I have been searching forever for the APN settings that would allow me to get and receive photos in my text messages. NET10 (my provider, though I use an AT&T phone) was no help at all. I got different settings from different customer service reps. Your settings jogged something in my head. I was told I HAD to have the same thing in both Ports (80). Then I saw the APN Type that you had. NET10 customer service NEVER provided anything for this. I was ready to try your settings even though my phone is an AT&T Radiant (and NET10 provider), when the light bulb finally went off in my head - DUH!! Look at my boyfriend's phone and try HIS settings!!!! While he has an LG phone, we are on the same plan with NET10. I thought the settings were dependent on the provider AND the type of phone. This may not be the case, cuz VIOLA!!!! I used his settings and I now get internet (which I COULD get before) AND also, FINALLY, I can send and receive photos in my text messages!!!!! Something so darn simple, yet I spent days on this!! Here's my info. I hope it can help someone else (thanks again for the inspiration!!!!):
AT&T Radiant phone, 4G, Android. NET10 Provider.
APN Settings are:
Name: Net10 (it appears this name doesn't matter. It can be whatever you want it to be)
Proxy: not set
Port: not set ( NET 10 said this had to be 80, same as the MMS proxy. Well, apparently NOT!!)
User name: not set
Password: not set
Server: not set
MMS proxy: mms3.tracfone.com
MMS Port: 80
Authentication Type: none
APN Type: default,mms,supl
[APN is enabled, in grey here, done in the step or two before you actually get into these settings]
I hope this helps someone else!!! Thanks for the info. This site is incredible!

Forgot to mention, my AT&T Radiant is a "Go Phone", but again, my provider is NET 10 (for NOW). I am not sure if having a Go Phone that is truely prepaid would need different settings or not. Thanks again!
