Not necessarily, NanaMcD. As long as you have enough signals or service on the phone then you should be able to receive the incoming picture messages automatically. Therefore, make sure you have at least 3 signal bars on the phone to send and receive picture messages with no problem. We hope this helps. Thank you.

Ok, now I am very confused. Earlier you said to be sure and exit browser properly to not use data, how do I exit properly after each mm?

Do I need to keep the 3g turned off unless i want to send or receive a mm.?

Will the system automatically turn 3g on when I receive a mm?

Is there somewhere that I can read about all of this in simple terms?

Hi NanaMcD. You don't need to turn the 3G on and off because it must be turned on at all times. You should be able to send and receive picture messages on the phone with the 3G turned on. We need to take this issue offline so I can address it further. I will contact you directly with a private message. Thank you.

Hi Rhughes2012. My name is Straight Talk Sophie. Sorry that you’re having a problem. Your phone must be unlocked or jailbroken in order to update the APN settings for the MMS feature to work. For further instructions, please refer to your phone’s user manual or call your phone’s manufacturer. Thanks.

I've had straight talk with my iphone 3gs for a month and everything was working fine. On the 9th I couldn't send pictures but I could receive them. I just added a new card thinking maybe I can out of data or something but I still can't send mms messages. How can I receive them but not send them? Can someone help me.
