No, you have to use StraightTalk's APN settings which are almost identical to the wap.cingular APN settings in the post above yours. Your phone will get HSPA+ 4G on StraigthTalk using the APN provided by StraightTalk with no problems so I don't know what your issue is. If you mean 4G LTE you cannot get LTE with a StraightTalk plan no matter what APN settings you use even if you are one of the few who has the proper AT&T LTE (band 4 AWS) in your area.
I am getting internet its just not that fast... I get about 1.5-3m download and I thought HSPA+ would be alot faster then that. Any idea what the exact settings I should use are maybe I have something wrong with my settings? Thanks in advance for any help with this issue.
It depends upon which HSPA+ (10, 15 21) you have in your area and how crowded the towers are. You look to be getting HSPA+10 speeds and that may be all that's available in your area. And be careful running speeds tests, one speedtest can use up to 50 MB of data which is enough to go over your daily limits with StraightTalk and be throttled down to 2G speeds for the rest of the month. Go to settings>about phone>status and look under mobile networks and you will see what type of data connection you have, this needs to be done while you are actively using data to see the highest speed you can connect to in your area (open a web page in a browser then use the notification tray to open settings and look at your data type).
Been a while since I had StraightTalk but these should be their APN settings.
Name: ST (or whatever you want)
Username: Not set
Password: Not set
Server: Not set
MMSC proxy: 184.108.40.206
MMS port: 80
Authentication Type: Not set
APN type: Not set (or default)
APN protocol: IPv4
Bearer: Not specified
I just re did my settings to match what you posted. Everything was the same except I did not have the first proxy or port number entered
So I adjusted those. Before I did that the status said HSPA:10 now it says HSPA+:15
Does this mean I should get faster speeds now?
Oh nice, I Think At&t is using both bands now here in Bayamon area because two months ago I test it and it wasnt working (only band17). The odd part is that i was comparing speed using my Nexus 4 connected to Lte band 4 vs a Galaxy S3 connected to band 17 and while mine was giving 30+mbps the galaxy was only giving 10+mbps, pretty weird. Anyways i am happy that in my home and my work i got Lte coverage for band 4.
