i bought a lumia800 from amazon and it turns out to be a german tmobile lumia800, i am able to use it with my at&t sim tho, but i couldnt get my voicemail or use the internet, i eventually used nokia network setup app to configure all those operator specific stuff. so now evrything works fine.
except that i cannot send/recieve mms messages.
can anyone please help me to configure my mms settings or do i just return the phone
The solution is using Network Setup an application which was pulled from Marketplace due to security issues:
There was a workaround mentioned in this thread if device on the latest software, but seems loophole may have been closed and no longer effective solution:/t5/Nokia-with-Windows-Phone/Lumia-Network-setup/m
Happy to have helped forum with a Support Ratio = 42.5
I found 3G/GSM data and MMS to me mutually exclusive functions due to problems with APN setup.
My workaround is to delete my data APN when I want to send an MMS and re-add it when I want to use celular data. Adding the APN is not a big problem as I only have to enter the name, it's a bit of a nuicance though.
My original details are here:
Hope this helps.
This problem is now solved for me.
The latest firmware (12070) and the latest Network Setup app (126.96.36.199) creates the correct APN settings (internally) for MMS and Data.
Just searched and found it straight away.
Open Marketplace on your phone and then tap 'Nokia collection'.
Hope this helps
That must mean the app is not available in my region, i.e. the United States, because myself and a bunch of other American users can't find it (check the WP Central forums for instance).
Nokia is starting to remind me of Apple with this kind of limiting b.s.
Seriously, this is VERY frustrating.
I have the same issue with my unlocked german lumia 800. I have t-mobile in the U.S. I have contacted t-mobile and nokia...no success
I have a lumia 800 bought new unlocked, inserted virgmobile sim and in network setup i changed my operator from the default t-mobile to virgin mobile and added their apn settings.. big mistakes 1&2. couldn't send or receive. spent some time and did a factory reset, resisted temptation to change setting( leave them as factory set) and sent 2 test mms pics to my own and wife's mobile and it worked.
