, this has been working out great. I appreciate any help or suggestions!

    My guess is it's related to the present data issue

    (edit removed the mistakenly directed rudeness, with apologies)

    I think you are bashing the wrong person. This is the OPs first post.

    Oh, whoops, my apologies. cooter55 is being a moron in another forum and I saw his post here. Don't bother reading what he says because he's either completely unintelligent, or a 9 year old kid.

    I just joined this forum and have never bashed anyone on it...my problem is that I am unable to send or receive picture messages, which I have always called "mms" maybe my wording is wrong?

    Not sure. Either way, I'm just looking for some help, no need to be rude thanks

    Have they ever worked? IF no, then follow the directions and it'll work fine. IF yes, there's likely an issue affecting you, like the present network BS at ST

    Yes, MMS has worked in the past, but it hasn't worked since I switched over to straight talk.

    Did you download and run tetherme and edit your MMS settings? What are your MMS server settings?

    I've downloaded iBackupbot, which wasn't helpful. Should I download tether me to my computer or to my iphone?

    Also, unrelated, I can't even seem to figure out how to change my profile picture on here! And I'm not THAT computer stupid. Weird.

    Yes, as the instructions state, you do need tetherme (or one of the other methods). I can't help with the profile pic. I think mine is the default still after 10 years here, haha

    No, it's in Cydia. I don't mean to be rude, but the questions you are asking indicate you didn't read and follow the directions in the sticky. Please read, let us know how it goes, and we can help if needbe
