If it works in Hangouts then its the APN for sure. Can you not access the APN settings? If youre using a 3rd party messaging app, thats prob the problem. Try "Textra" and also ive heard if you get billed directly instead of using a paycard, that could solve the issue. But just in case you can access your APN settings, try these...

SOURCE: i've got samsung sgh-g600 model.

Hi, the problem you are having is with the settings that are stored on your phone, the chances are these have never been setup correctly and you usually get this problem when you change the sim card in the phone to another sim or another network.

now all you need to do to solve this problem is call your service provider and tell them the 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 anything for doing this and they will send you the settings via text message this will then update your phone to the latest settings and you will be able to use the phone as you want to then.

you can sometimes send the settings to the phone yourself via your service providers web site, but not all service providers offer this service so you would have to check.

the quickest and easiest way would be to give them a call and ask them to send you the latest settings. they will do this for free so just give them a call and your phone will be then set up correctly.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Change the settings. In the main menu tab, under accessibility, uncheck the "power button ends call" This will fix the problem. It allows you to pull down the dial pad.

SOURCE: how to install apn on Samsung galaxy S2

Once in the APN setting page, tap 'Menu > New APN' and fill up the required fields.
In case you happen to not know anything about those details, please, tell me your country and carrier. I would do my best to fetch those settings for you.
Anyway, please, let me know if you need further informations.

Changing towers

The only way to change to a different tower is to change phone AT&T carrier to Verizon carrier. The unlock code is your password. There is no unlock code to change towers. You have to cancel service at AT&T and start service at Verizon.

How to use APN

The first thing you'll need to do is find the right APN settings for the network you want to use. For example below are the APN settings for Straight Talk.
Name- straight talk
MMS Port-80
Once you have all this information, grab your phone. Settings>wireless/network settings. More options>mobile networks.
Once you found mobile network settings, rest will be the same on all devices. Look for "Access Point Names" then tap on it.
You should see a list with at least one APN. Add new.
This is where you will enter the settings you got from your carriers website. 2 very important things here:
    1.Not every setting in the "edit access point" screen will need filled in.
    2.Be sure to type in everything exactly as provided by your carrier. Once you have settings provided by your carrier entered, you need to save the APN. You do that by pressing the 3 dots in upper right and selecting "save" option.
    Once your APN information is saved, go back one screen to the list we saw earlier. On this screen, tap the new APN settings you just entered to make active.

After rooting my S4 it keeps restarting what do I do?

go to recovery by holding volume up, home button and power button from off. when you feel the phone vibrates, release power button only while still holding vol up and home button. once you're in recovery, choose wipe/factory settings by using vol up or down then when highlighted press power button to select it. wait for it to finish then reboot phone. if for some reason its still doing it, make sure your battery is charged enough to make the boot. if that doesn't do it then it might be your power button is faulty (a common problem for most galaxy s3, s4 phones) please read this for more info on rooting.

Bought unlocked galaxy s4 at Walmart and a straighttalk simcard-Ihave no internet service changed apn settings-help

Call the service number to make sure that they have activated internet on it. Just because you have paid for internet doesn't necessarily mean that they activated it.

Apn settings

I have a S4, not sure if its the same but here's what i do to get to APN settings:
First go to settings and tap on the connections tab at the top of the screen. Then tap on "More networks" under the "network connections" subsection. Once there you should see a button for "mobile networks". tap on it and it should bring you to another screen with a button called "Access Point Names (AKA APN). Tap on that and you're there!
Like I said, this is for a Galaxy S4 but I think it would be a similar if not identical procedure for the S3. Hope this helps :)
