I am unable to send or receive MMS. I have had my Galaxy Mega 2 for about 5 years and I have never had a problem. Could you please advise me on what to do or maybe walk me though the process of being able to receive or send my photos.

Me too! Regardless throughout 3 phones, new SIM cards & even phone number - would help for a few days here n there then back to no service for most of the months this year & regardless of signal... Which I've yet to be compensated for while paying $50 a month to get the "#AT&T Unlimited No Service Plan"...

AT&T has not fixed this issue.
My wife and I just purchased net Galaxy S9 phones and switched our service to Consumer Cellular from Sprint. Big mistake!
Or cell service has been non existent sine day one.
The fist day a month ago customer service told us to go to Target and get AT&T sim cards for the phones. We did, made no difference in our signal. So last week I went to Ebay and purchased an Cell Phone Signal Booster. I installed the booster today. Using the LTE Discovery app. I found my signal went from 102dbm to 65 to 70 dbm full bars. However, when we try to make a call the signal drops out to no service. We can not make or receive calls from inside our home.
Now customer service is sending us new sim cards again. This time we are going back to T-mobile sims. I have saw people say that calls are not made over the LTE signal. Having said that I am getting no GSM signal.
[Per Guidelines: Keep it Relevant and Appropriate].

My ex husband has had service for years where he lives for years an years . Been going to store for 3 weeks now . First they put new sims card on his old phone then he ended up paying 1200$ for a new iPhone and it still with no service at his home . It stops service the home beside him and his home . If he can’t get service now what was the use of him having to buy a new phone like the store told him . They probably didn’t look on the tower map for his service but why has it stop picking up in all these years and now no service . He needs answers bc like I said 3 weeks an new high dollar phone that u can’t use .he has health problems an can not depend on att . So I need someone to contact me an give him some answers . Fast answers bc if he can’t call out an something happens with him then what . Need to make this good on his part . Contact me plez . Thanks
