Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) for AT&T on iPhone and Android devices. To successfully send and receive, set up AT&T APN internet settings and have an active AT&T plan. Setting up Access Point Name (APN) is essential since cell service providers have settings required for MMS to work.
Multimedia Messaging Service(MMS) is used to send pictures, short videos, and voice notes. It was introduced in 2003 as a development of SMS before the advent of iMessage on Apple devices and Rich Communications Services (RCS) on Android devices. MMS is gradually being replaced by these two services but still important to be set up as someone could send you a picture and you’ll want to receive it.
