  1. My new Samsung J5 Pro mobile phone doesn’t have the “MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0” line in the APN setting and is unable to send pictures in a SMS with mobile data turned off. Why not? I followed the procedure above.
    My plan doesn’t include mobile data.

    My previous HTC One and Telstra 4GX would do it but my earlier Nokia 532 Windows Phone wouldn’t. Is that an APN setting related problem or a phone problem?

    • Hi Dennis,

      We believe it has to do something with your MMS settings. Please ensure you have the correct MMS profile selected on your phone.


  2. what user name and password do I use? my Telstra account?
    I tried that and it dosnt allow a done or any button to click.
