T-Mobile iPhone MMS Settings For iOS 4

Earn a Free iPhone 4S. Click Here!

Many people have been asking for the MMS settings to use for T-Mobile.  This will work on all versions of the iPhone and any firmware.  Whenever you restore your iPhone you lose the settings and since T-Mobile is not an official carrier in the US yet, you will have to manually enter these settings in.

UPDATE: Please add our Cydia repo to find the iPhone MMS Fix for T-Mobile.
Our Repo is  http://beta.leimobile.com/repo/

To install our repository you will open up Cydia. Click on Manage at the bottom. Click On Edit in the top right. Click Add in the top left. Type http://beta.leimobile.com/repo/ and then press Add Source.  Then Click on the LEIMobile source and install T-Mobile MMS Fix.

Once you install the fix you will need to reboot your phone and go into Settings->General->Network-> Cellular Data Network and make sure the APN is correct for both your data APN and your MMS APN. All other settings as seen in the picture to the right should be filled in.

———————————–

You will not have to do anything below if you followed the instructions above.

Our Tmobile MMS fix from our repo will support all iOS 4 firmwares: 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1, 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3 and will most likely work in all other iOS firmwares.  In order for MMS to work on non approved carriers you will have to jailbreak.

If the above fails, go to: Settings->General->Network->Cellular Data Network and enter these settings:

APN: wap.voicestream.com
Username:
Password:
MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080
MMS Max Message Size:
MMS UA Prof URL:

Once you are done just reboot your iPhone and MMS should be working.  If they are not working correctly try these settings:

APN: epc.tmobile.com
Username:
Password:
MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng-t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
MMS Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080
MMS Max Message Size:
MMS UA Prof URL:

Reboot again and MMS should be working on your iPhone.

THESE SETTINGS SEEM TO WORK IF YOU HAVE JAILBROKEN YOUR IPHONE. This is the manual way of applying the settings. You only need to do this if our Cydia repo is not working.

Navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mms_override.plist on your iPhone and edit the file by pasting whats below.  You can download a program like ifile from cydia to do this.

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC “-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN” “http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd”>
<plist version=”1.0″>
<dict>
<key>MMS</key>
<dict>
<key>GroupModeEnabled</key>
<false/>
<key>MMSC</key>
<string>http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc</string>
<key>MaxMessageSize</key>
<integer>1048576</integer>
<key>MaxRecipients</key>
<integer>10</integer>
<key>MaxVideoBitrate</key>
<integer>131072</integer>
<key>Proxy</key>
<string>216.155.165.50:8080</string>
<key>UAProf</key>
<string>http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf</string>
<key>UserAgent</key>
<string>SonyEricssonW800i/R1L</string>
</dict>
</dict>
</plist>

After that reboot your phone, enter the correct APN settings, and everything should work.

  1. ish says

    …. im about to run out of hair to pull (i still have some in my nose, but i hope you can help before i pull that)

    I have an Iphone 3g, OS; 4.2.1 (8c148). BB; 06.15.00, jailbroken once with yellow snow (before all updates) and once with UltraSnow (after updating the OS & modem firmware as indicated above)

    I have tried EVERY possible setting, fix, patch, etc, that i have found with no luck… >:( like i said im running out of hair to pull.

    The interesting part is that though I follow all steps, i still do not even get the icon or any indication on my texts to add photos, or on my photos to send via MMS.

    I am normally persistent enough that i figure out most phone/computer/hardware/software mysteries… this one has got me perplexed.

    The only think i can think of now is to start from scratch using itunes and ignore the phone back up file (so no old strange settings manage to sneak thru).

    Other than that well… perhaps prozac!

    Any ideas and or suggestions are gloriously appreciated (unlike Steve Jobs). Thanks a mil!

  2. john says

    i followed the directions, but i do not get mms.
    i’m able to send them but not receive them.
    i used to get the message that the file was too large, but now i get no message.

    too lazy for shift key

      • Kane says

        YAY!!! thanks for your suggestion! I tried everything and when i turned on the cellular data, i started receiving picture messages someone sent me earlier in the day!. I used epc.tmobile.com on the APN and the cellular data section. Not sure if removing the information the cellular data section would make a difference. I’m just going to leave it alone since it’s working!

  3. says

    I just inserted a t-mobile sim card with data plan on an iphone 3gs, and the internet works automatically, i did not enter the manual settings, i just left it blank.

    so, i think this att and t-mobile merge is starting to take place at least in this matter.

    NO MORE MANUAL INTERNET SETTINGS !!!!

  4. JROD says

    THXS MAN I WAS BREAKING MY HEAD TRYING TO FIX THIS PROB.. IM NEW TO THGE WHOLE IPNONE AND JAILBREAKING..WORK REALLY GOOD …WITH OUT ANY PROBLEMS!!!

  5. Cesar beeee says

    • iphone4 says

      Try editing the com.apple.mms_override.plist is stated above. I was getting that error too until I edited that file and turning on DATA ROAMING. Goodluck.

  6. Jimmy says

    Don’t know if it’s because of 4.3.5 but both sets of settings don’t work with the package installed. Worked fine with 4.3.3 before without any issues and the bottom set of settings. Wonder if the package is compatible with 4.3.5?

  7. Andre says

    Well now i have a problem. I did the manual setting since downloading the fixer will pop an error. I have a 3gs 4.3.3 and I can receive mms ….I CAN”T SEND THEM…it will time out on me…and give me a failure to sent error…HELP!!!!

  8. Aseel says

    Hey! First off thank you, I’m able to send an mms but when I receive one it says “The media content was not included due to a picture resolution or message size restriction.” How do I fix that?

  9. M2 says

    so what exactly do i need to do to send MMS and receive MMS? i’ve been seeing a lot. but 1 set of directions that have been proven to work would be great! thanks in advance

  10. UhhhHmm says

    So I’m using a 4 on 4.0.2, jailbroken and unlocked with ultrasnow on Tmobile. For some reason when I use, or any other method I’ve tried, it ruins my unlock. I install the program, “reboot device” and…hold on…it’s doing something different possibly….okay so this time I did it with “Data Roaming” on…my unlock still works but settings still has no “Cellular Data Network”. I know where it should be, I’ve done this on my 3GS, but for some reason this isnt working for me. Any ideas?

  11. J.Me says

    Ok I read some of these instructions but before I drive myself bald…

    I just got an iphone 4 4.3.5 bb 4.10.01 unlocked with gevey. Unfortunately there is also a tethered jailbreak at this type for 4.3.5. Have few issues here.

    1. Hardly ever gets signal. Have to follow the Gevey instructions which works whenever it feels like it. I cant restart the phone unless I jailbreak tethered (connected from a pc). Can’t get no internet or my mms to work. Found someone on craigslist to work on it. Dude basically robbed me for $90. Still dont have a fully functioning phone. He removed my jailbreak and just left the phone with the gevey. That worked for a day. No MMS and Edge was of and on or “no sim” kept on coming on.

    I resetted the phone to factory settings, installed cydia from redsnow and after 1000 attempts got it to work (no MMS though). The minute that I lost signal, back to square one.

    I dont know what else to do!!!??? This is a waste of a phone. Unless anyone here can guide me with what to do, I guess I will keep my MyTouch and stick to Android.
    Hope I was clear enough, not an apple savvy.

    • Xyberz says

      Is any of the liquid damage indicators red? One is located at the bottom of the headphone jack and the second below the charging port right in the middle.

      I’ve installed a Gevey Ultra on a customer’s iPhone with 4.3.5 and it worked right away with the manual 112 dialing process since it won’t work with a Jailbreak and no 112.

      I have just gotten in programmable Gevey which should work with a Jailbreak and no dialing is required on 4.3.5. I have to program them and test it out.

      Might sound like the Gevey you have is crap. Which version do you have and where did you get it from? Honestly now, doesn’t matter if you didn’t buy it from Apple-n-Berry. If you stick in an AT&T sim and it works fine, then there shouldn’t be anything wrong with your iPhone. Troubleshooting is required in order to find the problem. Just can’t say what it is without knowing more facts.

  12. Fernando says

    Hey I’ve been having problems recently with my Internet and mms. I recently upgraded fro
    4.0 to 4.3.3 and Internet signal comes and goes. I am unable to send or receive. I’ve done the T-mobile fix for mms ios 4 which used to work on before I upgraded. Now I get a could not activate cellular data and safari could not open page no Internet connection. I get a message send failure when trying to send a picture. Has anyone found a fix.

    I’ve tried
    Cellular apn epc.tmobile.com

    MMS apn epc.tmobile.com
    wap.voicestream.com
    Neither has worked when they used to.

    MMSC and rest of options pre-filled with cydia repo.

    Is there a currently problem with iPhone 4 4.3.3 on tmobile. My friends and I are having the same problem I don’t use the gevey sim they do though.

    Can someone help. I’ve call Customer support and no solution.

  14. eddie says

    for the iphone 4 i think it wont work even if you jailbreak it. You need the gevey sim. have u tried the cydia fix? try using that one. add source its http://beta.leimobile.com/repo then T-mobile US MMS Fix.. and install and reboot it then. keep cellular data ON and maybe ROAMING. (try both on, if it didnt work for just cellular data) then it should work.

  15. J.Me says

    ok guys so after many hours of research and troubleshooting, I found these instructions tThere is a solution that is interesting that gets t-mobile MMS working
    I have an iphone 4 running 4.3.3 bb 04.10.01 and this is how I got it to work (tested on 3 devices)

    Step one: go into cydia and add the http://beta.leimobile.com/repo into sources (You must use this source)
    Step two: find the T-Mobile MMS fix from that source and download it
    Step three: Download TetherMe from any source (this is the most important step)
    Step four: go into Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data network and change both APNs to internet2.voicestream.com (if your EDGE doesnt work do not change the APN for cellular data network)

    Step five: If your EDGE doesnt work go into Safari on your device and follow the steps on Unlockit – APN Changer for your iPhone

    After this your MMS should work after a re-boot, I would also suggest biteSMS as if the message fails the first time it will retry on its own, if not you can retry sending manually

    Let me know if this works for you too

    Confirmed: Works on 3GS and 3G thanks to some friends testing it out (Not tested below 4.2 yet)hat finally got my MMS to send and receive!!!!!!!!!!!! At one point I was only receiving. I did get my gevey card upgraded to turbo and was able to get everything else up and running. Hope this can help many of you!! I’m super excited!

    • Joe says

      Hey man, glad it works for you. I’m using similar iOS and baseband and I always get the message: “MMS Messaging Requires Your Phone Number” message that I have to override. MMS works, it’s just annoying have to click through this box every time to send a message! How’d you get around it?

  16. J.Me says

    MANY THANKS

  20. Lucy says

    I did the above and noticed my data and MMS APN are not filled in. Should I manually do that? For now I left it alone. Or should I use the alternative steps below? HELP! For some reason, I can SEND pictures, but cannot GET them. Thanks. -Lucy

  21. Brian says

    k im on 4.3.1 baseband 4.10.01 using tmobile unlocked with gevey sim! I still can’t send or receive picture text

  22. Keni says

    Finally, a fix that works. You’re genius. Haven’t had mms since I jailbroke my phone almost a month ago. Extremely happy, easy instructions. The first setting didnt work, I had to go down the second option. Thanks again!

  23. says

    I have an iphone4 on 4.3.3 giving me one helluva problem. I’ve used these settings for many other 3gs and iphone4. This particular problem is related to the back-up image file (i believe). When I restore the iphone and use different back-up image (say jeffrey iphone), I apply the settings and the MMS works. But when I try to apply the phone owners back-up image (tammy iphone). The MMS does not work. I tried a different iphone 4 and had the same problem, when I used back-up image for jeffrey MMS worked fine, but when I used back-up image for tammy mms failed.

    I have used every variation of t-mobile mms settings as well as tmobile us ios4 fix from both leimobile and pushfix. I also made sure to reboot after every setting change or ios fix installation.

  24. Abomb says

    I just downloaded Beta LEIMobile from Cydia and install T-Mobile MMS Fix. And BAM! it worked perfect. Easy as 1-2-3. Didn’t have to touch settings either! Thanks LEI MOBILE!

    I just unlocked my 3G 4.2.1 iphone and works good as new! Believe! Good-bye ATT! HELLO T-mobile and Jail-breakers! LOVE Breaking the law, breaking the law… judas priest! Outlaws forever, we ride…

  25. luis says

    im used 4.1 8B117 and i can send a picture but i cant recive nothing and the LEItmobile dosent work for 4.1 can u guyz help me

  26. RushFan2112 says

    Thank you so much!!! I’ve spent days trying every fix, setting, and package out there. Once I uninstalled sinfuliphonerepo and installed your fix, “bam” MMS messages started flowing in after the reboot. My settings are as follows:

    Data Roaming = ON

    Cellular Data APN = internet2.voicestream.com

    MMS APN = wap.voicestream.com

    MMSC = http://mms.msg………….
    MMS Proxy= same as your instructions
    Max Size = 1048576
    MMS US = http://www.apple.com………rdf

  27. Joe says

    Running iOS 4.3.3, Firmware 4.10.01, GEVEY Ultra. Picture messages works like a charm! Although I get a message every time accessing my messages: “MMS Messaging Requires Your Phone Number” and I have to override this message every time. As most of you know, you can’t SAVE your number in the “My Number” Settings….

    Unless someone knows how to do it, I’d be able to use FACETIME too! Any ideas on how to either hide this message or how to SAVE your number in the My Number settings? Thanks!

  28. CLARA says

    I did all the steps in all of these responses. I don’t have cydia, as this phone was unlocked and can’t be shut off (as per the person who unlocked it). I have tried to find cydia and couldn’t. Either way the problem is I can send mms to myself and to anyone and it works. But when someone sends it to me, i get the same message. “The media content was not included due to a picture resolution or message size restriction” . I’m at wits end. Can anyone make any suggestions?

        • CLARA says

          I’m not tech savy, so I’m assuming your asking the version: It’s 4.3.5(8L) Oh I see the firmware option. It says 04.10.01.
          I don’t know what they used to jailbreak it. Somebody did it for me and I can’t get a hold of them to ask. Thank you so much for your help.

  29. Sean says

    THANK YOU!!! This totally worked! Didnt do anything but like you said to do. Ive been looking for so long to get this right!
