Many people have issues with sending and receiving MMS’es on iPhone. The internet connection (3G) works but MMS’es doesn’t.
THIS TUTORIAL IS FOR O2 UK PAY&GO USERS
To get working multimedia messages on iPhone you need to send a free text message to number 2020 containing “ACTIVE“. You will receive a SMS with a link to download and install settings – you will need a WiFi connection to do that.
When you have installed the settings send another free text message to 1010 with content “MMS” – this will activate the MMS’es.
Optionally you can enter the settings manually in settings–>general–>network–>cellular data network:
MMS Proxy: 188.8.131.52:8080
MMS Max Message Size: 2097152
This settings works on iPhone 3GS OS 4.1 and iPhone 4 OS 4.3 and should work on all other iPhone’s (4S) on OS’es above 3.0 .
Enabling Data Roaming can also help (settings–>general–>network).
