Does anyones else's APN seem to delete its self every so often? I always have to reenter it.
Get on wifi and go to this page with your iphone.
Yeah it happens to me too
This has worked for me. My MMS APN used to delete itself as well. I left Cellular Data settings and Internet Tethering settings all blank. Both data and MMS still works for me.
Use this for MMS APN along with all the other usual MMS settings: epc.t-mobile.com
The dash is not a typo. Using epc.tmobile.com will work for MMS as well but will delete itself.
Please update this thread if this solves the self deleting problem.
This will not work for MMS APN, only data APN. Apple does not allow carrier settings to set MMS APN.
Here they are:
MMS APN: epc.tmobile.com
MMS proxy: 126.96.36.199:8080
MMS Max size: 1048546
UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf
Have u been getting charged for tethering? So far I have not.
I have a i5 on T-Mobile since right before Christmas. I have been using MMS since I got it. I followed the instructions from a youtube video for the settings, I don't remember what I filled in.
The only thing that is filled in is MMSC and MMS UA Prof URL everything else is blank, not sure if it was filled in or not, but I have never had problems with MMS. Does this mean it's fine if those are blank or should they be filled, and if I am receiving pics is it because of wifi, I can't keep track of whether or not the pics I receive are done on wifi or not.
Thanks for any info.
For the iPhone 5, T-mobile recommends setting the MMS APN to internet2.voicestream.com and to remove the proxy.
And, it will get deleted when you install an update. Other than that, I haven't seen my settings get lost.
This is what works for me on my iPhone 4S. Keep in mind other phones on T-Mobile may have different settings. My Nexus 4 only has the APN name and MMSC, MCC and MNC fields filled in. Tethering is already enabled on the phone so there is no need for a tethering field in the APN profile.
The time I was on tmobile I don't remember getting charged for tethering.
They don't charge for tethering on iPhones. Probably because it's still an unsupported device on their network. I would imagine that if you are in an area that has consistent 3G and burn a lot of data tethering, then they might catch on. When I had a 4S with them I used to tether about 1GB worth of data per month with no issues.
