I have looked in vain for the Cellular Data Network in the General tab under settings on the Iphone.  Can anybody help me to find it please.  You have kindly provided the information to input to get my mms settings but I cannot get that far !

 

Regards

you need to install the APN settings manually...

 

Go to " Settings " ....

Do NOT press the " Reset Settings " button when you’ve done this.

Once the settings are in, reboot your device.

Then, press “ Settings “…“ Messages “ and ensure that " MMS Messaging " button is set to ON.

In " settings " " messages " turn imessages on.

Please also ensure that the " Enable 3G " button and the " Mobile Data " button are set to ON. (Press Settings, then General, then Network / Mobile Data).

Then " Settings " ... " Phone " .... And check " My Number " is correct

Go to " Settings " ... " Carrier " and change to O2-UK.
