    Thanks! These APN settings were the only ones I found that worked for resuming image text capability after I upgraded my old 3GS to 6.1.5 and jail broke it. Lots of advice out there but these settings fixed the problem.

        Hi apnsettings, on my iPhone 5, I can not find where I can change my apn settings, this phone is from Verizon, and I just switched it to straight talk for cheaper service

          Hi Anthony, sometimes it’s locked so that you cannot change it. have you tried doing a reset?

    Could not get the settings to work on my factory unlocked iphone5. I have to use the sim card trick to get the network setting to come up. The default setting are exactly the same as the ones posted except for the MMS UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf so I add that and still no joy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
