The carrier is Verizon and I followed the procedures online for unlocking the phone to be compatible with TMobile. Everything works... alright. The phone drops my service very frequently, quite frustrating actually, but I'm able to get H+ and a few bars of service the rest of the time.
My issue with the phone itself is that I can hardly ever receive picture messages, MMS. I'll get a notification that I was sent one, but my phone won't download the message. When I click the 'Download' button, the phone continuously tries to download the message, but the message never downloads. My problem with this is that the messages aren't large - maybe 100KB+... I've tried leaving my phone on WiFi and using the download booster option, but neither has helped and my phone has been stuck in some loop of trying to download the message.
Here are my settings I put into my access point:
Proxy: Not set
Port: Not set
Username: Not set
Password: Not set
Server: Not set
Multimedia message proxy: Not set
Multimedia message port: Not set
Authentication type: Not set
APN type: default,supl,mms
APN protocol: IPv6
APN roaming protocol: IPv4
Mobile virtual network operator type: None
Is there something I flubbed up on? I've been able to receive a few MMS here and there - able to send out my own and confirm that they've been seen. I've just not been able to receive them most of the time.
Also used both Samsung Messages and Messages+ applications - same problem for both.
