    I have configured my APN settings to work on T-mobile US but I cannot send or receive MMS only texts. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you!

    Stoo: send yourself an MMS to activate the service.

    Kcs7272: can you use T-mob data apart from MMS? Have you inputted T-mob USA settings as the APN?

    Yes I can use T-mobile edge for the web and apps and I can send and receive text messages. I just cannot send or receive pics. I programmed the APN to wap.voicestream.com and that made it possible to use the web.

    After no help from T-Mobile or HTC I solved it !!!!! Go into APN press menu then enter this info and save:

    Name: T-Mobile US
    APN: epc.tmobile.com
    Proxy: 216.155.165.050
    Port: 8080
    Username: (leave this blank)
    Password: (leave this blank)
    Server: (leave this blank)
    MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.050
    MMS Port: 8080
    MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 260
    APN Type: (leave this blank)

    This will make your internet and mms work but it takes a while for the pic message to send be patient!

    Glad you fixed. So what was wrong with your settings compared to above?

    I assume you've bought a UK Tmobile handset?

    Hi. Thanks for the settings - this helped me.
    Have you tried to get 3G working on T-mobile US? The maximum I was able to get was EDGE.

    You wont make a EU Desire work on anything better than EDGE in the US.

    We use different frequencies for our 3G to you guys

    My device is HSPA/WCDMA: 900/2100 MHz
    As far as I see - T-mobile uses same frequencies in US
