MMS and Data Connections

Hi Communities,

Hope i post this question in a right forum.


Im new to Lumia Phone, just bought a Lumia 620 last week.

So far im loving the phone and my eager to get a Lumia phone succed.


Cut to question, do we need Data Connection turn on to sent MMS?

Unlike other Nokia phones runnig Symbian, data connection will be automaticly turn on when we sent mms. Can we do the same with WP8 Lumia?


Default access point cant be edit so i created a new one refering to setting for Symbian and Android, but still no luck, i cant sent mms from my lumia.

Yes, you do need to have mobile data switched on for MMS to work. There shouldn't be a need to edit MMS settings because the phone should read all the correct settings from your SIM card and add them to the phone. Also, make sure the correct access point is active under Settings > Access point.
