One item at a time :-)
3G/4G "flipping" --> This is normal. 4G is only used when your phone needs to send data. So to conserve power and bandwidth, it stays in 3G until an event requires it to switch to HSPA+ mode (aka 4G). On my N5, I also see LTE/4G/3G. The switch between LTE and 4G is because LTE is not officially implemented in my area yet... but by what I am seeing, this might be soon.
MMS messages --> It works on my Google purchased N5 (I just sent another picture that was converted to MMS). By the way, I use the built-in Google "Hangouts" app to exchange SMS and MMS messages.
- APN is set to T-Mobile GPRS, "fast.t-mobile.com"
- MMSC http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
- MCC is 310
- MNC is 260
- APN Type is default,supl,mms
- APN protocol is IPv6
- APN roaming protocol is IPv4
Did you get the MMS working?
Yes, it is working now. Thanks for the info and help from flashfox
Andrew - I am having the same issue as the one raised here (and am also a TMO employee). When I go to the APN settings, they are greyed out and I am not allowed to change anything. I spent 30 minutes with TMO tech support who couldn't figure out anything. Do you have any other ideas? When I go to the APN access points, there are two: T-Mobile Data (fast.t-mobile.com) and T-Mobile MMS (fast.t-mobile.com). But, everything is greyed out when I go into either one so I can't make any changes.
Glad we could get this great device up and running! If you find you have any other questions please let us know!

I have an T-Mobile Flip Phone.
Here are what my settings look like:
- Set Name
- Access Name
- Auth Type
- User ID
- Home URL
- Proxy Address
- Linger Time (sec.)
- Advanced Settings
They are blank though. I need the information to fill them in.
