Hey guys, my girl wants to move from Verizon to straight talk. She paid for the phone right out, so that she wouldn't have to renew the contract. I use straight talk, and have for 3 years now. So I know how to set up the phone with the apn settings and all.

Anyways, I've got it all set up, and everything is working great, except mms picture messages.

If anyone has any ideas, please leave a comment.

If u don't have anything nice to say, please don't even comment.

Thanks guys

If you're using Google Hangouts (which i would HIGHLY recommend) It has its own APN settings that you'll need to change which should fix your issue.

Thumbs up Does non-VZW SIM work out of the Box on VZW S5?
Does non-VZW SIM, example StraightTalk, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. work in VZW S5 with carrier APN? I'm expecting to only get H or H+ speeds.

Please provide feedback if you have tried it. I know VZW S4 works on other carriers out of box.

Thanks,

Im currently having this same issue. Ever since the update 4.4.4 im also having data issues. One min all my phone is getting is H, H+ then ill get LTE until I get a phone call then after I hang up ill lose data for maybe 25-30 secs then it comes back as E, G, then back to H, H+ then finally go back to LTE about 5 mins later. Not sure what is up with that and how to fix this problem. I have factory reset the phone and tinkered with the APN settings. I bought my phone off eBay its a Verizon S5 said it was unlocked but figured since its unlocked I wouldn't have any problem just switching out sim card to S5. Im almost to point in selling my Verizon S5 and just buy a ATT S5 figured I wouldn't have any problems since straight talk is a ATT sim anyways.
