Android Nexus 4 APN settings including MMS on wifi

[ Edited ]

I have seen lots of posts of people trying to get MMS working, and being told they have to turn off WiFi. This is ridiculous, can you imagine accepting that you have to turn WiFi off to receive phonecalls?

The APNs listed below have been tested on my Nexus 4 including sending and receiving MMS when connected to WiFi. I would guess that they may well also work on other Android phones, and stop this stupid belief that you can't use MMS when connected to WiFi (obviously you do need to be in a location where you can access mobile data). I tested using both MMSCs that are frequently mentioned in these forums. The o2 one works, the other does not allow you to receive MMS when connected to WiFi.

If I don't list a setting leave it as default/blank (you will need two APNs set up in the order listed)

Name giffgaff
APN giffgaff.com
Username giffgaff
Password password
MCC 234
MNC 10
APN type default,supl
APN protocol IPv4
APN roaming protocol IPv4

Name giffgaff MMS

APN giffgaff.com
MMSC http://mmsc-ac.mms.o2.UK:10021/mmsc
MMS proxy 193.113.200.195
MMS port 8080
MCC 234
MNC 10
APN type mms
APN protocol IPv4
APN roaming protocol IPv4

When completed there will be a blue radio button next to the 1st APN but not the second.

Re: Android Nexus 4 APN settings including MMS on wifi

No it is not incorrect. I tested both and the non o2 mmsc did not allow MMS to receive when on WiFi, the o2 one did.

Furthermore, if you want to be able to send and recieve MMS whilst on WiFi you will need to use two APNs.

Re: Android Nexus 4 APN settings including MMS on wifi

I did use the tweaker app, and whilst pretty good it didn't get the MMS quite right. If you set up the APNs correctly the WiFi will not override the data connection when sending and recieving MMS. This is why you needs the separate MMS APN so it will treat MMS differently to other data it sends and receives.
