    IPHONE APN PROGRAMMING (Official instructions from ST. Its work for my ATT iphone 4S)

    I was having a hard time finding the right settings to get mms to work on my ATT iphone 4S. I recently got these instructions via email from Straight Talk and it got my mms to work. This will install a new profile on your phone. Before you install the new one I would first delete the old profile and reset my network settings. Also, you may have re-enter the mms apn. I didn't have to but that may not be your experience.

    IPHONE APN PROGRAMMING:

    If you have an iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 or 4S running iOS 4.0 or higher, you may follow the instructions below and we can attempt to update your APN settings.

    4.At this point exit your browser, turn off Wi-Fi, and re-boot your phone.
    5.With Wi-Fi off, access Safari to ensure your data connection is working.

    Please note this will not enable MMS (Multimedia Messaging). To use MMS, you may need to make further changes to your iPhone in order to update your MMS settings. You may search online for more information.

    Installing this will not make your MMS work, just data. And, this is very old news.

    It got my mms to work or at the very least the combination of the new profile and apn settings did the trick. My problem was mainly getting the mms apn settings to "save" to the phone once I changed it. Under the old profile, after I made the change, mms would work for awhile then it would default back to the old settings and stop working. It was very frustrating but now it's been a good while and mms still works.

    And it was news to me. I searched the forums for it before I posted it and couldn't find this info.
