    Red Pocket GSMA picture MMS ?

    Ported from ST to red mobile, using GSMA (ATT). Found out with an IPhone I can no send or receive MMS picture messages. Called in to RP and they stated nothing that can do. I’ve tried using some other APNs without success. Anyone else have any solution? I’ve searched and read some other posts on different sites also. I already paid for the 360 day 10gb a mo. Plan but without mms picture will have to loose my butt and switch to another provider (I send and receive picture mms messages daily) as I own a car dealership.

    Yes, unfortunately this is a commonly know issue with most ATT MVNO's. They refuse to pay Apple the required fee (ransom) to gain proper APN setting access. iMessage will still work, but not sure if you can use that to send massages to Android phones? Not sure if a 3rd party messaging app like Talkatone would provide a workaround?

    Another alternative is to use Red Pocket Sprint. You will only have access to native Sprint signal (no roaming), so this only works in areas with good Sprint service.

    Either switch to the Sprint network on that RP plan, or request a refund. "2.We want you to be delighted with your purchase of this prepaid service.

    Regarding picking another AT&T MVNO, the TF-related MVNOs that offer AT&T, and Pure TalkUSA, are set up to fully support iPhones on the AT&T network.

    Good point Boz!! Hopefully the OP hasn't used much data or made many calls.

    The OP could always ditch the iPhone and go Android.
