We need to know more specifics in order to be able to help effectively. What did you do to set up MMS? Is the phone Factory Unlocked or Jailbroken & Unlocked? Which iPhone do you have? What version of iOS is it running? There are different things you could do based on these parameters...

Yes, Apple put a lot of people out in the cold with that one! Fortunately there is a new way to configure your iPhone running iOS6. To our knowledge, this only works on factory unlocked phones.
You must follow these instructions to the T or it will not work. When it says "back in" or "go back" it means tap back to, not press the home button. If you press the home button when not asked to, it will not work.
From our Facebook page:
This method was tested on a factory unlocked iPhone 4S after upgrading to iOS6. No need for jailbreak!
STEP 1: Go to "Settings", tap on WiFi and temporarily turn it OFF
STEP 2: Back in "Settings", scroll down to "Messages" and tap to open it. Make sure MMS is OFF.
STEP 3: Go back to "Settings", tap on "General" and then "Cellular". Make sure "Enable 3G" is OFF & "Data Roaming" is ON.
STEP 3: Scroll down & tap on "Cellular Data Network"
STEP 4: Under "Cellular Data Network" put in the following:
Cellular Data APN: simple
MMS APN: simple
MMS Proxy: 188.8.131.52:8080
MMS Max Message Size: 1048576
MMS UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf
Leave all other fields blank
STEP 5: Click on the Home button to go back to the main phone screen
STEP 6: Go back to "Settings" one more time, scroll down and tap on "Messages" and turn it ON.
STEP 7: Press the Home button and you're set to send & receive MMS on SIMPLE Mobile!
Once you have set it up and tested to see it works, you can re-enable WiFi, turn off Data Roaming (SIMPLE Mobile doesn't roam on data anyway) and turn on 3G (or leave it off if you're not in a 3G area for at&t devices on our network).

I have a recently unlocked AT&T IPhone 4 working on IOS 6.01. (It was unlocked at a store that sells/repairs phones and wireless plans, so I am not sure if that means it is "factory" unlocked or not.) Unfortunately, I am unable to send or receive pictures via MMS. I tried to follow your instructions, however, my phone does not show "Cellular Data Network" so I am unable to program the APN settings. I went back to the store that unlocked my IPhone, but they said they were unable to figure out how to make it work. What steps do I need to take to be able to send/receive pictures via MMS on my Iphone? Thanks.

If you can't see "Cellular Data Network" and you have a SIMPLE Mobile SIM in it, then it is very likely that your phone is not unlocked. It may have been jailbroken but not unlocked. They are two different things. In order to manually programm web/MMS, you must have access to the "Cellular Data Network" option.
Factory unlocked means that it originally shipped unlocked from Apple or AT&T gave you a code that unlocked it for you, or you paid for an IMEI unlock code from a website or dealer that sells legitimate factory unlock IMEI codes.
