    Have your friends send you the pictures via email instead. It may be crap, but T-Mo US works on a different bandwidth than the rest of the known universe, and it's a well known fact that iPhones on T-Mo cannot use 3G.

    It's being Tmo is weird and uses different 3G bands. I don't believe you can receive MMS's. Maybe somebody who know for sure can chime in. If you want to use a iPhone with all usable features, go to AT&T/Verizon/Sprint.

    You have no place to complain that things don't work on a phone that isn't designed for T-Mobile. If T-Mobile tried to help you and it couldn't get done, that's the price you pay for running it on their unsupported network.

    There are consequences........

    I have the factory unlocked 4S and periodically use it with my T-Mobile prepaid service. As far as 3G goes you are out of luck as this phone doesn't support T-Mobiles 3G frequency band. As for MMS, I have not gotten this to work either even after I used the APN changer. However, I did do some research and bookmarked this link with some tips on getting MMS to work on the 4S. (This link will open if you copy and paste it into your browser.) https://t-mobile.jive-mobile.com/#jive-discussion?content=%2Fapi%2Fcore%2Fv1%2Fdiscussion s%2F9292 . I haven't tried what was mentioned there yet because I don't use MMS that much anyway, but some people have reported good results from it, ymmv...

    Hope this helps.
