    Unlocked iPhone 3GS cannot send pictures in texts? (MMS)

    Have had service with T-Mo on this 3GS now for a week or so, the only issue is this phone has problems sending pictures out. So far we've seen no issues receiving them.

    When a picture msg is sent, the top bar will move slowly and indicate "sending" however after a good 30-40 seconds.. it gives up and calls out error.

    The steps I did to set up the iPhone initially were these..
    http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-2383

    Step by step, i've verified many many times to make sure every option/number is correct. And they are.

    Anyone else on T-Mobile with an iPhone (Especially 3GS) that has had issues sending pictures and somehow solved them?

    The phone is Unlocked by AT&T and restored with iTunes to unlock it, then updated to iOS 6.

    It should work. Have been using those settings and MMS has worked for years on the 3gs and 4/4s iphones.

    Call Tmobile and they should help you.

    Thanks for that link, nice to see the My Account app now added too.

    However, we tried once again and it looks like it failed again. I sent one from my Exhibit II to the 3GS and on my phone it showed sent, however the iPhone has not received it yet at all.

    Ill have to call T-Mobile and see if they can help.

    Thanks!

    Just an update, Called Tmo.. they did not help. We ran through the settings but they were exact as the support site said. They had no other things to try.

    At this point not sure what else to try, we can probably go back to AT&T GoPhone seeing as this is unlocked. Still wanted to stay with T-Mobile but no pictures will ever send.

    Anyone have any last ideas to try? I've even tried changing the mms apn settings to the voicestream one I found. But still not working...


    EDIT: Well, looks like its working kinda.. It took forever to send but I finally got it.

    I should probably mention.. I am under the worst of the worst in terms of data speed tower for T-Mobile. GPRS.
