How to send MMS using non-Smart Phone?

I have this Alcatel OT 871A phone I have used for a few years. This is NOT a Smart Phone. See here: https://www.gsmarena.com/alcatel_ot_870-4729.php

 

I can send SMS text no problem. The phone can also be set up to send MMS but when I try it never gets sent and I get an error message "Configuration Error!"

 

Nothing I have tried so far works. I have made sure that Data is turned on. I have the following setup screen with the following entries:

APN = sp.telus.com ( I have also tried isp.telus.com)

Username =

Password =

Authorization Type = Normal

 

Under Advanced Settings:

Homepage =

Connection Type = HTTP

Use Proxy = No   

(I have also tried: Proxy = Yes, Proxy Address = 74.49.0.18, Proxy Port = 80, Proxy User Name = <blank>, Proxy Password = )

 

Primary DNS = 000.000.000.000

Secondary DNS = 000.000.000.000

IP Address = 000.000.000.000

Subnet Mask = 000.000.000.000

 

How do I get this to work?

What type of MMS are you trying to send? Non-smart phones may only be able to send simple picture messages.
