For you to be able to connect to the internet and receive MMS, you will need to have the APN set correctly on your phone. Normally, this should come automatically, but if yours is not automatically set, there are a number of ways that you can get the settings.
The first and easiest way of getting the settings is through Net 10’s website. All you need to do is to go to the APN page through this link. You will be provided a field to put in your phone number, serial number, or the last 15 digits of your SIM card. Once that is done, a VPN setting will be provided for you.
Another way that you can set your APN is to have it manually done. Note, however, that this will differ slightly based on what you are using. Here are the settings:
