Yeah are there any tips anyone has? I just activated a AT&T moto X on Straight Talk and stupidly did the update so I can't root right now, Texting/Phone works but not MMS, I'm assuming because of the APNs that you can't delete?

Edit: see below reply.

Update! I went back and verified and I had actually messed up the APN, once I made it the correct settings and rebooted, I was able to SEND mms but not receive it. Then I woke up this morning, and now that is working as well. I did not root and still have the stock apn's in my phone, I just 'selected' the ST one.

mine worked fine as soon as i put in the new APN. looking at yours, the first thing i see is you have a port when you shouldn't. not sure otherwise. try adding a new APN and only put in values for what ST now gives with the tfdata setting (port is MMS port).

if that doesn't work, how old is your SIM? you may need the old settings to get it working.. they switched over to the new one sometime in the last few months and left everyone to figure it out but it seems that SIMs purchased after a particular, mysterious date need the tfdata one.

also, if you're just getting it set up today you might try waiting another day or so. i've jumped back and forth a few times and i know at least once or twice it's taken a day or so for MMS to catch up.

Just got my sim a few days ago, along with my moto x. I ported my number this morning from AT&T. Will take the port setting out and see what happens. Thanks.

Note it looks like I edited my post after you replied. Meant port, not proxy - but leave MMS port. Also, you may need to wait a good day or so for everything to "take" with the new SIM after porting.

Ok, took the port out on the data proxy, left the mms port and proxy. Still not working yet. Ill let it cook, and see what happens. This should give me LTE too correct?

Yes it should. I've had to wait the better part of a day before for MMS to start working correctly, but can't remember the same for data (although it could be true). Did you reboot and all that jazz? Not to dumb it down too much for you, but did you remember to select the "bubble" next to the APN name after you saved it? I've almost missed that before. Other than that, I guess you'll have to wait 24 hours and call Straight Talk - they won't tell you anything other than "wait 24 hours" if you call before then.

edit: and can you make/receive calls as-is at least?

yep, i have the bubble selected on the apn screen and rebooted several times. I can call and recieve sms but no mms/data. Only other thing I wanted to try and can't is deleting the factory APNs, but can't with no root.

EDIT: I can see the "4G" symbol in the status bar, but never get connected.
