One of the great things about GoSmart Mobile service is that you can bring your own phone! However, phones previously used with different service providers sometimes need to be set up correctly in order to use the Internet and send and receive picture messages on our network.
If you're bringing your own phone to activate GoSmart Mobile service, use this page to make sure your phone is correctly set up to access the Internet and send and receive picture messages (MMS).
After you activate service with GoSmart Mobile, you may receive one or more text messages with helpful suggestions for setting up picture messaging and Web browsing on your phone. Follow the steps in the message(s) to ensure the simplest setup.
Select correct steps for your phone's software platform:
- Windows Phone
- All other phones
- To determine where in your phone to verify the Internet and MMS settings, please refer to your user manual or your phone manufacturer’s website.
- Once you have located the correct menu option for the settings, view the standard and advanced settings below to set up your phone for Internet and MMS.
