MMS Settings for TMobile iPhone

mms-iphone-tmobileAt long last the iPhone now has MMS capabilities and if you’re on the TMobile network, you too can take advantage of this great feature. After trying so many different configurations, I finally found one setting that works with sending pictures as well as videos..how sweet is that?

To configure your settings, go to: Settings – General – Network – Cellular Data Network. Please note that I’m using an iPhone 3Gs on firmware 3.1.2.

UPDATE – 07/07/2010 – I just upgraded to IOS4 and these settings still work.

Under the MMS settings use the following values:

APN: wap.voicestream.com
Username:
Password:
MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.050
MMS Max Message Size: 1048576 <--optional TMobile MMS setting for iPhone 3Gs



There’s a few of my readers noted that their iphone do not have the Cellular Data Network therefore unable to update their MMS settings. If yours is missing, follow these steps:

1. Open cydia and install winterboard
2. Add source: http://cydia.xsellize.com
3. Search Supreme Preferences 3.0 and install
4. Open winterboard
5. Check it off the supreme preference tab and respring
6. Then go to settings
7. Click supreme preferences tab and go to applications, than go to phone.
8. Cellular data tab: On
9. Click Home, then Settings
10. General – Network – u should now see Cellular Data Network.

If you’re still having problems receiving MMS after completing the steps above, try this video tutorial:

  28. Jon B

    Great tip! I can honestly say that resetting my network settings and rebooting always fixes my MSS issues.

    Thanks for the comment!

  29. Michael

    i am a mobile fans and retailer. We have got many feedbacks about all kinds of mobile phone situation. About MMS setting,it’s easy operated for the most part as long as you do it according to the hint step by step or your user manual. But sometimes it failed to send and receive MMS. you need reset and check the MMS parameter, or go back to factory setting and do setting work again. sometimes it has something to do with your mobile network access. so you need try several times to solve it.

  30. BJLC

    I’ve tried all these ways and can’t seem to be able to recieve other than from myself

  31. Makayla

    I changed my setting on the cellular data network according to the instructions above…but still give me the error: “the media content was not included due to a picture resolution or message size restriction” I can send but cannot receive.

  32. MELL0

    IM 3.1.3 IPHONE 3g!!!!!! i can only send not receive pictures!!!!!!!!!! HELLLLP!!!!!!!

    Search engine optimization (SEO) is the procedure of improving the visibility of a web site or a web page in search engines via the “natural” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”) search effects. Other forms of search engine marketing (SEM) target paid listings. In general, the earlier (or higher on the page), and more often a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine. SEO may target other kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search and industry-specific vertical search engines. This gives a web site web comportment.

    For those who are still looking I found the easiest way to change apn settings: from the iDevice go to http://unlockit.co.nz and follow the instructions.

  56. Tie

    thanks so much .. worked perfectly the first time!

  57. Lisa J

    I downloaded the utility but got confused on what else to do after wards. I couldn’t find the APN settings after configuration profile.

  58. bebe

    i’ve reset network setting rebot the phone and my wifi still will not connect… It used to work fine, until I added the MMS settings… please help I want my wifi and mms…

  59. James

    Robert,
    Yes you must downgrade to 3.1.2 on the 2G and utilize Blackra1n to jailbreak the phone.
    1. Run Blackra1n
    2. Instal Cydia only
    3. Run Cydia as “User” and then install complete updates when prompted.
    4. Open Cydia
    5. Select Manage, Sources then select “edit” on top right then “add” on top left.
    6. Add source: sinfuliphonerepo.com
    7. Once added go back to manage, sources and select the sinfuliphonerepo link and instal the following in this order…
    a. Appsync 3.1.x
    (allows cracked apps to sync with itunes)
    b. Installous (apps for free)
    c. Enable MMS for 2G & 3.1
    d. YourTube Cracked
    (you can save youtube vids to phone)
    e. SIManger
    (iPhone by default does not save your contacts to the SIM card. This tool allows you to save up to 250 to your SIM Card. Great back up plan and also great for those that do not utilize iTunes to backup)

    Hope that helps!
    Best,
    James

  60. Evan

    Thanks sooooo much. I tried everything to get the MMS button to come back after the jailbreak but nothing worked except this. All good now.

  61. Lisa

    Yes i have. I can send pictures, but I can’t receive them

  62. Jon B

    Lisa,

    Have you tried Alex’s method below?

  63. Lisa

    This does not work for me. I have tried everything.

  64. Jon B

    This one sounds promising, has anybody else tried it?

  65. Jon B

    If you don’t see the Cellular Data Tab, my best advice is to restore the phone via Sn0wbreeze or Pwnage tool.

    Another alternative is to go into Cydia and install the Legacy Carrier Bundle.

  66. Chelsea

    has anyone found a fix for this? i too have the same problem. i can not use my internet except for on wifi and the only option i have on my cellular data is toggle on and off. please help.

  67. Lisa

    I’ve been trying to recieve MMS as well… yesterday my brother configured my 3gs 4.0 and i was able to send out, but not recieve.. then the next day the icon was gone and we don’t know what happened to it.

  68. Alex

    Let me tell you how I solved the problem:
    1) Download a program called: Iphone Configuration Utility and install it in your computer.
    2) Once installed click on Configuration Profiles then where says “Action Point Name” or APN enter epc.tmobile.com and where says Access Point User Name I entered the same.
    3) Click in Mobile Device Management and where says Server URL and Check in URL enter epc.tmobile.com
    4) Click on Devices then Configuration Profiles and where says tmobile click on install then sync your iphone, didn’t happen at the first time but I leave my phone connected to the computer and after a while I saw finally the Cellular Network Network, where you also need to enter on all the places where says APN: epc.tmobile.com and finally works.

  69. Alex

    Let me tell you how I solved the problem:

  89. Teerim

    I’ve change the settings a few times, but it just doesn’t seem to work. I know this post is kind of old, but I see you updated it for iOS4. Can I ask if you have a data plan on your phone if it works? I have no data at the moment, and I want to get it working on the 3 iPhones on my family plan of which 2 do not need data.

  90. Jon B

    It should be the same for IOS4, I just tried it and it works fine.

  91. karla

    do u know how to enable mms on an iphone 3gs unlocked on sn0wbreeze running on ios4?

  92. lee

    i can unlock 3.1.3 and 4.0 but i am in arizona

  93. Jon B

    Right now there is no unlock available for firmware 3.1.3. Stay tuned to this blog, I’ll post the instructions once it becomes available.

    I have an Iphone that is factory unlocked but not jailbroken.Does this work for Iphone’s that are not jailbroken. I’m with T-Mobile.

  97. Joey Florida

    Jailbroken WIFI Fix!!! This works perfectly. You need to go to cydia on your iphone and follow the PUSH FIX directions. It works prefectly. I’m not good with all the tech stuff and I was able to get my wifi working with ease. Once you install the Wifi fix app, you can always go back and fix your wifi by hitting the app button if it ever goes out again! Good luck…… Heres the link to the directions http://www.redmondpie.com/fix-blacksn0w-wifi-youtube-gps-problem-on-iphone-3.1.2-firmware-9140085/

  98. Jon B

    Remove the values from MMS Max Message Size.

  100. Jason

    U…R…the BOMB!!! Thank u so very much kid! I’ve tried EVERYTHING in all combonations for awhile now and this one finally worked! The writen one not the video.

  101. Jon B

    You can resolve your WiFi issues by resetting your network settings. Go to Settings – General – Reset – Reset Network Settings.

    This will reboot the iPhone, once it’s up first check and see if WiFi works. If it works, then start changing the MMS settings.

  102. Likeitsidewayz

    Does anyone have any problems with wifi after this installation? I’m not sure why wifi no longer connects. Please Help!

  117. Mike

    Hi,

    Is this procedure for a jailbroken, unlock iphone on T-Mobile’s prepaid plan also?

    Or does a person on Tmobile have to be signed up with a data plan? thx

  118. Jon B

    Not really sure…it should be on there by default. You might want to try resetting your network settings by going to Settings – General – Reset – Reset Network Settings.

    Reboot the phone afterwards and check the the APN again.

  119. joe

    hi thanx,

    but that i know already
    but it’s not shows over there
    basicly i dont have it on the menu
    is there any way to add it?

    tnx

  120. Jon B

    APN Settings can be found under Settings – General – Network – Cellular Data Network.

  121. joe

    hi,
    ive got 3gs 3.12
