How to get correct settings for mms and internet settings on mobile phone

If your phone wont send or receive picture messages then this is due to the mms settings on your phone being wrong, this also applies to having problems accessing the internet on your phone as this to is down to having the wrong settings stored on your phone.

This is a very common problem and usually happens when you change your sim card from one network to another or even changing from contract to pay as you go.

To solve this problem you have 2 options, the first to try would be go to your service providers web site and have a look and see if they have the option where you can send the correct mms and internet settings to your phone, now the only problem you might have with this is that not all service providers have this option on their site, so if you can find this option then my next answer will now solve your problem.

option 2: all you need to do is contact your service provider by phone and ask them to send you the correct settings for mms and internet settings now they dont charge for doing this and they will send you these settings via text message the text will then update your phone to the correct settings and will then solve your problem.

Their is no charge for this service unless you have to pay for the call to your service provider the messages will update your phone as soon as you save the message and then you will be able to send and receive picture messages and access the internet.

Doing either of those will solve your problem

my lg phone won't let met send a picture in text


Hi this is a common problem, the reason you cant send any picture messages is due to the fact your phone has the wrong mms settings all you need to do is call your service provider and tell them what make and model of phone you have got then ask them to send you the latest mms and wap settings.

your service provider wont charge you for doing this and they will send the settings via text message this will then update your phone to the correct settings and it will allow you to send and receive what ever you like.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

phone wont send or receive picture messages


call ATT, mine did this same problem, and it for some reason got kicked off in the ATT system that i didnt have the correct messaging plan anymore. it sounds odd, but it fixed mine. good luck!

you may try a master reset after backing up to your PC if that doesnt work.

Hope this helps! pls dont forget to rate the solution!
