    Internet and MMS settings

    To access the internet, or send multimedia messages without ‎Wi-Fi , you need a mobile data connection with correct internet and Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) settings. Here are some tips:

    • For most mobile networks and operators, these settings come pre-installed on your device so you can start using the internet and sending multimedia messages right away.
    • You can manually check for updates to the internet and MMS settings. If you change or delete an internet or MMS setting by mistake, download the internet and MMS settings again.
    • Refer to troubleshooting tips for network coverage, mobile data traffic, and MMS issues.
    • If the Battery time preferred setting of STAMINA mode is activated to save power, all mobile data traffic gets paused when the screen is off. If this causes connection problems, try excluding some applications and services from being paused, or deactivate STAMINA mode temporarily.
    • If you are sharing a device with multiple users, only the owner, that is, the primary user, can download internet and messaging settings from the Settings menu, but the downloaded settings are applicable to all users.
