message settings for Huawei G300 phone

Hi

This phone is sold by Vodaphone but I have got it unlocked and use it on O2 as it has good signal where I live and most places I go.

It is running Gingerbread and I go on the internet with it and use various apps like Twitter and weather apps with no problem but it does not receive nor can I send picture messages, I guess a problem with the setup but what?

Any ideas gratefully received

Tried all variations as proposed in the link a couple of posts back but none worked.

Found this one on a blog and it works for my Huawei G300 on PAYG

 

On your HTC Desire S (possibly other Android Phones) go to > Settings > wireless and network > mobile networks > Access Point Names


then hit the menu button and add a new APN. Don't forget to save once you have added the detail ;-)
