Not receiving MMS on my unlocked USA bought Samsung S5

Message 1 of 7 (671 Views)

Have a Samsung S5 unlocked phone I bought while living in the USA. Ever since I've been on networks (2 degrees and vodafone) here I have been unable to receive or send MMS.  Have been into the vodafone centres but no answers.  Have recently seen a similar question on google and person was told it could be their APN on their phone.

 

Have gone to mine and looked at the settings for APN 

APN vodafone

MMSC not set

MM proxy not set

MM port not set

 

are these missing information?

 

Cheers

Hi there. Vodafone is the APN used to access the internet

 

For MMS you want live.vodafone.com

 

These should work for you: http://community.vodafone.co.nz/t5/Mobile-broadband/Read-Me-Vodafone-NZ-APNs/m-p/108036/highlight/tr...

Works on *most* phones but can't be garaunteed with devices purchased overseas.
