I'd be more than happy to assist you. Who is your cell phone provider? Did you purchase the device unlocked?
OK thank you, standby.
I'll need your cell phone number please.
OK follow the steps below. And once you've gotten to the end, let me know and I'll give the settings to type in.

Let me know if you need additional assistance by replying, otherwise if this resolves your issue please be sure to rate my answer. Thank you. I'm still here by the way.
Yes you should. Use the information I provided.
Be sure to save the settings once you've typed them in by going to MENU, then SAVE and making sure the green radio button is directly to the right of the one APN setting. That's key otherwise it won't retain the settings. I suggest upon reboot you go back and verify your settings took. Once completed I'm happy to send you an MMS message if you like as a test.
The menu button is the 3-dot icon. Do you see that?
Usually in the top right of the program 3 vertical dots like this: <screenshot>
Perfect, then save...then reboot the phone, verify the settings again stuck. Then let me know and I will send you an MMS is if you like
It's very important that MMS proxy be set to proxy.mobile.att.net. What number do it change to?
Just sent you a test picture message
Safelink if I'm not mistaken is some sort of Government subsidized phone, I suspect they're not getting high-speed 4G data from AT&T who is the data provider at the end of the day. Safelink has a contract with TracFone who uses AT&T for data and likely cell. They probably have you all on the slowest Internet possible. So I can assure you the MMS experience won't be good. But it will at least work albeit very slowly.
No the setting will not interfere with anything. Listen, if you're looking for a cheap monthly cell phone bill with better service (i.e. highspeed Internet, etc). Check out Ting, RingPlus, and ProjectFi. I think you'll find they offer a much better class of service for cheap. Ringplus has a Mad Scientist plan for $16-$18/month and I think you get unlimited minutes and 1GB of high speed data. Just some things to check out.
Ting and RingPlus use Sprint. ProjectFi uses Spring & T-Mobile. FYI.
