I have an Imate JamIn Phone and I am not able to SEND/RECEIVE MMS / Picture Messages.
Wireless Service Proider - T-Mobile (US) Phone is non TMobile provided. The Regular Text messaging has been working fine without any problems and I have a Monthly 400 Messages plan and it includes picture messaging.
I have tried so many thing and spent hrs on this and have still not been able to fix it. Tmobile provided me some help in configuring the Tzone and still did not work.
I have also changed my SIM Card.
Here's what I have for my Phone Settings - ------------------------------------------------------------- Start / Settings / Connections / Connections / MY ISP =>
Name for the Connection - Tzone Select a Modem - Cellular Line (GPRS) Access Point Name - wap.voicestream.com User Name - <Blank> Password - <Blank> Domain - <Blank>
Advanced - TCP/IP ->(Radio Button on) Use Server-assigned IP Address
Servers - (Radio Button on) Use Specific Server Address.
DNS - 22.214.171.124 Alt DNS - 126.96.36.199 WINS - 0.0.0.0 Alt WINS - 0.0.0.0
You might want to change the port to 8080 for the MMS setting section. For the data connection setting, you don't generally need to enter DNS servers-- instead go with server assigned.
Here's the instructions for the Jamin from T-Mobile's configurator web site:
1. On the handset, tap on the Start button. 2. Tap on Settings. 3. Tap on Connections. 4. Tap on the Connections icon. 5. Under My ISP, tap on Add a new modem connection. 6.

Under Servers, tap on New. 21. Enter T-Mo MMS in the Server name field. 22. Enter 216.155.165.050 in the Gateway field. 23. Enter 8080 in the Port number field. 24.

The handset is now configured for Multimedia Messages.
