02-28-2013, 07:48 AM #1Received Straight Talk SIM but not AT&T but T-Mobile. Having trouble configing APN
Back story. I gave my old GSM iPhone 4 previously running ST with no issues to my girlfriend. I ported her Verizon number to the her new iPhone 4 (my old) when I received her ST SIM. I did not know that ST no longer sells AT&T SIMs and we were shipped a T-Mobile SIM. I cannot get her APN settings config'd right. I tried matching mine that I had on that phone before and that I am running on my 4S using TetherMe. Basically she cannot send MMS to a non-iPhone. This is a business phone of hers and I need to help her to get it working correctly as soon as possible.
Also she is not getting 3G but is stuck in Extended. I hear that T-mobile does not have great 3G coverage yet and is still expanding. I assume that she should be able to send pics while in E network.
My only alternative is to drop the cash and pick up a AT&T SIM off of Ebay.
Any help/advice you can give will be greatly appreciated.

From what I can find, you still use att.mvno, you shouldn't need tetherme if you already cellular data tab in your settings, but can't see why it would be an issue if you kept it.
A call to Straight Talk customer service may help you if these fixes don't work.

Found this post.
1.) Get a T-mobile micro sim card
2.) Start Iphone and let boot up. Then take out ST sim card
3.) Place the T-mobile sim card in and let it connect to network
4.) Under general and cellular there is cellular data option
5.) Under cellular data you see fields for Data APN an MMS
6.) At this point double hit home button at the bottom to open camera or some other app
7.) Then take out T-mobile sim and place ST sim card into phone
8.) Right away, double hit home key and pick settings button at the bottom
9.) The Data APN and MMS settings window should pop up. Let it connect to Straight Talk Network. Enter in the info below after that:
data apn: att.mvno
mms apn: att.mvno
MMS proxy: 184.108.40.206:80
Max Size of Message: 1048576
10.) After click back upto and it should store the settings. You can click cellular data to check if the settings are in.
11.) I had to repeat the process twice before it took.

Been reading a bunch and watching You Tube vids and this method seems to work the best for people. All settings should be saved after a reboot.
