    Has anyone received a message asking to update their carrier settings...? I use NET10 and updated my settings. Now it says TFW instead of HOME. I hope this means that you don't have to manually add carrier apn settings anymore for NET10!

    I did not get a notice of an update but my Straight Talk service has changed from HOME to TFW.

    I removed my APN profile and turned off wifi and I'm able to use the internet. I just need to test MMS. So far I'm very happy.

    Reply back when you find out about MMS, I used a T-Mo sim to get that set up.

    I did the T-Mobile SIM swap prior to the update so I could send MMS, after the update, it's still working, did not have to redo it... Mine also changed from HOME to TFW... :)

    Yes. MMS is working. I never set it up but now it's actually working.

    AT&T went from 15 to 15.5 after the update, don't know what they changed.

    BTW AT&T is supposed to enable HD Voice this year and there was a hacked carrier update out there, does anyone know what the version number was?

    I'm on Net10 and got these carrier settings today. Yay I have mms with no SIM swap and no more silly "HOME" for the carrier name!

    PS I wasn't notified. The new settings came with 7.0.3.

    My T-Mobile 5s went from 15.1 to 15.5 after I installed iOS 7.0.3. I have no idea what changed, but it certainly would be nice if HD Voice was re-enabled.

    I was just coming here to post a thread about this. I had the Straight Talk carrier update pushed to me before I even had a chance to update to iOS 7.0.3. It comes with data and MMS settings! No more need for unlockit.co.nz or T-Mobile SIM SWAP! Awesome! I have a locked 5S and can't use SIM swap... No more eBay unlocks either! I was so ready to leave ST and go to AIO Wireless so that I could have MMS. Then like magic... I get the notification for carrier update and viola... The carrier tag now says "TFW" and MMS/data work out of box! Loving my Unlimited Talk & Text and 2.5GB of data for only $42/mo with NO TAXES or regulatory fees!

    I passed on the carrier setting update after the 7.0.3 phone update. How can I get the message to install it again?

    Strange I just checked that setting and it's TFW 15.6. I guess I did get the carrier update.

    Unable to receive MMS

    Hi all - hope someone can help me out on this one

    I'm using Straight Talk on the new ATT SIM card on an iphone 5. The carrier just upgrade and I'm seeing TFW with LTE. Data and everything is working fine. I can SEND MMS picture, but I CANNOT RECEIVE mms picture for some reason. Even if I use the tmobile sim switch to modify the mms setting as followed:


    APN: tfdata
    MMSC: http://mms-tf.net
    MMS Proxy: mms3.tracfone.com:80
    MMS Max Message Size: 1048576
    MMS UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf

    Anyone has the same problem?
    Help please!

    I have the same as you (not sure about the UA Prof URL though), but I can send & receive MMS. The only other difference I see is that I don't have the ":80" on the MMS Proxy...

    ----------

    I also am showing 15.6 even though I only did the 7.0.3 upgrade, never notified about a carrier upgrade. I am using Straight Talk on an AT&T iPhone 5.

    No VV. Not a biggie. I actually like using YouMail instead for the option of different greetings for each contact.
