AT&T is what you want. And it will work unlocked as ST uses AT&T network.

I have my Pre3 on ST. Everything is great EXCEPT MMS. I used the settings as put forth by OP and no luck. Played with quite it a bit but no Luck. A couple of posts ago I asked OP to post exactly what he entered in the MMS APN fields. Screen shot would be great. However no reply.
Anyone figure something out please post it here.
Thanks

How many minutes/messages & how much data do you get for $45? (I suppose I could just go to their site!)
Edit: I see it's unlimited & available @ WalFart

Best place for information is the ST forum at Howard Forums. Read and believe everything that is there. If you think you will be able to tether continuously and use a Gazillion Gig. of data you are not a candidate for ST. Read, read again and believe what you read over there. If you use over 2 Gig of data your service will get shut down.
It is working great for me. I am very pleased with ST. I have not gone over 1Gig. and everything is fine.
Unlimited minutes, unlimited messages, free 411. Data though advertised as unlimited is not truly unlimited. Some people have signed up thinking they would stream video, do internet radio and any other use that uses huge amounts of data and have been disgruntled when their service was terminated. It is explained in their terms of service. Again, read, read and read some more on the Howard Forums.

Doing as the link above shows I repeatedly get " Invalid APN MMS setting".
Internet APN is no problem and I have web Browsing. But, it appears as though I cannot duplicate what you have done under MMS APN settings.
Thank you
I am having the same issue. I've tried using the APN setting that came with the SIM and the one that was posted on this forum and I cannot send nor receive MMS. I too get an 'Invalid APN setting' error. I've saved anyway and nothing is working. Bummer.

I have had my Pre 3 since Oct. 2011 and had service with ATT. I just purchased a Straight Talk SIM and the instruction card with APN 'values' didn't work. When I called Straight Talk, they can't help me because they didn't have the manual for my phone. I looked on line for help and found this forum. Unfortunately, for me, it didn't help either. But I did find another WebOS forum that had settings for Straight Talk SIM in a Pre 2. I tried it and it worked.

For the MMS APN:

MMS APN:
att.mvno

Username:
leave blank

Password:
leave blank

MMS Properties:

MMSC = http://mmsc.cingular.com

MMS Proxy = wireless.cingular.com:80

Max size = 600

Then tap 'change settings'


I had to do this a few times for it to work. Not sure why that was. If you can send a MMS, you know you're in business. Hope this is helpful.

My settings are very similar to clakeman's. I'm able to send & receive with no problems.

Internet APN settings...

Internet APN: att.mvno
Username: blank
password: blank


MMS APN settings...

MMS APN: att.mvno
Username: blank
Password: blank
MMS Properties...
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33:80
Max Size: 1048576

Edit (3/29/2012): I started getting "Message Corrupt" failures for outgoing MMS & incoming wasn't working at all. Changed Max Size to 600 & it's working like a charm again!

@ OP, you have to bold that E71 part.

All, the settings work only if you had a Nokia E71 with the settings and transfer the SIM to Pre 3.

I do not have E 71 so these settings are not working for me.

I switched to straight talk recently and had my number ported over successfully. For some reason I can call and text people just fine but neither internet nor MMS seems to work on the phone. Every time I go into the APN menu through the phone app and enter it in, it conveniently forgets these settings. I will enter in all the info given to me by ST (which is the same provided in a few posts back) and then when I exit the phone menu it goes back automatic settings.

I've tried hitting save settings on both the internet and mms sides, as well as pressing setup anyway.

Anyone know what im doing wrong here?

I went through several cycles of re-entering the settings (overriding the error message) and restarting the phone. The settings seemed to "take" after 2 or 3 cycles of this.

Also, there seemed to be slight variation in the recommended settings in this forum. I eventually settled on the settings from the ST Activation card, which are working fine.
