Default Verizon S5 on Straight Talk/GSM

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,
