Thumbs up How to setup Verizon Wireless APN Settings for MMS

I can't believe this hasn't been stickied but this is how to apply the APN Settings to most ROM's that are Android 4.0+. Most ROM's have this information already baked in, some do not. I created this little tutorial not only for people that are new to this, but also for veterans who need a quick reference for the actual settings. Can we please get this Stickied?

APN Settings for MMS

1. Goto Settings
2. Under Wireless & Networks select "More..."
3. Select "Mobile networks"
4. Select "Access Point Names"
5. Press the Setting soft key
6. Select "New APN"
7. Select "Name" and enter "Verizon" and select "OK"
8. Select "APN" and enter "internet" and select "OK"
9. Select "MMSC" and enter "http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms" and select "OK"
10 . Press the setting softkey
11. Select "Save"
12. In the APN screen select your new "Verizon" APN
13. Finished

Current Device
Motorola Atrix HD
