    :(

    Hi all,


    Has anyone managed to get mms working on their Hero - on 3 network in the UK?

    I have tried every combination of APN settings I can find online.

    So far no joy.



    Any help is appreciated :)



    Bill - loving his hero :)

    Have you tried actually Ringing Network 3 and asking them to activate MMS on your account.

    Thats what I had to do when i was with them Years ago , apparently MMS is off by default. So you could have the right APN but its not sorted at Network Level.

    Worth a try!

    cheers carl,


    i'll give that a try.

    I have been a THREE customer for about 5-6 years but i'm not a user of mms so maybe i've never had it.


    cheers


    :)

    An MMS is a Picture Message, right? I've sent one successfully. I'm using a 3 PAYG SIM that had never been used before. The APN settings appeared automatically when I first put the SIM in. I haven't changed anything. There are 2 APNs: once called "3 Services" which I assume is used for phone and internet; the other is called "3MMS". The entries are:
    Name: 3MMS
    APN: three.co.uk
    MMSC: http://mms.um.three.co.uk:10021/mmsc
    MMS proxy: 217.171.129.2
    MMS port: 8799
    MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
    MCC: 234
    MNC: 20
    APN type: mms

    This got me stumpted for ages.

    If you are getting something like "unable to download" message - it turned out that I turned off "mobile network" and any mms I receive will fail to be downloaded for some reason.

    If thats the message you getting, simply enable "mobile network" and try again. It worked for me, but not sure why!
