Ultimate APN Settings for Straight Talk with Android

Ultimate APN Settings for Straight Talk with Android

UPDATE: Great news for all you Straight Talk users! Since I’ve posted a few articles here on WireValley in regards to my experience with Straight Talk, APN settings, tutorials, screenshots, helping others, etc. I thought it would be a great idea to start a support website for all of us Straight Talk users! Visit http://StraightTalkSupport.com to ask questions, learn tips, tricks, and plenty more.

I’ve been using Straight Talk now for over a week and everything is still going great! I had one hiccup with picture messaging. I had entered in another APN setting for MMS picture messaging and everything was working good for a few days. Then, I was having issues with my data connection so I changed my other APN setting with one I found online. However, that ended up screwing up my MMS settings again! Sounds confusing, but really it was an easy fix and I’m here to give you the settings you need to talk, text, data, and MMS.

 

Enter in this APN for your talk, text, and data:

 

_________________________________

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 and no”//”**)
MMSC proxy: 66.209.11.33
MMS port: 80
MCC: 310
MNC: 410
Authentication Type: Not set
APN type: default,supl,mms (notice I took off the mms! This is because we’ll enter a 2nd APN for mms.)
APN protocol: IPv4
Bearer: Not specified

_________________________________

 

Now, we’ll enter in a another APN  for your picture messaging. So go to your APN settings on your phone and create a new APN. Use these settings:

 

___________________________________________

Name: MMS

APN: att.mvno

skip down to MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com

MMS proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com

MMS port: 80

MCC: 310

MNC: 410

Authentication Type: Not set

skip to APN type and enter: mms
THEN SAVE

___________________________________________

 

 

In case you like screenshots, here are the first two screenshots and how your settings should look for the your 1st APN titled ST (or whatever you called it.)

Now onto your MMS APN setting. These are the screenshots for how your 2nd APN called MMS should look:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Continued on to 2nd screenshot….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There you go! Your phone should have perfect working talk, text, data, and picture messaging! I haven’t had any issues since I’ve using these two APN settings together.

  • Bushmaster78FS

    What about the MCC and MNC for the MMS APN settings? My phone enters 310 and 410 by default, should I delete them?

    • WireValley

      No, sorry! Leave those there!

      • http://www.facebook.com/iWunderlich Mike Wunderlich

        I’ve gotten the settings in and still can receive pictures but cannot send. Any clues on why this could be happening? it’s incredibly annoying.

        • WireValley

          Yup! Try this.. my settings have changed (yet again) since updating to Jelly Bean on my phone. Was running into the same issues.

          Under your first APN called ST (or whatever you called it) completely REMOVE “MMSC proxy: 66.209.11.33″ so there is nothing in there.

          STILL leave in the setting above that, and the one below. So that would be MMSC, and MMS port.

          Only remove the MMSC Proxy in your first APN setting and let me know if it works.

          (still keep the MMSC proxy entered in under you “MMS” APN)

          Let me know!

          • Jessica

            My phone won’t let me edit the APN settings and I have been on the phone with straight talk for over an hour and they are not being able to figure out how to make me be able to send picture messages either.

          • WireValley

            What kind of phone do you have?

          • death2verizon

            dude, the apn now is 66.209.11.32 (not 33)

          • margie

            i have a samsung google nexus s on straight talk cant send picture message or receive picture message internet doesnt work unless on wifi can you help me

          • Zane

            does not work! i tried it & im still having the same problem,cant send pics plus i noticed my 4G is gone!

    • WireValley

      I’ve updated the post to include that information since it’s put there by default. Thanks for pointing that out.

  • WireValley

    When you’re entering in the APN type for the first setting, that is an sup”L” (supl) not an I (i).

    APN type: default,supl

    • Bushmaster78FS

      Yep no problem with that… I got my sim card last night and just havent confirmed fully working MMS. Data works lightning fast with your settings in the first APN settings up above. Original APN settings that came out of ST activation card is garbage!

      Edit: just had my wife sent me a pic message, it received a text saying “message not downloaded” once I tapped on it, it downloaded the pic.

      So I can confirm all settings are working. SONY XPERIA ARC S, previously with dang ATT!

      • WireValley

        I know! Straight Talk’s APN settings were complete garbage. I don’t know what’s going on their end. When I received my order confirmation e-mail even their phone number was listed wrong! They had 1-800 when it’s supposed to be 1-877.

        I’m just glad the service works! I’m glad I could help you too. Also, if you wouldn’t have clicked the “download” button it should download on it’s own in 5 seconds or so and then pop-up like a regular text message :-)

        You can test this. Just send a picture message to yourself. As soon as it starts sending leave your text message screen, set your phone down and wait for it to come down. Should popup like regular message without having to click download :-) You probably just got to anxious and had your phone in your hand waiting to see if it came through.

        • Bushmaster78FS

          Sounds good, one thing I noticed though, I have the sync icon on the notification bar constantly. I went into Accounts and Sync in the phone settings and checked, Picasa Web photos option is constantly syncing. Rebooted, doing the same, I will continue to test. At least I have unlimited data and I don’t have 2GB of pics in picasa anyways. Another friend just confirmed he got my picture text, so everything works for me with your settings. I should post on XDA if you have that thread still going.

          • WireValley

            Just be careful with the unlimited data. You really only get like 2 – 2.5GB. I would tell Picasa to only sync when you’re on wifi. Plus, the constant sync is going to drain your battery.

            Yeah, I posted this fix over on XDA, but not with these “new” updated settings. There were a few minor changes to get it working this good. Feel free to post on XDA though and direct people to this post!

          • Bushmaster78FS

            Do they simply throttle you down or stop your data? I never exceeded 2 GB with ATT but couldn’t use Pandora or anything.

            I guess I will bookmark this blog update and see if there are changes to the settings periodically.

            Now, I wonder same settings would work with iPhone 3GS, my wife’s phone is being ported as we speak.

          • WireValley

            I’ve read that it depends. Must go by where you live and the network area. I’ve read they throttle you and don’t reset at the first day of the next month, I’ve read they just cut you off and you lose your phone #, I’ve read they will call you and speak to you about it to cut back, etc. All I know is that I will never try to go over 2.5GB. If I get the call at 2.1GB, then I will really cut back and never go over again. However, as mentioned in my articles I checked my history back to February with AT&T and never went over 1.8GB as long as I connect to WiFi at work and home.

            Your wife will not get picture messaging on her iPhone with Straight Talk unless you jailbreak it. This is very well known fact on Straight Talk. Apple does not allow you to tinker with the settings as much as Android. This is why I hate Apple so much. They lock their systems down to almost render the user from doing anything with their product.

            Like me on Facebook if you don’t mind! (Like box is on the homepage, top right-hand corner.) You can bookmark too ;-) whatever you prefer.

            If you have more questions or comments, let me know!

          • Bushmaster78FS

            I hate Apple’s guts! But it is also so simple to use for my technology challenged wifey… And not to mention my college is requiring me to get the iPad! I am just disgusted. Do you know an easy non aggressive way to jailbreak the iPhone 3GS? Or a website? I should do that for her phone so there are no complaints about switching from ATT. To me there are no problems, $130 compared to $45 per phone?!?! I will like you on FB sure, also try G+ I am very active and I share a lot there.

          • WireValley

            Nope, sorry. I don’t know anything about Apple products :-( I don’t use them. I was looking on Facebook on my friends iPhone last weekend and I had to ask a couple questions because I didn’t get where the settings button was LOL.

            To be honest, I would just YouTube and learn how to jailbreak. I do know that whenever Apple releases a new update, it locks out your jailbreak and then you have to re-do the process. However, if she’s on the 3GS, I imagine there aren’t anymore updates coming out since it’s an “older” phone, so you would be fine.

        • Bushmaster78FS

          I will confirm the settings on XDA, is your thread still going on there?

  • http://www.facebook.com/andy.brown.79230 Andy Brown

    With the Ongoing Data issues that the ATT Sim have been giving people, I decided to enter the proxy, Everything worked fine except I couldnt get a speed test. Ive been told having a Proxy disables this. Can you confirm this and which is the best setting to have? Proxy or No proxy?

    • WireValley

      Keep the proxy settings. I haven’t had one data issue (or any issues) since I’ve been using the settings above.

      You can download “Internet Speed Test” from the Android market and it’ll give you a speed test. I’m properly 1mbps – 4mbps when running the test. I honestly don’t even worry about the speed tests anymore because my phone works just like it worked when I was with AT&T (except I’m paying half the price). My Pandora loads just fine, and my websites are snappy!

  • Bushmaster78FS

    Try this app and let me know what you think… HiAPN Global (1 Click Surfing)

    looks like it is the only app to back up your APN settings…

  • ian

    wow finally. I have been at this for a week. straight talk tech support could not help they told me to call the company that made my phone for help even though my phone worked fine on at&t and the group texts stopped working on straight talk so its absolutely not the phone!!! but this article worked!!! so psyched, i did not even have to set up a second network, for authentication i only had default checked off, once i checked off supl and mms i can now download all pics and groups texts, yeah!!!!
    ian

    • WireValley

      Awesome! I’m glad I could be of assistance! Don’t forget to “Like” WireValley on Facebook (home page, right-hand corner.)

      If you have more StraightTalk issues, feel free to message me anytime. I’m quick at responding! Once in a while I have to restart the phone cause of bad data connection, but I’m still liking Straight Talk! About to go into my 3rd month :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/hardwarewizard Tim Bo

    I have htc rezound unlocked using ST sim from att and I have voice I can recieve sms but i cant send sms or mms or get on the internet. Could you help me with this issue. I have tried numerous apn’s to no avail

    • WireValley

      Unfortunately, if my *ultimate* APN settings do not work, there’s not a whole lot of support I can offer you.

      Do go over my settings on this post with a fine tooth pick to make sure you have all the settings entered correctly, and on the right line. I would often have at least 1 setting off.

      Next, if that is all correct, I can only recommend factory resetting the phone and starting over. I just re-installed my whole phone’s operating system this past weekend and I had to enter in the APN settings again, and they worked like a charm. Again, my settings above *should* work for any Android phone :-/ Let me know how it goes and if you discover anything!!

  • Peretz

    I hate to be a bother, but would you mind taking pictures of your APN settings and posting them to the article? I’m not entirely clear on the MMSC field for the first APN.

    • WireValley

      I am so sorry for the long delay!! I completely spaced this out… not sure if you figured this out or not already, but screenshots are attached to the post on my blog now. Thanks for the idea. This will come in handy for others as well, I’m sure.

  • http://www.facebook.com/MilesUSA Milos Miles

    i dont know if something is wrong, but i bought Note 2 international factory unlocked and used Tmobile for a while and i had data and mms, but i decided to switch to ST and now, i cant make my data to work :( if someone has and advice please help…i dont want to go back to Tmobile :(

    • WireValley

      Are you using StraightTalk over AT&T or T-Mobiles network? You reviewed the information / pictures above line by line?

  • trouble with mms

    Thank you sooooooo much!!!

  • jimmie

    i have a samsung sidekick 4g, can you help me with
    my straight talk settings, or will the settings above be the same?
    Q 2) my phone use to show (4g) at the top of the screen,
    now it only shows the letter (E) why?

  • txcntrygrlbecks

    Let me just say I googled for 2 hours last night and finally today got this page! I am so happy to have found it because now my beloved ION works!!! Thank you to whoever found these settings. I love my phone and didn’t want to give it up!

  • Darius Little

    Where do u put this in at on the IPhone 4

    • DracoAzule

      You don’t. You have to jailbreak it.

  • katrin thorn

    My phone, text, mms work perfectly. My internet does not seem to work. It does not say Roam and does not show any internet connection. Any idea? Thank you so much for your help!

    • WireValley

      Have you tried deleting your APN and re-entering brand new all over again? That’s where I’d start.

  • layne0

    I just got the Nexus 4 and bought a sim from Straight Talk – had them port over the number. Tried the default Straight Talk settings with no luck, and then tried the setting you suggested with still no luck getting data to work.
    When I get into the diagnostic testing menu by typing: *#*#4636#*#*
    It shows that my GPRS Service is either hung at “Connecting”, or it will say “Disconnected”.
    Have you seen this or anyone else?

    • WireValley

      I have not seen this on the Nexus 4 :-( although, I don’t have this phone. I guess just delete all APNs and keep trying until you find the lucky combo! That’s what I did.

  • Brandon

    Great apn, but I’m having a problem. I used to have HDSPA+ on straight talk, now I only have 3G. Any suggestions? I am rooted but not unlocked.

    • WireValley

      Have you tried to simply delete the APNs and then re-enter brand new? Give that a shot.

  • j.mac

    Been working on this for over three days with Stright Talk and have Googled thousands of sites, Found your Post and Followed it – Seems to be working I now have text talk and data – thanks to you ……Happy Happy Happy.

    • WireValley

      Yup! Should be fine.

    Does this work for all android phones? Should the Xperia U st25i (international) work?

  • BK

    How about settings for a windows HTC 8x with similar issues? I am using the AT&T SIM card and I am unable to receive group texts and picture texts? Are there any ultimate settings for me? Cheers

    • WireValley

      Sorry :-( I don’t do Windows phones. Android only.

  • Gerald

    I have been trying to get data and mms pics to work for the past 48 hours, I was getting NOTHING. I even began to question if AT&T even worked out here. I have been picking through hundreds of pages trying to find the right APN to get this sob working. THANK YOU SO MUCH, this is the FIRST ONE to give me anything. I <3 you….. (posted from Nexus 4 with DATA on straight talk, best deal in the world)

    For anout an hr I could send and receive msg …….Now I can receive txt msg but I can’t reply to them ……..Its driving me crazy ……lol

  • Ann

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S (ATT Capitivate). I bought the Straight Talk sim and installed it. Text worked but the data does not. I called Straight Talk and they were unable to help. They blamed it on the phone manufacturer. I have tried you settings above with the only difference is I don’t have default, supl as an option on the apn type. I only have internet, mms, and internet + mms. I choose internet for the first APN setting. I still can’t get the data to work. Any ideas? Would hate to go back to ATT.

  • manda

    You are awesome! I was really getting ticked of trying to get my data to work!

    • WireValley

      haha! thanks. Glad I could help.

  • Chad

    Does this also allow you to bypass the throttling/data limit?

    • WireValley

      No. Stay under 2.5GB a month. That’s the most I’ve ever used and never got a call.

  • help samsung

    I have a s3 on straight talk my internet is workin amd test messages .. I can recieve mms but cant send any.. what am I doin wrong please help im gettin frustrated

    • WireValley

      Try deleting your MMSC proxy in your first APN setting. Are you running Jelly Bean?

  • Amanda

    THANK YOU! I just spent two days trying to figure out the APN settings for my Galaxy s3 running 4.1.1 with Straight Talk before stumbling upon this post. Your additional information for jelly bean down in the comments is what finally made the difference. I have my 4g up and running!

    • krismyers

      how did you get to the apn settings menu? I don’t even know where to find it.

  • s3galaxyuser9

    Thank you SO much! I spent hours google-ing how to make my MMS work and stumbled across you page. The settings work! You are a lifesaver. Thanks, thanks, thanks.

    • WireValley

      No problem! Glad I could help :-)

  • James

    is this only for AT&T? I am trying to achieve the same – but with a t-mobile S3??? Thanks for the help!

    • http://www.facebook.com/jared.schumer.3 Jared Schumer

      I got the same problem James.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jared.schumer.3 Jared Schumer

    Do these settings apply to a tmobile galaxy S 3 phone? Because I am having no luck with these setting nor will they let me save them. Please help if possible. Thanx

    • Dave

      Hey Jared! I have a t-mobile compatible phone as well. Try changing the APN in both the ST and MMS from att.mvno to wap.tracfone. I just tried that today and both my mms and data are finally working! :)

      • Jess

        Dave – I would love you forever if you listed the 2 apn settings that you used… I use a t-mobile compatible Galaxy s3.

  • http://twitter.com/B3N Ben Hawkins

    This seems like a heaven send, yet I still cannot recieve any MMS. >_> All of the APN settings match on my nexus 4. Perhaps there could be a delayed effect?

    • WireValley

      In the first APN setting, delete the MMS proxy and possibly the mmsc setting. I think this will work. Just make sure you have the second APN (MMS) setting in your phone as well.

  • toya

    Thank u soo much this really helped me! :)

  • Jim

    I’ve entered this like 10 times and whenever I save, it refuses to save it. Any ideas? I have an HTC MyTouch 4g.

    • WireValley

      Are you hitting ‘Save’?
      :-)

      Click your settings button to bring up the menu option and then you can click save.

      • Jim

        Yes, I click save. I even tried editing the existing apn so that everything matches, and when I press save on that, the apn disappears. There is something in there that my phone does not like.

        • chazk87

          I am experiencing the same issue.

  • Matthew Scott

    okay so i had a tmobile g2x and has the tmobile sim card from straight talk. I recently bought an htc one x and unlocked it, well i cut the sim card down to fit in my one x and it works but im only getting EDGE do i need to get the sim for att phone from straight talk or is there a way to get back my 4g speeds that i had on my g2x with straight talk. please help

    • WireValley

      Is this the HTC One X from AT&T? Then yes, you would only get Edge speeds on the phone. AT&T phones do not run compatible with T-Mobiles 3G (HSPA+) network. T-Mobile operates at different frequencies.

  • 02drifter

    i have tried for 2 damn weeks to fix mine, now i find this site follow the directions and whammo it works, you the man thank you

    • WireValley

      Glad I could help! Thanks for the nice comments :-) I appreciate positive feedback. Keeps me logging on to try and help others.

      If you want to see faster results, be able to run speed tests, etc. try deleting the proxy stuff in your APN settings. My phone is much smoother now!

      Go into the first APN and change:

      Proxy:
      Port:

    Still need help on a galaxy note 2 tried I think every setup. any help would be a lifesaver

    • WireValley

      Hi, I’m running the Galaxy Note II now with Straight Talk. Just got it setup about 2 nights ago.

      Try my APN settings on this page, but for the proxy stuff, leave it blank. So in the first APN it should read as:

      Proxy: Not Set
      Port: Not set

      Everything is running successfully for me with Straight Talk/AT&T service.

      • Kurt Ford

        uggh i have a att note II as well so this is pissing me off that mine isn’t working. Did you have to put in the att unlock code for yours to work? I have the APN setting from this post (and tried every other i can find) removed the proxy and port and still no data! All i can do is call and text

  • Josh

    On an unlocked AT&T Sony Xperia Play with unlimited Straight Talk. Tried Straight Talks default APN settings and these suggestions. Can’t seem to get ANY data or multimedia messaging working. Can only use the internet when WiFi is enabled. I’m using a separate APN for MMS like you mentioned, have tried deleting the MMSC proxy from the first, turned the phone on/off countless times after adjusting APNs in order to re-establish my access thinking that will reset something. No luck yet. Kind of a bummer :(.

    • Josh

      I can connect to Edge (2G) when I don’t supply any APN settings (they are set to none or blank) other than a name for the APN. I have also tried setting my APN to wap.tracfone… which had me connect to Edge as well. Also had an multimedia message send when it connected to Edge with no APN settings… For some reason using att.mvno, I cannot get any data connection whatsoever or use MMS. I’m wondering if there are alternate APNs I can connect to that will allow 3G/4G (my Xperia Play is an 800at and says it can do 4G)?

      • WireValley

        Trying my APN settings again, but delete the proxy stuff in the first APN:

        Proxy: Not Set
        Port: Not set

  • John

    I have a htc rezound any ideas why this wont work?

    • WireValley

      In your first APN setting, change the proxy settings to:

      Proxy: Not Set
      Port: Not set

      Having no proxy works MUCH better for me!

  • thumbs

    Just plugged into my Nexus 4 on ST with ATT, and it seems to be working. Thanks a bunch.

  • Dave

    Hey! Thank you so much for posting this! I spent many many hours trying to set up my new straight talk Xperia Tipo and this really helped me to get it working. For some reason the att.mvno APN was not working for me, but after switching that out for wap.tracfone in both APNs, my phone works great! Thank you so much for pointing me in the right direction!

  • Matt

    Hey im wondering if this will work for a droid 3 on verizon thanks you

  • http://www.facebook.com/EgoDevoidOfLogic Jase Dunn

    I just recently bought a Galaxy SII on the Straight Talk network, and just earlier today, the 4g decided it didn’t want to work anymore. I can’t access the internet without connecting it to wifi. I tried looking into the APN settings, but there’s no option to edit them, as far as I can tell. I was on the phone with ST for 2 hours, and they ultimately decided to send me a replacement. This is frustrating to me, as I didn’t spend $300 on a phone, only to be unable to use it to its full capacity.

  • Rich

    Thanks for the post. My phone now works thanks to you..:-)

      Did you enter in the 2nd MMS setting as mentioned in the article? If you did, and nothing is still working, there is 1 more step you need to do (SORRY, I need to update the article)

      1. Edit the first APN setting and completely delete the Proxy.

      2. Completely delete the MMSC.

      3. Completely delete the MMSC proxy.

      4. Save

      Assuming both APNs are entered correctly now (TRIPLE check everything!) you should be in business!

      Let me know,
      Richard

        Tried that, and still won’t seem to send MMS. I am using ST, with one of their AT&T SIM cards, that I got before they stopped selling them…could that be my issue?

        • WireValley

          Nope, that shouldn’t matter. I too am using AT&T and my MMS has always worked with these settings. I discovered that I had to delete the proxy and MMSC stuff after I upgraded to Jelly Bean.

          For your APN, delete att.mvno and try wap.tracfone I’ve never used this one before, but I know it’s another common APN.

          The best I can recommend is to delete both APNs are start from scratch :-/ sorry, I can’t offer much more than that! It’s a bummer these settings just don’t work for everyone since they’ve been so great for me! (sorry, not trying to rub it in) :-)

          • http://www.facebook.com/venessa.lee214 Venessa Lee

            That didn’t fix it either. I got the phone on Monday, and MMS was working until yesterday, so I don’t know what is going on… :/

  • Jared

    alright, you may have covered this earlier but… any way.
    I have a ST Samsung Galaxy S2 S595G that is rooted with CM 10.1. it now says it is a SGH-I777. i can still make calls but at this time it says that there is no internet connection. have been reading the posts and nothing seems to work. do i need to delete all the other APN settings as their are many and just leave the 2 in this post. please help.

    • http://JaredHMinistries.info/ Jared

      ok all works. i have mms and everything else. thank you Richard very much

  • wolfey

    I had this setting and all of a sudden out of no where it just stopped working. can someone please help me

  • BMZII

    Thanx for all the help. I had purchased straight talk for my Samsung Galaxy S3, and had some problems with it, after calling the peeps from ST, still had the same probs. Came to your site and followed your detailed instructions, and BA BAM!! Phone works great have NO problems. Thank You..

  • Don

    NOTE: Had to leave the “//” for MMSC, then it works like a charm!
    Thanks a mil! (Using Galaxy S3)

  • Britt

    OK guys this is just a question…I switched from tmobile to straight talk because where i live they only have 2g….but i am running on 2g with straight talk also. my phone is a tmobile phone but is unlocked…can someone plz help me b cause when u call straight talk they r NO help…im trying to get the 3G

    • Britt

      i dont understand i left tmobile for a reason…they suck

      • WireValley

        Also, please tell me which phone you are using.

    • WireValley

      Straight Talk runs off of the T-Mobile network. They state this on their website when checking out. It says “T-mobile network sim card” Unless.. were you lucky enough to snatch up an AT&T sim card for Straight Talk before Straight Talk got rid of them? This is how I’m currently using the AT&T network with Straight Talk.

    Do you know of any solutions for a verizon phone. i have the samsung Galaxy Proclaim. there is no option for even viewing the APN. only VPN. My mms and Data stopped working 2 weeks after i got the phone. This is my 2nd month. just renewed it hoping it would work but no. please help. ive been searching for over a month now.Thank You.

  • Meisha Lafaye

    i have the HTC One X. what do i set my mms protocol to and instead of MMSC proxy i have mms proxy.

  • Emina Samardzic

    Haloo, I just want to ask is there any way that I can fix my signal strength because I think they send me T-mobile sim card so like when I go to work I don’t have signal inside of building what can I do? Thank you

  • jimbo

    there is a app that you can download to set your straight talk sims its called tweakker

    • Gregory Upson

      Thank you jimbo!! I downloaded this app today and my Android S3 phone is receiving and sending picture messages. You are a life saver!!!!

  • Ria

    Sorry to sound dumb but when entering these two different settings does that mean having to go into APN settings constantly to switch between for internet and mms needs? I don’t understand how they can work dually..

    • WireValley

      Don’t worry about it :-)

      No you do NOT need to switch back and forth. When you enter in the MMS APN it will know it’s specifically for MMS, and it’ll actually be grayed out so you can’t even select it :-) this is how it works.

  • Dariae

    Maybe lm not looking hard enough but I don’t see settings for T mobile. I have a Note 2 And my mms doesn’t work. Could yoo please give me settings for that if u have them

    • WireValley

      APN Name. any
      APN. wap.tracfone
      proxy. blank
      port. 8080
      mmsc. http://mms.tracfone.com

      • Dariae

        I have both apn settings entered. But I still can’t send or receive mms. Also thanks for the reply.

  • britni

    I have a Samsung galaxy s with st and suddenly can’t make or recurve calls.or texts.help please

  • BJB

    I upgraded to ICS and lost my APN settings on Straight Talk. Thanks for helping me restore my 4G. However, I’ve always had problems sending MMS or replying to iPhone group messages. I just get the moving circle. The weird thing is, it “sometimes” works. I’ve googled this issue for months and I’m at the point of giving up. i have the correct settings for threading group conversations and making Handcent the default (and I’ve tried other apps, including the stock). I have a Galaxy S2, ATT. Am I just out of luck?

  • http://www.facebook.com/charles.parody.5 Charles Parody

  • tiffany

    How do you take screetshots on a straight talk smart phone?

    • WireValley

      Is your phone rooted? If not, then you will have to download some generic app from the app store.

  • http://www.facebook.com/karissa.bowen.35 Karissa Bowen

    Hello!!! so i bought a note android 4.1.1 and im using straight talk my phone works awsome beside i cant recive or send any mms..or use the internet without wifi and i have tried all of this a couple of times by resting the apns on here and still no luck :( any other suggestions?

    • OopsieDizzy

      I am having this same problem! Karissa did you ever figure it out?

  • Gregory Upson

    I have a Android S3, it is a T-Mobile phone. I have tried to enter the codes but when I go to save the first APN it doesn’t do anything. It won’t allow me to change it. Could someone let me know what I need to do please?

  • Angie Ingrassia – Rue

    you are so freaking awesome!!! Thank you so for this website, you got my phone working frist time around :-) I have googled and googled everywhere and yours is the only thing that worked!!! THANK YOU!!!

  • jamie

    Hello. I have an at&t Samsung galaxy s3 and am trying to unlock it for Straight Talk. I have my sims card in it and am able to make calls but cant send pics or receive them nor can I get on the internet. I have entered in the information you provided but I am not able to get on the internet still…unless theres wifi around. I tried downloading tweakker but it wont download for some reason. Do I even need tweakker if I use the info you provided? Thanks so much!

    • WireValley

      Remove proxy… the only sections you should have are the APN: att.mvno

      APN Type: default,supl

      Create a separate APN for MMS.

  • LATOYA

    hey everything is working fine except the internet. it keeps saying no network connection???? HELP

    • WireValley

      Remove proxy. Just put in the APN (att.mvno)

      • Katrice Hull

        do you mean to leave the proxy blank for the straight talk apn setting? my network connection is flaky

  • http://twitter.com/xiann Christiann MacAuley

    These totally worked for me today. Thanks!

  • Marlon

    THANK YOU!!!!! I just used this on my Galaxy Note from ATT now on ST. Everything is working. Couldnt be happier.

  • Katrice Hull

    my phone only allows me to select one APN setting at a time. are you saying that we would have to switch apns everytime we want to use mms??

    • WireValley

      No. Just enter mms and you’ll see ;-)

      • Katrice Hull

        my 4g signal looks a little better (for now) but when i place a call it says “out of service area” and disconnects even if I had full 4g and all 5 bars when dialing…

        • WireValley

          You’ll have to tinker with settings. Try not using proxy, use proxys, try att.mvno, etc.

          • Katrice Hull

            i removed everything that said proxy anything and still no change. so then i removed proxy and ports. :(

  • Keith

    Thanks Richard! Both, settings Works prefect for my Galaxy S4!

  • Vella

  • OopsieDizzy

    this worked for my last phone and I thank you so much! So I thought that I would ask you if you could help with a straight talk L38G LG Optimus Dynamic phone, I am getting zero service in my current location, so I suppose it is not connected to our AT&T tower. How do I change the APN for this phone? How do I get it to use the AT&T network so the phone will work? I could really use your help, Thanks.

    • WireValley

      Have you gone to Settings >> Mobile Networks >> Access Point Names >> and then enter these two APN settings.

      • OopsieDizzy

        one of the problems that I am having is being unable to find out where the APN settings are at in this darn phone! I can’t even activate the phone and I have spoken with Straight Talk Customer Service 3 times now. The phone keeps searching for service making it impossible for me to activate the phone. The guy told me that I need to get into a location to get serivce then it will activate when I call *22801 but intil then I’m stuck. So I thought if I could change the access point to AT&T (like all of my other phones) then we would be in business. I just can’t find the darn APN area. :(

        • OopsieDizzy

          The phone number has already been transfered to the phone to. according to the straight talk account and customer service.

    Hello, I need help with an iphone 4 . I had att and ported my number to straighttalk. i have the sim card in and can call and text… i am trying to do the APN update but it says “not verified” does anyone know how to fix this I can’t access the internet at all.

  • Elissa

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 that worked perfectly for a week after using an ATT sim card in it. All of a sudden it rebooted itself and since I can’t send or receive pics, my 4g is gone, but my internet, phone and text all work. Any ideas?

    • WireValley

      Trying deleting the APN settings and re-enter them. If that doesn’t work, then try resetting the phone. Also, did you drop your phone at all? Sometimes the sim card gets un-aligned. Go ahead and take the sim card out and put it back in. That’s happened to be a few times.

      Let me know!

  • steve

    Everything on my phone is greyed out and cannot select anything to change. Its like I’m locked out

      You need to create a new APN then.

        Hello Wirevalley,
        I just bought a Samsung S3 from Walmart for Straight Talk that uses Verizon towers. I don’t have an option to change the APN numbers under settings, more settings,Mobile networks, then all I have is the option for Mobile data, on or off.
        Do you know how to access the APN setting on this phone?
        Thanks,

    Thanks for the settings! This is the first post I have read that has talked about having to use a different setting for mms! Now my old texts I could read are able to download!! Thanks again!

  • Jae

    Good morning; may I preface by saying I have not yet tried your APN settings – I have my Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 working on the StraightTalk network – voice, text, mms and data. However, I am only getting Edge network speeds for my data – it’s my understanding that this is due to the frequency limitations of the actual phone and not due to my settings.

    Two questions: What sort of speeds are you getting with your settings? Are you able to get 3G or 4G speeds? And second, are you able to talk and use data at the same time?

    Thank you in advance for the information! :D

  • jlawson
