Nokia 520 - Consumer Cellular MMS and Internet

Moved to Consumer Cellular a year or so ago using Apple and Android phones. Recently switched to a Lumia 520 running Microsoft Phone 8.1 and was unable to send/receive group SMS messages and picture text messages.

The below settings resolved the issue on my 520, see this point for the solution for a Lumia 635.

To edit/add the settings perform the following:

1) Go to System Settings > cellular+SIM > SIM settings
2) Click [Add/Edit] internet APN

APN: ccdata
User name: [leave blank]
Password: [leave blank]
Proxy server (URL): [leave blank]
Proxy port: [leave blank]
 ...and click Disk icon to save

3) Click [Add/Edit] MMS APN
APN: att.mvno
User name: [leave blank]
Password: [leave blank]
WAP gateway (URL):
WAP gateway port: 80
MMSC port: 80
Maximus MMS size: [leave blank] 
 ...and click Disk icon to save

Although it should work with other Windows Phone 8+ models it would be appreciated if you could post your model below and a go/no-go if it worked for you to benefit others on the web.

All the best!
