Default New Straight Talk APN for BYOP - if data quits working

Update: Straight Talk's website now tells you the apn setting you should be using, to do this visit the link at the bottom of this post and follow the directions. The apn settings in this post should be the settings all new users are assigned, checking the link would tell you for sure though.

Just a heads up, if you're using Straight Talk's BYOP sim card and your data quit working, you may have been transitioned to new apn settings. I read about it here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2310215 in the Nexus 4 forums.

It seems users there lost all mobile data connectivity after their service renewed. The new apn settings seemed to have restored their data connectivity. I suggest making a second apn setting on your phone with the new settings I've posted below. The reason why I suggest a second apn is so you can easily switch between apns if you lose data connectivity on the new apn, I see it as an easy troubleshooting step down the road.

Here is the new apn

Name: Straight Talk

APN: tfdata

Port: 80

MMSC: http://mms-tf.net

MMS Proxy: mms3.tracfone.com

MMS Port: 80


Straight Talk now let's you type in your phone number on their website to look up which apn settings you should be using, it can be found here

I hope somebody finds this useful and hopefully doesn't cause confusion.

I tried this too on my Google Nexus 4 because the results from my speedtests have been very poor [pic attached].

Unfortunately for me, the new APN settings are not working. In the mean time, I have placed a support ticket with Straight Talk to fix this issue.

Here is the new apn

Name: Straight Talk

APN: tfdata

Port: 80

MMSC: http://mms-tf.net

MMS Proxy: mms3.tracfone.com

MMS Port: 80


The new APN settings can also be viewed on Straight Talk's website here:
http://straighttalksim.com/support-data.php#

I hope somebody finds this useful and hopefully doesn't cause confusion.

The Above Settings are for CDMA I suspect.

The OLD Settings BELOW work on my GSM SGH2 I777.

This APN works for GSM,

NAME straight talk
APN att.mvno
PROXY proxy.mvno.tracfone.com
PORT 80
MMSC http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS PROXY 66.209.11.33
MMS PORT 80

Hope this helps!

Is that why it's listed under the ATT section of StraightTalk's www.straighttalksim.com website? :P

You can not get LTE without the hardware. The SGH-I777 and the SGH-S959G are not LTE capable.

Probably because you need the new LTE sim card from ST, which only recently came out; that is if your hardware supports it, as creepy stated.

And please be aware that this is the i777 forum.
