Is there anyone who (like me) purchased a developer edition M8 with the intention of using it on Straight Talk?

The activation went very smooth and everything works great, all except for MMS. 3G, SMS and LTE all work.

I've searched everywhere for a definitive list of APN settings for straight talk and can't find a universal one that everyone says will work.

I've tried the common ones and none of them seem to work. Coincidentally, a lot of people said their MMS stopped working when they updated to Kit kat on other devices.

Does anyone have any kit kat device and straight talk with working MMS? Even better, on an HTC One M8?

If so, could someone post APN settings?

It depends on which carrier you're using with ST. Here are the APNs for T-Mobile and AT&T SIMs.

Those were the first APN settings I tried.

I'm using an AT&T sim for ST.

Did it work? Im just wondering because I have an m7 an after kitkak no more mms and group sms. There's is not fix yet the only thing is to downgrade to jelly bean or wait for the upgrade in May for the m7. And I been looking if the factory unlocked versions will work or not.

Here are my working settings for an AT&T sim on straight talk using my M8. These settings worked across all roms on the m8.

I used the above APN settings and still no mms for me

Mine's not a developer edition, it's just a regular AT&T model but I wouldn't think that would make a difference. I've read that ordering a new SIM card from ST has done the trick for some people so that is my next plan of action.

How long ago did you get your sim for your m8? Mine took 5 days after porting my number and getting a new nanosim from ST for mms to work.

I ported my number about 3 weeks ago using the nanosim in the byod kit. Haven't got around to ordering that new nanosim yet though.
