Enabling MMS without jailbreaking on GoPhone (and others) (not tested)

Note: I am not in the USA and have not personally tested this myself but doing similar works with other carriers I have tested. Please let me know if it works for you or any problems. This May only work with an iPhone 4 or 4S as some people show say its not working are using 3G/3GS

There is a method which can be used to enter MMS Settings in but you will need a SIM Card which the iPhone doesn’t have the settings in for. In the US you will need a T-Mobile Sim (or alike) which seems the easiest to get. This same method can be used on other Carriers/Network as well.

- Make sure you can make calls etc via Go Phone sim
- Install US – GoPhone Profile (When connected via wireless) (or US – AT&T – its the same)
- Make sure Data over the Cell network works (see http://www.unlockit.co.nz/unlockit/?p=568 under “Why doesn’t the GoPhone $50 unlimited plan work”)
- Remove GoPhone SIM
- Place T-Mobile SIM in
- Go to Settings -> General -> Network -> Cellular Data Network (this will come up now)
- Swap AT&T sim back in
- Waiting until it says AT&T up the top again
- Now Enter in the MMS Settings (For GoPhone/AT&T) – If you are using another Carrier please check http://www.unlockit.co.nz/mobilesettings for MMS Settings

APN: wap.cingular
Password: CINGULAR1
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: wireless.cingular.com:80
MMS Max Size: 1048576

- Exit by clicking on Network up the top
- Send MMS (and hope it works)

    I have an AT&T IPhphone 4. It has been jail broke, unlocked, given a phone # ,account, service end date all aquired from a Straight Talk package bought at Walmart . It still doesn’t get network service after going to straight talks apn program and to unlockitz. It still says “sorry this device has been blocked from network access” . This iPhone4 Is not able to be programmed manually(apn) . I left out pages of my nitemare getting to this point. I have been able to and am on the Internet writing this through wifi. I have been able to before trying to activate . Great phone just wished it was 100%. 32gigs but no sd card is a minus

    I have an iPhone 4 I am using on Straight Talk and have the picture message issue. I do not have a SIM card I can use to do the swap trick. Is there another way to take care of this issue?

    “Not working” doesn’t say much.. Would need more information on what you are trying/have done etc

    I have unlocked my iphone 4s with a turbo sim and now i want to upgrade it. Will it be locked again or it will work with the newest version of ios. Bcoz i have ios 5 and i want to upgrade to ios 7. Any comments or suggestions plz?

  42. admin
    February 24th, 2014 at 15:10 | #42

    You will have to ask the company/people who supplied you the SIM Card if it will work under iOS7

  43. admin
    February 24th, 2014 at 15:12 | #43

    For New Zealand SIMS yo will not have to do anything as the Main Carriers are all included.
