    Hi guys,

    I have been going around and around with this issue for weeks. :( Finally, I have decided to throw in the towel and seek assistance.

    I cannot seem to get tethering AND MMS to work at the same time. Tethering, I finally got to work by changing to (in addition to many other things) ipv6 on the APN on the AP (the tethering phone, my s5). But then I cannot send MMS. I have tried several different APN settings, all to no avail.

    I was just curious, has anyone been able to get this working?

    Have you tried the T-Mobile APN?

    the settings are
    APN: fast.t-mobile.com
    MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    MMS Port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 260
    APN type: default,mms,supl
    APN protocol: IPv4
    APN roaming protocol: IPv4

    These are the only settings that don't have "unspecified" "none" or "not set"
    I tether as well and these settings work perfectly for me. MMS works just fine, too. They didn't before when I tried this, but I recently tried it out tinkering with my phone one night and they perform much better than the fast.metropcs.com APN I used before.
