Exclamation STRAIGHT TALK SIM APN SETTINGS (AT&T BASED, NOT T-Mobile)

I know this thread is old as hell, but to new users who are considering going with Straight Talk (ST), I suggest you do it. Its way cheaper than AT&T and you still get their coverage and not to mention unlimited data**. You can get the Straight Talk SIM card via their Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) program. You can get it at their website.

**You get unlimited data as long as you don't abuse your data connection.

Oh and if you are having trouble trying to get data/mms working on your cappy with ST, here are the APN settings.

1. Download APN Back up/ restore from the Play Store

Name: ST (or whatever you want)
APN: att.mvno
Proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com
Port: 80
Username: Not set
Password: Not set
Server: Not set
MMSC: http:// mmsc. cingular. com (no spaces)
MMSC proxy: 66.209.11.33
MMS port: 80
MCC: 310
MNC: 410
Authentication Type: Not set
APN type: default,supl,mms
APN protocol: IPv4
Bearer: Not specified

I use this with Froyo, Gingerbread, and ICS. It works perfectly!

Cheers and let me know if this helps you out.


UPDATE:

OP Updated.

Not sure if this is still valid because I've changed carriers to Sprint. But I do know that Straight Talk has stopped the BYOP program.

Angry Re:ST

I just got a Samsung sch-i727 put in ST sim and reloaded it since I had let it expire. Set apn up and I am now getting hspa+ expanded 4g signal. Fastest speed so far is 3.5mb. I highly recommend.

Why no slashes? That's what ST recommended and I haven't had problems yet with my captivate. Thanks for the thread.

I use Straight Talk myself. Anyone find a way to down load APN backup and restore without using wifi? I would like to change ROM away from home, but don't know how to get data working without that app.

Thank you for the info. I did want to ask though if you can direct me to the forum post that explains whats needed to be done to flash my pantech burst P9070 at&t phone to Straight Talk?? I moved to Greensburg Kentucky and trying to find a service that will work on my phone in this area.

There is no need to flash your phone, as long as it runs android, you just follow the instructions above. Also straight talk has realized that people will do this anyways so now you can just buy a straight talk SIM card from their website and I'm sure they have instructions too.

Default HTC HD2 converted to Straight Talk

I followed the thread best I can for this, but my HD2 has diferrent sequence for input fields / cell blocks and I was unable to get it completed. The phone works well and the text works well, but no emails. I am a rookie at this technology, so be gentle on me. I purchased this outright at Walmart in 5/10 and the phone is unlocked.

I used this sequence: START > SEETINGS > MENU > ALL SETTINGS > CONNECTIONS > CONNECTIONS >
ADD NEW MODEM CONNECTION > ENTER NAME FOR CONNECTION (STRAIGHT TALK) > SELECT MODEM (GPRS). I completed this part.

ST provides the following instructions:
FIELD = SETTINGS
Name = straight Talk (completed)
APN = att.mvno (can not located this input field)
Proxy = proxy . mvno . tracfone . com (can not locate this input field)
Port = 80 (completed)
MMSC = http: // mmsc . cingular . com (can not locate this input field)
MMS Proxy = 66.209.11.33 (can not locate this input field)
MMS Port = 80 (can not locate this input field)

I really need to get this corrected. Then I would love to upgrade to newer Windows version.

Thanks A Ton - Scott
