    I'm going to guess you went with the AT&T compatible...

    Call up the dialer pad > tap the upper left for the App menu > Preferences and Accounts > scroll down to Manual Settings and turn that ON > tap Edit Network Settings

    On the APN tab enter tfdata for APN and leave everything else (user name, password) blank. Tap the Change Settings button. If you get an error saying the settings are incorrect, tap Set Up Anyway.

    On the MMS APN tab enter tfdata for the MMS APN. Leave user name and password blank. For MMSC enter http://mms-tf.net and for MMS Proxy enter mms3.tracfone.com:80

    Since there is no spot for Port you have to use colon ( : ) 80 at the end of the MMS Proxy string.

    Max Size, I dunno. Try leaving it at the default of 600. If you get an error saying the settings are incorrect, tap Set Up Anyway. Test MMS by trying to send/receive a text with a picture attached...


    If you have the T-Mo compatible SIM try following that pattern with the T-Mo comp. settings here: Support | NET10 and use the ones for Smart Phone.
    Looks like that worked for my old pre, but on the pre 3 I had to reset and got stuck on the sign in screen. I have not figured out how to get around that yet. When I do I think this thing will actually work.

    On the first use screen... Select Emergency Call if you can by tapping on the "Emergency Call Only" notice or alternatively try typing in "bz" (the keys for #*) and that should call up the dialer.

    Erase 911 from the phone number entry area so you don't accidentally dial it and then you should be able to get into the App Menu (upper left) to change the Preferences and Accounts settings...

    My settings are the same as the screenshots posted before. Everything works for me. The day I activated it I tried MMS right away and it didn't seem to work but it did a bit later. Seems like it just took a bit of time to get up and running. I now send pictures all the time without a problem.

    I just switched to NET10 as well. on the ATT network, and also trying to get mms working. Data worked immediately after making apn changes, and getting H+ (2Mb/s download speeds).

    I'll reboot and see if i can kickstart mms.

    my Veer on Net10 is set up as RumoredNow indicated below in the highlights. i send/receive picture mail and texts successfully, even though it said "invalid..." on setup.

    But -
    you should be getting 4-6 Mbps DL over HSPA+. i hope that improves for you, or you may want to try another mvno.

    tfdata is my apn. H+ symbol comes right up.

    i tried att.mvno. no data, no H+ symbol. you can also try wap.tracfone but that doesnt work for me either.

    well net10 uses a lot of different networks depending on region. I'm in Atlanta metro. but you can test with another att mvno like straight talk and see if it I improves. theres several new ones now too
