I have read and read and read about this until I'm blue in the face but with no joy.

I have an FACTORY UNLOCKED iPhone 4 running the T-mobile prepaid full date plan. However I can't:

1. Receive MMS unless they are sent to me by self. (why would I ant to do that?)

2. See an option to activate Facetime &

3. No visual Voicemail which i KNOW is not possible so ignore #3 k?

Any help with accurate , workable info will be greatly appreciated.

TIA

Can't tell you exactly why, however, T-Mobile uses different frequencies for their 3G and 4G networks which is why even an unlocked GSM iPhone will only work using EDGE.

Also - edited out your email address. Never wise to place your email address for all to see in a public forum where it can be picked up by BOTs.
