    This is after there were some MMS issues that PTEL had to fix in their system. Here is a setting that worked for me on 3/13/2013. My phone is a Pantech burst p9070 and you can try the settings to see if it can work for you. These were settings that PTel sent to me in email.

    Firewall: Make sure you dont have any Firewall apps that are stopping communication for the messaging app. If you're not sure, just turn off the Firewall until you get it working, and then when its working, configure the Firewall correctly until it works again.

    Can delete existing APNS? Its also ok to leave existing APN's, if you cant delete all of them like the steps below tell you to. If you cant delete all of them, you can skip steps 7-10. You just have to make sure the Ptel APN is selected for your message app.

    APN Setting: First look for it within your messaging app. Both stock and market apps should have APN settings. If you cant find it, look for in the general settings area (Settings -> Mobile Networks ->Access Point Names)

    Data on/off: If you usually keep your data off, turn it on before you send an MMS. To receive an MMS, you can receive the text portion of it anytime. For downloading pictures, you will need to turn on data.

    APN selected: After you've entered the APN, make sure it is selected. (see this demo picture to see an example of how an APN is a selected state)

    I got this new set of APN settings from Ptel. You can try it in case the above is not working. The only difference between my settings above and this one is the "APN type":

    Hello! Here is the APN configuration for Android devices.

    Pull down the notifications screen & tap on Settings
    Tap on Mobile Data (some phones say "more"
    Tap Mobile Networks (some phones have "Access Point Names" here)
    Tap Access Point Names
    Press the menu button
    Select New APN
    APN: Wholesale (CASE SENSITIVE)
    Proxy:<Not set>
    Port:<Not set>
    Username:<Not set>
    Password:<Not set>
    Server:<Not set>
    MMS Proxy:<Not set>
    MMS Port:<Not set>
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 260
    APN Type: default,supl,mms,admin
    If no APN settings are present, a restore to factory default settings may be required.
    An sd card needs to be installed to send/test MMS (HTC Sensation)

    Select Menu and Save
    Go back one screen to the APN list and tap on the dot to Enable the PTEL Mobile APN
    To set homepage open browser > Menu > Settings > General > Set Homepage to “”
    Restart phone & you're set!
