If you’re unable to send or receive MMS on your LG G5, here’s a few troubleshooting steps you can try to fix the issue:
- Make sure you have a network connection (if you have No Service click here)
- Go to Settings > Mobile data and make sure Mobile data is ON and there is no data block
- Try reconfiguring your APN setings:
- Go to Settings > More > Mobile networks > Access point names
- Tap on Menu > Reset to default
- After resetting your APNs, select the one that belongs to your provider
- Make sure the MMSC & MMS Proxy fields are configured properly
- If you have no APN or you’re unsure of what the settings should look like, click here for APN settings or google your provider’s APN settings
- Once you have the APN settings you can create one by tapping on “New APN”.
- Try to reset your network settings (This is only available with the latest software update) :
- Go to Settings > Backup & reset
- Select Network settings reset
- Tap on Reset Settings to confirm
- Reboot your smartphone
- If none of the steps above worked, you can try performing a factory data reset. After the reset once again make sure you have the proper APN settings setup for your carrier!
