How to receive and read MMS (APN settings) on my Fairphone 2


If you don't have cellular data (4G/3G) or you can't receive MMS messages, it usually means your APN (Access Point Names) settings are wrong, or they are not there at all.

Please check if there are APN settings defined for the SIM card which has to connect to the Internet:

  1. Settings → More → Mobile networks → Access point names. This shows the current settings for your provider/phone operator. Make sure that they are the same as the APN settings as your provider states, usually on their website.
  2. If there are multiple choices (or there is no choice at all), please get the correct APN settings from your provider, usually on their website.
    Make sure the current settings are according to the APN settings from your provider.
