How to Set Up WAP & MMS on an AT&T Network

Save

The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is an older standard used for data transfer on wireless cellular networks. Multimedia Message Service (MMS) is the text messaging service that allows embedded pictures, sound and video. Both are included features on all modern cell phones. Usually, a cell phone provider like AT&T will pre-program the WAP and MMS settings into its phones, but if you're using an unlocked phone or you've had to reset your phone software, you may need to manually input the settings yourself. Different phones will access the WAP and MMS settings in different (and often obtuse) ways. Consult your user manual or contact customer service for phone-specific instructions.

  • Open your phone's settings menu and access the WAP settings. Select "Network Profile," the "Internet" or "Media Net."

  • Enter "MEdia Net" for the "Connection Title" field. (Make sure the capitalization is correct.) Enter "GRPS" in the "Bearer" field. Enter "PAP" in the "Authentication" field.

  • Enter "WAP@CINGULARGRPS.COM" for the user name and "CINGULAR1" for the password. Enter "wap.cingular" for the APN field. Select "Save."

  • Enter the Messaging menu. Select the "MMS" settings option. Select "Edit."

  • For the "Name" field, enter "AT&T MMS." For the MMSC URL, enter "http://mmsc.cingular.com." For the proxy, enter "wireless.cingular.com."

  • Enter "80" for the MMSC port. Select "TCP with Proxy" for the connection type. Enter "MEdia Net" for "Network Profile" (please recreate the capitalization here.) Select "Save."
