Here is how to make MMS work on Straight Talk ATT with the Nexus 4:

I did not see a thread for this and I had to do some research to get this to work so I made a guide for everyone else. I posted this on slickdeals.net as well.

Settings:

You will have two APN's.

The first APN is for data, calls, normal texts.

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B67yJYeMMoKbZkJPSjJQVUl0cXc

The second APN is for MMS.

I set a single APN per the instructions that came with the micro SIM from Straight Talk (AT&T) and all works fine... No need to set a second APN specifically for MMS.

Based on the blue dot in your first screen shot it looks like you only have the "Straight Talk" APN marked as active...

Are you certain that you actually require both?

No matter what I tried on my Gnex, I always had to have 2 APN's set for MMS to work. Looks like Ill keep the same settings for the N4.

I only need the one but I did remove the proxy so I could use certain apps.
