Default Straight Talk (T-Mobile) APN settings for MMS on (T-Mobile) Galaxy Note 2

Wanted to see if anyone has found the best APN settings for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 on Straight Talk T-Mobile. Getting MMS has been a problem for me. Thanks.

also, I just ported my number from Straight Talk ATT to Straight Talk TMobile and my account still says "port in progess"....so Im wondering if that might have something to do with it....internet works fine...just not mms.

From my experience MMS won't work if you are on wifi.

Thank You,

Ill play around with that. I have heard sometimes when you port from ATT straight talk to Tmobile Straight talk some of the features take a while to kick in so im wondering if that might have something to do with it also. Did you just use the same settings Straight talk provided?

Att and Tmobile have different APN settings. They should have provided you one with your Tmobile sim card. If not then you can easily Google it.

Thank You Very MUCH!!! It's just good to know if/when someone finds "better" settings for the APN other thank the ones that were provided by Straight Talk...

That's basically the same settings on Tmobile straight Talk that they give you. Except for apn I put in straight talk and everything works just fine for me. I hope it works for you either way.

OH i definitly tried those settings I just encountered a problem with MMS when those reccomended settings were inputed....but I think part of the problem was the fact that I had just ported my number from Straight Talk ATT to Straight Talk TMobile. I thinik the MMS features get delayed a bit during this proces.....might be good to konw or keep in mind if anyone is trying to port Straight talk ATT to Straight Talk Tmobile or vice versa..

Use these and in apn type you want default,supl,mms
Make sure there are no spaces sometimes it puts in a space automatically after the commas. The spaces prevent sending and receiving pictures
