Nokia 635 - Consumer Cellular MMS and Internet

Moved to Consumer Cellular a year or so ago using Apple and Android phones. A family member has a Lumia 635 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 the 635, see this point for the fix for a Lumia 520.

To edit/add the settings perform the following:

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

APN: att.mvno
User name: [leave blank]
Password: [leave blank]
Proxy server (URL):
Proxy port: 80
 ...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!

This were the setting that worked for me. Consumer celluar had no idea why.
1. Undersim settings
2. Internet APN
apn = ccdata
All other fields = blank but authentication type which is locked with PAP
apn = att.mvno
User name = blank
Password = blank
WAP gateway url =
WAP gateway port = 80
Mmsc url =
Mmsc port = 80
Maximum mms size = blank
IP type = iPv4v6

This seems to be working for me. In summary, the consumer cellar internet apn setting are fiine. The mms apn settings seem to be a combination old and new settings. They could change at any time i would bet.
