Straight Talk MMS Setup for Windows 8
Straight Talk MMS Setup for Windows 7
The first thing you should be aware of when activating an older Windows 7 phone with Straight Talk is that the Windows 7 operating system on these phones do not give us access to the MMS settings. That is to say, Windows 7 does not have a screen for us to change or set up MMS settings, even on unlocked devices. MMS configuration is automatic on Windows devices. The phone sets the MMS settings on first boot based on the carrier the phone/sim card is configured for, this does not include Straight Talk. There are a few hacks out there, most which will now work.
All that said, all is NOT lost! There are several Windows 7 phones that can be set up with MMS. We've tested quite a few and have all the necessary information you will need to successfully active MMS on your Win 7 device. Keep reading to find out which devices you can successfully use MMS and Straight Talk.

The Nokia Lumia series are excellent phones that can also be setup with MMS. This can be done with the Nokia Network Setup app created by Nokia for this very purpose. The App is free and can be found on the App market by searching Nokia network setup. There are several Lumia series phones to be had and all are MMS compatible. The Lumia series phones include Lumia 900, Lumia 800, Lumia 710 and Lumia 610. All these are compatible with the Straight Talk MMS. Please check out our Straight Talk MMS setup page to learn more.

Samsung is another manufacturer that has provided an app for programming the MMS settings without the necessity of an unlocked phone. MMS can be programmed using the Samsung Wireless Manager app but is not compatible with all Win 7 Samsung phones. There are exactly 3 models that you can use on Straight Talk and will work with MMS. The great thing here is that there is a model to suit all budgets. The models are Samsung Flash SGH-i677, Samsung Focus 2 SGH-i667 and Samsung Focus S SGH-i937.
