    Text APN to 611611. This will reset APN settings, and you will be able to attach photos using TMobile as carrier on straightalk.

They first said my phone didn’t have that capability, then they said I needed to do a factory reset, then this last one he work on things for an hour and finally said Samsungs from Verizon wont work on they network. I have tried all the settings here and no luck, any other suggestions?
