I have managed to send (but not receive) MMS messages on my flip phone. Since there is not a lot on this forum pertaining to non-smart phones this post is to document the steps it took so that anyone looking for help might be able to have a starting point for their phone. These steps are based on a LG A341.
You will notice very quickly that the order of these steps matter.
Blue is the main menu.
Green are menu options in the bottom corners.

Activate *This is very important and easily overlooked*
Restart Your Phone *also easy to overlook*
As mentioned above I can only send not receive picture messages. I will update this post when/if I manage to get the receiving half working. Also if you have different steps for your make/model of non-smart phone I will gladly add them.
this thread is about dumbphones non smart phones (without wifi)
If your phone has a browser then it should support WiFi.
@geopublicplease go "should" deserving smartphones in another thread where your comment fits. The models here were mentioned from the get go here. These kinds of dumbphones have browsers and support mms but do not have wifi regardless of what you think they "should" have
You are completely correct. Possible yet unnessisarily difficult.
Thanks! I hope to figure out the recieving part soon too :).
If you refer to the "dumb phone" tag. Its compeltely thanks to @chukdefatey as that's how he refered to it when he replied to me as i was trying to figure it all out, i hadn't thought of them that way until then.
