Welcome | Straight Talk | Bring Your Own Phone
Starting Feb 7th 2012, Straight Talk will offer BYOD. Just found this out because someone posted a question about it on their facebook. I was working on getting my e71 activated and number ported when I read about it.

But there in Cydia is TetherMe from BigBoss repo. It will allow you to edit APN file.
Install it. Close Cydia. Go to Settings->TetherMe->Cellular Data Network.
In case of Straighttalk insert this:
MMS Proxy: 188.8.131.52:80 or mms2.tracfone.com:80
MMS Max Size: 1048576
MMS UA Prof URL: http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf
leave the rest blank.
It works right away. But before editing remove any previous APN settings (like in my case I uninstalled StraightTalk.mobilconfig).
P.S. In case of any other than Straighttalk provider inseart proper APN settings.
