MTN MMS Settings

Postby Mad Dogg » 8th November 2011, 03:21

Dear Zambia,

I have an MTN simcard and a Samsung Galaxy S phone. I managed to get internet working but cannot for the life of me find out how to set up MMS. Even on MTN Zambia's website, they mention MMS is availaible but offer no information on how to set it up with the required settings. Why is it that they advertise such a a service but dont tell you how to use it. MTN South Africa's website has the settings so why not for us.

I went to an MTN store in Manda Hill and was first told that you cannot put the settings on manually and it has to be sent through their computers. I knew this is complete BS since I have set up MMS manually in a few other countries before. I didn't say anything and told them to just go ahead and send it. They said it was sent and I should receive it shortly. This was around 10am. I went home and I never recieved anything the whole day. I went the next day and spoke to the same peson. He said the systems must be down (when are systems in Zambia ever up?)

Now I demanded that they just give me the damn settings. After a bit of arguing that it can be put in manually, someone else wrking there took my phone and changed the APN settings himself. He said it should work now.

This was over a month ago. Still no working MMS. Internet works fine, but MMS is completely dead. I just want to know if it actually works in Zambia so I know if I am wasting my time or not.

Has anyone here actually got working settings? This is really dissapointing from such a big company.

MTN MMS Settings. Hmmm, Mad Dogg, let me leave this one to the experts. I wouldn't even know where to begin. My own LG 1200 is still ticking along. Yes today my phone might not seem like much but in its heyday, my LG 1200 was THE thing. I bought it second hand, but still I felt on top of the world.

All those ip addresses are useless. Look go to your internet settings. When you reach your profile settings press options. the only thing you should type is internet in the profile name section. And you will be able to browse.
