Hey so, it just came up recently that my plan says i have unlimited picture and text messaging but I am not able to send mms?  Now I have the $2  data block addon, but i assumed that I was still able to send pictures. I have a LG 3 that i friend gave me since my actual phone samung j6 ended up in some water. I have tried enabling data on the phone even though i have that bloc on, it just keeps saying error? do i have to take the add on off to be bale to send pictures again?

Hi Zoe, no you want that addon if you want to be able to send and receive mms but yet block all other data.

You'll want to go into your phones settings and make sure your APN settings are set to those of Koodo's and delete any other APN's present there other than Koodo's.

Below I've put Koodo's APN settings.




Port: 80

Username: leave blank

Password: leave blank

Server: leave blank

MMSC: http ://

MMS Proxy server:

MMS Port: 80

MCC: 302

MNC: 220

Authentication type: No set

APN type: No set

Tap menu key, then tap Save. Make sure the data is enabled
where in settings do you find this information

Go to Settings - connections - Mobile Networks - APN or Access Point Names - There you will see the APN's and if Koodo's isn't there you'll need to select to add one and add the one for Koodo I placed above and add all the field values I've laid out above. If there is Koodo make sure it's selected and delete any others that may be interfering.
I wanted to see what my phone was set at with the numbers you mentioned above and they all seem to match what you stated except I have nothing at the lines proxy or port but my phone does work with no problems
