Default Going from Note 2 to Note 3 with Straight Talk

Just a heads up to you guys. I bought a Note 3 AT&T variant on Craigslist. Pulled my year old ST micro sim out of my Note 2 and popped it in my Note 3 and BAM! It worked right off batt! No unlocking necessary! AND it still gets 4G! Used the same old APN settings as well.......just thought I would share that with you guys that are curious about making the switch!

Thank you! I ordered a micro SIM last night. My Note 1 uses a standard sized SIM.

What are your APN settings? I have tried every combination of settings that I can find without any success. I can get LTE, text, data, 4g, and send MMS. However, I cannot receive any incoming MMS messages. Let me know!

The same from the booklet they send with the sim. All standard

Straight talk with LTE has been a hassle. data works fine. but text and mms are a hit and miss. this with all correct settings. i went back to ATT go plan for 60 a month

Glad it worked for you. I have a Verizon Note 3 and even though it works, I am not getting 4G/LTE, only H+ service.
