Got the Lumia in hand now, I've 24 hrs. Can't seem to get MMS messages to go through. On my HTC prior, the connection setup app fixed this issue. Since its no longer available on the market, anyone figure how to get around this to fix MMS picture messaging? I can neither send or receive them. It just fails right away.

If you are just starting with AT&T, i.e. porting your number from another carrier, it is possible that the porting process wasn't quite complete. Give it a day or two and your MMS should start working.
It would definitely help if Nokia put the Network Setup app back up :|

WARNING: Run on sentences....
After 3 days of on/off phone support with lame AT&T tech staff, there even came a point when the tech admited, "we don't even know how to support this thing correctly, as there is no documentation yet", I finally got to the bottom of my issue. The entire time, I noticed there was no LTE or 4G icon at the top of the screen. So I reset the phone for one last time, after getting a new SIM card from a retail store ... that the SIM settings or "profile" had to be "pushed" out again, whatever that means, to my phone. It turns out, I may have been sent an incorrect iPhone SIM which was not 4G/LTE capable !!! As of Saturday night, I was back in action, sending / receiving MMS without issues, as well as surfing at pretty good speeds here in Philly and D.C. area!

Update #2 ... just got back from retail store in D.C. --- employees are being told that there is a known data issue. Why did I go there? Well, 2 days later, after my Saturday night SIM-reprovision (see two posts above), it turns out approx 3pm today, everything stopped working again! Now they are providing work around to ADD APN! The retail store employee says everyone who got a phone also isn't working when it comes to MMS, Data and in some cases Visual Voice mail.
The settings are APN: wap.cingular
User Name: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am out of Visual Voice mail right now .... it's 8pm EST..... looks like the success of the phone on 4g/LTE is bringing down the AT&T network? Who knows .... we shall wait and see.
P.S. I am convinced it is not the phone. It is the AT&T network <again>... <sigh>

Same problem, I can txt and talk etc bit no mms. Driving me crazy trying to YouTube how to do this! HELP! And AT&T
Should have told their customers they had rights to unlock it when purchasing it, or a "free upgrade" locked
Me into contract. I dumped em and got code on YouTube for $17. But no MMS!
