I can not receive or send multi media stuff, such as pictures

Customer Question

I can not receive or send multi media stuff, such as pictures and multi texts. I've had my new ZTE straight talk phone for at least 2 months and I've tried absolutely everything from going into the system settings to going to the AT&T store to calling straight talk customer service, and was put on hold with no help several times. If I could please get some help with issue as soon as possible I would GREATLY appreciate it.
Thank you so much
Cynthia

Hi Randy, After going to Mobile network settings, it does not say anything else for which you suggested. But under my Mobile network settings are: Data enabled, Data roaming, Always on mobile data, and system select. With those 4 what would i check next to do?

okay, follow this link and enter your phone number and also select the ZTE phone from the dropdown menu.https://www.straighttalk.com/wps/portal/home/support/apn

So what would I do next if I do not belong to the Bring your own phone thing? Because I really need my MMS settings fixed now. I'm getting very agitated about it and don't know what to do and I've tried everything that I know to do! It's really not making any sense that nothing is working or that I can't get any help!
