I have an unlocked Sony Ericsson C510a phone compatible with Koodo - it is HSPA and everything is working except for MMS. I am not quite familiar with the MMS and APN settings on these older Sony phones as there are TONS of options. I've found a few sites and forums but i'm still left in the dust. Any ideas? Thanks!!

What error are you getting when you try to send a MMS? Do you have data enabled?
Here are Koodo's apn settings:

Thanks, Im aware of these settings, it's just that the way the Ericsson phones ask for the settings differs from Android and iOS devices. It just asks for different things.

Could you take some screenshots of what you have so we can see what you're working with?

Btw, when you put in a Koodo SIM it should automatically configure this. To use MMS you need to have data enabled? Do you have data turned on while trying to send?

It won't automatically configure - this is a bar phone from 2009 that was not originally from Koodo so it requires some additional settings. Will post a photo!

The phone is properly an old phone that had troubles with automatic settings. According to gsmarena, it doesn't support LTE. https://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_c510-2640.php

I would suggest you follow Allan post and enter Koodo APN parameters. Also you need to enable mobile data for MMS to work.
